[WoTB] Get Your iDevice Ready. Updated

Updated May 5. The game is now live for the following countries of EU region: Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland. This is so-called softlaunch or regional release, so no more wipes/resets or anything.

The game will be available worldwide soon (tm).

Beta testers of EU region are getting the following for helping us in beta:
  • Beta tester medal class IV/III/II/I for 1/10/100/500 battles during beta
  • Pz.Kpfw. IV hydrostat tank (tier 5) for 1+ battles during beta

Are you ready? It's coming.

  2. Hey Overlord. Why can't I find it in the App Store when I click on the link?

    Thanks :)

    I thought that when you said get ready it meant it will release tommorow or something :)

  7. So, we know the game is Soft Launched, but when we log in to the App it just says "Update your client". How do we do that?

    1. Have you downloaded the game from the store or using the same version as in beta?

    2. Yeah, I've done it now. I thought that there was going to be no wipe until it's released worldwide, but I guess I was wrong.

      Delete
    3. Now there is not going to be any wipe.

    1. It's no longer in beta. It's regional release now. Yup, the game will go worldwide in near future once we check everything.

  11. Overlord, I tried to tell you this during battle, there is a really annoying bug in the General channel. The words "The" and part of "Censored" get censored and put in stars. Any word with The in it will get censored, and it's really annoying. I've checked settings and have found nothing on censoring. People have had to resort to putting spaces between each letter when they use "The".

    Please please fix this bug

      As for clan wars, just starting the work on this.

    2. Ok thanks so if CBT only took a week, it should be out in no time at all hardly.
      Yay! clan wars :D thanks for answering so fast! :)

    3. Well not sooo "soon", but fairly soon.

      Delete
  13. OMG yall are killing me... Your definition of soon is clearly different than my definition lol.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Also I'm really curious why Eu first? Smaller market, easier to monitor while opening? More cashers?

    1. Close to our timezone, lots of non-RU players :)

    2. I don't like you very much this minute.... Don't worry I'll like you again after release in the good place :)

      Delete
    3. North America, how many good places are there???

      Delete
    4. Not that many :)

      I especially enjoyed my trips to Orlando and San Diego.

      Delete
    5. You certainly picked some good places to visit, hope you had good weather during those trips. You are however officially banned from Texas until you get my blitz released!! :)

      Delete
    6. Ok. We've got an office in Austin.

    7. You realize you are not helping your case one bit???? Thanks for the info though, I'm sure google will help me locate address and I can be there in an hour!

  15. Are the rewards going to appear in ordinary WoT or just on WoTB?

  16. Hello Overlord,

    first of all I really like the game and I'm enjoing my Pz. 4 Hytro:-) Thank you!

    It's funny, the waiting time of 4 seconds is quite nice and the controls are surprisingly good. I think i will play this game. There is only one thing which confuse me, why is gold and premium time so expensive? Don't get me wrong, I have no problem spending money for WG products. I spended actual a lot for WoT. But WoTBlitz is a mobile game which you wouldn't play that often. I think also that the audience of WoTBlitz will be much younger and have less money than WoT player;-)

    Kind regards
    InSL

    1. I would like to see 4 seconds waiting time and such a nice ping in WoT:-D

      Delete
    2. We focus on the fact that it's not necessary to pay in this game. Note there are not timers, energy bars or fuel like in other mobile games.

      Delete
    3. Yes thats something I really like about WoT! I think WG is one of very few companies that do the F2P thing right! The games don't force me to spend money and that's the reason why I like to pay for WoT every month. I only think that WoT Blitz is a bit too expensive for a mobile game. Thats everything:-)

  17. How long do you estimate till NA release? Note* "soon" is not a valid answer

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That depends on how well regional release goes

      Delete
    2. Also, what rewards will NA get? A customer Service person said it would be different from EU

      Delete
    3. Someone said something about a T23 I think it was on the NA forum. It was just someone wondering if that could be it I think though.

      Delete
    4. Tank will be different. Beta tester medals - the same

      Delete
    5. Can you give us a hint to what nation? Please.......

      Delete
    6. We'll since I'm speaking English and said I'm not from EU I think that means I'm NA. What does NA get is what I meant

      Delete
    7. You asked for a hint, you got it.

      Delete
    8. lol thanks Overlord :) keep the hints coming ;)

      Delete
    9. I think it means we get an amercian tank as reward.... I'm not great at reading between the lines though as I thought soon would have been here by now....

      Delete
    10. M4A2E4 Sherman or T14? Only Tier 5's listed that would be "special" on american line.

      Delete
  18. I would really like to know if Boss and myself tied at 888 battles or if there was a cap and we were the only two to hit the cap? Also I'd personally like a bundle reward offer for my first 100$ im gonna drop on release date as a reward :)

    1. Ikr that was too funny, I do wonder if any of the EU players hit that?

      Delete
    2. The most battles on the EU Server was 826, I don't think you guys hit any cap, but you were just tied.

      Delete
    3. There were a few guya on RU with 900+ battles. By the way the beta on NA was one day shorter than on RU and EU
