Think CA is playing the usual censorship thing here or it's just a horrible mistake?

I am aware of cases criticizing the game being removed from Reddit.
Now they seem to don't wish to redo the model of Tzeentch so they try to silence the unhappy crowd.

    redditors in general, and jannies especially love to shill for corpos and poiticans. so CA probably dosent even know this post exists, but some white knight still "proects" poor indie company

    CA has already acknowledged that they would be looking into it.

    The moderators on Reddit take down posts all the time, and this no evidence of a grand conspiracy to silence criticism.

    Particularly, since, there is still loads of criticism available from CA affiliated youtubers, the official forums, and r/totalwar.

    If that were the case, the gazillion posts talking about the Tzeentch Warriors here on the forums would have been erased a long time ago.

    Considering that the premise of the post is either a joke or an attempt at trolling, it being blocked is not strange.

    You can criticize CA as long as you remain respectful of others opinions I myself have been critical of things CA has done and expressed where I thought they went wrong and haven't received any warnings.

    The mods let it slip that they are in personal communication with the CA employees during the Chinese Nude 3K fan-art debacle.

    They are too close.

    I think I missed the point where shown reddit post indicates disrespect to CA.

    A select few on this forum sees conspiracy or other malintent in everything. It's hard to take any of it seriously anymore.

    As a lot of people in the actual reddit thread guess, it was possibly just the automod removing something with a ton of reports. Because people like to report things they don't agree with sometimes to try and get it removed.

    Lol, I never thought people would report a thing they disagree with, I assumed downvoting the post or blacklisting vanilla_gorilla would be enough.

    I got temporarily banned on Twitter for hate speech and harassment, because I wrote out a paragraph about why I ****ing hate Mudflap from Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen.

    I wish I could but I had to delete it or I wouldn't get unbanned. Their was a lot of cursing though. Moral of the story, Twitter is cringe. xD

    That implies you don't hate the rest of Transformers 2 enough if you can pick an individual character through the red haze of rage and hate.

    Your ban was justified on those grounds.

    I know for a fact that this is not the official chaos warrior of nurgle!
    This is fake because it got updated with actual symbols of nurgle and demon faces and not just painted green.

    I highly doubt this was removed because CA complained. If they were that sensitive to criticism, they'd have taken this forum down years back.

    But I don't blame anyone for raising the possibility. Open secret certain Reddit mods are on the take, removing and promoting content for their personal benefit.

    The TW reddit page is particularly trash and the people running it are known to bend over and censor people that are critical of CA due to a not so subtle ultimatum by a CA staff that threatened to stop having official CA presence on there if they allowed to post what they don't like. It was around the 8P DLC release and when they purged a lot of the 3K mod workshop due to copyright laws or so they claim.
    Just look at the official mod response, he's oozing passive aggressiveness.

    CA rarely reads this forum, aside from people like CA_Duck who continues to monitor the utter dumpster fire that is the balance forums. I very much doubt they even read their bug report forums after my experience with 3K.

    Jesus Christ he should be kicked out of this modding role right after these words. What a piece of an ****.

    Can't we use reddit rules to get rid of him like people get rid of reddit posts? By reporting his page for agression hate speach or something? Case here he is cleanly a level of crap we had with some marketing degree guy.

    I always viewed the balance and bug forums as purely there for ornamental purposes.

    It's not really against Reddit's rules to be a patronising arse. As long as it's to the right people.

    Besides which, if I hold in contempt people who use "hate speech" as a catch-all to silence people they don't like, I can't in good conscience do it, suggest it, or support it myself.

    I've got few posts there removed there as well for unknown arbitrary reasons. Place is a mess.

    Must be super offensive to someone.
