Or maybe it’s just a wishful thinking, but I got a surprising e-mail from Wargaming that made me laugh. Not with them, at them.
It really feels like Wargaming becomes desperate after collapse of their Community Contributors program in Summer 2021, after which a lot of prominent streamers reduced the number of WOWS videos on their channels or moved to another titles.

If you missed the sh*tstorm that just keeps on giving, the Community Contributors walkout in World of Warships, don’t worry, nothing particularly interesting happened. Except Wargaming apologized again. Well, sort of...
Do you remember The Simpsons? You know, that TV series that once was funny, before it became the forgotten, although still going TV series. Wargaming just got to the new level of pathetic detachment from reality, just like The Simpsons.
It may come as complete shock to you, but Google, a company that started and buried dozens of new projects in last 20 years, is about to do it again. This time it will be their half-hearted venture into cloud gaming field, Google Stadia, which looks more and more like ghost ship.
