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.”

As for QuickyBaby, his viewers soon realized something was up when the people behind him started being evacuated – and he himself was soon forced to abandon his PC, despite streaming live at that moment to around 7,000 viewers.
