02.08.2015 Q&A

Hello Warriors,

just to warn there is no Q&A for today.

Going back to bed and read a book... still battered with a sunburn, but hey! Nothing better than a sunny day with Tanks and APCs type of batter! :P
Don't forget to watch Mingles with Jingles tomorrow if you want to know what we have been up to. The future is very promising. :3

A KV-1 on a diet?

Have a good weekend! :)

Happy Birthday Yuri Pasholok!

Hello warriors,

today is Yuri Pasholok's Birthday. Happy birthday gorgeous, wishing you all the best!

Wish I had more time with this lad at Tankfest, he is a very nice guy and was super kind to offer me his book (with a nice signed message):

Yuri Pasholok's book has received the Kitty paw seal of approval!

Wallet Warrior Killer

Hello Warriors,

decided to erase and redo the post about the "Wallet Warrior Killer" as my conscience can not allow name and shaming, I believe its wrong even if the jackarse deserves it.
Today I overslept after yesterdays adventure (ocean, tanks and sunburn) and the post went up without my knowledge or supervision as I like to smooth the edges in issues like this.

So here we go,

Basically, certain players in World of Warships are deliberately targeting paying customers for teamkilling by selecting any premium ships in their teams for "execution" because they are "Wallet warriors".  Now while you may think this seems pretty dumb because it's the paying customers who are paying to keep the servers running, this small fact seems beyond the comprehension of our little teamkilling friends.  This in itself would have been worthy of a news post, especially since the subject was originally raised (without disclosing the teamkillers' identity) in a WoWS NA forum thread in which the dumbass took part and outed himself, but the naming and shaming of the particular teamkiller in question is not something I wish to promote on Status Report, therefore the original post has been deleted and I've posted this in order to explain the situation.

Leclerc in combat


Hello warriors,

So, it looks like we now have Leclerc tanks and Leclerc-based AFV's fighting in Yemen.

The Saudis is supporting the Shiite movement Ansar Allah by their modern armor - the Leclerc tanks. Previously unseen armor arrived to the Aden region - these are presumably the UAE Leclerc tanks, previously exported to this country. Modern BMP-3's appeared there as well (same source) and it's possible that these vehicles do come with UAE crews, they aren't just leased vehicles. The Emirates do not deny their involvement, at least two deaths of UAE soldiers were officially reported recently.
