World Of Tanks Getting Gloriously Detailed Destructibility

Destructo-porn ahoy! World of Tanks continues to be massively (almost bewilderingly) popular, but there's no two ways about it: its underlying systems are getting a little creaky. Thus, Wargaming is getting ready to oil up the free-to-play phenom's crunchiest gears by introducing large-scale destructibility. When shells hit buildings, they will crumble literally brick-by-brick. Unless they are not made of bricks, in which case they will…

Riot Changes Mind On Pro LoL Streams, But Issues Persist

The witch is dead, League of Legends pros can once again stream whatever they want, and eSports is saved! OK, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, but I really didn't like the potential implications of Riot's decision to contractually forbid its pros from streaming Dota 2, Hearthstone, World of Tanks, and tens of other extremely popular games. Fortunately, after copious uproarious outcry, Riot decided to…

Free Shells: Wargaming.net Scrap Pay To Win

Wargaming.net believe that war should take place on a level playing field. Money may make the world go round but it won't buy you any extra-powerful rounds for your weaponry, whether those weapons be attached to tanks, planes or automobiles ships. In an interview with Gamasutra, Andrei Yarantsau, VP of publishing at the Belarusian behemoth, stated that the World of Tanks and other forthcoming titles,…

World Of Thanks: Wargaming Buys Gas Powered Games

The strange, sad story of Chris Taylor's Gas Powered Games in 2013 has taken another unexpected twist - and now we know what the hinted-at future for the deeply troubled Supreme Commander developer is. Increasingly omnipresent Belarus developer/publisher Wargaming.net, best know for the remarkably successful World of Tanks, has stepped in to buy up what's left of the Dungeon Siege studio.

World Of Tanks Chinese Tanks Now Tanks… Er, Live

I can't be the only one who appreciates the ever-narrowing gap between official World of Tanks footage and nature documentaries, can I? There's a certain grace to their low-speed loping, and recent products of Wargaming's virtual camerawork have captured that in a way that just begs for overly embellished narration. But I digress. New tanks! After originally being announced for update 8.2, Chinese tanks are…

World Of Tanks Adding Chinese Pottery. Kidding: Tanks

Well, that was quick. World of Tanks' Britain-themed 8.1 update - unfortunately not titled "Sir, You Are Being Hunted (By Tanks)" - came out just a hair over a week ago, and now Wargaming's already rallying the troops for update 8.2. This time around, the focus is mainly on a new Chinese tank tree, which actually houses creaking death machines you can buy in succession,…

The British Are Coming! World Of Tanks Stiffens Upper Lip

I was thinking, seeing that World Of Tanks has unveiled its 8.1 update with accompanying video, that this isn't a Halloweeny thing. What are they doing releasing it today? And then it occurred to me: tanks are actually scary. Ghosts and monsters may be the more traditional source of chills, but their overall efficacy at being frightening is somewhat limited by their not existing. Tanks…

Star Citizen’s Big Influences: Demon’s Souls, Real Life

Star Citizen – the newest and spacest thing from mighty commander of all wings, Chris Roberts – sounds impossibly good. And I do mean that, but with more emphasis on the “impossible” part than I'd like. No doubt, Roberts is completely brilliant, but he's proposing a project of utterly mad ambition. Naturally, it's made me a bit skeptical. That said, an hour-long chat during GDC…

Wuh Oh: PlaySpan Got Hacked, World Of Tanks Affected

You're familiar with the routine by now. If you've got a World Of Tanks account and bought anything, to be sure change your password, and any passwords associated with it. And if you're still not using unique passwords per account, go change all the others too. PlaySpan, the software World Of Tanks uses for financial transactions in WoT and a thousand other games, has been…

There Were Tanks At Tankfest: A Report

I don’t even like tanks that much. I have honestly no idea what I’m doing here. There are tanks everywhere. Tanks in the lobby, tanks on the lawn, tanks in the gift shop. I walk around hoping to find a Russian tank which inside houses different, smaller tanks, so that I can act bewildered and amused even though I previously suspected its existence. But it…

World Of Tanks: Free Tanks And Stuff

Polite notice: THE CODES WORK FOR NEW EUROPEAN AND NORTH AMERICAN REGISTRATIONS ONLY. If you are already a WoT player they won't be much use to you. Unless you want to get a chum involved or whatever. Anyway! If our interview with the producer from World Of Warplanes got your pseudo-World War II PvP glands engorged, then you might want to try their original game,…

Aces Higher: World Of Warplanes Explained

A giant V-formation of free-to-play air combat is on the horizon: World Of Warplanes from the makers of World Of Tanks. To find out a bit more of what to expect from a persistent dogfighting game, I had a chat with Wargaming.net's Anton Sitnikov, and he explained exactly whether a Spitfire could take a jet-propelled plane in a fight.

Anti-Tank: World of Warplanes

First there were tanks, and now there are warplanes. What next: World Of Armoured Personnel Carriers? World Of Anti-Tank Suicide Dogs? The here and now, though, is World of Warplanes: the new game from Wargaming.Net, creators of the august WW2 MMO World of Tanks. RATATATATATATATATATATATATetc

World Of Tanks Finally Launches April 12th

After an open beta lasting just five hundred years, popular armoured warfare game World Of Tanks now has a release date in North America and the EU. It's April 12th! Oh but I said that already. What I didn't say was that you can still play on the open beta, here for North America and here for Europe, untul that time. As I understand it,…
