Not only will there be a tasty selection of new tanks, there’s a cryptic note about “new trees”. I’m almost certain this is a reference to the progression trees that allow you to unlock new tank tiers, but who knows? Perhaps Wargaming.net are introducing lumber mills and farming to justify their Golden Joystick for best MMO of 2012. Rumours that player-run Chinese restaurants will be purchasable for gold are unfounded.

Broken paramedic and coffee-drinking Englishman whose favourite dumb animal is an oxymoron. After over a decade of humping and dumping the fat and the dead, my lower spine did things normally reserved for Rubik's cubes, bringing my career as a medical clinician to an unexpectedly early end. Fortunately, my real passion is in writing and given that I'm now highly qualified in the art of sitting down, I have the time to pursue it. Having blogged about video games (well, mostly EVE Online) for years, I hope to channel my enjoyment of wordcraft and my hobby of gaming into one handy new career that doesn't involve other people's vomit.
