We're three days into Taipei Game Show 2016, and things just kept getting better and better! What was the highlight of the day? That, of course, was when the voice actresses of popular anime series "Girls und Panzer" and "Arpeggio of Blue Steel -ARS NOVA-" appeared live on stage to greet the excited Wargaming crowd! If you haven't yet, come on down to the Taipei Game Show! We'll be here for another two days!
The first event of the day was “5v5 Challenge: Streamers Torpedo Duel”, which is a unique way of playing World of Warships. We invited players and famous Taiwanese streamers to play, and in this game mode, they were restricted to the first-ever Republic of China (Taiwan) Navy’s Pan-Asia destroyer, DD-14 Lo Yang.
The unique rule was that guns were banned – battles were to be fought using torpedoes only, which meant that players would have to test their ability to make full use of torpedoes in between reloads. Engagement ranges were also reduced,and for the most part, the battlefield was deadly quiet. The only sounds came from the torpedo warnings, which the silence made more alarming than normal. Each battle was filled with excitement, and all participants had a good time trying out this special game mode.
This was the most anticipated event of the day! The voice actresses of the popular anime Arpeggio of Blue Steel -ARS NOVA- appeared live on stage to greet the Wargaming crowd. At 13:00, not the voice actresses who voice Iona (Fuchigami Mai) and Myoko (Fukuhara Ayaka) from the series took to the stage. The audience was greatly enthused to meet the people behind the voices of their favourite characters, and they greeted each other with excitement.
While on stage, the actresses gave a short demonstration of their voice acting skills. Three lucky fans also got to go on stage and talk to them face to face in a Q&A session! An autograph session followed after, bringing an end to the event segment.
Ms. Fuchigami returned to the stage, this time as Miho Nishizumi from the popular anime "Girls und Panzer". Ever since her performance during the 2014 Taipei Game Show, fans had eagerly awaited her return! This time around, Mr. Max Chuvalov, World of Tanks' Marketing Product Manager, was on stage with her to talk about some events that they did together, as well as prospects for future cooperation. Mr. Chuvalov also announced a new mod for World of Tanks, which would feature Girls und Panzer content in World of Tanks.
Towards the end of the segment, Ms. Fuchigami played several rounds of Rock, Paper, Scissors with lucky fans, who walked away with autographed content. Following that, she exited the stage to thunderous applause from below.
Shortly after, Tt Gaming brought in some awesome eSports peripherals to share with the crowd.
For those who enjoy adrenaline-packed armoured warfare on the PS4, a special guest from Wargaming's Baltimore office sure got their attention: Mr. Chad Steingraber. He was here at the Taipei Game show to talk about the future of World of Tanks on the PS4. During the segment, Mr. Steingraber provided a live demonstration of in-game content, and answered questions from inquisitive fans, giving them a clear picture of what to expect.
