Hey there!

My name is Ash, though I’ll be known in here as Brynd. I’m the shiny new European/English Community Manager and I’ve just joined the Wargaming family to help further bolster the ranks of the English community team, alongside fellow Community Manager Ectar and our Community Coordinators ipaul72 and iScending.

Though originally born and raised far away in Middle Earth (aka New Zealand) I’m also a British citizen through my Mum and I lived in the UK for about 9 years before moving to France 5 years ago (yes, you’re right, I’m no spring chicken!).

I’ve been quietly browsing the forums since I arrived and will become gradually more active over time, both here, at upcoming “real-world” events, as well as Twitter, Facebook and the like.  I look forward to interacting with you and hope you’ll go easy on me till I become more settled…   :glasses:

Thanks for the welcome!  :blinky:

I'll definitely be posting, but our two Community Coordinators iPaul72 and iScending (and whoever our new third Coordinator will be) will be the ones mostly posting here.

Good luck! I'm sure you know by now that you're gonna need it.

A few questions, if you don't mind. :blinky:

1. Is this your alt account or are you completely new to World of Tanks?
2. Do you know Russian?
3. Any previous relevant work experience?

1. This is a new account. I'll admit I'm not a veteran player but I'm actively playing and loving the game. :smiles: You won't see me as often in the more technical threads but we have more than enough game veteran staff members to cover those places till my experience levels raises.
2. I know Russians!
3. Well, I've been in the games industry since 1999: roughly 9 years as game designer while I lived in United Kingdom, and most recently almost 5 years as a Community Manager.

Thank you! Don't worry, I come with no preconceptions and an open mind... though experienced enough to not require the label naive.  :glasses:

Now whenever they ask for the EN Community Manager to come over for something, or "Who is the EN Community Manager?" it's a bit like this....
