New Event: Rampage

The Rampage event has ended. All remaining rental tanks will be removed once their rent time is due. Thank you for participating.

Commanders,

The Rampage event will be available with the 9.10 update. The battles will be held in two of the already known formats: Domination and Steel Hunt.


In order to play the event battles, click Random Battle and choose Rampage from the list.

After that you’ll be able to choose your battle format.

 

Steel Hunt

Solo players and platoons will be able to take part in battles depending on the format. Standard battle duration is up to 15 minutes.

Battles will take place on two maps:

  • Ghost Town
  • Icebound

The primary objective is to score more Victory Points than the other players/platoons before the battle ends. The battle ends immediately if a player or platoon reaches the required number of Victory Points before time runs out.

In order to participate in battle, players need to choose from one to three tanks from Tier X. There are no limitations on vehicle classes. To start a battle, prepare all the vehicles and click on the “Battle!” button.

 

Key Features of the Game Event

The main characteristic of this new game event is the division of combat tasks between solo and platoon players:

  • Solo players: Their main goal is to deal damage, destroy enemies and capture flags, for which they earn Victory Points. Flags captured by solo players are absorbed and return to their spawn points. Solo players play individually, without allies.
  • Platoons: Players can also form three-player platoons. The main goal is to deliver flags to designated areas. Platoons represent stand-alone combat units - all other battle participants are enemies. Victory Points earned by platoon members are combined and applied to the overall battle score. Victory Points are awarded for delivering flags, dealing damage, and destroying enemies.

During battle, the following Combat Reserves will be available to players:

  • Artillery Strike
  • Airstrike

Combat Reserves will become available after performing effective actions in battle: dealing damage and destroying enemies. To use Combat Reserves, press 7 or 8 and choose the target point. When using Airstrike, you will also use the mouse to adjust the direction of the incoming aircraft, affecting the shape of the bombardment zone.

 

Battle Format of the Steel Hunt Event

Three battle formats will be available for players:

Mixed format: Four platoons and four solo players fight simultaneously. Battles are fought in Free-for-All format. A platoon of three players or a solo player is considered a combat unit. The first platoon or solo player to score 750 Victory Points, or the platoon or solo player with the most points when time runs out, wins. Victory Points are scored for dealing damage, destroying enemies, and delivering/absorbing flags. In the new version of the Steel Hunt, you will be able to tell which platoon a certain player is a part of.

Platoon format: Four platoons take part in the battle. Battles are fought in a Free-for-All format. The first platoon to score 750 Victory Points, or the platoon with the most points when time runs out, wins. Victory Points are earned for delivering flags, destroying enemies, and dealing damage. In the new version of Steel Hunt, you will be able to tell which platoon a certain player is a part of.

Single format: Twelve players fight in the battle. Battles are fought in a Deathmatch format. There are no flags - Victory Points are earned for dealing damage and destroying enemies. A player can win either by earning 200 points (ending the game) or by having the most points when the timer runs out.

Battle formats are picked randomly during team assembly.

 

Respawning

After your tank has been destroyed, you can rejoin the battle with one of your pre-chosen vehicles.

Respawns are unlimited, but when a tank is destroyed, its freeze time increases:

Domination

Each Domination battle will be fought between two teams of 10 or 15 players, depending on the map. The participation is available for solo players and platoons. Battle duration is up to 15 minutes.

The goal is to score more Victory Points than the enemy. The battle ends immediately if one team scores 150 Victory Points before time runs out. Victory points can be earned for taking captured flags to the special zones and for destroying enemy vehicles.

Battles will take place on the following maps:

  • Icebound (1 or 4 flags);
  • Ghost Town (1 or 4 flags);
  • Mines (1 flag);
  • Cliff (1 flag);
  • Karelia (4 flags)
  • Himmelsdorf (4 flags)

In order to take part in a battle, players need to choose from one to three owned tanks from Tiers VIII, IX or X. Moreover, among the chosen vehicles, there should be at least one tank from Tier X. To start a battle, prepare your vehicles and click on the “Battle!” button.

Respawning

After your tank has been destroyed you can choose the next one in the context menu and get back to the battle. You can’t go back into battle with a previously destroyed vehicle.

 

Mechanics

 

Capture the Flag

During the battle you can pick up and carry flags. A flag is picked up automatically when your vehicle touches it. Having picked up a flag, you need to take it to a dedicated deposit point. When you do, your team will be awarded a certain amount of points and the flag will return to its initial position automatically.

  • Flags will be placed in special zones on the map.
  • A tank that has picked up a flag will be marked on the map.
  • The location and movements of the flags will be marked on the mini-map by a special indicator.
  • Destroying a flag-carrying opponent’s vehicle will result in the flag being dropped. If that happens, all players in the battle will be able to pick it up from where it fell for a limited period of time. If nobody picks it up during that time, the flag will be reinstated to its original position automatically

 

Repair and Resupply zones

On the map there will be a certain number of zones to repair a vehicle and replenish ammunition. To activate these zones, a player must go inside of the yellow circle, marked on the mini-map with the correspondent icon and wait five seconds without receiving any damage and without leaving the circle. If a tank gets damaged, the timer is reset.

The zones have a cooldown of 1 minute. This means that if you have used it, you must wait 60 seconds before you can use it again. The cooldown is counted for each player individually, which means that several vehicles from both teams can use it at the same time.

Rental vehicles

In random battles, special battle missions will be available. To complete these missions, it will be possible to rent three vehicles, which can only be used in the Rampage event:

  • IS-7 (R)
  • T-62A (R)
  • AMX 50B (R)

Rented vehicles will be visually different in comparison with their analogues, though their characteristics will remain the same.

The rental period is 24 hours. Once the time is due, the vehicle will disappear and you will have to complete the mission again if you want to use it once more.

The first time a rental vehicle is credited, it will come with a crew with 100% Major Qualification. Once the rental time is due, the crew will disappear along with the tank. However, the next time you rent that tank, it will appear in your garage with the same crew and the same level of training as it had at the time of removal.

When the rental period is over, gained experience on these vehicles will be possible to convert into Free XP.

Once the event is over, the crews will be transferred to your barracks. If you don’t have enough bunks, the tankers will be placed in temporary ones that will disappear automatically when you dismiss or reassign the crew to a different vehicle. All Equipment and Consumables present on the vehicles at the end of the event will be demounted for free and placed in your depot.

 

Time for some tank rampage, Commanders!
