  1. I just still wonder how you can have game developers in 2014 … and not have most/all of them speak English…
    It seems extremely strange.

    “SS: tasted that recently, it’s vile, no idea how they can drink that”

    -Different tastes.

    • Let’s just say that if modern world comes to your doorstep too soon, many won’t catch up. Don’t worry, they’ll learn sooner or later and if not, their children will because they will understand it’s an advantage.

  2. If you don`t like anyhting beer related, then you won`t like “kvas”. It’s like non-alcoholic sweet beer.

    • >Coca Cola that causes death.

      Sauce plox, otherwise its bullshit

      Although Coca cola is unhealthy just by the sheer amount of sugar it has, I give you that but causing death ? You know, drinking water may cause death too if drank to the extreme.

      • That’s what they teach in sovjet schools….western capitalistic beverages are causing death. Better drink some of our homemade poison!!

  3. Ummm 3 millon manhours per month ?

    Were they working 24/7 that would make it roughly 4 500 employees.
    Were they working 8/5 (like normal people) it would mean they have got over 18 750 employees.

    Compared to 9 of 10 employees took part in some education programs and those 9 add up to 1264.
    Equals there are 1404 employees.

    Were those 1404 employees work 3 million hours evenly, one would have to work 2136 hours per month, 534 per week, 76 per day all week.

    These numbers dont add up…
    Wonder if they have temporal paradox slaves that arent included as humans in the education statistics….

  4. SS please don’t insult Kvas. It’s a very nice drink and only cheapest stuff from supermarket is crappy. I live in Ireland and once I get a craving for it I don’t mind going to the nearest Lithuanian shop, in a car if I have to, just to get it. Taste of good kvas( called Gira in Lithuanian) justifies price of petrol ten times :)

      • I know I go to Polish shops too :) Good thing both countries got same tastes when it comes to food :)

  5. “- the largest department is “customer relations” with 21 percent of employees”

    Do they really count bots as employees? (:-o)

  6. They failed to mention another interesting fact:Percent of those 3,000,000 man-hours of work spent designing new Assault Maps since we only have a pathetic 4: ZERO.

    • I’m glad that the time spent on assault maps is limited.

      I’ve turned off assault mode in WoT and it’s been that way for a very long time. The assault on Malinkova was crazy especially if you’re in a T95 as you would nt ge tup the hill in time. Also assault on Prohorovka was silly.

  7. I wonder how much time are they spending making stats like this. Every now and then there are some statistics from WG about random stuff. They really like to brag around.

  8. I wonder which department do most of 10 employees hired every month goes to? And that would also means they are replacing 9-10 employee that left
