what ever happened to them not posting until they completed the tutorial in game ? A minimal set of battles prior to posting say like 3-5

 

You would still need to leave the New Player Help sub forum open for those having trouble even getting into the game. The spam is nuked in a few minutes on both the WoT & WoWS forums so is not a real problem there but for some reason they some times leave it up on this forum for hours.

Because the WG finance dept. needs more money to pay their employees.

Call me cynical if you want, but if it was not the truth it would be gone in 60 seconds.

Meanwhile they laugh at us complaining about it.

They could let go customer service, they have proven since the beginning that they cannot even tell you what day it is

 

- It's like throwing money away by keeping them on the payroll, they serve no purpose other than to discourage people 

 

Of course clearly the forum mods are not doing their jobs at all so they can be dismissed as well, pretty clear cut but WG generally doesn't see problems that smack them back and forth in the face.

And from a newly created, 0-battle account. Which was ostensibly supposed to stop happening.

Hello Pilots,

 

We are aware of ongoing issues with spam bots flooding the forum with posts during off hours. We are working to prevent this from happening and are also pursuing legal recourse. Thank you for your patience as we work to prevent this from happening.

 

So how's that legal recourse coming along? The same contact info has been used within the messages since the onset of this. Advertising identity theft has to be on some authorities' radar. Has this guy actually been reported to anybody?

It wouldn't be a weekend without this garbage polluting the forums AGAIN, and WGNA continuing to ignore the solution (which was in place under a previous Community Manager)

WGNA continues to ignore the solution

I reported all the spam more than 2.5 hours ago. 15 minutes ago, an admin was logged in to the forums, now logged off. Today's spam still sits here.

 

WGNA, do you care?

No, of course they don't care!  If they don't care enough to fix the enormous number of problems with the actual game itself, they certainly don't care about the forums.

I guess these mods/admins just ignore reported posts here

at it again this morning

 

reported about 1/2 of them, noticed an admin on the forums (scammer is too), will see if they get taken care of, or ignored

2 hours later, same admin is back on the forums, all the crap is still here

 

again I say, WGNA simply does not care; if they did, this would not be an ongoing issue

They care on the games they care about

 

Tanks and Ships were cleansed of the spam already today while we get to sit here and suffer

 

Hope they don't wonder why we have no respect for them, have to give it 1st
