LOL, I gather you haven't heard that WG will unban all banned accounts soon as part of 10 yr anniversary amnesty.

 

(except accounts banned after the announcement, so don't get any ideas).



Seriously? From where did you get this information?

After watching the OP replay it could be argued that said drowner was trying to avoid being shot by the T95 and drowned "unintentionally" in the process. Hence the lack of ban. Not saying it was deliberate or not - but any doubt generally goes in the favour of the one drowning. Plus I would hope they checked how regularly the player did it etc.

There will certainly be plenty of interest in whatever WG do in regard to the "amnesty". Unsure what they are thinking to be honest - surely it is not an attempt to boost numbers as most would have either accepted the account reset or simply created a new account?

All previously banned accounts? That is not how I read the announcement but will be looking with great interest nevertheless. 

 

Stewiejp, correct it may not apply to all banned accounts.

 

Couldn't agree more regarding what WG were thinking - it looks like a desperate grab for players, considering how few of these accounts are likely to be active again (outside of an alternate account for trolling).

It boggles the mind. They must be desperate for player numbers

Nobody likes a snitch.

 

When we were growing up at school, we were actually taught that nobody likes a snitch, it was a lesson learned from the dystopian fascist societies that were defeated in WW2, i guess.

 

As to people drowing themselves. Think to the iconic Aussie song 'Waltzing Matilda' and the line "You'll never take me alive says he!" after which the said bushranger apparently gave them the middle finger and drowned himself in the nearby billabong, thus escaping justice. Aussies love that guy.

 

Does 1AR actually allow little snitches to stay in thier clan? It is a petty little act that you would expect from a kiwi to be honest, OP needs to be kicked from the clan and join one of the lame kiwi clans..

How about blocking the drowning points with invisible barriers, the same way that they blocked climbing? Save a lot of hassle, the snitches, the staff resources needed to deal with the tickets, the banned players that would otherwise be playing...

 

This simple solution has been pointed out for years and years, Wargaming, are not a solution driven company though unfortunately....

Going back to 0.7.X? Yeah, but drowning enemies is part of the rulebook for KV-5 players...

Drowning yourself to escape justice is part of the Australian ethos. There are many that think this should be the national anthem.

Or just change the economics of drowning. The only people who lose out unnecessarily are the drunk drivers.

Ohh Vindi, you got the wrong end of the dog mate...

 

Drowning yaself isn't evading justice, its poor sportsmanship. Its denying another player of a victory by pulling the stumps out of the ground and walking off with a dropped bottom lip.

 

And no Aussie likes that, not one bit.

 

And sure, you wouldn't go runnin to the teacher about it, but we can't just drag the sod behind the sheds and rough him up here in World of Tanks, so we'll have to settle for the next best thing...


WARNING!!! THE ABOVE POST WILL CONTAIN SARCASM. My day job does not allow sarcasm, so its use may be obscure and liberal.

Sarge: What a way to go. Killed by my own mechanical creations. I'm sure there's a philosophical lesson to be learned from all this.
Simmons: Something about the dangers of technology and the unwavering pride of mankind?
Sarge: No, something about hiring better help that doesn't just stand around watching you die!

I don't believe we should kill all the stupid people. Just remove some of the warning signs and let nature take its course...
