I think it is good tradeoff/compensation that we dont have finnish language community subforum  :blinky:

 

I wouldn't probably even use it if we had. English is the language for forums and I have no interest in talking in Finnish with only Finnish dudes. English is much more convenient.

Has the first 150 been contacted yet? Me and some others that I know signed up well before the places were announced full (like the evening of 26.9) and we still have not received confirmation mail.

I don't know if they have contacted them or not, but me and a friend of mine sure didn't get any info and we posted when it was announced.

I don't think they did yet. They have not yet updated any posts to reflect this. I would assume that they will get it done today/tomorrow. Patience is a virtue.

That is not point, yes we some of us can use English quite well but finnish community is somewhat big and we have many top 10 clan in EU server and who won the nationals, i wonder?  There are also those who dont speak english and dont want to speak it.

Also just to clarify, if you want to come, there is still lots and lots of space to sign up.   The limited offer is just because we're only able to pay in the first 150.  Everyone after that would pay normal admission. The sign up thread is to have a method to filter out 150 players and to get a rough idea of how many people are going to attend. To give you a rough idea the first 150 sign ups were filled within 2 hours of the article going live. After 24 hours we had over 14 pages of sign ups.

Past experience of events like this shows it's very difficult to guage how many people will turn up. For Sweden for example we expected about 300-400 max. The museum had over 700 visitors on the day it turned out.

Coming from Oulu (550 km's north of Parola) with my 12 years old son who also plays WoT.

Last autumn visited Parola for the first time. A great museum, well worth visiting many times.

Count me in and one companion.  It'd be cool if you could arrange some makkara baari too!  (Is there any updated info about the event? Because we're one week away from event's day and I've not seen anything; museum webpage has nothing published about this event, and VR trains availabe schedules are only to arrive at 10.42 hrs to Parola, maybe next time someone could organize this in a better way!)

You could take a train to Hämeenlinna and from there a bus number 5 to parola tank museum.:smile:

 

Timetable for the bus number 5

(http://www.hameenlinna.fi/pages/410359/Linja%205%20aikataulu%202014-2015.pdf)

Basically the bus departs from Hämeenlinna train station 9:25, 10:25, 11:25 etc etc....

 

(Tank museum advert for the World of tanks happening)

You're in luck! We have arrange a makkara grill for the event!

 

Also what might interrest you ESL-guys is that I was contacted by a YLE reporter and they are coming to do a story about E-sports and World of Tanks is the topic of the day for them.
