Champion Best Friends' Villages and Bag Cool Rewards With Festive Community Activities



Holiday Ops 2023 is alive and well, and we hope you're getting into the festive spirit with Arnie and Milla. Well, we're happy to announce that the festivities certainly don't end there!

On top of the chance to bag extra resources and unique customizations by visiting your Best Friends' Villages, we're also running fun community activities for stunning rewards!

Join our Santa's Helpers, the Best Contributor Village Competition, the Discord "Bro-wards" Activity, and our epic cumulative Big Premium Giveaway for a chance to win cool in-game goodies! If you take part in all activities and enter our Big Premium Giveaway raffle, ALL Premium vehicles could be yours!

Each activity is available for both EU and NA players.

All personal data will be used for crediting purposes and will be deleted 30 days after the end of the activities.

Best Friends' Villages and the Discord "Bro-wards" Activity

Once Holiday Ops 2023 starts on December 1 at 07:00 CET (UTC+1), you can visit your Best Friends' Villages to grab extra resources and unique customizations, including the Forward to Childhood 2D style!

How It Works

Assign the status of "Best Friend" to up to two players from your friend list, visit their festive Villages, and collect extra resources once a day to boost your progress in the event.

Every time you collect resources in your Best Friend's Villages, you add one point to a special counter. After earning a certain number of these points, you will have the opportunity to get the following unique friendship-themed customizations:

  • A set of 6 cool inscriptions (6 points required)
  • A set of 6 stunning decals (12 points required)
  • An amazing 2D style featuring unique Marks of Excellence (24 points required)

Collecting resources in your Best Friends' Villages does not affect the number of resources that they themselves will gather. You don't take anything from them, so don’t worry—you just get additional resources for free!

Forward to Childhood 2D Style

Discord "Bro-wards" Activity

Running from December 3, 2022, at 00:00 CET through January 4, 2023, at 00:00 CET (UTC+1)

You can also share a screenshot of one of your Best Friends' Villages via the #ho23-friendsvillage Discord channel for a chance to win three days of WoT Premium Account for you and a friend. Type your friend's in-game nickname and the time you visited their Village with a screenshot of their decorated Garage—that's it!

You must set your language role to take part. The time doesn't need to be exact. Within the nearest 5–10 minutes is great, and one post will count as one entry.

Every week, our social media team will pick the best four screenshots and share them on our social media channels. The draws will fall on December 11, 19, and 28, 2022, and January 4, 2023. The images will then be ranked by the number of reactions.​
