5th Anniversary contest – Ultimate High Five

To celebrate our 5th year anniversary, we’re running an in-game contest, which players may find familiar if they’ve taken part in a previous “Art of War” event. Putting a new spin on the vehicles involved, we want to see which players can accomplish the highest of high fives possible!

Duration: From 12th April at 00:00 CEST until 26th April at 23:59 CEST (UTC+2).

Goal: Earn the highest amount of base XP possible in a single battle while playing a regular Tier V tank


  • You enter the contest simply by playing a battle (results will be drawn straight from the server)
  • Earn the highest amount of base XP possible in a single battle. You can try this as many times as you like but only your highest effort will be considered for the competition
  • In cases where two or more players manage to get the same amount of XP, damage inflicted in that battle will be used to determine the order of winners
  • There are 5 categories for this competition (Light Tanks, Medium Tanks, Heavy Tanks, Tank Destroyers and SPGs) and each category is treated as its own separate contest. While you can participate in all five categories, you can only be awarded for one of them. The highest place taken in a particular group defines your reward
  • Any nation is allowed
  • Must be using a regular vehicle (e.g. Premium Tanks can’t be used in this contest)




  • You must be playing a Tier V regular vehicle
  • Only base XP counts (bonuses for first victory of the day, Premium Account and Premium Tanks will not be added)
  • Only random battles will count. No Clan Wars, Company battles, Stronghold battles or test server matches will be included
  • No platoons are allowed. Any players that obtains a high score while being in a platoon will not be included
  • Replays must be enabled for the two following reasons:
    • In the case of any scores that drastically stand out from the rest, to help avoid any controversy we may ask players to submit a replay to Wargaming to verify their match from their point of view. This will also help avoid any accusations from the community regarding how any exceptional scores were obtained. Please note that if we request a replay to validate your score/match performance and you are not able to provide this, your score will not count and the prize will go to the next highest scoring player
    • We would like to make a video montage of the top scores from each category as we’re sure these will be some amazing matches
  • To enable replays on your account, please follow the guide found on our support page found here



The prizes for each category are the same, though you can only win once during the entire contest. The highest place taken in a particular category defines your award.

In total there will be 555 winners (111 winners in each category), which means 5 lucky players will get to go to Tankfest with Wargaming!

If you win in a category with a premium tank that you already own, you will be rewarded with the value of the tank in credits instead.


Special Bonus prize

As a special bonus, any player who earns a Top Gun medal in a Tier V tank during this event will be entered into a special prize draw where 150 players will win a Top Gun Challenge coin!





The final results of the contest will be announced within 2 weeks, with a new portal article. Every couple of days, however, we will have a Leaderboard showing the top 25 for each class, to give players a rough idea of where they stand. Note that the Leaderboard is not a final list of winners - this will come in a separate announcement once the contest is finished.
