I see WG is jumping on the affinity group wagon with their Captain's Club.  Another attempt to leave no monetary stone unturned.  I am not saying it is bad as a lot of entities use affinity groups leverage their brands (and make money), just interesting. 

The what now?

It seems to be about these partnership deals. My initial impression was a bunch of kids in a treehouse sitting around wearing paper hats. Was I far off the mark?

I'm seeing only one person in the ad who looks happy about his paycheck.  The offers are discounts for things to do instead of playing WoWs.

What is an affinity group in marketing?
 
 
Affinity marketing is a concept that consists of a partnership between a company (supplier) and an organization that gathers persons sharing the same interests to bring a greater consumer base to their service, product or opinion. This partnership is known as an affinity group.

'Things to do instead of playing WoWS'? Maybe WG hasn't thought this all the way through....

So, I'm in the process of reading the terms of agreement for the Captain's Club and I come across this paragraph of capitalized letters.  I always find a paragraph or more in legal documents.  I wonder why the guardians of English usage, via legal definitions and policies, do this because it doesn't clarify anything and it actually makes it harder to read since a person has to look for the periods and commas.  So, that's what I'm going to do now so I can finish reading it.

I'm in the Captain's Club!  I didn't supply any additional information or money.  The terms of agreement is just the standard legal weasel-words saying that if you are a jerk and want to go after them with your lawyer they already have their coverage.  I'm waiting to see if they will ever tell me what rewards I can expect.
