In the wee hours of August 12th, in one of the CC-Discord channels in front of everyone, a Wargaming employee decided to contradict me, belittle me and ignore evidence I was providing, all the while barking at me to show them respect. This is them "communicating better". It's completely unacceptable were it just an isolated incident. It's made hilariously bad in that it all but repeats what happened to Chobi and I leading up to the Yukon incident where a Wargaming employee contradicted us, belittled us and ignored the evidence we were providing regarding our work on Yukon. It took them almost an hour to finally apologize and admit they were wrong in this case, but only after other CCs had to dog-pile onto the situation.
Wargaming has violated our agreement. It only took six weeks for Wargaming to go back on their word.
I approached Sub_Octavian in an effort to repair matters. Given Wargaming's lack of updates on West Virginia, another ship they promised, trusting them to complete Huron is foolish. I told him that Wargaming has demonstrated that they cannot be trusted to honour their word. I needed a commitment from him to deliver three things:
1. To work on repairing their corporate culture.
2. To provide regular updates on Huron's progress.
3. To add Sackville's camo to Yukon.
Sackville's camo represents two things for me. First, it's tangible proof that Wargaming takes the above issue seriously and is willing to deliver something on the short term beyond simple apologies or vague, unbacked promises of a future project they may or may not deliver in a year's time. Second, it honours the time and energy Chobittsu and I put into the Yukon project over sixteen months.
Sub_Octavian agreed to points #1 and #2, but not #3.
They do not respect the time and energy Chobi and I put into the project or presently in the game. They see it as their right to mistreat Community Contributors and players and expect empty promises and hollow apologies to smooth things over. They have demonstrated they will do this repeatedly.
Enough is enough.
Effective immediately, I am resigning from the Community Contributor program.
