Old news, this should have gone up as the press release was done. (AUGUST 7th)
Two days late announcing a $45 million purchase which will most certanly have a positive impact on the game.

Edit: yes I think this was a good move, and congrats to both WG and Bigworld :Smile_great:

Finally, this is something they should've done earlier though.

Old news for people that follow intensively forums/blogs/websites dedicated to WoT. For casual players who reads only homepage news is a very good announce. Gj Wargaming :)

So I guess no more excuses in connection with multi-core support and optimization. Now let's see how long will you work on these. :Smile_trollface-3:

Whilst this might be old news to some people as it was announced a few days ago, the traffic through the main portal is much larger than what visits the forums and there is many players who still may not know about this information.

''We are very pleased to announce that Wargaming has now acquired the Australian company behind BigWorld...
our acquisition of it enables us to take all of its technology in house.'' :Smile_trollface-3: buhahaha.

A very good business move.

Does this mean that if someone else wants to use the engine they must pay WG?

I don't understand these "This is old news" replys... Not everyone has time to study every WoT related news portal on the internet! For me this is actually news. You knew it already? Well, very good for you, but you don't have to criticize everything all the time :Smile_sceptic:

As for the news itself, this is definitely a positive step for WG, looking forward to see the results! :Smile_great:
