Chris Keeling, Military Advisor at Wargaming.net, developers of World of Tanks, was interviewed for Tobold's MMORPG Blog, speaking on various aspects of the game. The main topic of the conversation was the matchmaking system, which has changed from release to release as World of Tanks has tweaked the balance due to player feedback and data collected from literally millions of battles.
"Chris: I serve in a variety of roles – which is unusual for me because I am normally a writer or designer on a development team. I had the privilege of working with Wargaming.net on their previous World War II RTS, Order of War, acting as the game writer and also as their advisor on military and historical topics, American culture, and the English language, and have gone on to serve in similar capacities on World of Tanks. I am also involved with some of the communities that relate well with World of Tanks, including veterans, historians, tank modelers, and reenactors, and use my contacts there to evangelize the game in those areas."
