Back 2 Your Roots: Himmelsdorf Drift

Hello Commanders!

It's time to revisit the debris-filled streets of the famous World of Tanks urban maps. This Fun Cup will take you on a series of fast-paced low-tier battle-races across the cities of Ensk, Ruinberg and Himmelsdorf.

You can pick any tank of Tier II.  All you need to do is find some friends in order to field a team of 10 players and make sure your team is registered before the closing date. Size doesn't matter here - it's all about strategy and tactics, so prepare for some high-octane action and shift straight into top gear!

The top 16 teams will receive a gold prize and the top four will win the Fun Cup quarter of the coveted “EU All Star” medal. Stay tuned to all the fun cup news – including updates, team news and team recruitment on the official Fun Cup forum!
