For the Record: On Yesterday’s “CW Campaign” Post (Info from Ectar)
Hello everyone, so, yesterday I posted some info that allegedly came from Ectar – and he was not happy about it apparently, since he got “misquoted”. So, where is the truth? For starters, this is the original e-mail I got (unchanged, only removed one link ot the Utrecht post): Dear SS, Today I’ve been to the Xbox360 Community Event in Utrecht. There I was able to speak with Ectar for quite a while. When asked the question about when the Third Campaign starts, he responded accordingly: Q: So Ectar, tell us: When does the Third Campaign Start? A: Well, I don’t know. I haven’t been in the office last week so when I get into the office on Tuesday then I will know. However, I did notice that time has been reserved in my work calendar to play with the WG-clan in the last week of April. So yeah….. Also talked about Tier 8 USA en German Light tanks, about the USA LT he wasn’t allowed to comment, on the German LT they haven’t made a conclusive decision yet. Apparently 2 tanks were considered. Then we aswell talked a bit about World of Warships, the client is now in Closed Alpha. The group of alpha players (RU supertesters) will be expanded during the year. Closed Beta might come in the end of this year or beginning 2015. They were still thinking about creating an EU supertester group for WoWs. However, he wasn’t very optimistic about the chances of this happening. Minks is apparently still very pissed about EU supertester stuff. Ectar’s favorite tanks are: E50M, Hellcat, Centurion Mk. 7/FV4202. Hope this is some interesting information. Please only publish my nickname ;) With kind regards, Amayii [WHY] So, that’s that. With the earlier in mind and with Ectar writing he got misquoted, I started looking for the truth on my own, at least on the important matters. Two points I learned: - the campaign info is probably wrong, because the the info I got is that new campaign is not planned for Spring 2014, but for later. HOWEVER take this “cum grano salis”, because although the source is very legitimate, it’s not the person organizing it himself and there could have been some misunderstanding. - the German LT info is wrong. Only one German LT8 is considered (RU251). Here, either Ectar or Amayii mixed two things together – US and German LT8′s – there are two candidates for US LT8 (the T92 and the T49) and at one point, they were “competing” for the LT8 slot (with certain people at WG favouring the T92, others the T49). In the end, the T49 “won”, but T92 is still officially considered as a LT8 candidate and it is possible that Americans will (not immediately) get two LT8′s. And one speculation: - the WoWs stuff I don’t know about, but considering the fact that the alpha testers from EU are doing just fine, I’d say that the chance of having WoWs EU supertesters is not zero.
