World of Tanks Rolls Over London With Replica WWI Tank

Wargaming had a pretty neat celebration to commemorate the initial deployment of tanks in World War I, 100 years ago on Sept. 15, 1916. If you couldn't make it to the event -- my plane ticket was clearly lost in my spam folder -- there's now a video you can view to see how it all went down.

As it turns out, the tank that was replicated in the event, a Mark IV, was present in London's Trafalgar Square 100 years ago and served as an effective propaganda tool for the British people. Wargaming even tapped the grandson of Winston Churchill to deliver an opening address to the throng of spectators.

Meanwhile, in the actual World of Tanks game, Wargaming launched a pair of game modes featuring the WWI-era Mark I tank, for both PC and console players, as well as 7-vs-7 action in World of Tanks Blitz. You can read more about the centennial event and the Tank Museum that co-sponsored it, on the World of Tanks site.

This is what they do with their budget instead of actually fixing/improving their game.

Lovely.
