Gamescom 2020 is going digital, and we're following suit with great live streams and online activities during the weekend of August 28 through August 30! In addition to great entertainment, amazing tank action, and, of course, plenty of giveaways, we are also bringing back Twitch Drops!
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!
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.
Brawl Club Content Creators with Drops EnabledExpand
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.
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!
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!
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*!
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.
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.
