Hello everyone, you might have already seen the 8bit Tales Santa post on the portal. It’s kinda cute as always (I like these video series). Just a little explanation however. At cca 1:10, the Maus “boss” gets killed and a ghost of a deer flies up from it: Why a deer? That makes no sense? Unless it’s reindeer, but why would a reindeer be a Maus? Anyway, what I think this means is – the authors of the video are Russians. In Russian, the word for a noob is “olen”, which literally means “deer”. This is the point of many Russian World of Tanks jokes: if you see someone with antlers photoshopped on him, it is a reference to the “deer” (meaning he’s a noob). By the way, you might have noticed some other Russian jokes with another animal, this time a crayfish. In Russian, the word for a troll or an idiot (in WoT slang) is “rak”, which means “crayfish”. Lots of jokes come from this too. Both the deer and the crayfish appeared even in an official trailer for team battles, this is how an average Russian World of Tanks team looks like apparently:
