You don’t have to be crazy about tanks to work at Wargaming.net — but it certainly helps. (A cool Eastern European accent wouldn’t go astray either.)
This week, we attended the official Australasian launch of World Of Tanks Blitz in Taipei (look out for a hands-on coming soon-ish). One of the things that really stood out at the event was the terrifying enthusiasm exhibited by the developers for real-world tank history. They’ll literally keep talking about this stuff for hours, or until the listener finds a viable escape route.
It was a bit like that scene in The Virgin Suicides where the dad traps some boys in an attic for a crash-course in World War 2 warfare. Luckily, we happen to love learning about tank battles. Tanks are awesome.
Check out the above video for a taste of tank history, Wargaming.net style.
