Hosted by Vondle & JayRated

As you have probably heard by now, World of Tanks has been supporting the relief efforts for the devastating fires currently ablaze in Australia. Since launching our Bushfire Bundle in the Premium Shop last week, tank commanders from across Asia have come together to raise over $20,000 AUD for BlazeAid and their incredible work rebuilding rural communities ravaged by fire. To those who have already donated, on behalf of the ANZ team — thank you so much!

To continue to support this fantastic organisation, we will be hosting an auction tomorrow during an 8-hour charity stream. There will be over 40 items up for grabs in the auction:

  • Exclusive tanks such as the  VIII Type 59 X AMX 50 Foch (155)   and  X FV215b (183)  
  • Personalised experiences from Wargaming Asia, including a custom digital print from the World of Tanks art team, and a 1-on-1 platoon/Q&A with the World of Tanks Regional Product Director, CynicalSilicon
  • Masterclasses in game design, development and publishing from the Wargaming Sydney office
  • Merchandise from all over the globe, including some signed by Wargaming founder Victor Kislyi

Both the stream and the auction will be live from 12 — 8pm UTC +8, and 100% of all funds raised from them will again be donated directly to BlazeAid.

You can find the full list of items available for auction below. If you would like to bid on an item, you can do so via this form:

About Wargaming Sydney Masterclasses


All Wargaming Sydney Masterclasses are 2-hour sessions, held online or in person (Sydney CBD only). If you are the winning bidder for any of these masterclasses, you will be put in touch with your class master to arrange a time and to get an idea of what areas you’d like to focus on.

Leigh Harris, Senior Game Designer

Leigh Harris is a Senior Game Designer at Wargaming Sydney, and ran Flat Earth Games (TownCraft, Metrocide, Objects in Space) with his sister Elissa for 8 years prior to joining the team.

Are you working on a game at any stage of development and want some professional insight? Leigh has spent his entire 18-year career in video games, with roles spanning game design, PR, journalism and teaching. He’s been the lead designer on multiple award-winning games, and has spoken on all things video games around the world.

Eric Fear, Senior Technical Artist

Eric Fear was previously Co-Founder of Inspace XR, creating Virtual Reality design software for architects, and currently listed top-5 on the Australian Financial Review's prop-tech startups to watch in 2020. Before that he was a teacher in the Game Art faculty at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE).

“In my career I’ve worked on dozens of applications in the serious games, visualisation, and simulation spaces, predominantly creating digital 3D spaces before they have been built. This allows designers to refine, owners to sell or lease, and construction to risk-mitigate and train. Some of these clients range from Coca-Cola, Viacom, Macquarie Bank, and Lendlease, to name a few.

In my session I will be able to cover 3D modelling techniques for games, provide feedback on art portfolios, or help level-up experience in game engines (specifically Unreal Engine 4).”

Ally is a TEDx Speaker, Women's Weekly "Women of the Future" award-winner, and was named 2019's "Industry Champion" at the Australian Game Developer Awards.

Ally’s session will cover all things game production, and running the development of a game at any scale, from Indie to Triple-A.

Sylsien Harding, Senior Project Manager

“While I’ve been at Wargaming, I’ve managed the Sydney effort on the render tech for the WoT 1.0 ‘Encore’ engine, World of Warships: Legends, and World of Tanks AR Spectate, which showed at Gamescom 2018. Although it has its challenges, I really enjoy working as part of a global development team; it’s awesome to see how different people work and to see all the parts come together from all over the world.

My session will be focused around Project Management skills and agile development — working through the project lifecycle, ensuring there’s progress, and managing stakeholders. Also more generally, productivity, and people and team management.”
