Hey Tankers,


As you may have noticed I have the new team putting up threads in the Staff Corner to introduce themselves, slide on down there to say hello.  We are now officially moved into the new office, and excited to be settled in our new home (I have even gotten to play some World of Tanks the last few days!)  With that in mind, I'd like to answer a few commonly asked questions now that we are more equipped to answer some of them.

When is the Progetto 46 coming out on the NA server?
This will be detailed later this week, keep an eye out.

Are Tournaments ever coming back?
I never wanted to stop doing Tournaments, but circumstances beyond my control forced our hand.  I am now happy to state that we are working on the return of tournaments and will have more details soon™.  Expect some changes to structure and prizing, and we will start slow to give our team time to learn how to properly manage the system.

EU TRANSFERS!?!?!?
I feel your pain and apologize for our silence on this issue.  Unfortunately the reason for it is that we have had no progress to share.  We know there is still demand, especially from those of you in places who have been seriously affected by the move to Central Server, and now that the chaos of moving is (mostly) past we will renew our push to have a transfer window opened.  

 

Tank Rewards?

Still on hiatus, we have to be sure we can fill the gap caused by the departure of the lovely Hypnotik (who built Tank Rewards with his bare hands 15 miles uphill both ways in the snow)

That's all for now, I hope all of you are enjoying 1.0.

See you on the Battlefield!

I am hesitant to ask a question because the last time I did it did not go well.  :facepalm:

If I had 100 gold for every time I heard "Tournament Info Soon" I wouldn't need tournaments . . .

 

Thanks for keeping us updated, though. Glad to see the move is going smoothly. Cant wait for Soon to finally be Now!

I used to average at least 50 battles per day (I'm retired), but since WG found it too hard to run team combat tournaments in this team combat game, I've played an average of 5 games per week. And of course, I haven't spent a dollar on the game either (I would have bought at least the 13-57 if WG NA hadn't looked like it was dying).

 

Now WG NA says, "we are working on the return of tournaments and will have more details soon™." WG routinely breaks the promises it makes to its customers, and this statement is far, far less than a promise,so I ain't holding my breath. I am just a little bit hopeful though.

Thank you for answering some of the most common questions we all have been asking for. I think we are all glad that someone up there is listening and hopefully doing something to address our concerns.

Same here Hans. Since I dropped from 50 a day to a couple here and there, I've found my retirement to actually be fun. I don't think I'll ever get back to addiction levels again, which will be good for my blood pressure at least.

Woohoo!!

 

Time to dust off the tournament rust and get a team ready for when they come back *evil grin*

Sadly, Mugsy is also choosing to move on.  He is a good friend and I will miss him.

Meathead is still hosting the WoT weeklies and getting some streaming regularly, both on our Twitch/Facebook page and his Twitch Channel.

Not my call, but I am keenly aware of this issue and we submit regular reports on popular sentiment.  Our dev team keeps a close eye on an incredible variety of statistical metrics related to balance and player activity.  There will be more balance patches.

I understand where you are coming from. We aim to improve that opinion.

Great news! I cannot wait to start doing tournaments again! the 1v1 showdown and the 3v3 tourneys were great for The twitch stream, and everyone loved getting into the meta of tanks, maps, etc. at all the different tiers. 

 

Cheers and godspeed!

Hopefully we'll be comparable to the other servers again after this. Right now we're a laughing stock.
