01.06.2015 Stream (ended)

Blog work is pretty much done for today,

will be streaming WoT now for a couple hours, today I'm in a uniform!

Still getting the hang on the new pcomputer so probably just gonna do random battles or Tank Requests.

Make it so:

01.06.2015 Q&A

Not much for today: 

- There's apparently a problem now with tanks losing hitpoints when hitting turrets ripped off by ammo rack explosions;
- Developers are currently actively working on the ghost shell issue (shells flying through tanks)
- The frontal armor of the IS-2 Berlin is historical: "cast straight armor, made by Plant No.200 - 100mm thick";
- The amount of shells carried for T-54 Prototype is historical;
- Developers are considering gold ammo penetration nerfs but no specific numbers were given yet;
- Maus in the game doesn't have the track mounts on the model the real Maus has, according to Storm it's just model simplification.

And the daily, a battle Hero:


Clan Wars: Armageddon

Double checking if the powdery sugar from a mysterious British cake I ate not long ago wasn't another type of powder...*dips finger and licks* Nope, its sugar alright! I'm not tripping guys! :'D

Will make this as short as possible:

World of Tanks team just announced a new game event called  "Armageddon". Basically you gonna have to defeat an evil empire force and "pew pew" down a "Belluzzo Wheels" UFO.
Once you seize the UFO you will be granted access to a hidden area called "New Swabia" where the Imperial forces are preparing their relocation to the new Global Map (Spaceports and supply reactors at your disposal to blow up!).

If you succeed and after the Michael Bay action and explosions (damn, glad J.J. Abrams was only a writer in the Armageddon movie) you will be earning... *Sound Effect* the IS-5 (Object 730) painted with a special unique camouflage, lets hope its not like the WGL one on the AMX 13 57!

They were also kind enough to give the chance to all the participants to purchase 6500 IS-5 (Object 730).

If you are interested everything will be explained in more detail here:

Challenger 2 versus Toyota

Thank you Marco G. !

Earlier today in Germany, at 9 am, a female driver tried to turn left onto the road beside a base and she didn't notice the convoy of tanks that were driving on the road, the driver of the first tank was unable to break in time and drove over the hood, nobody was injured.

This was the result:

Only have one question: HOW CAN SOMEONE NOT SEE A TANK CONVOY???

Probably the Bimbo type that drives with a phone on the wheel hand and applying lipstick while looking at the mirror with the other...
People like this seriously awake the Klingon in me, for example, the other day while getting ready to go out and do fun stuff got placed a timer while applying makeup, for science, (lipstick, eye liner, blush... all that crap) and I was ready in exactly 1min 30 sec! There is absolute no excuse someone else cant do the same before starting up a car, seems like the pure example of a member of our specie that doesn't give a frak about others and self safety!

Boy... this one sure rustled my jimmies... Computer! Tea! Earl Grey! Hot!


Early Storm QA

- According to Storm, this is a part of matchmaker functioning normally;
- There are no plans to remove Malinovka from hightier battles;
- There are no plans to remove Prokhorovka from hightier battles either (or at all);
- T-34-85 "Rudy"'s S-53 gun has improved penetration because "it has different shells";
- Rudy's gun is also more accurate than regular T-34/85's gun because "the tank is manned by a mega-crew and a dog";
- T-34-85M doesn't have the improved Rudy's shells because "back then we did not consider it as necessary";
- Storm cannot comment on "World of Tanks 2.0";
- WoT development will not end with patch 1.0;
- There's a bug in 9.8 where some completed personal missions do not count. It will be fixed.
- Storm states that the alleged issue with artillery aim circle "twitching" in 9.8 is not confirmed and must be investigated further;
- There were no changes to accuracy in 9.8;
- According to Storm Wargaming is not afraid to chat ban toxic players even though this might result in monetary losses: "We deemed it so that there will be more profit in that."
- Post-battle tank statistics are broken, they now sort tanks based on their names and not tiers.

Unknown tanks on WG FB

Hello warriors,

following two pictures apparently appeared on Wargaming FB before being taken down immediately. They both represent unfinished models, quite strange ones though.

This looks like the twin turret Vickers or 7TP dw. (makes little sense since this version was only armed with machineguns)

This looks like an IS-4 hull with some different turret (looks like T-10)? Quite strange. Storm in any case states he does not know what this is.

Tank Fest Trailer

Afternoon warriors,

the Bovington Tank Museum youtube page just uploaded a trailer for upcoming Tank Fest event, check it out:

Just to let you know, I will be at Tank Fest on Saturday, 27 of June, so if you are around and happen to spot a tiny excited brunette speeding all over the tanks, that's me. Feel free to approach with caution. :)

Kanonenjagdpanzer renders

 Afternoon lovely warriors,

nearly a month ago posted the images of the Kanonenjagdpanzer in-garage renders, here is a couple extra from "World of Tanks Polska" that are worth a look too:

Tank Dating Simulator

I don't even know how to start...

There is an "Anime tank girl dating simulator" on Steam Kickstarter, this is the description:

" Erwin Lemmor just got transferred to a prestigious military academy to study Armored Warfare. But when he arrives, Erwin realizes it's not Tank School, but "Tank School" for World War II Main Battle Tanks. Who happen to look just like Japanese School Girls...!
(...) Will he win the heart of the tank-girls, or end up as cannon fodder? Only you can decide in, "Panzermadels: Tank Dating Simulator".   "

This would have made a perfect porn movie plot... But hey! Still better a better love story than Twilight right?

The video is even better:

Already can imagine a KV-5 as an Russian cougar with fake uneven anime boobs...
