Some people from the WoT NA server contacted me. It seems like someone tried to make WGNA look like the bad guys, without much success though. But I am asking you, readers. Is it a leak/NDA break if WG NA plays an upcoming premium tank (Rheinmetall Skorpion G) that everyone on TAP already knew about? I don’t think so. I just think they had to do it, to show people how the tank destroyer works. I applaud WGNA for generating the much needed hype and playing the tank in random battles so everyone can see how it’s like. WG did generate hype before, so it’s something normal for them to do it again. What happens afterwards? WG gives the Skorpion for free to streamers/youtubers etc for promotion. Nothing out of the ordinary, in my opinion.
If anyone remembers, Quickybaby played the Rheinmetall Skorpion last year at Gamescom, so WG had to show it off too before they released it. It’s the usual routine, as with other new premiums that appeared in the past.
A contest for the tank was announced 2 days ago here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_2lRwV6Kq8 and it was posted that it would be on sale on August 18th here: http://worldoftanks.com/en/news/pc-browser/22/august-overview/
I don’t see promoting/reviewing upcoming content by WG themselves as an NDA break, but as something we should be satisfied with.
I think the WG NA guys do their job well. Especially MeatheadMilitia (he was the one who streamed the tank, generating the „controversy”), he beats everything WG EU has to offer in terms of staff. Even if we don’t post the Focus Friday/WG Wednesday videos, I really like WGNA for trying to appeal to their community, even with all the WG fiascos that made NA lose players.
Stats of the Rhm. Skorpion (from tanks.gg):
