22/10/2015 Q&A

- Storm states that Chieftain's fate needs "more considerations"
- Storm "loves WoT and wants it to become better"
- there is nothing new in 10.0 compared to the previous technical test according to Storm, just a bunch of bug fixes from the technical test phase
- Storm is not allowed to say why the "free" FV4202 will come only in January (as in, not allowed to, it's a marketing matter)
- Storm does personally actually not know what the FV4202 conditions will be, he did not participate in the decision making, but another developer confirmed it's possible they will either depend on skill, or will be in the form of a marathon
- in 10.0, FV4202 (even the premium one) will be temporarily removed from the game
- in the 10.0 test, new clan window sorting by player rating does not work yet, it will be fixed
- Czech tanks will come this year if nothing bad happens
- there are currently no plans to increase credit and XP income on higher tiers

KTTS 10.0

Hello warriors,

Wargaming has shown its newest KTTS/ASAP video and it looks like it's going to be the most popular one yet!

Or not.

Anyway, here's what's cooking - English subs available. Subtitles that is.


- new rampage and steel hunt modes
- T-22 sr. missions
- improved customization
- clan functions
- change in render range (square to circle)
- Berlin and Paris maps (domination only)
- FV4202 switch
- new HD tanks

"Free" FV4202 Incoming! Or not.

Hello warriors,

as announced on the RU server and as you very well know, the FV4202 will be in 10.0 switched for Centurion Action X and will become a tier 8 premium. The Action X owners will get the premium for free...

Hahaha. Kidding.

You're not getting anything for free. Instead, on 19.1.2016, WG will announce "series of missions" that will be available to Centurion Action X owners. After completing these missions (rumor has it they will be comparable in difficulty to the personal missions), players will receive the tier 8 premium. But perhaps there will be tokens...

The article ends with the statement that no more info will be published until 2016.

Strykers And T-72 Tanks Play In The Mud

Hello Warriors,

check out this slow motion video of Strykers And T-72 Tanks playing in the mud...

 I highly suggest to watch the video while listening to "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Baby" from Barry White. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


And by the way, what people say about being impossible to get out of the T-72 Driver's compartment when the turret is facing forward is a lie, I got out of one easily a month ago.

10.0 Test Server

Hello Warriors,

small update, its likely the 10.0 test will come tonight.

Are you ready?

US "Invades" Portugal

Hello Warriors,

Thank you to José Olivença!
I usually don't post things like this but it really brightened my morning:

U.S. Marines, PT Fuzileiros and other NATO troops staged a mock amphibious assault on Portugal's coastline on Tuesday as part of the alliance's biggest exercise in 13 years but there a tiny bit that some media is not telling and that Portuguese couldn't resist making fun of...

It all starts on a beach with the arrival from 2 hovercraft from the USS Arlington who weren't able to land at first attempt as the beach was too steep requiring them to go back out to sea and try again and once they were ashore, their robust Humvees tried to disembark and got bogged in the sand!

The best video I could find but couldn't embed it on the blog:

This is pure gold for the Portuguese humour, people been commenting on social media things like : "Nothing stops the Marines! Well, except Portuguese sand... What they think this is? Iraq? This is Portugal my friends! Its hardship!"

Of course they didn't meant it seriously and this was a good exercise to share tactics, techniques and procedures and the marines expressed that it was a pleasure to cooperate with Fuzileiros. :)
