Ok, guys, seriously. We're talking 10 premium ships raffled away. Not a super-discount on something, not a promotion, not a mission where you can get a ship, not a premium british container for everyone - ten ships. How is it worth even wiping dust off a pitchfork, never mind waving one around?...

Because that is how the world works.

Different markets get treated differently. Using the same sales strategy everywhere is economic dilettantism.

One reason would be WG always struggled on NA market, be it with tanks, planes and boats. EU on other hand is long established, so there is little incentive to throw stuff at EU players, unless some server wide boycott happens. And no, forum active players are like 5% of active population, so even if everyone from the forum would quitt the boats game, it would be hardly noticeable from WG economy point of view.

That actually depends. Remember, this is a f2p game, meaning most of the people that play it will never pay anything, along with a fair amount of people at best paying once. It survives on players buying doubloons/premium time/ships etc. on a consistent basis and the players that do that are few in number (usually between 1 and 5%). So even if forum users represent only ~5% of the active playerbase, that still could be a huge chunk, even the entirety of their regular income (extremely unlikely, but possible).

 

I honestly couldn't care less about some raffle on NA that EU doesn't get, just attempting to clarify things.

Looks like you are interpreting too much into my post...

 

Maybe you should read the post before mine and then read mine again. Just a hint.

from what I understand NA is a smaller base and this game doesn't sell as well there as it does here.  It's business sense.  You're not going to reward hardcore dedicated customers that will spend time and money on something that you know is a safe income.  You have to bribe those who aren't interested enough to dedicated the time and effort.  I myself am American and prefer these types of games.  American gamers are more invested in FPS and instant action along with RPGs.  A lot of combat simulators (regardless of how arcadey they are) don't gain traction there like it does here.

It's all over Reddit.

 

Tl;Dr WG staff got devstriked by a member of a division. He reported all members of the division. Instant warnings given to all 3 by the CS NA team. Thread in Reddit to expose this. Sub_Octavian gets involved and discovers at least 2 warnings had no justification but they find some dirt on one of the three regarding chat profanity and keep his warning. Reddit goes up in arms. Sub_Octavian creates Q&A thread to explain and apologise, but the majority of users still hold their pitchforks.

 

Can't say I am surprised as I had a somewhat similar situation, except they couldn't find any dirt on me and I never had any warning. Still got flamed in chat. While NA community mostly sticks together in social media, EU mostly backs WG staff when in doubt. The result is that NA ends up getting the apologies and goodies.

It s a raffle aka lottery , not an event, organized by NA. 

Events should be identical.

That is infact the reason but in a different way as you might imagine:

 

EU is the 2nd largest Server from a playerbase pov while NA is the smallest.

So the people over there have to keep their community extra "entertained" to keep them playing the game, to keep the server profitable, to save their own jobs.

And giving away 10 of the oldest premium ships we have... That's nothing in the grand scheme of things.

When your pitchfork needs dusting off, you're not waving it around enough.

 

In other words: it never hurts to keep the buggers on their toes. Everything else is just weakening your own negotiation position. And yes, it pretty much is a negotiation process during which WG determines what they might get away with. So... pitchforks, tar and feathers, a ready-made bonfire with a nice, politically incorrect big [edited]phallic pole in the middle - all essential tools of the trade. Of course, for this to fully work you'll also have to apply positive reinforcement in the form of some portion of your hard-earned being thrown their way, when they do get it right.

 

That being said, I've seen better occasions than this one.

NA server needs its promotions and its (pretty good) attentive staff; its playerbase is starting to look a bit thin. Playing randoms there last night (their afternoon), I was seeing the same names crop up several times in subsequent games. Thats quite a small pool of players at prime time.
