Panzer 58 Update

Hello Warriors,

I have a small update to give you, the Panzer 58 only will appear on EU and NA.
Our Russian comrades who are accustomed to be spoiled have been complaining about it on their social pages. Although I'm from the opinion that exception from China every server should receive the same vehicles, that's not the reality of things and is about damn time that EU and NA get to receive some special treatment!

Edit: Last time Wargaming spoke about this vehicle its was marathon reward, check what I posted earlier on the blog: http://goo.gl/YM74hZ.
Ectar (a community manager for EU/EN) has said today that there wont be a marathon mission for the end of the year, I believe because is too close to the Action X marathon, check Q&A: http://goo.gl/UMx9sz

Second Edit: for those on the SEA server complaining in the comment section, last time I heard you will be the only ones getting the Patton KR, this information came from one of the WG RU official pages. (And please go to your settings and enable people to answer to your comments, thank you.)

What time is it?

Thanks to Kevin L. for spotting this.

Hello Warriors,

confirmed, Wargaming has finally invented time travel at their NA department in the Serb Moon base!

Just a goof.. :)

New Year's Garage

Hello Warriors,

this is the winter garage for the new year:

Looks nice but the perfectionist in me who has experience in creating maps for modded server games cant stop noticing the little details...I would suggest to whoever created this map for next time to drop the automatic tool and bring a more manual approach to the batch of trees, they look too uniform! <3

And by the way, LOVE that Karl made of ice! Wargaming you tease!

9.13 Patch Date

Hello Warriors,

I should have explained it better in the previous post. When I typed that the 9.13 was coming today I meant it for the RU server, we always get the patches later than them, usually just a few days but can go as long as weeks if WGL decides to cause a bigger delay.

There is now official information that 9.13 will be coming to EU on 16 of December and shouldn't be different for NA.

Also Wargaming provided us with some screenshots of the upcoming Czechoslovakian map, Pilsen:
