Last night, we announced from Twitter that Wargaming.net has set up a “Change Your Password Event.” The request isn’t without incentive. Players that partake in the advice will be award 300g, the real-money transaction currency in World of Tanks. Processing of the gold delivery may take up to 24 hours after the password has been changed (mine arrived effectively immediately).
The request event was created in response to a security breach of personal information that the publisher/developer stores. The firm “immediately launched an investigation into the incident” and assures gamers that no financial information was accessed during the breach. Email addresses and passwords may have been breached.
At any rate, be sure to grab your free 300g and change your password to a unique, secure password. Random is best, but if you need something more memorable be sure to mix it up as best as possible.
