Mod abuse   The Players have Mod buddies that abuse their powers.

I was ingame one day and got into an arguement with a player named SARATOGA. He didn't like what was said and decided to tell me he will get his Platoon buddy (Which was a mod) to ban me.

And he did...for 7 days(Chat ban)

I just received a Game mail (Game messaging system) titled: "lmfao" from SARATOGA with "enjoying your vacation????"

Games and their actions against other players should not be disclosed whatsoever. Obviously his Mod/GM buddy told him he banned me so SARATOGA could rub it in.

I will not be buying this game at release and I warn you all to pass this on to others.

 

"windsoul1967,



SARATOGA has sent you a new personal conversation entitled "lmfao".



SARATOGA said:

======================================================================

enjoying your vacation???

======================================================================



PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL!

You can reply to this personal conversation by following the link below:"

 

Rubbing in the fact that he got his Mod buddy to ban me is the lowest of the low and as in another topic here, these Mods must be horrible.

Take care all.

    They do indeed censors your post and the like. They can come here and deny it, but I know. If they dont like what you say about the game they claim its not constructive go figure.

  • cludinskcludinsk Member Posts: 59

    it's a free game, you dont need to buy it.

    it's counterstrike with tanks. the gameplay is fun, if you can refrain from getting into pissing matches with mods in chat. personally i never open general chat.

  • intoExileintoExile Member Posts: 48

    Thanks for the info, guess I'll stay clear of this game.

  • carlrcarlr Member Posts: 31

    Windsoul, you were banned for giving away  team positions to the enemy and your language. It had nothing to do with the arguement.

    SARATOGA Also recieved a day ban for posing as a Moderator, and if he does another such PM let me know and i'll add harrassment to his file.

     

     

    Smintar, do you really expect mods to keep topics alive that are  "This game sucks! dont play!"  or "SPG is OP i'm quitting unless this is changed" and so on, there is offical topics for these type of comments which are generally not helpful in anyway.  if you post in the proper offical topics for such things then it wont be removed or cencored (as long as you keep it clean).  if you try to make a whole new topic then likely it'll just get tossed into the junk pile and locked, we dont need 100's of SPG and Detection system bashing topics.

    If you even glimpse at the general chat, you deserve a ban. Trust me he did a favour. You don't want to read/chat in the general chat in any game. You really don't want to do that.

    I actually played in the beta and NEVER felt any need to write a single word in the chat (actually, i just ignored/closed it). You get in, shootshootshoot, get out. It's not Second Life or Habbo Hotel... :|

    I'll follow up with one more post on this with a real example of what goes on with the WoT Devs/Mods.





    Wotplayer: Something seems to be wrong with the higher tier German tank destroyers as I am being spotted by the enemy before anyone even when I am hiding in a bush on the other side of the map behind my teammates.





    WotDEV/MOD: You don't know how to play the game, learn to drive a TD before you complain.





    WotPlayer: I have played over 2000 battles in the German tank destroyers, and I am telling you that something seems wrong with the way the higher level German TDs are being spotted.





    WotDEV/MOD: Again learn to play, stop complaining or you will get a 5 day ban.





    Then someone hacked the data file and found out the tank specs and posted them for people to see. They show that the higher tier German tank destroyers have almost no camo (hide) ability. The person that posted the info and anyone that linked or even talked about it is banned.





    Then in general chat in game (No exaggeration on this),



    Wotplayer: Why are people being banned from the game/forum when all they are trying to do is help with beta? People have been saying something was wrong with the higher German tds camo and now we find we have been lied to all this time about it. why?





    WotDev/mod: Are you some Nazi? Why is it all you want to do is drive German tanks?





    Yeah, just wow.

    Not trying to defend the game, but LOL? It doesnt have any content to begin with in the first place.

     

    Ofc if you mean grinding as content then obviously at T10 there's nothing to do. Duh

    I gave this game a shot just before it went open beta, and I must say I enjoy it.

     

    I have been a gamer for many years, and have had my fling with mmorpgs for about a decade besides having a soft spot for fps-games.

    As I now have a life (career, wife, kids, house) I enjoy the fact that I can pop in, get a few kills and pop out without organising my life around a game. The pace is just perfect. Not saying the game is, but when I read the name of this thread I felt the need to be the voice of reason/maturity.

     

    World of Tanks is a good compromise. It gives me incentives to keep playing (upgrades and customization), but doesn't take up half  my life.

    Sounds about right, for their developers. They never really listened to player feedback in beta. Like most developers, they have a "vision" of what they want the game to be. And any critical comments about the vision tend to get you banned, removed from beta, and that sort. In the end, I left because nothing is ever balanced. There are problems with people abusing bad latency..racist and vile comments made, and nothing done. And just plain cheatin' are pretty rampant.

      well thx mate, very constractive and informational post :) here are example for ppl  - we will always delete such posts and their owners will get their RO status

    it is way to offensive - dont you think so? learn manners, cause it seems that it is you have recently climbed down from the tree

     

    This right here is enough to keep me from playing the game.



     

    Mediahead, from the way you speak you act as a representative of the company producing the game; and your conduct towards others reflects terribly upon not only yourself but the company as a whole. For starters your grammar is atrocious at best, and do not give me the whole "Oh English isn't my first language" crap. Normal individuals can use this excuse but someone who is acting as a voice for a company should at least take the time to post in an intelligent manner. Secondly insulting someone while acting official is disgraceful to your company and the industry at large; stop acting like a child throwing a temper tantrum. Your last line was completely uncalled for and extremely unprofessional. If you don't like what a detractor is saying then explain yourself in a professional manner.

    I was fairly interested in this game, and I know better than to just listen to the hate machine which normally graces threads on this site; but if this Mediahead is any indication of the caliber of people working on this title then I have absolutely no interest in it.

    My posts above does look a bit hostile, but the WOT devs/mods/admins have lost all my respect after watching the way they have treated people on the forums and in game. I do not bother to post in their forums as I don't want to even give them the chance at seeing my opinion and IP in the same place.

     

    I really was hyped and interested in this game when I first played, but as time went on that changed because of the people running it.

  • hardiconhardicon Member UncommonPosts: 335

    nobody ever got a ban of any kind for saying german td's need to be looked at.  what they did get banned for is releasing data that wargaming dont want released which is how camo works and stuff like that.  cant blame the company there, if someone hacked the system and got information they are not supposed to get then they deserve to get banned, hacking into a company database is illegal.  you can have plenty of discussions on the boards about the tanks themselves and we can put up valid arguments about why something does not work or is not working correctly but you cant just go on their website and say the game sucks or camo sucks, that is not constructive and does nothing to convey they problem.

    now i do love the game and yeah wargaming is a little slow to address stuff and seem abrasive at times in their responses but then again most of us live in the united states of the offended and get our panties in a wad over just about anything.  i just wish wargaming would be more open to responding quickly to player concerns but overall the game itself is solid, just stay off the boards and i havent been banned yet for going off on teammates that did dumb stuff a few times. 

    this game does have some issues with game mechanics but i got to say balance i think is fine, just certain game mechanics need to be tweaked and they are being tweaked to work correctly.  if you want a fun tank game, this is a great game, 4300 battles or so and im still having fun which is more than i can say for most games that i put this amount of hours into.

    The difference though is you aren't acting in an official manner; you're a regular joe just like most of the posters in this forum. As such you can act however you want and it would only reflect upon yourself. Mediahead however is in a position of an official nature, and as such his actions reflect that of not only himself but also the company for whom he works for.

    Plus, as far as I see your post wasn't near as bad as some of the things I've seen posted on this site. Believe me.

  • MentatMentat Member UncommonPosts: 516

    wow OP, sounds like you not only deserve the ban but, shouldn't play games with others...

    That's highly unsportsman-like of you. I for one and the opposite of impressed with you and your post here.

    OMFG unprofessional is one way to put it, but the nazi comment is just plain WTF

    tbh this is enough reason to steer clear... (im not saying this is what people should do)

    Pity they act in such a way as they have a nice game on their hands

     

     

    I had a month long issue with my username/password & couldnt get sense out of them,

    ticket after ticket, it took major whinning to get into the game due to a bug on there site

    preventing me from logging in or re-registering.

     

    My experience with their staff was eyeopening to say the least, & seriously annoyed me,

    only for the fact the game looked so good that i persisted for them to sort my issue.

    To be honest, I enjoy tanks, I have not played in a while tho been playing to much wow, that aside I would have to say that I am no sheep, unlike the majority of people here, so unless any of you can link a screen shot, or proof that these conversasions took place, I will chock them up to hot air and ignore them.

    Something I think people should be aware of is that not everything you read on a forum is true, people need to screw their brains in a little tighter and develope and original thought once in a while instead of just sucking up every random bit of verbal crap they read on forums.

    So in short : screen shot or it didnt happen.

    It seems many nations in Europe still have a bone to pick with Germany and will not allow for German tanks to be considered as powerful as they actually where, let alone the fact that Many from Eupore or even further East such as Russia will think of you as a nazi when you try to defend Germany in any way or point out mistakes that benefit anything to do with germany of WWII.

     

    I have been in many arguments with Europeaners or those of further East regions about some of the causes of WWII and why Germany did what they did... it almost always boils down to Germans were evil and should have all died. So either I am talking with the wrong people form Europe, or people from that region and its surrounding regions can not let go of events that are over 60 years in the past.

     

    I would say half of the US are already over 9/11, and that hasn't even been 15 years, let alone the fact that most forgave the Japanes and Germans after WWII was over. Ya we didn't suffer as much at the hands of either, but the animosity is still there.

    The game seems a good temporary time killer all in all, but looking at the piss poor conduct of the game's moderators I would rather pass on this one.

     

    Even if all this talk about their mods being a stuck up bunch of dictatorial children is heresy, I can only imagine how offensive the chat in game is going to be...such games about the "dark past" of countries only brings out the worst in fanatical gamers and the morally-confused patriotic sorts when tanks start getting blown up and tensions start running high.

    yep, and it has happened a number of times... often these are the ones who think they did nothing wrong and come to places like here when they've recieved a ban for their offencive or insulting remarks, either in the game or/and then the forums... then we get shunned as power abusers and cencoring.... 

    this isnt a typical unmodderated MMO where you can say what you want, threaten who you want and TK up the wazzo, were a active bunch dedicated to keeping the game clean and safe for the players... but for that were "abusive" and "censor what we dont like".
