Hello everyone, you better brace yourselves, because trolling is coming to World of Tanks portal and servers (I personally am not very fond of this “holiday”, because last year I posted a serious article and everyone thought I was trolling – I wasn’t :D). Apart from the data-mined new “game mode” (the Karl mortar plus the Battlecity map), Wargaming is going full-blown troll mode on RU portal today. In a serious-looking post titled “Wargaming announces the “Avenging the Claw” project”, Wargaming “introduces” the “initiative RakoSchit” (“Crayfish shield”), a “charity organization, bent on saving and protecting the river crayfish”. They even made a really nice video: * * Those of you, who read FTR often probably know, that “rak” (crayfish) is a Russian word for “noob”, so… yea :) Overall, very nicely done – EU server should have something like this for “tomatoes” :) Another trollpost came from EU Polish community: Introducing “World of Starships” :) Too bad it’s just trolling, something like that (if done correctly!) could actually be pretty cool. By the way, although the Russian document, posted earlier today (by Yuri Pasholok) is authentic, I am not quite sure the Panzer III/IV with Schmalturm is (he is a known troll after all)…. :)
