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.
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.

Yes, you could assume that after recent events Wargaming, company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships, would be more careful, but if you assumed that you clearly do not know this company for very long.
After long, long time in development submarines are finally coming to World of Warships. Well, sort of coming. And the gamers are sort of excited about it.
Or maybe it’s just a wishful thinking, but I got a surprising e-mail from Wargaming that made me laugh. Not with them, at them.
Recent developments in several titles made me think that gamers are truly weird, weird creatures that should be studied by science, because it’s not how human kind should work. Or is it?
Cheating is serious problem for many online games, but equally serious is the lack of ways to get rid of the players that do not follow the rules. Unless you do something radical, like Last Oasis recently did.
While YouTube has its fair share of problems and stupidity involved in the process of "making it better", it looks like some of the youtubers just can’t help themselves and blame YouTube for something that is... I can’t believe I’m gonna say that... not YouTube’s fault. Oh god, I’m gonna need a shower after this one.
