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. Now WG is sending bizarre e-mails to inactive users, like me, who got tired of their constant introduction of more and more broken mechanics into World of Warships.

Cyberpunk 2077, a game with one of the worst premieres in modern times, just became a Game of the Year! No, you didn’t wake up in some parallel universe, although... I’m not that sure to be honest.
The post-apocalyptic TV series The Walking Dead was almost an instant hit - the story of Rick Grimes and other people stuck in the middle of a zombie apocalypse brought millions of fans to the AMC channel. Until one thing happened. Yup, it’s another one bad idea that irreversibly ruined a good project.
At least according to youtuber CoryxKenshin, who started a storm about being victim of racism or favouritism within youtube. Yes, boys and girls, he is convinced that robots are out to get him. I thin...
