09/12/2015 Stream

Hello Warriors,

Its time a scheduled livestream! I'm going to play Armored Warfare as I am in the mood to take my Challengers for a spin! Also have all tier 9s unlocked so I'm able to show the vehicles to you thanks to Obsidian! <3

Great.. thank you very much hair.

Steady as carry goes:


Interview with one of the Quality Assurance developers. Quality Assurance department makes sure the game goes out without massive bugs. Here's what he said:

- he works on WoT for 3 years
- according to QA, Blitz, Xbox and PS4 work fine, the Japanese WG office is nice and Lesta (WoWs) is marching fowards but the Kiev office (Persha) is problematic. The only thing he complains about is the shitloads of people
- the problem with Wargaming staff is that they hired a whole bunch of non useful people (HR) who go around offices and disturb the workers, causing chaos in organization
- QA cannot initiate any changes to the game, all they do is check for bugs (although in one case QA caused one vehicle to be rejected)
- one of the developers in an interview stated that QA department is bad, QA guys were pretty offended because they play a lot. They blame chaos in upper management (requesting stupid things) for the issues ion the game.
- another problem of WoT are the players themselves and their whining. This is a speciality of Russian players with really poor computers, EU and NA players don't generally whine about performance. EU and NA feedback is actually pretty good and in many cases it's more useful than the RU one, the non RU players are simply more competent
- one of the biggest WoT problems is the community, which is the fault of the community itself - toxicity
- some of the RU (but also EU and NA) volunteers are known to do it only to collect unique tanks the volunteers get (RG: T-44-122 for example) and then sell their accounts on the internet. This along with the bonus code scams is actually not appearing on NA server where such things are taken negatively
- 200-250 thousand players left WoT to play WoWs
- there will be crossplatforming on Xbox and PS4 tanks, it's being tested for now

Armored Warfare: Maintenance

Hello Warriors,

On 10th of December 2015, starting from 08:00 AM CET (EU server) and 01:00 AM PST (NA server) Armored Warfare will be going under maintenance for 5 hours (until 13:00 CET - 06:00 AM PST approximately) to implement the 0.11.1654 update.

This is what you can expect:

  • Update Increased the health of external modules (cannons, tracks, fuel tanks) to make them more durable, this mitigates the "artillery destroys all modules" problem
  • Fixed the issue where sometimes the client would crash when entering battle
  • Fixed some of the authentization issues preventing players from entering the game
  • Fixed the driver skill "Smooth Ride"
  • Fixed the performance issues in the Red Opossum mission
  • Fixed the issue with the M109A6 Paladin shell display

Video Taken Down for Child Abuse

Hello Warriors,

Wargaming had to put down one of its commercials from Youtube after it generated a massive storm over the Russian community, people started complaining that it featured child abuse:

*Edit: Its possible that this will be taken to court.*

Link to video here

Its clear the intention of the video was just a guy wanting to play a videogame in peace (*) but the whole atmosphere of the commercial and the way he got the kid quiet definitely wasn't the correct way! And truth to be told... his face creeps me out a bit...

Instead of locking the kid the guy could have added him to the fun, they could have platooned together. Its not that hard to teach a kid to play artillery to support you, seriously! I've failed to find the video but I've posted it on the blog before, one of my frequent livestream viewers, Soslo posted a youtube video teaching his very young kid on how to play arty and his son proceeded to one shot kill a unlucky random pleb.

(*)Personal experience...I'm only a "cat mother" but I've grown up with 2 hyperactive siblings, did plenty of babysitting and even have a athletics coaching diploma specialized in the age of 6 to 10 and its simple, you CANT take eyes away from kids not even for 5min, and if they become quiet while you are looking away doing whatever (preparing meal/activity or cleaning) it means they are doing something bad!

Oh Wargaming... you so silly. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
