World of Tanks Poetry Contest?

World of Tanks announced today on their site that they are having a poetry contest.

Tank Poetry Contest

For all bookworms among you as well as those who believe there’s a Robert Burns buried somewhere deep inside their personality, we are announcing a new contest that begins straight away!

We are offering you to compose a poetic text dedicated to your favorite armored vehicle presented in the World of Tanks. It doesn’t matter if you come up with a Shakespeare-style sonnet, use Dante’s “Divine Comedy” tercet style, or even practise in blank verse. What matters most is that your poetic dedication should be captivating and emotional. And it might be funny as well! In a word, we are looking for something really outstanding.

Please leave your masterpieces in comments to this article on our Forum.

The contest will last till 9 April 2010. At 1 p.m. GMT the topic will be closed, and the winners will be announced on 12 April 2010.

The winner will get two WoT T-shirts and five invites to the closed beta testing.

The runner-up will be awarded with one T-shirt and three invites.

Finally, one T-shirt and one invite will go to the third place.

Best of luck to all the contestants! May the muse be with you!

Just because it is April 1st doesn’t mean it has to be a joke, right?

They also have a new teaser trailer out.  I’m not sure what to make of it.

    The video is actually really funny, as I’m guessing (since I don’t follow the game beyond what you write here) that the real ‘hardcore’ tank people are making post after post about how such and such is not realistic because on this one day during WWII, something might have happened and hence game feature X is impossible.

    That trailer is smart in all the right ways.

    Honestly, I have absolutely no interest in anything Tank or even anything WW2, but WoT really has… something. I hope it’s a big hit just so the people behind it go on to make another MMOin a setting I actually care about.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
