Hello Pilots

 

Last August, we revamped our Rule Violation policy, introducing rewards for good player behavior, and strikes for poor behavior. In the first three months of the revamp, 376 players received in-game strikes, 670 players received chat strikes, and 429 received forum strikes. In contrast, hundreds of thousands qualified for good behavior rewards!

 

Overall, we’re seeing fewer repeat offenders, and the number of players receiving bans has decreased since we started this new policy.

Technical difficulties delayed good behavior rewards in November, but a reward has been distributed as a token of appreciation! We apologize for the delay. All players who logged in and played at least one battle from August to October and received no strikes in game, chat, or forum will get a special emblem.

I'm guessing these numbers include the WoT population as well.

Same. Somehow I assumed if a strike was given, I'd get some notification of it, but nope.

I guess I must have a strike as well.  However the original post with the new rules clearly stated that players WOULD be informed.  So do I have a strike or not??

How Strikes Work

Previously, violations would “roll off” and no longer count against you after a certain period of time. This left open the possibility for people to “game the system” by improving behavior only long enough to let their violation roll off.

Under the new policy:

  • Players will receive one warning, and each offense afterwards will then count as a “strike” against the account.

 

Just noticed that below "Member since" there is a link that says "0 warning points" on my post.  Guess I don't have a strike???  So where's the emblem??

Sigh...

 

No in game strikes

No chat strikes

No forum strikes

 

And no emblem either.... I guess my name will be mysteriously excluded from the draw for real prizes as well.

So good behavior was rewarded with yet another glitch? I agree with SOJO...keep your rewards, I'm not a dog to be bought off with a bone.
