Contest: 100 Years of Tanks Anniversary!

As the 32 working Mark I tanks lined up for the attack scheduled for the 15th of September, 1916, the crews were under mounting pressure. The British Expeditionary Force’s commander-in-chief, Sir Douglas Haig, had high hopes for the new weapon to finally break the stalemate of the Western Front. However, this new weapon, this ungainly mechanical contraption, which someone decided to name a tank to ward off the enemy intelligence, was still in its infancy. It was yet to be tested in combat, and on top of that, had issues even as it crawled towards the front – 17 of these steel beasts had broken down en route.

But there was no time for hesitation. Signal flags were waved, engines were brought to life, and thick clouds of smoke were belched by the machines. It was time to start the attack.

It was time to change the face of war forever…

For the 100 Years of Tanks anniversary, we have prepared a special competition. Sign up and play at least 100 battles from 19 September through 2 October. We will then take the best 100 base XP scores you achieved to calculate your average. Amazing prizes await!
