I want to keep this short, but knowing me, this will be the longest thing I’ve ever written.
This is not the easiest thing for me to write either, but I wanted to address you all…or anyone who is willing to lend me their ears…actually, your eyes. Since this is text.
As you may or may not know, the Wargaming Emeryville, CA office relocated to Austin, TX a few months back and I didn’t make the journey with them and have been working from home ever since.
I have not been one to Kemp bush, so I will get right to it. An opportunity for me came up that I couldn’t turn down and after 5 years of being with Wargaming, I have decided to start a new adventure.
It has been an amazing journey working at Wargaming for those 5 years.
If not for you, the amazing community (Yes, even the folks who sent me hate mail and death threats), I would not have enjoyed being a part of this game and community during that time.
I have enjoyed all my interactions with you in-game, on the forums, in Discord, in TS, PMs, pigeon letters, and smoke signals.
Thank you for allowing me to be myself and not cringe (too hard) at the awkward videos, stuttering, and in person conversations.
I have met a lot of great people in this game, all from different walks of life, brought together by steel and explosions. Video Games are truly an amazing thing. Seriously, never forget that you’re playing a video game.
If you’re on tilt or having a bad game/day, get off WoT, go outside (I hear there are 4K graphics out there), get a coffee, sleep?…maybe.
To you Veterans – Do me a favor, instead of sending that angry and aggressive message to a player who did poorly, don’t. Teach them something. Send them a YouTube link on the tank or class they were playing, or just don’t say anything at all.
To you noobs – Do me a favor, Google is your best friend. Did you get a new tank, start a new tank class, or just new to the game? Do some research; there are plenty of guides and streamers out there with a wealth of knowledge. “How do I play WoT?” is such a complex question, and since this game is built around knowledge, spending time in a guide is just as important as spending time on the battlefield.
With that being said, you’ll still see me lurking about, praising the M3 Lee as an amazing TD, so don’t hesitate to say hello by message or by HEAT. Thank you again.
You’re in great hands.

A sad day for WGNA. MeatheadMilitia was irreplaceable.
