has launched a new app to help players stay connected with its popular RTS, World of Tanks. The WoT Assistant, free on iTunes
with an Android version to follow shortly, allows on-the-go access to
player stats, global rankings, Wargaming.net news and social
functions, as well as tracking personal stats such as in-game
progress and balance.
Above: A group of tanks gets ready to raid a 16-man instance
not to bang the old “wow, technology” drum, but can you imagine
how the real wars of the mid-20th Century would have played if this sort of thing had been
around? Permanent access to player progress and tank condition, the
instant ability to compare records and results with the enemy... the
whole thing would've been done in an afternoon. Or possibly
accelerated rapidly into Mutually Assured Destruction. Or maybe
Churchill would have gotten distracted playing Angry Birds and the
whole thing would've gone much as it did – look, we're not military
you can get the WoT Assistant from the iTunes Store, which also
offers a free preview of the game in the form of Wargaming.net's About WoT app.
