Note the grammar and the lack of any knowledge about the game (Story-holic!).

 

Blatant hiring of positive-review spam crew off-shore.

 

This was screenshot from the Microsoft store review section. There are more suspect positive reviews like this buried here and there among all the negative reviews in reaction to 3.8.

I think this person contacted me about some cash that needed to be relocated from Somalia, they just needed my bank account and I'd be rich...

The story is about how a government slowly turns into a power-hungry regime, no longer attentive to the needs of the people but instead robbing and pillaging from them, similar to how WG screwed over everyone with this update.

Fake reviews are prohibited by apple, I doubt a big company like Wargaming will risks to do so.

You'd be surprised what companies do. They've already proven that they have zero morals, so why stop now?

Abd yet many still try it. While I'm not sure if WG paid for that review, I would not be the least bit surprised to find out they did.

This was on the Microsoft Store where things are more wild-west.

 

Microsoft actively tries to highlight positive reviews to help generate sales for developers so that they can get their cut.

 

Also, rich people play by different rules. I highly doubt it's any different in the Apple world.

Kindly? Probably from India :D

 

I've worked with IT pros from India many times, so know their "English language." Phrases such as "Please kindly do the necessary." lol

Wow.  The amount of 1 stars on the Play Store is staggering.  They'll either do something quite substantial to counter this tsunami of angst they've created or they'll be done.  Pretty tricky to ammo rack yourself, but WG pulled it off masterfully.

Not too surprised actually. I think they pay people to defend them on this forum. Ever notice the same few people who defend WG no matter what they do?
