About Us & Our Mission

The Daily Bounce started in June 2016 as a small project for a personal blog. Soon after, the community grown to huge levels and it didn’t take long for a hobby to become a second job. We are proud to deliver the most accurate news for World of Tanks and World of Warships. Our reputation precedes us as credible and reliable journalists.

Constantly aiming for better, we now aim to bring you more news, more exclusive content, more historical articles and cover new games, and maybe even make this hobby our job and enabling us to fully commit to our mission.

Why support us on Patreon?

Until June 2019, we would rely on Ads for revenue to keep this project alive, but with recent changes from Google Ads, we have seen a cut of over 85% to our ad revenue.

We have always only made enough to cover the expenses and to give a little help to some of our authors. Now we face a scenario where we can’t even pay for the expenses, let alone help the authors

With your help, we will be able to keep the blog running and keep it ad-free, translate more historical content and create new historical articles. We also aim to have an online shop with exclusive products for all readers, where Patrons will get them with significant discounts or even for free.

Without your support, we won’t be able to continue our work. Please consider supporting us and if you already do: thank you!

About Harkonnen

My name is Duarte Teixeira also know as Harkonnen. I’m Portuguese but I’ve lived in the United Kingdom since 2011. Started playing World of Tanks back in September 2010, during Closed Beta, don’t actually remember how I got invited, but I do remember I didn’t like the game at first. After a couple of weeks, I’ve decided to try it again and never stopped playing ever since.

Me in the Vehicle Conservation Centre, Bovington Tank Museum

I’m crazy about tanks and love history, especially World War II. My wife thinks I’m a bit crazy but she goes with me everywhere I want to visit and she is now very proud to say she went over 10 times to the Bovington Tank Museum because of me… I went over 20 times now, yeah I know, but I have to use and abuse that annual ticket, any excuse is fine with me just to go down there see what I have seen loads of times.

But when I’m not visiting the Museum or other places, I’m at home playing World of Tanks, World of Warships, also got in closed Beta or any other game. I love RTS, RPG and First-Person-Shooter games, my first online game was Counter-Strike 1.3 back in 2001…

I’ve decided to start the blog because I wanted to write a bit more about World of Tanks and because I wanted to help out the Community but never imagined it would get to where I am at the moment.

Wargaming invited me to WG Fest 2016 back in December 2016 and I’ve proudly become an Official Community Contributor.

Please do feel free to contact me if you want to talk or share anything related to World War II, tanks, World of Tanks, Warships, anything and remember…
