Can't wait for Wargaming to set up a meeting in the Missouri.  Will need a lot of notice if they do it.

Hey, How about LAS VEGAS?    We have the airline connections, hotels, and great weather and host many of the largest conventions nearly weekly so have the know-how and experience to meet any demands you may have.

This is very cool.  I am seriously considering going since getting to the LA area is straight forward for me.

I expect the WG team have already been contacted by the language police regarding "anchors aweigh" (not "anchors away").  Unless they deliberately wanted some play on words here?

Are/Is there any plan(s) soon for another "Let's Battle" event.   Really enjoyed the one held on the Lex last November.   Also maybe a local WoWS event in Austin again would be great....

VR,

VR, 

“Let’s Battle” is the name for when all games are  involved in the event. This one is a Ships orientated event so we wanted to make it distinctive with a new name :) You never know what will be around the corner.

Well just pass this message up the line sometime, How about a customer event in NYC at the Brooklyn Navy Yard where most of the American Ships were built over the kast 150 years.  Just a thought.

Here's hoping they do that soon.  I'd like to make sure I can get in before I book a hotel room
