Special: Tank Racing

Commanders,

We have promised you something exciting to come at the end of the month and it’s time for us to deliver. You will now be able to take control of a special Chaffee tank and engage in some fast-paced racing action on the map Port, adapted for this specific purpose!

Here’s a handy summary of the rules and facts about the game mode:

  • The battle format is 3 vs 3
  • Players can form platoons of 3 or join in random teams
  • The racing will take place on the specially modified Port map
  • Every player who logs in to the game on 29 September will receive a special version of the M24 Chaffee tank, as well as a garage slot.
  • To win a race, you can either beat the opposing team in rushing to the base and capturing it, or by using intersections and shortcuts to ambush and destroy all enemy vehicles.
  • Both the tank and the garage slot will disappear once the event is over, but the crew, ammo and any piece of equipment you might have installed will be placed in your barracks and depot respectively.
  • The Chaffee SPORT will have the elite status from the start, so you can use all XP earned in Tank Racing to train the crew at an accelerated rate
  • Any surplus XP allocated on the tank at the time of the event’s closure will be transferred to the tier I American light tank, the T1.
  • The Chaffee SPORT tank can be used in Tank Racing mode only
  • Playing the Tank Racing game mode can grant you a unique medal: Racer 2014

After disabling Tank Tally mode, all experience earned on M24 Chaffee SPORT will be transferred on the tank T1 Cunningham. If you don’t have the tank, the experience will be attached to it until you get it again. The crew of the M24 ​​Chaffee SPORT will be moved to the barracks and automatically retrained for standard M24 Chaffee upon the release of Update 9.4.
