20.05.2015 Q&A

It's possible that today, third round of 9.8 test will start. Patch 9.8 will come in May "if everything goes well". It's not certain that the Domination mode will come in 9.8, maybe it will come a bit later.

From an interview with Andrey Yarantsev, WG vice president:

- in April, Wargaming entered a partnership with other Belarusian game developer, Melesta Games (casual and mobile game developer, its best known game is Farm Frenzy with 300 million installations). Basically it means that WG will be the producer and Melesta a developer
- the fastest growing segment of the game market are mobile games, WG is putting a lot of attention there, it's one of the strategic goals of WG
- total revenue of mobile applications in 2014 exceeded 25 billion USD
- the cooperation talks were pretty short, they started in December 2014
- the goal of this cooperation is to make popular mobile games
- Wargaming is aware that the World of Tanks success will likely not be repeated but their goal is to make a game that will get close to that success. World of Warships is looking good so far.

MTLS-1G14 is coming to Xbox

Hello warriors,

remember the MTLS-1G14, the twin gun devil that appeared years ago in World of Tanks but was never released? Well, it's coming now... but only for Xbox. It will be apparently sold there at the end of the month. Xbox version generally gets a lot of cool features.

For those who don't remember: this is one of the three super-rare tanks (well, it was back then) that was made roughly 3 years ago (the others were BT-SV and Panzer II Ausf.J). The others became the bonus tanks for German and Russian gift bundles (only to be actually sold not so long ago) but the MTLS was never released due to the fact it was never properly balanced, the two guns were either OP or useless (very low penetration, even with gold ammunition).

Wargaming looking for "volunteers"

Hello warriors,

Wargaming RU started an interesting site. They are looking for a couple of volunteers to help with the game. This program was active for a while already (there are "community helpers" on RU forums) but they did not have a separate site before. You can read the announcement here.

By the WG definition, a volunteer is not an employee (unpaid) who however does perform tasks assigned to him by Wargaming. These tasks include:

- moderation of chat
- moderation of forums
- helping players solving their issues (usually this involves anwering easy or obvious questions and pointing players to support)

Volunteers on RU forums do not receive money but they do occasionally get gifts such as exclusive vehicles. Please note that this is unlikely to ever appear on EU server due to the European labor laws that are very strict on any unpaid work.
