Who are you and what is your position with Wargaming?

My name is hustleb0nes and I’m the Assistant Producer for World of Tanks Blitz.

 

How long have you been with Wargaming?

I started here at WG in September of 2013 so that puts me at the three and a half year mark.

 

What is your favorite tank?

For tanks in the tech tree, I've played the Tiger I the most. For Premium Tanks, it's a tie between the Kuro Mori Mine (Anime tanks FTW!) and the AT 15A.

 

Cake, pie, or ice cream?

Ice cream! More specifically pistachio ice cream!

 

If you could be any animal what would it be and why?

In my original meet the staff post while still a product specialist I said I would want to be a giraffe. My thoughts about that have changed over time and now I think I would definitely want to be a sloth. They’re in no rush to do anything and just live life!

 

If you could have any super power what would it be and why?

I chose teleportation in my original meet the staff post and still think I would go with this super power. Knowing that I’d be able to go to any destination in the blink of an eye sounds so satisfying. Just imagine yourself looking at a picture of a place you would want to visit. Now imagine that you have the power to actually bring yourself there instantly. That would be so mind blowing!

 

What are/were some of your favorite video game?

The Metal Gear Solid Series, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater being my favorite among the series

Mass Effect 2

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Any iteration of Street Fighter

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Chrono Trigger

 

What are some of your favorite Movies/TV Shows?

The Dark Knight Trilogy

The Star Wars Saga

Chapelle's Show

Lost

Battlestar Galactica

 

What is something interesting about you that not many people know?

I love to collect limited vinyl records and sneakers. There's just something so satisfying about the hunt for something you really want and the hype you feel after acquiring it. I can't get enough of that feeling!

I used to love the AT-15A, it was a beast! But now I mostly play other tanks and save it for the occasional birthday or platoon.

 

I watched lost until around season 5, then I got Lost ahahah.. ahah. ha.. I will leave..

You were so close to finishing Lost! Funny thing is I actually got into Lost by watching the very last episode first. Having no idea what was going on at first and upon binge watching the entire show in 1 week (thanks to being unemployed right after graduating college haha). I grew so attached to the characters that watching the finale again brought me to tears. No shame in that lol!

Hey hustleb0nes! Always nice to put a face to a name.

 

Surely you remember the "Play with the WG Staff" event a few years back; giving back an hour of Admin Crew work time to fraternize and throw some shells with the players of the Blitz collective? As an advocate for what was arguably the best Blitz event ever held on the NA server, I was wondering if you would be willing to bring this feedback to Dogface and see if we could bring this event back. 

 

  • Players that get in a platoon with a WG staff member earn 500 gold
  • Players that destroy a WG staff member on the red team earn 500 gold

 

Honestly, this kind of event would be just as cool without the reward...but the gold is a nice touch. Thanks for considering!

Bringing back some form of Community Combat has been brought up in the past. Pretty much the only blockers would be logistical stuff, however, please know that this is definitely something the team is marinating on. If and when it does, you guys will most certainly get a heads up about it!
