For our part, we have made preparations to deliver the best experience yet for all World of Tanks fans with loads of gifts, games and giveaways! Don't forget to check out our World of Tanks Facebook Album for more pictures of our alluring WG Girls! TPGS 2nd Day (Jan 24) Program


09:00 Ready for Opening

Although the weather in Taipei was very cold, many players still braved the cold to wait outside the Wargaming booth for the opening of TPGS at 10:00 am. 10 minutes before the opening of TPGS, all the pretty WG Girls stood in line in front of the Wargaming booth and got ready to give a warm welcome to the enthusiastic players.


10:00 WG Girls Welcome!

Players crowded in front of the main stage of the Wargaming booth, eager to catch a glimpse of the opening ceremony and the beautiful WG Girls. When the WG Girls sashayed onto the main stage, they attracted everybody's attention in the convention hall.

10:30 Wargaming Opening Ceremony

General Manager of Wargaming Asia, Mr. Jasper Nicolas & Senior PR & Marketing Product Manager Mr. Max Chuvalov took to the stage to address the public with a short speech. “I am glad that World of Tanks comes to TPGS again,” said Jasper, “we have World of Tanks, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 and World of Tanks: Blitz for every player here to experience our exciting games.” Max said that the Wargaming booth this year is 5 times larger than the booth compared to the previous year, and the number of registered players worldwide has also grown to 78 million, “I expect that it can grow even further this year.”


11:00 Hot Tank Girls Dance

The first program after the opening ceremony was a hot dance number performed by cute WG Girls.

12:00 Quest Card, Q&A Time

During the Q&A session, all players who answered with correct answers received special gifts. At the Wargaming booth, players could get Quest Cards to fulfill quests in return for great prizes. Once they have completed the required tasks, they get to receive cool World of Tanks premiums such as T-shirts, dog tags, lanyards, pouches and umbrellas.

12:30 World of Warplanes Show

Mr. Michael Zinchenko from Kiev, Ukraine, is the producer of World of Warplanes. He appeared on the stage to introduce World of Warplanes, the brand-new air combat game by Wargaming.

14:00  Lucky Draw & Game Experience

As there were many players and visitors at the Wargaming booth, many programs such as the hot dance and Q&A session were held during this period. The lovely WG Girls also appeared on the stage for a photo session. Many players were present in the game showcase areas of World of Tanks, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 and World of Tanks: Blitz, where they all got to experience these exciting games across different platforms.

16:30 Mini game - Last Tank Standing

Mini game - Last Tank Standing. 14 random players were chosen to participate in the game. They were given access to the German tier VII heavy tank Tiger (P) and they wasted no time in opening fire on one another. After an intense battle, all the lucky participants were rewarded with a Wargaming 2014 goodie bag each!


17:00 Grand Lucky Draw... and more!

Although the 1st day of TPGS was drawing to a close, there were still plenty of interesting activities waiting for everyone at the Wargaming booth. One of it was the Grand Lucky Draw where two lucky players get to receive the Chinese tier VI premium light tank Type 64. The second program was the Mini Game - Body Guards in which random players were chosen from the audience and then divided into two teams. Both teams were then assigned a tank to protect. According to the rules, they must destroy the opposing teams' designated tank in order to win. The third and also the final program was the Final Lucky Draw. Only one player was drawn, and the lucky chap was rewarded with a photo session with our 22 beautiful WG Girls! He was definitely the envy of all men that day.
