Wot NA – Server downtime

Source: WorldofTanks NA

Tankers, We are currently experiencing a power outage in one of our data centers, causing game services to go offline. Our team has been hard at work bringing services up in our backup data center and is still working on the solution. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the problem we do not expect service to return until Saturday, April 24 at 02:00 PT | 04:00 CT | 5:00 ET. All account data and progress are safe and will be available when the server returns.

Players are our number-one priority. We understand your frustration and thank you for your support and patience during this interruption.

We will issue compensation for the downtime once the issue is fixed—details are to come in a future message.

Sincerely,
Anton Pankov
Product Director, World of Tanks

So What is Up With This Thing?

114 SP 2 (Unfinished model)
     Is this an SPG? No. Is it a new heavy tank? No. Is it a clan wars reward tank? How many of those do they need to have anyway? No, this is the new TD everyone has been talking about recently the 114 SP 2. It is a Chinese BC 155 58 combined with a Borrasque and knockoff Russian bias. (Minus the clip) Why Wargaming felt the need for a mini FV4005 I do not know.

Mirny-13 Event Vehicles Preview

     By now, it’s most likely not a secret to you that Wargaming is going to add a Halloween event very shortly in 2020. However, with some of Wargaming’s recent activities, some of you may have noticed, that some of the events lately have contained a storyline, continuity, and lore, that ties multiple events together. So far they have dropped many hints about what the new event could be. It would be overreaching at best to speculate how the mode would work, but a lot of the vehicles are easy to understand if you are willing to hear me out and use your imagination a little.

Reactor Core from the trailer

The more eagle-eyed of you may have noticed this frame in the trailer when you first watched it. The tanks have energy weapons on them, the same type of weapons that the T-55 Thunderbolt had in The Last Waffenträger event that ended recently. Even more difficult to notice, there are many hints and suggestions in that recent event saying Von Krieger managed to turn into a pure energy form somehow. So is the reactor Von Krieger himself? I mean, when you defeat the Waffenträger in the event he insists that was not the last you will see more of him.
