Videos From Igromir 2011

Igromir is the biggest Russian expo dedicated to video games. Of course it is not comparable to monstrous German Gamescom, however it grows fast.

Below are 3 short videos from Igromir 2011 in Moscow (October 6-9). The are not subtitled, but I will briefly comment each one.


1. Igromir. Day 1.


Olya invites everyone to visit Wargaming.net booth at Igromir to find out what is hidden behind the curtains.

Later she announces the closed presentation of World of Warplanes that was available only for media.



2. Igromir. Day 2.


It was a first public day with much more visitors. Many came specifically to WoT booth not only to play WoT just for fun, but also to fight for prizes (gold promo cards, and other stuff), scoring the biggest amount of experience. What was going on behind the curtains? See Behind the Curtains video!


3. Igromir. Behind the Curtains.


WN team is getting prepared for the 2 busiest days of the expo.

  7. olya = "OLGA" correct?


    They should really feed the cage dancers.

    I really liked (<3) the blond Valkrie model with the HMG though.

  8. Overlord why dont WoT comes to Hungary? You guys could rent Petőfi Csarnok in Budapest for low price and get tons of money, also giving away stuff would be cool.

    People from german and other neightbour counties would come to visit because they have money to spend but we hungarians dont :D

  9. Overlord, I noticed Wargaming's decided to offer the KV-220 in specials on the Russian server from now on. Any chance we could get the same deal-or even have it offered as a normal premium on the NA and EU servers?

    (Speaking as someone who bought every premium available..)

  10. Russian.Brides.com?

    ps: I'd love to buy the M6E1.

  11. ps: I'd love to buy the M6E1.

    Won't happen, it's been said many times. Those tanks identify people that have been play since day one, to add them in now would cheapen their value.

    I would like to see the guns RoF buffed though:P

  12. quote from Overload "A: Actually those are WoT dancing girls. :) "

    then those girls are good for nothing..i don't think by having dancing girls is a good way to promote your work/game..i am more happy if my money from the gold i bought is use to pay some cleaner to clean your office so that you can work in a good condition rather than paying those dancing girls..

    its a nice way of thinking but too bad the gold only YOU bought covers the clean of the whole WG office, other players gold (money) goes to the pockets :)

    A: Yes, of course there is such chance. We are thinking this over currently.

    Man I am sorry that is horrible bad... Did it rain like hell?

    @Overlord

    Do you play world of tanks on the NA server at all? Just curious?

    A: Mostly EU. My free time is rather limited, you see.

  18. You guys should be in Germany some more.

    I couldn't make Gamescom (too overcrowded), but there aren't any other events like that here...

  19. Overlord, when is the patch notes for 0.7.0 being released at the EU/US forums?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I say this with some hesitation, but it appears the matchmaker was improved recently? I have been in a lot of very well balanced matches, it seems.


    One more comment... if you are updating older maps, one of my favorites: Himmelsdorf would be greatly improved by a few trees and bushes in the center square. And it would take little additional work besides adding some vegetation. (no buildings or land elevation changes)

    It seems that it is loosely based on a real city, but not completely? Adding some view blocks would completely change the battle in the center.

  21. Here's some park pics for example:

  23. @Overlord,

    Q) We know the IS-4 is getting revamped a bit in the move to Tier 10. Obviously you can't go into detail about what is being done in that move (or it would be announced). But can you talk about the main changes being discussed? Just something simple like "More HP, less speed/maneuverability", etc...

    Two of my friends are grinding that line right now and want to get an idea of how the style of play behind the tank might change (i.e. a Maus plays a lot different than an IS-7). Any info is appreciated.

    -Thx

    A: More HP - definitely, perhaps another gun. Armor will be the same ofc.

  26. Q: When the new crew skills are released, will we be able teach our tank crews more than the current maximum of 3 Skills per crew member?
    If so what is the maximum number of crew skills a single crew-member will be able to learn?

  27. Offtopic Q:
    Will there be a Battle of Moscow special on EU servers aswell?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Q:Will the E100 be buffed in upcoming patches? I think at least 1 of these buffs should be considered:
    1. Weakspots (!!!), lower hull is too weak, why does the optics on top deal damage to the HP?
    2. AP Penetration increase (150mm)
    3. Better accuracy for gun (150mm)

    IS7 seems fine, T30 needs buff(but will change to td line anyways), HP nerf on Maus seemed too much.
