Here’s what happened with WoT in 2014 (I assume the numbers are RU server specific, not for the whole world): - the amount of registered tankers increased 1,6 fold from 70 mil to 110 mil (SS: that’s odd, didn’t they say in late 2013 they have 100 mil?) - the peak on RU server happaned on 14.1.2014, with 1.114.222 players playing WoT at the same time - WG team travelled 16500 kilometers from Vladivostok to Brest in France and met players in 24 cities - WG organized 55 events through the year and met 100k players on them, they handed out cca 100k bonus codes - there were WG League finals in Warsaw in April 2014, the stream was watched by 1,7 mil people - more than 50k teams participated in the Chaffee Races tournament - the support service replied to 1,3 mil tickets - new anti-bot system was launched, reducing the botting more than three times (SS: yea, after we had to expose them because apparently, “they didn’t exist” before that) - new fun modes appeared: 8-bit “Karl”, soccer and Chaffee racing, with Winter Showdown coming in early 2015 - added the Stronkhold mode - 5 new maps appeared: Windstorm, Kharkov, Stalingrad, Mittengard, Lost City (two of which are using historical architecture from WW2, Kharkov and Stalingrad) - WoT for Xbox was launched in February 2014 - WoT Blitz for iOS was launched in June and for Android in December.
