For the Record: Interview with Viktor Kislyi for Bit-Tech
Source: http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/pc/20...ng-interview/1 Hello everyone, recently, an interview with Viktor Kislyi (yep, yet another one) came out on the bit-tech.net portal. You can read it if you want to, the link is above, but here’s a TLDR version: - more than 90 mil players (SS: wasn’t it 100 mil earlier?) - February: record – 1,1 mil players online at the same time - we’re constantly updating… bla bla bla… historical accuracy… bla - WG has 3500 people all over the world in 16 offices - apparently the reason WG moved west a lot (SS: as in USA) was the release of Xbox WoT and Blitz - Android Blitz – “couple more months of testing” (followed by a description of what Blitz is) – “so far it’s looking good” with release numbers - 25 percent of all users are paying players - bots in WoT are “definitely a problem”, VK adds that it’s however a “lesser problem in WoT”, as the game contains no grinding per se like Warcraft for example. According to VK, bots are “not viable” on high tiers, because you pay too much for repairs - the biggest spender player in WoT spent like 10k to 15k USD in 2 years, it’s “very difficult to spend more than 100 to 200 USD” - VK thinks WG can still “analyze and fix” WoWp - some well-known bland WoWs stuff, no ETA on anything Overall, quite a bland review, but then, Viktor Kislyi is the CEO, he’s not responsible for micromanaging everything.
