FYI: The linked news article is dated for 8/7 and does not show up on the front page of the portal.  It appears quite far down on the News page and isn’t likely to be easily seen....... In fact, I didn’t see the article until it was linked in here(and I had previously been checking the portal for the teased “big announcement” mentioned in Weekly Assault).

No but it does help determine how much they should anticipate for things like prizes and swag

seriously, potato sack race?

 

How about real tank race between WoT players? please put me down for either AMX 13, AMX 10, AMX 30... all issues!


                Bad teams are in the same battle. Good teams work together! don't complain, contribute.

Google says its only 14315km (8895 freedom units for the less civilised folk) from Brisbane to Wheaton so the private charter should be cheap...

I have a few questions for the event area. 

Will there be enough parking in the park for everyone attending the event?

When will we be able to arrive or park in the park to get into the area to be there to hopefully be the first 200 to sign in at the event? 

Is the park open before 10 AM? For parking? If so so when. 

If there is not enough parking where should we park since I will be traveling from out of state and I am not familiar with the area. 

I just want more information for myself because in order to attend the even I will have to take a 4 1/2 hour drive to the event so I would like to know when I should leave and where there is parking and when the park opens to the public and for parking. 

Thanks

There is plenty of space to park here is a link to the park map https://cantigny.org...-here/park-map/ don't worry too much about it as the park has never "filled up" every visit I've taken, usually try getting there around 9:30-9:45 but I don't recall when the gate itself opens

 

The park does charge you a per car fee so carpool if bringing multiple people.

Not surprised by the small turnout of attendees at all. Can only blame yourselves WG!

 

I'd also like to point out a rather selfish decision that came to light thanks to lead game designer jeff gregg. According to he himself, he wanted WoT on console to be 'so much more' than WoT PC. So it seems we have him to thank for all the 'we're different from PC' garbage that killed/is killing World of Tanks on console.

 

Apparently jeff didn't learn that when you have a recipe for success, YOU SHOULDN'T CHANGE IT. Take note of the company Digital Extremes. Their game Warframe, is EXACTLY the same on consoles as it is on PC. Why? Because it's successful on PC, therefore it is now enjoying the same success on console because there's no difference in execution. Of course it also helps that DE listens to it's players and actually PLAYS their own game. You can catch DE streaming on a weekly basis, while actually playing the game.

 

So there ya have it jeff. You wanted to turn WoT into a product rather than a game and you've succeeded marvelously. Just one problem though:

 

We wanted World of Tanks on console, not World of Tanks: Mercenaries. The differences are astounding and unwanted. It's good to be ambitious, but this was the wrong place to exert such effort.
