Where & When to Catch gamescom Twitch Drops

Twitch Drops available from August 28 at 15:00 CEST through August 31 at 01:00 CEST (UTC+2)

On our official English and German Twitch channels, as well as some content creators listed below.

The initial test during Tankfest Online was a great success, which is why we are bringing it back and even expanding the feature. Earlier this month, we announced the latest Brawl Club event and the content creators that are participating in it. The battle for superiority in Polish medium tanks will see its final stretch over three days during gamescom 2020. In order to give the club members a final push, and to give you an even bigger chance to win great rewards, Twitch Drops will be enabled not only for our Official Twitch Channels but also for the channels of the content creators!

Unsure if a streamer has Twitch Drops enabled? Look out for the message "enabled" below their stream.

We will provide further details and schedules about the various streams closer to the event, but we can already tell you that great tank action, new surprises, and much more awaits.

So, if you haven't already done it, make sure to connect your Twitch and Wargaming accounts for a chance to receive awesome rewards.

What Will Be Dropped?

Important: Each Drop is limited to one per account! You are guaranteed to receive the regular Drops (1, 2 and 3), the longer you watch the streams. You will receive a Twitch Notification after a Drop is added to your account. All the Drops, except Drop 1, can be found in-game, but delivery is not instant and can take some time to be completed. If you are already logged into the game, make sure to log out and back in.

Regular Drop 1: World of Tanks gamescom 2020 T-Shirt

It has become a beloved tradition that we release a special World of Tanks t-shirt exclusive to gamescom. While we are not able to throw them out into the crowd this year, we still found a way to give them away, thanks to the support of the Wargaming Store.

If you want to be certain to get one, it is available for purchase at the Wargaming Store.

To The Wargaming Store

Join any of the streams for more than 30 minutes to be automatically entered into a special raffle for a chance to win the shirt!

Stocks are limited to 2,020 t-shirts, so in order to make it as fair as possible, everybody who watches the stream for 30 minutes or more has the same chance to snap one up. You will receive a special Twitch notification to confirm your entry into the raffle. This does not mean that you have won a t-shirt. We will draw the lucky winners after the gamescom 2020 event. You will receive an e-mail with further details on how to claim your reward via the Wargaming Store. Delivery will be free and the usual Wargaming Store restrictions apply!

Important: Make sure to allow contacts via email or messenger in your player profile, to receive the message with further details on how to claim your t-shirt in case you win!

Regular Drop 2 & 3: Styles

Would you like to give your favorite tanks a fresh coat of paint or adjust them to your playstyle with new equipment?

Guaranteed Drops. The longer you watch, the greater the reward:

  • the gamescom 2018 style and 10 Chocolate!
  • the exclusive Waitangi Day style!

Epic Drop

Just like last time, the luckiest ones among our viewers will be treated to a very special Drop! This time, you have the chance to take the very rare VIII Schwarzpanzer 58 home*!

Limited to one per account. If you receive a tank that you already own, you will be compensated in credits.

Keep an eye on the portal for further details about World of Tanks and gamescom 2020, and make sure to catch some Drops from August 28 through 30.


More Loot Incoming!

Apart from Twitch Drops, there will be a whole heap of physical prizes to be won through GLEAM giveaways. Such prizes include Steelseries headsets, Cobi goodies, Displate posters, AmazonPay loot, Intel CPUs, and finally some Alienware gaming PCs.

Further details on how to enter will be released on the Portal closer to the start of gamescom 2020 and, of course, live on the Official WoT Twitch channels during the event.
