Through the course of the Closed beta test, there were both moments of joy and frustration, but it would of been impossible to achieve such high level of the game without this testing. During the open beta test, we will do our best to take into account all the issues that caused concern and frustration. Tons of changes concerning gameplay and the community are coming, and rest assured the WoT team will be reviewing more and more information provided by the community. The WoT team is immensely grateful to all of our closed beta testers, without you it would be impossible to achieve all that we have so far.
Prepare for Clanwars and coming changes, because its going to be an all out war!

Tourist Guide to the Maps of WoT said: Written By: Ripper753 "Division Acorazada 250"
Abbey Tourist Guide
Abbey, the most religious map in WoT. Seems that war is plenty of churches and cathedrals, ¿why not to crush an abbey? In this beautyful landscape you will have two main paths to choose from, its not easy to decide. Make your choice!
Guide Map:
Posted Image
1.- "The Hidden Shortcut". If you want to reach the other side of the abbey without being seen, take this path. But be careful, many others can have the same idea. Move next to the wall!
2.- "The Unused Street". Yeah, nobody uses this street. The asphalt is new and some bushes have grown at the ends. Some people that lived in that street moved because the pizza boy didn't want to go there.
3.- "The Back Alley". Not very used neither. The monks empty the wc tanks there. It is not very nice to pass through there, a bit smelly and deadly.
4.- "The Marginated Bell Tower". The monk in charge had smelly feet (also known as the stinky monk), and the others built the bell tower far enough. Nice place to visit if you just want to wait.
5.- "Main Street". This street leads to the upper side of the abbey. Is the fastes way to reach the other side of the abbey, but life is not guaranteed.
6.- "The Scaler House". There lives the scaler monk. He dont use the streets to go home, he climb the cliff. Good place to visit if you are a voyeur.
7.- "The Bitten Steak Hill". That hill have many skeletons buried there. Heavy fights ocurred there, and in most cases the killed one was surrounded. Reconstruction of the name origin below.
Posted Image
8.- "The Dead Land". Not really nice piece of earth. The monks throw the trash there, so nobody go there. Now someone want to build a supermarket or a mall.
9.- "The annoying Balconies". The hill is plenty of balconies where the people sit and spit down. Really annoying to be below, but funny to be up there.
10.- "The Romanic Coumns". It leads to nowhere. Well yes, it leads to a cliff, so nobody use this path. But many people go there to see the columns and the landscape. It is typical to see one guy up there shouting "Hey! I am up here".
