Originally posted by Lowry: Both Gaijin and Wargaming had banwaves announced at a similar time. I think it's a little too fortuitous for there not to be some sort of cooperation. Both games were made by russian developers, both have their headquarters in 'western' countries and their games have the same gameplay. Either theyre copying one another, which is a little shameful to admit or their leadership is shared.

We always have bans but just didn't announce them. Now we decided to. No conspiracy here. Just, literal, coincidence.
