404 Below, you’ll find legal documentation for all Wargaming.net products & services.
Creating content about video games is a wonderful but not always straightforward process. To make it easier for content creators to stay in line with intellectual property and specifically copyright policy, we have set out the following guidelines for using gameplay, screenshots, any other graphical, audiovisual and any other content from our game (“Gaming Content”).
These Guidelines will be updated from time to time.
The purpose of these Guidelines is not to introduce any kind of censorship and/or prohibit criticism of our game or our company. Even in case of possible violations we would prefer to talk first. We will be "sanctioning" channels in only the most extreme circumstances, as we have found that there are some very rare occasions where we are left with no other choice. When content goes beyond criticism into an area of slander, with demonstrably false information and personal attacks, we are forced to take action. This document serves as a basis for such action by laying out rules for what is acceptable.
We hope that the above Guidelines are set out clearly. However, please understand that we do not guarantee that we will be able to respond to individual enquiries regarding these Guidelines. If you still have questions, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions set out below.
Do the Guidelines cover video uploads or livestreams as well?

The direct sale of content you create based on our Gaming Content is only allowed with our prior explicit permission.
