Tank Debut Quiz: Results

Let's start with the correct answers:

1. Sir Ernest Swinton (yeah, he is the grandfather of the famous actress) didn't invent Mark I, however he contributed much to the creation of British tank forces and one of the first commanders.

So those who said that he did invent the tank, but pointed out family relationship get 50% of the reward, i.e. 375 gold. In some cases I considered the answer as not complete with no gold given. No complaints accepted. )

2. "Mother" is the correct answer.

3. Ricardo (after Sir Harry Ricardo), famous British engine designer who invented the engine for Mk V.

4. It was German Pz. IV actually. No Soviet bias in WoT.  )
Actually it amazes me that so many chose T-54. Guys, it was added to the game not so long ago.

And the prize winners (I chose 15):

1.      Virking – 750 gold EU
2.      b0Gia – 750 gold EU
3.      Knaster – 1125 gold EU
4.      SycaMore – 750 gold EU
5.      Hotwhells – 1125 gold EU
6.      xero8p – 1125 gold US
7.      Bodasz – 750 gold EU
8.      PCManiac – 750 gold EU
9.      Molen – 1125 gold EU
10.  Vasili1945 – 750 gold EU
11.  kwi4tusz3k – 750 gold EU
12.  VIPER262 – 750 gold US
13.  Someus – 750 gold EU
14.  MMark EU – 1125 gold EU

and special prize for the player - infilTRAITOR from EU server who was first to guess the first tank in World of Tanks. 1875 gold for him.

The prizes will arrive soon. Unfortunately no one managed to give the correct answers all the questions.

See you next time.

  8. Hey overlord, something about the new update: You have again added new voice overs.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make it possible that tanks of different countries can use different voice overs. PLEASE

    I would use the crazy american voice over you added in 6.4(?) for american tanks.
    Zen I would need an angry German speaker to make ze new crazy and angry voice overs for ze german panzerwaffe.
    The brits could also be hilarious. "Bloody hell we've been hit!" "Good sir, that one penetrated the enemy."
    You are adding French tanks too. \o/ "help we ave been it! Better turn around and ide!"

    PLEEAAASE! U do not even have to make the voicovers, once you the ability is there, fans will make them on their own. Please add it and make it simple to change.

  9. Overlord,
    Please update the indevelopment part of the website imediatly, and for craps sake, put the M103 on it please, your customers are tired of being screwed over by you all.

  10. General_Jack_T_Ripper,

  11. Thank you for the shiny, Mr. Oli ^^

  12. Overlord

    "Speudo Virking" is not my nickname.

    This is just "Virking".

    I want to say speudo is Virking.

  13. Thank you Overlord i checked my account.

    This good.


  14. Hmm base on the number of EU winners, I guess the event happened while most of the NA population was asleep =(

  18. AOD_VIPER262

    Thanks Overlord :)
    and thanks for fixing the E-Series

  19. thanks overlord i was lucky today :D plz post what we are going to see in 6.8 update and some fotos from french tanks thanks

  20. Overlord, sorry for the off-topic here but could you answer this one question? I can't seem to get an answer from developers.

    Q: Why do tier 5 light tanks cost so much XP and so much credits? It makes no sense.


  21. Overlord,
    I'm really loving the M24 Chaffee. Any plans to ever add the M41 Walker Bulldog to the game? If not, why not? I think it would fit into the game pretty well as a tier 6 or 7 light tank.

    -Rognik (US Server)

  22. Answer on 4:

    first 3 tanks..

    second three??

    and next 3??
    M3 Stuart

    again next 3?
    M3 Grant

    Give me chance i can count to tommorow :D

    I want my reward too XD

  23. "Q: Why do tier 5 light tanks cost so much XP and so much credits? It makes no sense."

    Think about it. It is to make this vehicles only attractive to people who really want to scout.
    So many complains about the Tier 4 Scout tanks "why do i have to scout.. etc"
    This time it will be better.

  24. @Overlord: Don't know if you can easily do that but I'd like to see some statistics about the maps. For example how often is a battle result draw, kill or capture? How many medals are earned on them? For example the Wittmann medal is more easier to gain on open maps.

  25. Overlord, Vk2801 is worth nothing at the moment, you have to buff it A LOT.The 10k repair cost is OK for a tier 7 heavy tank, and NONSENSE for a tier 5 light tank.

  26. What a big failure this quiz. It's so easy to see which guys just copy pasted the answers of someone else. Some didnt even change the errors like missing spaces etc. You should not reward this.

  27. Thanks for sharing – There are couple of others which I think deserve a mention like 99 Designs etc.

    1. There are hundreds of reputable bicycle manufacturers—large and small—to choose from.
      Usually, though, a bike's brand name is notcarbon road wheelas important as the makers of its individual parts.
      After all, a large percentage of bike frames are made in Japan or China and sold to U.S. companies who simply put their name on them.
      And as large American companies consolidate the industry by buying out smaller bike manufacturers,
      brand names are becomingtubular wheelseven more confusing ysbike01 and irrelevant.
      Keep in mind, as well, that large manufacturers produce bikes in a wide variety of quality levels,
      from mass market toys to highly crafted top-of-the-line machines.
      The only time brand nameswheels for mountain bikescount in determining quality is when you're dealing with high-end specialty companies that make custom carbon frames and parts for their bikes.
      Look into which manufacturers offer the best warranties;
      many companies still guarantee their lower-and midrange aluminum frames for life
      (though this has become less common carbon wheelsas off-road biking's popularity has made life harder on frames).
      Some bikes have a limited five-year warranty, and other warranties become void if the bike is used for racing.
      While you should always remain open to a better brand or a better-suited style of bike,
      try to narrow your choices before you begin to shop seriously for a new bike.
