One more Object 777 picture

The Object 777 caused Russian players to be ecstatic as this vehicle was very much requested by the Russians. Some speculate it might be a part of a special Christmas "marathon" to get it, others speculate that it's a new CW tank.

19.05.2015 Q&A

Unfortunately, there's nothing new here apart from really small things (like how Storm is with Wargaming 7 years or so already).

So here, have a pink tank with a dick on top. Because why not...

Cleaner chat in World of Tanks

Hello warriors,

Wargaming RU is continuing its campaign for cleaner chat by punishing players who swear more strictly. As a part of this campaign, they are demonstrating how the amount of swearing in battles on RU server was reduced as such (from 27.4. to 17.5.)

This picture is is described as: "dynamics of toxicity level changes in combat chat of WoT RU". It's not really clear what the numbers actually represent - that 11 percent of all messages were toxic?

Mason! Numbers! What do they mean?!

In any case, Wargaming continues to fight other issues as well by:

- banning 775 botters
- banning 226 participants in rigged battles
- punishing 31783 players based on reports from the ingame "complaint" function

Object 777 on supertest

Hello warriors,

this is the upcoming tier 10 Soviet heavy tank, Object 777 Variant II - from supertest. It's not a regular vehicle, likely a CW tank.

You can read more about its history here.


Object 777 was a unique heavy tank project. It was designed by the Kirov plant in Chelyabinsk. In 1953, the drawings and a mockup were made. The project incorporated a cast hull and a streamlined turret. It was planned to use the M-62-T2 gun on the tank but the work on the tank stopped in the designing phase. It was never mass-produced and was not accepted in service.

"Free for All" and "Team Deathmatch" coming?

Hello warriors,

as you know, Viktor Kislyi promised during the WGL finals that something "big" would come soon. Now the Wotleaks server is reporting that "reliable sources" (which generally means supertest leakers) say that this "big" thing would actually be two new modes:

- free for all mode (everybody against everybody)
- team deathmatch (on special maps)

It's possible these modes will appear in upcoming patches. Not quite sure how "team deathmatch" would be different from the already existing modes (perhaps other tier limits?)

HD M46 Patton changes

Hello warriors,

as you already know, M46 Patton in HD appeared on the supertest (here are the armor changes). Its characteristics however changed too, as such (statistics for 100 percent crews):

- DPM buffed from 2624 to 2711
- reload time buffed from 8,918 to 8,63
- ROF buffed from 6,728 to 6,952
- accuracy buffed from 0,384 to 0,374
- aimtime buffed from 2,21 to 1,92

Accuracy on the move or any other characteristics were not changed at all.Description got a bit longer though, now it reads:

"The M46 is an American medium tank from the second half of the 40's. Its military designation was "General Patton" (in honor of George Patton) but the name is usually shortened to "Patton". This was the first tank built in the USA after the end of WW2 and it was developed in 1948-1949 as a modernized version of the M26 wartime tank. It was different from its predecessor mostly by its engine and its considered to be the first of the "Patton" tank series - American medium and main battle tanks produced until the early 80's."
