WoT Console- Live Q&A


Good day everyone,

A few days back WG Console held a Live Q&A session on Twitch with Creative Director TJ Wagner and Lead Game Designer WG Chuji (henceforth known by his first name, Jeff) here’s a transcription of that (as best I could, there were some audio issues).

Could you explain how map/game modes work? There are rumors that not all maps are in the rotation at any given time.

Jeff- Well, technically thatvis accurate. The way it works is that maps are divided by tier and we try to make a lot of the maps appropriate for the tier range that you’re in. One of my favorites is Provence, and if we tried to do a Tier X battle there (though I’d love to try it) you’d pretty much have the entire enemy team spotted in the countdown.

So because not every map supports every tier or game mode, they are also a bit divided by tier range. I don’t remember off the top which maps are divided by what, but that is how we do it , so you are kinda correct, they are divided by tiers.


Will we get maps like Pilsen, Paris, maybe even Berlin?

Jeff- Um, stay tuned, we’re working on a lot of cool new maps. Stuff we’re talking about and also maybe stuff we’re not talking ababout in this current question. Continue reading

WoT Console- Conquerors of Mars


In the grand tradition of console lunacy, WG Chicago has announced this years April Fools mode: Conquerors of Mars!

This time the old Lunar Chaffee is set up on the Red Planet, with low gravity physics to go with it, and Martian spacecraft flying about.

No word on whether it includes Matt Damon’s potato farm.

The Direction of WoT Console & the State of the Community


Good day everyone,

As most of you know by now, I’m primarily a Console player (or peasant, I have a good sense of humor about it) and have done what I can to post the latest goings on with the Console side of the WoT community, though circumstance has led to that coverage mostly being me regurgitating the game’s update news, with some brief opinions added in. I believe this may have lead to a bit of a skewed perception of both the console game and community. Very little of the console community’s voice reaches through here, as we’re not only much smaller than PC, but even fewer of them read a blog famous for covering PC. Continue reading
