I was running solo last night and the map was black goldville. I looked at our roster and see a Kreig platoon and think to myself great I got at least two I can count on to be productive. The the platoon was a obj 140 and a e5.  Someone says caves and we get like 5 affirimatives.  Everyone starts heading caves and then I notice the toon is going middle.  I think to myself they must know what they are doing and try to get into position to support. Before I can get to the top in my M48 they Yolo rush a IS-4,E100,T-62 and T-54. They literally sat still, in the open just trading shots. They died within a matter of seconds. I thought it was strange, but we all have had those games we regret and don't perform up to standards. They both started blaming everyone for not supporting and calling us noobs as we died. I decided to check their stats and must to my amazement they were both 46% players. wth, how, in Kreig?   I checked the clan profile and realized the spelling is different. Krieg vs Kreig.

Thanks for the heads up! I never even thought to look for that! Sucks you fell for their clan-ruse though.

So do you honestly believe they did it just to try and be an impostor clan?

 

I'm sort of doubting it.  I'm betting they just haven't been to the forums, and a 12 year old that can't spell started up the clan, and others flocked into it.  I'm also betting there are a hand full of some sort of KRIEG or KREIG or KRE1G or KR1EG or whatever clans out there just from the name of the game being "Blitz."

 

To be fair, I've also fallen for that.  A T-34-85 on lost temple.  I never noticed the speelinzg being wrong because I'm awesome like that.  He went hills instead of temple, and I figured he was flanking or going for TDs or something, but I headed out with him in my T-44 because I figured I might learn a thing or two.

 

He popped up on top of a hill and got slaughtered.  Then typed in chat "That didn't work well."

 

I lol'd.

 

After the fight I checked him, just because I was curious, and yup... Not the unicum I expected nor the clan I thought.

 

Oh well.  moved on.

LOL. I bumped into this situation once where there were a pair of platoon namely GR1M and KRIEG. At the beginning of the match, I text o7, good we have u, unicum, we win this, bla2. To make it worst, I posted it in Global chat (where reds also can see it). Well, we lost the match horribally with the fact that I found those platoon were 40er tankers

Why do people think when they have KRIEG on thee team it is an automatic win. I had a KRIEG player on my team once he was top tier and he only did 400 damage the whole game but when I see lastlife92 on my team I know we will have a fairly good chance.

I'm just glad to have someone on my team I can depend on to do their job. 

Not always the case though, once I had AX70, and lastlife92 on my team, and we did 9700 damage combined(I did the second most) and we still lost. I was pretty ticked lol.

I would love for Wargaming to succeed, and I will push for success until I'm gone or Blitz is.

What are you talking about? I would rather have a bunch of people that don't know what they are doing than people that actually know how to play the game. Only kidding and 9700 damage combined on a loss sucks but my most damaging game I lost and I was pretty happy because it was a close game but when we are losing like 6-0 that's when my rage kicks in

Yeah I don't think it's really fair to call these "imposter" clans.  Yes, the forum "Krieg" clan was able to pre-register their name & tag before 2.0 was released.  But all of the other versions of that name used since then probably have NO idea who the forum clan guys are.  They see a game called "Blitz" made with WW2 tanks, and the first thing that comes to mind is the term "Blitzkrieg", coined during that time period.

Possibly but I have actually had people say in the global chat in game. "Oh great we have a KRIEG, they suck" mistaking the other clan for the "real" one. More often then not though it's "oh yay we got a KRIEG".

Understood that there is confusion among the general populace.  But to call these other clans "imposters" implies there was some sort of malicious intent in their name choice.

Maybe Krieg needs to call themselves "The Original Krieg".

You are right cheez.  It was a poor choice of words on my part.  I don't think they did it with any malicious intent.  Maybe I should have labeled the topic "similar clan names". All I was trying to do was give the community a heads up.  I use as much information as possible to help plan each battle and my lack of attention to detail failed me here.

That would work.  They could even abbreviate it, "The OK Clan".  Think about how that would play out in game chat.

 

"That guy...is he Krieg?  I hope he's good"

'Yeah, he's OK'

That would be awesome. Yeah guys I'm OK.

 

And btw while this thread is here why not make a list of all the clans that have other clans named similarly after them?
