  • Nice! I already got 11 years on WOT for PC 😅 been playing since the Russian Only launch. Nice to see cross-play for consoles.
  • 5 years on Blitz and its a total blast with my enriched *for free* T49.
  • Not bad 😃 yeah Blitz is a fun. It's an on-the-road game for me.
  • to bad WOT accounts were not interchangeable for BlitZ and the PC world of tanks. I don't have the time to grind to different games.
  • The more of this the better. I think I saw Phil Spenser wanted to end exclusives, and I agree. I'd love things like this to pave the way.
