For the Record: World of Tanks recycling
Source: http://world-of-ru.livejournal.com/2895314.html Hello everyone, this might not be something new for some of you, but those not oldschool enough might have not heard. Wargaming is generally an eco-friendly company, because it recycles – this is not a bad thing actually, it’s just a statement. Take for example the following case, posted on RU forums by Maiorboltach. Before World of Tanks, Wargaming produced a strategy game called the Order of War. Order of War was somewhat successful – but this is another matter entirely. Anyway, check this out. Order of War victory theme: * World of Tanks victory theme: * * Another case of recycling was Slava Makarov admitting that the early alpha version of World of Tanks used tank models from Operation Bagration, another Wargaming game. Those days are long gone however. An interesting thing, though – back to Order of War. Jeremy Soule made some tracks for Order of War (in case you didn’t know, Jeremy Soule is a well-known composer, who created for example the epic Dawn of War soundtrack). One of his tracks, “A Summons to Madness” (can be heard here) was implemented into the WoT client until 2012 under the designation of “14 Nazis_Theme_High” and it was featured as a regular battle melody in WoT open beta and perhaps some time after release (it’s very likely Wargaming does own the rights to this melody, an interesting case though). And what happened to Jeremy Soule and war games? Well… Either way, it’s interesting I think to see, how some things get re-used. Not that it’s a bad thing, it simply… is.
