Greetings Commanders!

Welcome to the Community Spotlight for September.

Are you interested in learning new things? Want to talk to fellow players about specific play styles, or take part in competitions and showyour best moments in game? Perhaps you just want to have a conversation about tanks, find friends and meet new people? Come and check out the World of Tanks forums. Many things tool place during the month of Spetember, such as competitions, discussion about current in-game vehicles, plenty for new and old players alike in our in our Game Guides & Tutorials section, and also Q&A sessions from the developers. If those don’t take your fancy, then you can always just drop in to say hello, as there are lots of things to discuss and do within the forums!

Listed below is just a quick brief of what's been happening through out the month of September!

Youtuber of the Month

The YouTube account we’ll be watching in October is Maxwell, a.k.a. ThunderFunk, commentator for Screen Reality Games.  ThunderFunk paints YouTube red with his World of Tanks shenanigans every Tuesday and Wednesday. Go have a look!

Streamer of the Month

Keep your eyes out for EmbryonicJourney, who will be our Streamer of the Month for October. Perhaps not quite as well-known as other streamers, we think this Swedish chap is onto something good. Check him out and make your own mind up! 

'Heavy Metal!' Screenshot Contest

We asked for the best screenshots of heavy tanks and you provided them! Take a look at these winning and truly heavy shots.


Design a Medal or Achievement

With this contest we attempted to try something new! We asked you to design either a medal or achievement icon for World of Tanks. Let’s see what you came up with!



'Serene Coast' Screenshot Contest

With the release of an updated version of the “Serene Coast” map, we were curious about what kind of cool screenshots you could take to highlight how awesome this map looks. Take a look at the winning entries!


Caption Contest

Check out the winners of our most recent Caption Contest. What caption would you have written to match this photo? Check out the forum thread to see the winning captions.

Fan Art

Talented community artists continue to submit great World of Tanks fan art. Check below for some of the great submissions we received throughout September.

If you have any interesting artwork, projects, comics or videos to share, feel free to post it in this forum section. We’re always on the lookout for new stuff!

Player Zavos has created a really cool custom skin for the vk 30.03 (M).  Remember this skin is only visible to you and doesn’t increase your camo factor! (But it does make you look cool!)

 Meanwhile, Madison_ from one of the Reddit clans has created this awesome image of a Tog II.


Other Community Activities

Community Contributor Highflyer15 recently held a ramming contest to celebrate his first 25,000 subscribers on YouTube. Check out his awesome video here!

Along with the various contests we run on World of Tanks, we also run contests on the World of Warplanes forums that allow you the chance to win some in-game gold for your World of Tanks accounts.  Check out our Warplanes contest forum here! 


Thanks to all our players and contributors for their awesome work this past month. We look forward to sharing more of what’s happening in our community with you in the next spotlight!

Now that the holiday season has ended, it’s time to go through all the postcards sent by our families, relatives... and by our players!




This month featured the most hilarious contest for the French community team, the Team Caricature Contest. We had a lot of success, with players really trying to exaggerate every aspect of our facial expressions in drawings. There were 2 categories: individual and group. We want to share with you the results along with some off-topic pictures that caught our attention.




The players had to finish a painting that a Community team member started. The results were awesome pieces of art, and it was very hard for us to pick out the winners of the “Call Me Van Gogh” contest!




The Lucky Eight was a special event for ace tankers. The goal was to win the battle while causing the highest possible damage to the enemy.



Players have to add a screenshot with light tank that was destroyed in battle. The best images were the winners!




This is the second time we have run the Capture contest in the Turkish Community, and they love it! Players share a photo with a quote on it that is related to World of Tanks. The photos and quotations that the Turkish players have shared with us have once again made us laugh a lot!




Did you see any of your creations here? Remember that your entry could be selected for the next Community Spotlight if you participate in the contests on the forums!
