Ukrainian WoT Streamer faces a 5 year prison sentence for extremism

In the Pskov region, a player of the popular game World of Tanks has been detained, as his actions encouraged extremism and promoted this pattern of behavior.
In the court of the city of Velikie Luki in the Pskov region, a criminal case was filed about extremism against local resident Mikhail Larionov, who in the online game World of Tanks allegedly called for “aggressive actions against the Russians.” This is reported by the center “Owl”.

According to investigators, from 3rd to 10th of January, 2017, Larionov posted on the site Twitch.com a video “Disrespect for the Ukrainian people!”. The video is currently unavailable. According to “Owl”, we are talking about a fragment of 3 minutes 21 seconds from the stream recording of the multiplayer game World of Tanks, during which the players talk through microphones. Larionov, who played under the nickname Mixa60RuS, and other players, trolled and insulted a Crimean woman under the nickname ANETKA210185 while impersonating the image of Ukrainian nationalists, who hate Russia and Russians.

For extremist actions the player now faces five years of imprisonment.

WoWS – 0.7.2 Q&A transcript with Lordofdroid and Sub_Octavian

Note: I’ll post all the WoWS news I missed soon. Expect a monolithic article.

Q&A compiled by MrFingersEU

For the French BB’s, why use buffed dreadnoughts for T5-7 when there would be more modern ships for that era that actually existed (in blueprints).
When they can use real-world modernisation, they use it. In case of French ships, they check blueprints, if it fits gameplay. They weren’t too eager to add sisterships in this branch, so Strasbourgh-Dunkirk. And there are plans for premium-ships, so it’s entirely possible the modern ships will be premiums.
Unhistorical mods: it’s not a bad thing to do, some ships had the chance to be modded IRL, but couldn’t due to circumstances, so it’s a nice “what if”-scenario. WW1-era should be modable to make it competitive in T5-6-7 battles.

French cruisers: the blueprint boxes, what were the weirdest things you encountered.
From the top of the head: quite a lot unviable designs, which were actually designed. They wished they could show them, but some are under NDA.
