„It is unfortunate that there is some very poor reporting being done, because this section of the EULA is not new and will not change how we treat anyone. Here is a link to the 2015 EULA which contains the same language.
Regarding the SirFoch incident, that was sparked by an erroneous and regrettable statement made by an employee who had neither the authority nor ability to go through with placing copyright strikes on anyone. It has never been and will never be our policy to make copyright strikes against content creators, and we have directly apologized for one of our staff making the implication.
The section of the EULA currently being discussed is aimed specifically at giving us properly codified recourse against “fan” sites who use WoT logos/other things alongside other content that we might find objectionable. To use examples that have actually happened, neo-Nazi propaganda and pornography. We have not and will continue to not take any such actions against legitimate fansites who happen to criticize Wargaming.
To anyone who thinks we make a habit of exercising censorship against critical viewpoints, I encourage you to spend literally any time at all in this General Discussion forum. We remove and sanction posts that violate forum rules (Mainly inappropriate language, incitement of harassment, and people who wear socks with sandals), but critical opinions are fair game.
As always, we appreciate your feedback and hope to see you on the battlefield.”
