The British Challenge Rolls Out

Subtitles in our supported languages are also available by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner.

The Brits are receiving reinforcements and it’s not the usual cup of tea and pudding, it’s a whole new beast. Bolstering the U.K. line is a new Tier VIII Premium heavy tank, the Caernarvon Action X, and it’s the grand prize for the British Challenge, adorned in a unique camo especially for the event.

The British Challenge’s concept will be familiar to those of you who took part in the Italian Challenge to earn the autoreloading Progetto M35 mod 46. However, this time, we heard your feedback and have made it a bit simpler, but the challenge still packs a sizeable punch. Earning this tank with your own two hands will certainly be a case for celebration.

This tank might have decent armor but it’s not enough to play from the front. Its gun really focuses on DPM, even though it’s average damage per shot is 230. While low for a Tier VIII heavy, the gun boasts great accuracy and combined with good depression, it certainly makes up for it. Just remember to play slightly behind the frontline and use the terrain to cover your hull! Plus, for those of you looking for a Crew trainer, you can’t go wrong with the Caernarvon Action X as it is perfect for leveling up those who look to take command of the Super Conqueror!

Running from 14 September at 10:00 to 28 September at 10:00, the British Challenge will have you clambering within Random Battles to earn yourself a heap of rewards and in-game valuables, including: Credits, Personal Reserves, unique Camo and the Caernarvon Action X!

How It Works

Just like the Italian Challenge, the chase for the Caernarvon involves completing 10 consecutive stages. And continuing like its predecessor, there are two ways to earn rewards, adding more versatility and fun.

  • Endurance race: Built around the amount of base XP points you earn, this approach encourages those who succeed by sheer persistence. Each stage will require you to gain a certain amount of base XP, rolling out in Tier VI and higher vehicles. Just remember: you’ll only have your result counted if you reach the Top 10 of your team’s list at the end of a battle—no matter whether your team wins or loses.
  • Ramp up the challenge: You can opt for alternative, far more complex tasks, while being limited to Tier X machines. Fulfilling these objectives will save you time, but you’ll have to give it your all.

Pro Tip: Both sets of tasks can be fulfilled simultaneously (given all conditions are met), so it doesn’t matter how exactly you end up progressing to the next stage.

Fast Track

If you find you’re running out of time to complete the missions, the tank will be available in the Premium Shop and you will be discounted 10% for each stage you’ve already completed. So, for example, completing 7 out of 10 stages will knock 70% off the price.

The Caernarvon Action X will remain on sale for two days after the end of the event — till September 30, 8 a.m (UTC), so even if you ran out of time, you’ll still be able to get your hands on this British Premium!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Purchasing the bundle gives you the full pack of rewards and automatically checks all event battle missions as completed. So you won’t be able to access them once you have the bundle.

Get ready to take on the challenge and earn the new Brit!
