Kind of disappointed of how he didn't say why Polish people seem to flock to this game, but other than that this really has no effect on me not being a pro-player or Polish.

Polish people generally tend to play f2p games...

Edit: Ohh looks like I "offended" someone by speaking truth :Smile_veryhappy:

[..] We knew that there was already a massive uptake on PL teams [..] The dedication that the Polish gamers put into World of Tanks is really starting to show [..]

I've noticed that too in the rising klingon babbling in randoms. No offense intended.

Yup, just open General chat for 5 mins, you're bound to see at least 3 poles being warned for blabbering on in Polish.

You may not be aware of how things work, but PR people tend to not be of much use for bug fixing. I mean, you realize not everyone working for WG is a programmer, right? (some may even claim there are no programmers working for WG, but that would be a bit harsh :D)

Well, I can't speak for all my countrymen, but I believe that one of the reasons why so many Poles play it (beside the "free" factor, or the size of our glorious nation) are TV commercials. I don't watch much TV, so you can say how surprised I've been to see WOT commercials on prime TV time, on main channels. They could've helped spread the word about the game.

This game was popular among PL before those commercials :)

Arent PR's supposed to please the audience and generate them money? Arent they supposed to know what the people want? (trust me, its fixes rather then useless interviews) :Smile-bajan2:  What's 1 phonecall to the dev team..? :facepalmic:
:Smile_harp: PR.. dont make me laugh :Smile-tongue:

My first computer games magazine was a  polish "Bajtek". In the late of 1980s. :)

Soviet Russia has no own computer magazine's. :(

The first knot of a network of Fidonet in territory of the USSR has appeared in 1990 in Moscow. The Polish journalist Tadeush Radiush working in edition of Moscow magazine "Computer", has established in editions BBS and the (Polish) knot. Article about this BBS was then is published in one of the issues of the magazine.

This article put me in the amazing global network life.

Yup, and guess what... They own others without spending a dime! Some ppl will still suck even after spending a fortune in this game. I guess one cannot buy brains and thinking becomes rarity... :(
