World of Tanks players forced to abandon livestreams at Tankfest
World of Tanks remains one of the world’s biggest games, and streamers of the game on Twitch are a big deal. Therefore those streamers would need a pretty decent reason to abandon their shows while playing the game live – such as what happened to World of Tanks streamer QuickyBaby, and other players at Tankfest 2019 today.
Word is reaching us – mostly thanks to QuickyBaby himself and the viewers who caught his stream – of a “fire or explosion” at the Tankfest event at the Tank Museum in Dorset, UK. According to World of Tanks player Eekeeboo on Discord, who was there, “there was a real explosion and a fire. We don’t know more details but we were evacuated for safety. As far as I know no one was hurt, but there was a large explosion and they’re getting it under control now.”
Despite there being reports of an explosion, it’s not entirely clear what caused the fire. If we were to speculate, it might have had something to do with the fact that the festival was built around tanks, which are prone to, as you might be aware, cause a lot of destruction and start fires. Or maybe someone left a sandwich press plugged in for too long or dried their clothes without cleaning out the lint trap, who can say.

At the moment there has been no official explanation given for the evacuation or the cause of the fire at Tankfest – although as Frampton was quickly back in the room playing and streaming World of Tanks again shortly afterwards, it would seem that it was contained fairly quickly. The most important part, of course, is that no one was hurt and everyone was evacuated safely – despite Frampton’s attempts to kill more tanks while in the middle of that evacuation.
If you’re not aware, Tankfest isn’t specifically about World of Tanks – although it is sponsored by the developers. It’s a yearly event held at the Tank Museum in Bovington in Dorset in the UK, and it’s described as “the world’s biggest display of historic moving armour” – or ‘tanks’ as they’re more commonly known.
