Hello Pilots! 

 

Spoiler

 

It is with some sorrow that I will be moving my main working focus to World of Tanks. Though I have loved every moment of my time on World of Warplanes I have accepted the challenge to work on the ground instead of in the skies! 

 

First I would like to highlight and fight the rumor or speculation. World of Warplanes is not "dying", it will keep its engines going for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, there will be WG staff presence on the forums and discord as well as other channels. You will have seen activity from those people already, please greet them warmly! The timing of my departure is nothing but coincidental with recent news in the WG universe, so please do not fear about the future of the game or your accounts. If you're still worried, please, feel free to reach out to a member of staff who will be able to clarify things for you.  

 

That being said, I will still be active in the community in my free time as well as the discord. But my working hours will be focused elsewhere, so my response times and presence around the hangars and tea sheds will decrease somewhat. It was a pleasure to have worked with and interacted with many of you, I wish you luck and good fortune in your games and life! 

 

God Speed and Good hunting! :honoring:

See you in WoT eekeeboo, that's where my main focus went back to after the 'specialist' system was introduced to WoWP's.

Like you, I'll still play WoWP's now and again, but I won't take it seriously.

Thanks for all your efforts in WoWP's, they were really appreciated and good luck in your new endeavours.:honoring:

I won't say goodbye as I'm sure we'll meet again.:)

 

ROLL OUT!...............:trollface:

Too bad to see you leave, man. With you I had a feeling our good ideas were sent upstairs and you communicated well with us and them.

 

Keep up the good work, we'll miss you.

I'm sad to see you leaving but I'm also sad to see that there is no replacement. This shows how much our feedback and opinion is appreciated.

First of all, Congratulations on your new job, Eekee. WoT will get a really good guy on their team and you will be missed.

 

Second... This is really sad for the game and the community. World of Warplanes really needs a good community manager that interacts, helps, communicate and engage new and old player. I might be wrong but I don't think there are any current members of the WoWps community that can carry that task.

I hope that you guys will find a good "replacement", because the game really needs someone that is as eager to develop the game and create events as the player base is asking for.

 

Time will tell, and again, good luck with your new task.

Do not worry Blindfold and Neverm1nd are around and there will be someone to help you with my slacking! :izmena:

 

Please do not worry about the game and its future, this was my decision for tanks not forced due to closing or because of down-sizing etc. WoWP will live on!

Dear Eekeeboo, thanks a lot for your really good job you made here as Community Manager in the WOWP Forum.

 

Good luck with your new WOT Job!

You will be missed around here for sure!

You did a great job, i'm curious to see who WG is sending as a replacement :child:

Will there be a new "eekeeboo"? 

As for WoT, i hope you'll feel you made a good call on that, one way to find out. Have fun and we'll see you around!

:honoring:

Warplanes’ loss is Tanks’ gain, but I’m afraid all this really means is that the Warplanes team is determined not to listen to any community other than the Russian one.  Can you confirm that, basically, the entire management of WoWP is being moved to Russia, eekeeboo, as is rumoured?

 

If so, I think we can expect our views on the game, particularly our frustrations with it, to be met with stony silence from hereon in.  We won’t even have Eek as intermediary telling the WoWP team things clearly it doesn’t want to hear.  It prefers what I understand is a quite pliant Russian player base, insofar as it appears Russian players are used to the idea that it’s a privilege to play the game and they shouldn’t complain about it nor expect to be given useful information about it and where it’s heading.


This is a black day for World Of Warplanes, I believe.

Congratulations on your new path!, I am playing WoT too from start, so maybe we could meet there too, but you will be a pilot forever, like the ones that now sail in World of Warships, or roll in World of Tanks ^_^  who play WoWp and enjoy it in any momento will be a pilot forever.

 

I wish you the Best of luck!!

Thank-you everyone. I won't be abandoning you, I promise! 

 

For the feedback, I can promise you that my replacement and counterparts will do a great job with you and for you. Of course, there was an element of quiet and silence previously because of the sheer noise I make wherever I go. Not that void is there, I'm sure might pink camo promise bearer that is blindfold and nevermind, will be here to help you all.

I think is a good move for your career, you won't have to defend all day the WoWp paranoia. Your presence here was critical to establish a (previously non existent) communication between WG and players.

Hope the new guys to continue and improve what you started here. I'm sure we'll see you in battles and forum (as player) soon. And someday this joke evolves to a good game.  All the best to you! :honoring:

Good luck also from a rather silent reader that is me. Community stuff at WoT as well? If you show as much commitment there the way you did here, it will be a big win for WoT. But a big loss for the WoWP community, no doubt.

 

Well, see you on the battlefield then maybe next year. I'm gonna keep on sticking around this game for a while, as I've been a little overstrained by the tank players' general attitude. I hope you won't lose your faith in humanity over there :P
