SerB is no longer an employee of Wargaming!
On 25 February’s afternoon, Sergey Burkatovsky, known to veterans as SerB, the former creative director of Wargaming, posted a Facebook post saying:
“I support the operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the DPR and the LPR. The rest are nuances. (translated.)”
The post in support of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine vanished very quickly, and Wargaming released a statement:
“Sergey is an employee of the company and expressed his personal opinion, which categorically does not coincide with the position of the company. All our forces are now focused on helping our over 550 colleagues from Kyiv and their families.”
Two days ago, there was info that SerB had parted ways with Wargaming:
“Broke up with WG.

Our colleagues at rykoszet asked Wargaming representatives for comments on this situation. After a few moments, they received a laconic response:
“Sergei’s opinion is in complete contradiction with the company’s position. He is no longer an employee of Wargaming.”
The techraptor.net portal also announced that Wargaming decided to suspend the display of World of Tanks and World of Warships ads due to the military equipment that appears on them which may cause negative associations. It also encourages its partners to remove similar material. “Non-military” ads are OK. The reason is “the situation in the world”.
