Facing the need to rethink and redesign its portal for console players, Wargaming, the manufacturer of the legendary World of Tanks game, were seeking to replace their current solution with a brand-new custom one. For this purpose they conducted a tender to select a development service provider to team up with their in-house DevOps team. R-Style Lab stood out from the competition through its well-prepared technical documentation, implying the use of Drupal for the portal development, along with a clear vision of its functioning and further evolution.
The key tasks posed to R-Style Lab Drupal developers included:
Our scope of work included working on the Home page, the “About” page, the News page, along with a section dedicated to Featured Tanks used in the World of Tanks game. R-Style Lab was to ensure the enhanced functionality of these pages, which would be reflected in its new advanced front-end.
The portal provides a role-based access for 2 types of users: Administrator and User (i.e. content manager).
While the Administrator manages the portal’s workflow and assigns project roles, the User leverages key benefits of the extremely customizable Drupal CMS:
Other Drupal modules, used in the development process, include: Views, Feeds, Features, Scheduler, and Migration.
The system was delivered as a multi-language portal (including initially 6 language versions, later reduced to 5), with an intuitive navigation logic. We chose the Entity Translation approach over the Field Translation one, as it guarantees less load on the database by creating different language version entities of the same page and doesn’t multiply pages.
At each project stage R-Style Lab team demonstrated the implemented functionality to the Client by making online presentations and explaining its logic to future portal users, i.e. content managers, was responsive to the Client’s feedback and quickly introduced the necessary changes.
Today R-Style Lab keeps maintaining the portal’s performance and technical evolution.
