Just a wrap up of all the things WG did for April Fool's.

-WoT releases funny russian tech tree, the funny part being some people actually beleived it. http://worldoftanks....tree-extension/

-Many forum goers who always ask WoT to make the Ratte rejoice for the introduction of the Ratte http://worldoftanks....11-ratte-alert/

-Each server put wheels on their tanks, just look at the top WoT banner.

-NA Server T30 with wheels: http://worldoftanks.com/

-EU Server King Tiger with wheels: http://worldoftanks.eu/

-RU Server IS-7 with wheels: http://worldoftanks.ru/

-Funny Renderings of STZ-5-NATI Katyusha: http://worldoftanks....edia/show/1521/

-Second Rendering of Panzerwerfer 42 http://worldoftanks....edia/show/1530/

-New Forum Ranks: "Pwn" title

-Supertester now Supertoaster

-New Forum Group Name of Beta Testers: Ratte Drivers

-New Forum Group Name of players: PC Users

-New Forum Group Name of Council of Armed Forces: Council of Random Battles

-Possible that WoT released all this April Fool's merriment to catch people off guard, trying not to be obvious this is a April Fool's joke to people who have their sarcastic and common sense detectors broken or off.

-Possible its just the beginning...

Happy April Fool's, *I mean, March 31st!*  :Smile_honoring:

It is rather well done for an April Fools joke, but I suppose that is what would make it a legitimate joke now....it fools you.

Still it has 2 pieces working for it.


1 - In the recent Q and A, they said a command vehicle would probably look like "this", and the photo attached was a halftrack.

2 - In a previous Q and A, rocket artillery was listed as a "possibility' not a yes or no.  


For all we know they can just be testing the water with them, seeing how the community reacts to the idea of them in game.   Only time will tell...may be a joke, may be a preview, who knows.....well the devs...

i know the ratte is an april fools joke...  simply because of the fact ppl would leave and play another game rather than face something like that..   but for pure speculation purposes..  my guess judging by its size, and the fact it uses two railway guns for it's main weapon...  realistically the ammo cost would probably be around 5k a shell..  seems horrendous but the guns may shoot 3 times over the entire match EACH... now, if you factor in whenever they give the multiple turret ability to tanks..  the ratte would have 8 other guns (6 76mm, 2 88 mm) so ammo costs would be horrific at best.  then you figure the repair costs..  having no other way to gauge that all around except by the fact that it is 10x the size of a maus..  the repair costs are around 30k for said tank, so i would guess the ratte would be around the 300k+ mark to repair (yes i know 30x10 is 300..  just leaving some breathing room there.

What I like most is the bit about the economics of the new patch. Shows gameplay footage of someone in their garage and talks about Exp and cred cost of modules..... except for the brief bit that shows a tech tree with a tier 10 TD.
