Wargaming is leaving Russia and Belarus

Wargaming.net, a company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships (also World of Warplanes, but realistically who cares?) is apparently leaving Russia and Belarus.


Wargaming is leaving Russia and Belarus

This is a surprising news since Wargaming was founded in Belarus and had "main office" in Sankt Petersburg, but as usual in case of that company nothing is as simple as it seems. Their main office is in Cyprus, while their Sankt Petersburg office was practically running World of Warships.

First of all it was really surprising for their employees, who learnt just hours before announcement that they lost their jobs. Or to be more specific they most likely lost their jobs, because company will try to relocate them to Poland, Lithuania and other countries, but there is no clear information what does that mean and how it will be done.

Second surprising element of the story is that they... don’t really leave Russia or Belarus. What does that mean? They will only separate themselves from Lesta Studio, a Sankt Petersburg branch of their company. The one that was running World of Warships... I wonder how will that work.

So, in another words, they separate themselves (or rather split in two), World of Warships and World of Tanks will be available in Russia in Belarus, but (most likely) under another parent company. What does that mean for users of World of Warships and World of Tanks? Nobody knows. So... just another, usual day of Wargaming news - you think you know something, but you really don’t.

Wargaming reached level of The Simpsons

Do you remember The Simpsons? You know, that TV series that once was funny, before it became the forgotten, although still going TV series. Wargaming just got to the new level of pathetic detachment from reality, just like The Simpsons.

Wargaming apologized! Nah, just kidding

As they say "blink and you will miss it". But don’t worry, you will not miss Wargaming’s apology for recent sh*tstorm, because they, of course, do not plan to apologize for anything.


World of Warships - the final chapter

No, it’s not gonna be another "World of Warships is dead" or "WOWS is dying" article. Unfortunately, this completely broken game is alive, and it looks like with the community they have, it will be alive for a long, long time. But it is a final chapter - I’m done.


It was worth it!

Few years back YouTube, as it is a tradition of that company, screwed over the creators on the platform by changing the rules of monetization and in single move cutting a lot of people from potential income. But at least now we can say it was all worth it!
