Victor Kislyi a Fresh Billionaire

10

Hello,

recently in Russia, to celebrate the “Victory Day“, Wargaming sponsored a World of Tanks tournament,  “Portraits of Victory”, at a Olympic Stadium which marked the culmination of a lifelong fascination with both history and technology for the game’s company CEO, Victor Kislyi.

He started two decades ago together with his brother on their apartment in Minsk which culminated to a present 150 million global users.

Bloomberg Billionaires Index. has valued the business at $1.5 billion and given the 39-year-old a net worth of $1 billion. Victor declined to comment the valuation stating that he lives a “very modest” and and has never tried to put a number on his fortune.

Kislyi controls 64 percent of the Cyprus-based business in his name and through a 25.5 percent stake held by his father, according to Wargaming’s 2013 semi-annual financial report. The business has 4,000 employees on four continents and revenue of $590 million in 2015, according to data compiled by Bloomberg and estimates by analysts. Continue reading

Tank Chats: Tortoise

17

Hello,

I’m trying to not sound too excited but The Tank Museum has uploaded a new Tank Chats, David Fletcher is unavailable at the moment, he got hurt recently and the museum didn’t wanted to make us wait so one of the curators, David Wiley (who’s a really nice person to hang out with, as long there are mini sandwiches around to stick in his mouth once he starts talking too much) substituted him, this time they talk about my beloved Tortoise!

 

Love the footage so much, I’ve already watched it over 5 times! Specially the rotating cupolas! Wargaming should just give the museum a couple more figures and let these men make the videos for them!

Hope you enjoy as much as I did! And thanks to The Tank Museum for this treat!

Q&A: Mohamed Fadl on E-sports

30

Hello,

Last week in Amsterdam at Casual Connect Europe conferenceMohamed Fadl, Wargaming esports chief spoke about World of Tanks on E-sports:

“We invested $32 million just into the top level of our esports initiative — not even on the whole infrastructure.”

“We spent $10 million the first year in 2012. We started to stream it out and said, ‘Guys, are you happy with esports?’ But we realized quite quickly that we were far from [figuring it out] because we had no idea what esports is.”

RG: Maybe some research on the matter before spending 32 Million Dollars on it would have been a logical idea?
