    One gets the impression that Wargaming will soon give out to the mountain a full-scale combined arms battle. It’s just that while the infantry are separately rolling in aircraft and tanks.

      There is no infantry in the game. But their plans include a desire to unite tanks, aircraft and ships in one battle.
      In my opinion, this will no longer be a game, but to hell and, as on the side of the bow.

      It does not interfere.
      Instead of sticking into a zombie hunter, you can fight in tanks. Is TV really stopping you from fishing, picking mushrooms and chatting with women?
      But if you do not a priori watch TV, then you are right.

    Japanese god - why the hell is "happiness"?
    I have "Humel". Level 5 is a great art for farming. If they raise her level, you’ll earn horseradish on her.
    Something similar was already with the IS-4. I took a car of the 9th level, and for my level there was an excellent tank. Then some idiot wanted to make him level 10 - as a result, the tank became so expensive to repair that I had to abandon it and return to the IS-3.
