Hey Tanker Veterans,

 

Did you happen to join WoT during our update 0.7.0?  Well regardless, everyone is going to get a chance to play this "Classic" update on March 29 at 00:00 PT | 02:00 CT | 03:00 ET and is available until April 3.

 

For a feeling of nostalgia and details on the event, click the button.

 

 


 

Speaking of nostalgia, we have been talking about where we were in 2011 here at the office.  Some of us were playing WoT for the first time, going to college, or working somewhere else.  So, what were you doing in 2011?

 

GLHF!

"First, you need to download the Game Center, an improved launcher allowing you to manage all Wargaming titles."

 

Nope

What maps? I didn't see anything on what maps will be available. I would love to tool around Pearl River or Northwest again or Dragons Ridge which I don't remember but everyone seems to talk about when reminiscing.

In 2011, I was working on a 3 year contract to a Latin American airline due to a short term need for experienced Captains in order to grow their 737 New Gen (-700/800/900) fleet.

 

I was playing Air Warrior online.

I have Mac and it only shows windows icon/logo for download on the link I clicked from the announcement page and also the ''install game launcher" button and the " world of. tanks classic " is not supported by Mac when I click it. is it not for Mac users?

Well, world of tanks in general isn't for mac users without the use of MacWrapper, but to my knowledge, MacWrapper wasn't a thing back then.

So the authorization error is occurring because the WOTC servers aren't live yet. I've been told that, essentially, this is a preload option, so that when the Servers go up at Midnight (Pacific Time) you can jump right in.

I've been using WGC for years, on multiple machines and networks, without a single issue.

A word to the wise: if you would like to continue using the original WOT Launcher, make sure you don't let WGC "automatically detect wargaming titles" when you install it and it asks you if it should. Otherwise it'll navigate your install of WOT to WGC and you'll need to uninstall/reinstall everything to get the old launcher back.

So instead of actually fixing anything wrong with the game...

 

You just want to show us all the broken S! from 8 years ago ???

Well, you might be able to bug the MacWrapper devs to figure it out and make it compatible, but that's a pretty short turnaround considering WOT Classic will only be up for a few days :(

Unfortunately in this case, probably out of luck.

​Erm, I don't think this is going to prevent any of the fixes that are being worked on. It's just an April Fools' gag.

Please confirm whether I understand this:
Gold, credits, and exp from this mode do not transfer to the normal game.
Anything purchased in this mode does not transfer to the normal game.
The tanks we get there-- also don't transfer?
The crews we get for those tanks-- also don't transfer?

Also, can we keep the dog in the forest "garage" after this special is done? Please?

Given that this uses WGC, I have a question:

 

When will WGC finally be mandatory? 

 

This question is due to the stupid amount of players that wont use it for illogical reasons (mostly because they dont know how to turn things off, and wont follow an image guide I made).

"Added tank horns. One horn type is available as the test version. You can buy it in the section Appearance. Press H in battle to activate the horn."
