World of Tanks Security "Event"

Wargaming is rewarding players with in-game currency in World of Tanks for changing their passwords. This went down last week, we just noticed word on GameSpot. This page has the details, and while we see reports this move is in response to a security breach, the article doesn't mention that.

World of Tanks is a lot of fun. I'll agree with the other folks below, the game is very grindy.

One of the nice things about WoT is I think they handle the community (and the game) quite well. There's always something new on the website; new events, new sales, new ways to get free gold (the in-game real money currency), new tournaments, patches, tank history, and almost too many new tanks. (Curious? See the tech tree here)

Anyway, I think this is a very good incentive for players to change their passwords. All too often, people sign up with the same password as their email password and ten other websites and wonder why their accounts were compromised. They could've just said "OK everyone, you won't be able to login until you change your password", but no. They give free in-game currency. This is a good example of why these guys will be around for quite some time.
