Does anyone with any ability in the English language actually take a look at this stuff before you publish it for all the world to see?

0-perk 6th sense means he has 100% primary skill as commander as does all crew and commander has 6th sense already but it doesnt count as his first skill ... this is very clear if you have played the game any length of time and know that specialty crew such as sisters in arm have BIA skill as a 0-perk skill

 

as for the misspelling of sense ... wargaming has don much worse specially in missions ...

if you ever been stuck on a heavy tank mission to kill 2 enemy heavy tanks and after 6 months clueless after how you never get it passed and sent in hundreds of replays and tickets  showing you killed 2 heavy tanks in battle only to finish mission one day by accident when you were tired and wanted to go to bed and did a suicide run and rammed 2 arty to death and finished the mission ?

 

the people that translate this stuff really dont know much english ..period if having trouble with a mission google the mission in russian and copy and paste mission into google translator .. no kidding its what i do and there are tons of mistakes

There are no "Sisterhood of Steel" now.  It is all BIA.  Just to clarify the translational error,  they wrote "six sense" instead of being "Sixth or 6th Sense".  I know, you would think the ding dongs at the NA server level would correct these errors, sad really.

I enjoyed the time the wot homepage banner proudly displayed the sale of the "T-34-85m Rudy".

It's got great armor, good dpm AND a dog? Heckin op.

I know, but allegedly we have folks in North America that work for WG.

 

And they put six sence when it should be "sixth sense"

 

Anyway, the English guy in me just cringes every time they put something up on the web...

 

If the folks that worked for me put out content like that continuously, they would not be working for me long.

Cut them some slack.  Reading and typing are hard!

 

After all the Trumplodytes in the White House couldn't even spell Admiral Ronny Jackson's name correctly in their forgery yesterday.
