World of Tanks celebrates the end of World War 2 (in Europe)

In case you did not know, on the 7th of May 1945 what was left of the Third Reich signed an unconditional surrender treaty with the Allies. This marked the end of the war in Europe and set the playground for the Cold War. Let’s not dwell on history that much and instead focus on what is World of Tanks doing because of this?

World War 2

Not yours to be.

Lastly, I would wish to mention that there is a special “Challenge”. A Tier I tank has to lead a tank company to victory! The Tier I tank which gains the most experience performing this will win 3,000 gold. That is not all, it is not the Tier I tank alone which gets the prize, but its entire team as well. The rules are as follows:

  1. Only ONE submission per player
  2. Only ONE Tier I per company
  3. To be able to participate the Tier I tank must receive Invader achievement
  4. Champion and absolute companies are allowed
  5. Company with  Tier I tank who earns most experience will win (Premium Experience bonus counts, double XP for first victory of the day does not count).
  6. Submissions should be emailed to address Contests_EU@Wargaming.net till 24:00 CEST (10:00 pm GMT) of the 14th of May
  7. Replays from the Tier I tank plus four replays from team members are needed
  8. Important! Email topic should be formatted as follows: XP Gained – Player nickname(from Tier I tank), and contain:
    • all five replay files in attachment
    • player names of your Company who took part in the battle

Make sure you have those replays, and follow the rules carefully. It’s easy to forget something important and lose your prize! There is also a 2nd and 3rd Place, each one offering a prize in gold.

All of this, combined with the release of Patch 7.3 today marks an excellent start of May. Now it is time to await news on Patch 7.4 and see what the Devs will come up with.

See you on the battlefield.
