Ha. They didn't even bother to take "Battlefield 1942" out of the big long description for the game, or replace it with "Tank Battlegrounds".

I'll bet the entire point is this:
Developer: 自由合伙人
Publisher: 自由合伙人
Release Date: May 30, 2019
Requires 3rd-Party Account: YZM (Supports Linking to Steam Account)
i.e. Just trying to get you to submit your information to them, maybe even payment information, under the guise of "setup your account on YZM." Just ripping off whatever convenient game they felt might attract enough people to actually do it.

Hey, maybe we can grab the spotlight by claiming to be "The world's first official Tank Battlegrounds server!" 😜
