Dear Players..


We reside in a large, island based region ... for which some island's ownership (islands/oceans/seas/etc) are in dispute between more than one country..

As such, players occasionally attempt to create account usernames referring to disputed islands (islands/oceans/seas/etc), to put forward their political view onto others.


We have prohibited the usage of naming accounts in this manner for new accounts for a long time...

Please refer to this 2015 announcement

And section 4.05 and 4.06 of the Game Rules


1. Its possible for players to bypass protection by altering the name slightly.

2. Occasionally we have transfers of players who have prohibited naming, when they transfer.


So as usual and as per the past ..

We have continued to enforce our naming policy's , which prohibit controversial usernames... by forcibly renaming / forcing to rename players who are named after disputed islands/oceans/seas/etc


The WOT playing grounds, is not a political playground.


Have fun, and a great week..
