** Most "blueprint" tanks, i.e. tanks that never existed as anything other than a drawing or wood mockup, in general serve as base-breakers. This is mainly because they tend to be far more powerful (and were thus never produced because they were either impractical or simply impossible to make) than historically mass-produced tanks. These can range from white elephants that were never produced because they were ludicrously expensive (like the American T-29 and the British Tortoise), to the out-and-out [[FanWank doodles]] of a bored tank designer which had no possibility of ever seeing the light of day (most of the [[SuperPrototype Japanese heavy tank line]])[[note]]The BigNameFan that Wargaming was getting info from for this line, Daigensui, was later caught trying to pass off fictional and completely fabricated information as "sekrit documents" to Wargaming, and is the very reason why the cancerous 15cm cannon is mounted on the Type 4 and Type 5 heavies.[[/note]]. The last of those are derided as "napkin tanks", the implication being that the only "design" work done was a sketch on a napkin during a tank designer's lunch break. One can get the impression that if a 1930-50 tank designer ever went off his head and drew a tank with impenetrable armor, a battleship cannon, and a helicopter rotor for flight, that tank would make an appearance as a premium tier 7 at some point.

If you need an example of this bullshittery, this is the very reason why the cancerous 15cm cannon is mounted on the Type 4 and Type 5 heavies.[[/note]].

** '''[=FochGate=]''' is the incident in which [=SirFoch=] was terminated by [=WGEU=] from the Community Contributor program in retaliation for harshly criticizing the Chrysler K GF [[note]] As in, ranting with ClusterFBomb about the tank's BribingYourWayToVictory qualities [[/note]].[[labelnote:clarification]]While most people would also add Circonflexes into this incident (for having been removed at roughly the same time as Foch), his removal from the program was apparently from an unrelated issue regarding some of the map designs.[[/labelnote]] Upon removing Foch from the program, Wargaming EU then threatened to file a copyright violation claim against his YouTube channel, which ended up [[HoistByHisOwnPetard backfiring]] in their faces because the public see this as nothing more than a poorly-disguised, heavy-handed silencing of criticism, and attacked Wargaming EU fiercely for it. [=WGEU=] did ultimately back-step from their unpleasant position and reinstated [=SirFoch=] as an apology. Unfortunately, Wargaming's North American division got into a pickle when it also dove into the mess and mixed up the previous message to "do what is necessary" regarding the previous debacle. Despite clarifications from Wargaming's top brass siding with [=WGEU=]'s recent backtracking, the confusion apparently compelled WebVideo/TheMightyJingles and several other Community Contributors to leave the program on their own accord.

** 5 percent [[labelnote:Explanation]]In January 2018, Wargaming responded to enduring complaints about the existence of premium (or "gold") ammunition (which has superior penetration to normal ammo) by announcing that their internal stats show only about 5% of shots fired are using premium ammo. Players widely found this to be questionable (or at least misleading, since averages would be skewed by gold ammo almost never being used in Tier 1 tanks and rarely used in other low-tier tanks, but used a ''lot'' in high tier tanks), so any time a lot of gold is flying there's likely to be "5 percent" jokes.[[/labelnote]]
