Apparently there is a town in the Netherlands called Blackcock, hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

Well, it must have come from the former colonies, Suriname for instance as otherwise it would have been Whitecock, aaahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Perhaps the majority white people of Holland feel left out, due to the fact it's black, on the upside the can console themselves with the fact that it is larger than the white variant, hahahahahahahahahahahha!!!!

I wonder what "Operation Blackcock" really entails, lol!

Not very odd though, just standard tactics to use any advantage you can get.

By "capture" translate "buy from wargaming".

Block Quote

Tiger II: They also find out a break of the front armour was unlikely, and that several well-known techniques already used against Panthers or Tigers were not working on this beast. In the end, knowledge is power, right?

 

And thus it's one of the weakest tanks on its tier in WoT...

Since most countries used captured tanks as-is expect national colours were painted on them, logical way to deal with them in this game would be to give players use of ALL tanks disregarding the nation they want their crew to represent.

your "history" articles are for kinder garden ===> stop WASTING your time to things like this, and FOCUS your efforts on IMPROVING your game and your customer relations or YOU will be out of business soon.

"This tank (the Panther) is considered one of the strongest machines produced during the conflict"

 

Oh, the irony...

So why is the Leff and FCM TD with the french and not German like all the other tanks shown here are captured and used by the nation that captured them?? Oh wait also the Rudy (yes it's a TV tank like the Fury but still?)

So where are German beutepanzers like T-34 or IS-2 from this game? They even produced the T-34 in captured factories...

There's a whole lot of players that enjoy our historical articles and find them interesting, so I would not call them a waste of time, also since we're taking care of the interests of a good chunk of our audience.

Plus putting out there such publications in no way slows us down from releasing game content and patches. We are constantly looking at every aspect of the game, coming up with improvements and testing them, even if it takes time and not all of the process is visible to the public. Please don't be negative. :)

There is also something called WIKIPEDIA, which is the easiest to get a WAAY more comprehensive story than your way of telling the history.
