Soon, Wargaming will have a new policy in place with the goal of cracking down on toxic behavior in its games. The policy includes both rewards for positive players and new, lasting, punishment for toxic players.
Effective Aug. 8, the new policy rewards players with no reported bad behavior in chat, in games, and on the forums every 90 days, giving them a small reward, such as Premium consumables or other in-game items. They'll also be entered into a drawing for 90 days of Premium time, which will be awarded to 50 well-behaved players. One player will also win a yearly drawing for $250 worth of goodies.
On the flip side, misbehaving players will first receive a warning, and then a series of "strikes" against their account. Some severe infractions may warrant multiple strikes. With each strike comes additional restrictions, culminating with a complete ban after five strikes. Strikes will be permanent and will no longer "roll off" an account after a certain period of time has passed. Except for permanent bans, all violations will be reset on Aug. 8, letting everyone start off in the new system with a clean slate.
You can read the complete new policy on the Wargaming site.
