The United Nations couldn't do it and they have had over 60-years to try, but it seems that Wargaming.net only needed a weekend! OK, that was a funny, but seriously, Wargaming.net has announced their intentions to represent at BEXCO in Busan, Korea -- the largest game show in Asia which is running from November 10th to November 13th this year.
Their presence at the G-Star 2011 exhibition is set to include their traditional mascots -- the steel monsters that they bring along to the game shows that they exhibit at -- which in this case will include a Panzerkampfwagen III armoured battle vehicle (Pz. Kpfw. III Ausf. E) and the M48A3 Patton Medium Battle Tank that has enjoyed a second life after being refitted as an armored reconnaissance vehicle and can still be found in the inventory of the armed forces for countries in the Middle East and Africa.
All of the attendees at the show will have a unique chance to touch these beloved battle chariots live and be touched by them, and how cool is that? In addition to hanging out with some heavy metal the visitors will be invited to storm the battlefields in the frames of a World of Tanks Open Tournament, during which they can win some worthy prizes.
The World of Tanks exhibit at E3 2011 included some real tanks and a staff of hosts and hostesses who dressed in period uniforms and costume and answered questions about the game, and what it feels like to really fight from inside one of these steel monsters.

About World of Tanks World of Tanks is the first and only team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. In the world of World of Tanks gamers can launch into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world from the comfort of their computer chairs, and their arsenal includes more than 150 historically accurate armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, all of which have been very thoroughly researched to provide spot-on realism of the likes never before available in armored battle OR the MMO genres. The infamous Russian-built T34 Medium Tank -- manufactured from 1940 to 1958 -- is often credited as the most effective, efficient, and influential design of World War II due to its well-balanced attributes of firepower, mobility, protection, and ruggedness. A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game -- whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers -- each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.
Being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win most of the time however, and that is why it's all about teamwork in World of Tanks. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield, which is why the letters MMORPG also mean strength through cohesive bonding. Just add your favorite strategy, put together or join a dedicated group of armor cowboys, and build your own steel empire!
