This legendary goalkeeper has honoured World of Tanks by becoming the ambassador of the Italian tank line.

Still sad for the red card that he got against Real Madrid. :(

So yeah, this pretty much explains why they can never balance the vehicles properly.

I'm amazed Buffon accepted to be part of this, but then again, money is always money.

And yes, I am Italian and I believe Italy did not deserve to qualify for the World Cup, not when the Azzurri performed so poorly.

My idea with Buffon was a super one, thank you WG for applying it.

It is really nice: the photo and the video also.

Buffon goes really well along with wot, in terms of male attitude.

congrats.

Not really considering the fact that it's just a universal account made for announcements.  It's not attached to any 1 person. 

 

IIRC in NA they told us that employees are pretty much required to play the game, but many employees just play it for fun anyway.  Like Meathead Militia.

I thought it was a pretty good joke. Obviously not to be taken literally, doh.

I see no indication of that.  There are many complaints just like this.

Well, he has for sure never played any of the Wargaming games, as the line "...your team backs you up..." is something that actually never happens in any of the World of games. :hiding:

This advert is hilarious...

 

But maybe Buffon does play Tanks in his spare time and is a unicorn? :trollface:

Yes, we need to play the game, yes most of us actually plays the game for fun anyway and yes we have some staff members who were actually players/contributors before joining the WG.

What is this news article about exactly because I don't get it? He is "ambassador" for the new line of tanks? What does that mean, what does he do?

 

Do we get him in game as a commander or is this just a wall of text without any real purpose?

​He gets lots of money and Sergey, who is a big fan, gets to shake hands and take pictures. Money well spent.
