Brace yourselves! A festive storm is predicted to hit World of Tanks December 15, and won’t pass till January 15! We're calling this weather pattern “Holiday Ops 2018,” and it will turn your Garage into a snow-swept winter yard.
This 30-day period also indicates a high risk of extreme bonuses, severe gift storms, unprecedented Credit discounts on Tiers II–X, and more. We take your safety seriously here, so we've put together a few tips to help you (ahem) weather the storm and reap all of its benefits.
How to Get the Most Out of This Holiday Season
Take on special battle missions: The festive storm brings a whole set of weekly battle missions. Completing them will get you boxes full of decorations and in-game items (equipment, consumables, Credits, and more). The greater the challenge, the more valuable the rewards!
Decorate your yards: This year, you can decorate just about anything you see in the Garage's wintry yard: the house, lampposts, the tree (of course!)—even the snow can be crafted into a snowman. But why decorate in the first place? Along with the joy the process brings, decorations define your Festive Atmosphere level: the merrier your yard looks, the closer you get to Level 10, and the more valuable a crate you receive.
Level Festive Atmosphere: In true holiday spirit, we’re giving a Level 1 Festive Atmosphere crate with a gift tank to everyone who logs in to World of Tanks during Holiday Ops 2018. Work your way up from there and enjoy even more rewards! Ascending a level lands you a crate with all kinds of goodness: female Crew members, discounts on Tier II–X vehicles, consumables, and exclusive medals.
Build a collection: All the decorations you get are arranged in four design collections: Traditional Christmas, Modern Christmas, Soviet New Year, and Chinese New Year. Assembling a full collection nets you exclusive customization items, while making solid progress on any of the four sets will land you a boost in XP, Crew XP, and Credit earnings per battle. And no one said you could have just one collection. Challenge yourself with completing all four sets to get all the bonuses!
