Interview With Wargaming.net’s CEO, Viktor Kislyi [GamingLives]

At this year's Tankfest in Bovington, GamingLives gets some lengthy face-time with Viktor Kislyi and talks tanks, planes, E-Sports, the free-to-play model, cannibalism and how games such as World of Tanks are helping people to communicate:

"Right now people, don’t connect. Fathers and sons, cousins, even brothers for god’s sake. We live our separate lives, somewhere far away from our families. It’s not typical to write normal mail or e-mail because you just say ‘life is good, the crops are growing and the children are going to school’. In this fast moving world you just send short sharp messages and people don’t tell each other what’s really going on. That’s a thing of the past. Platoons can allow a father to play with his son, for brothers to play together. When my son grows up, I will be the one who he plays games with." (Culture, PC, Wargaming.net, World of Tanks, World of Warplanes)
