here is the post.

2012 Mystery Revealed

What to expect in WoT in the near future? A lot of stuff!
We give you the unique opportunity to get hold of World of Tanks release plans for 2011-2012. I'm totally sure most of the plans announced will be accomplished in time thanks to the team of highly-skilled professionals, that currently comprises around 300 people in 3 major offices.
With the development center in Minsk, Belarus, has fully functioning operation office in California, the US, and two forming offices in the EU - in Paris and Berlin.
The main focus of the development team is to introduce new game modes, add more tank models (French are coming soon), new maps (Jungles, anyone?), improve visual effects and the engine itself.
The detailed release plans are given below.

New Game Modes

Company battle divisions: tier 10 max with no overall tier limitation, tiers 8, 6, and 4 max with the respective overall tier limitation. Q4 2011
Assault (one team attacks, the other one defends the base) and Encounter battle (two teams are to capture the base in the center of the map). Q4 2011
Garage battle – players can use several tanks (one after another) in one battle (“limited respawn”). Q1 2012
