Hey Tankers,

Can you believe 2018 is almost over?  Time sure goes quicker as you get older.  I've been enjoying the perfect weather here in Texas (finally), and getting some good motorcycle rides in on the weekend.   We've been busy making plans for 2019, and there's a lot to get excited about (tanks stuff too, not just Hootie and the Blowfish getting back together).  No updates yet on most of the exciting things we talked about last month (Frontlines, MM changes etc), but steady progress is being made and we'll see both in 2019.  In the meantime, we have some other cool stuff going on:

Well-Deserved Reward + Advent Calendar

 

I'm assuming most of you have seen our loving Wes Anderson tribute and received your holiday rewards by now.  I hope those of you who received them are enjoying your T-50-2's!  I'm thrilled to finally have acquired a badge (Beta) so now I don't feel left out on the score screen.

Advent Calendar is up and running, with the cool new twist that you can buy the daily deal with Gold.  Exciting deals all month!  Some of you will also have noticed that we once again have the following year (2019) attached, please don't @ me about it - it's intentional and related to the Orthodox celebration of Christmas in January.

The New Years event will be kicking off in a few weeks, if you liked the last few years you'll like this one too! 

From the Forge

Thank you to everyone who sent in your awesome projects to be considered for our From the Forge contest!  So much cool stuff from so many talented people across several disciplines - including a Minecraft Mod!  If you make anything tank related consider entering December's contest by e-mailing your entry (anything tank related that you create) to From_The_Forge@wargaming.net for a chance to win premium tanks and other prizes.

Sheriff Event

More details to come, but the weekend of December 14th-16th we're going to round up the posse and head out into the queue to give away some gold to players who kill Sheriff accounts.  We may consider deputizing some of you if enough fine upstanding members of the community show interest. 

Winter Challenge

Still a week left to work on earning that SU-130PM!  It'll be on sale until the 13th, best of luck with your grinds.

Patch 1.3

Coming later this month - mostly a maintenance patch with changes to the Excalibur campaign to make it easier, several map retoolings, some PM 1.0 reward vehicle buffs, and a nice update to the customization system that will give you a lot more freedom with large-scale decals. 

Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season,

CM

Thanks for the update, Cabbage.  

 

I'm not upstanding, but I'd let people shoot me for Gold if it didn't hurt my ever so precious STATISTICS  :trollface:.  If I can figure out how to set up Twitch properly, I'll stream it there since folks seem to prefer that over YouTube these days:

Thanks for the update! What kind of motorcycle do you have? Austin has the Circuit of the Americas, in case you didn't know.... Newer world-class race track to vroom-vroom around on.

 

 

If you're looking to deputize someone, I'd be happy to play ball. :)

 

 

What does this mean?

I'd love to be a Sheriff but Wargaming would be bankrupt.

I’d shoot Warchild for gold!  I mean...

 

Thanks!  I'm sure most of us appreciate your updates.

Count me out on that sheriff thing. It already feels like arty is focusing me every game.

Just a little CB500F, I'm going to sell it and go bigger soon, looking at the CB 1100.  I'm definitely familiar with CotA, I've probably done a thousand laps or so of the place in iRacing.  I haven't actually been to real life version yet due to bad scheduling but I intend to go to both Moto GP and Formula 1 in 2019

The bit at the end means that the Object 260 and the T-55A are getting some small buffs.

I can get up and stand, so I'll take it that also means I'm upstanding. So if you're looking for more deputies I'll happily volunteer.

 

Looking forward to the buffs to the 260 and T-55A. Will be happy to play them and not feel I'm hurting my team as much anymore.  Hahaa

I would sign up to play a Sheriff account. Sure the focus could be frustrating, but overall it sounds like fun.

I also have the hardware/software set up to stream it.

He's talking about the buffs to the T-55A and Object 260, the Personal Mission (PM) 1.0 reward tanks.

If you've been riding a while, look into the local riding forums for used gear and a 600cc inline 4 track bike and take that thing to the CotA! Once you go track, you never go back.

Not gonna lie Cabbage... Id like to be a Sheriff for a little bit. Last time I did an event like this for WG (one of the Corgi Fleets in WoWs) it was super fun. (Both because I got to give people things and because I got to play ships I didnt own (nor would likely ever own)). If you need someone to deputize, count me in.
