Armored Warfare advertisement banners have appeared in Cyprus, very close to WoT banners. Mail.ru does not release any statement why they chose Cyprus specifically.
The mail.ru group have displayed an advertisement on the news ticker of the National Library in Minsk. It is a play on words, the Russian original stating “ВОТ и потренировались. А теперь настоящая техника”, translating to “Training is over. And now for the real armor.”, whereas the sequence “ВОТ” means “WoT” in Latin letters. Mail.ru group stated that no relation to World of Tanks is implied, and the interpretation of the sentece “ВОТ и потренировались” is false, because simply “вот и потренировались” (small, not capitalized) was meant.
