...and now compare it to this :

 

My question is : How many "Stranger Things" fans work for Wargaming ? :P

The blueprint track is simpler.
It has three repeating notes.
Stranger things uses nine so has more of a melody.

But they do sound otherwise very similar, blueprint song just sounds like more toned down or something.

Not at all the same feeling between the two.
Tech tree is more like a science theme
Stranger is more of mystery almost creepy theme

Would it even be a surprise if WG's staff took something existing and slightly altering it to use for their own product?

You mean like Stranger Things constantly makes use of Dungeons and Dragons references? Adapting existing products and using existing references is the norm, not the exception.

I'd rather see Wargaming take inspiration from this thing when 'RNGesus' kicks into high gear:

I should report you for ruining my image of Anna Kendrick.

She sure isn't wearing deodorant for a boom that big.

Synthesisers will do that for you. Since its vibe is so mechanical synthesisers are both great to refer to the 80s and 90s when they became immensely popular in music as well as sci-fi/space operas because of both their "canned, unnatural" high sounds and the deeper underlying tones implying undiscovered mystery. It's no real wonder a similar tune was used for a technology tree soundtrack.

 

Incidentally if you look at the purely social environments you could visit in Mass Effect, they're pretty much disco in space with only electronically produced music. If you ever found yourself in a situation where people in suits were lounging about it was a good hint that you were going to be drawing your gun soon.
