I already got tickets and accommodation is reserved. I'll be there for the entirety of the event. I would like to be present as a translator (which I am), who should I contact from the staff?

Already got tickets, accommodation and ferry booked. Looking forward to the weekend and viewing the Wargaming stand from a distance. Sorry, but I don't like standing around in queues when there is so much to see.

I went to Tankfest and i saw the wargaming corner. It filled me with disgust to see people lining up to play a fantasy game on the computers installed there instead of enjoying the real metal beasts surrounding them...

A tiny minority were queueing for the WG stand.  There were more people inside the museum where they couldn't see or hear the tank display.  In fact there were more people in the bar getting rehydrated than in the WG queue.

 

For some a big part of the draw is that WG are there, I went in 2011 and have been back most years since so I have an idea of what it was like before WG turned up and Tankfest has profited massively from their presence.  Some might say they have made the event too popular.

I asked where are the developers as i wanted to ask some delicate questions. Not one single developer present. Only the usual useless PR guys.... Disappointing but not unexpected.

Actual devs were there in 2011.  I had a nice chat with Overlord.

 

Viktor quite often makes an appearance.
