TANKBOWL 2018: USA vs. USSR

11 jan

"Tryouts" and "Team Bonus" Ops | 2018 Team Captains & Bundles | Team USA & Team USSR Bundles 

As football season heats up, so does World of Tanks! TANKBOWL is back and pits two of the toughest nations against one another: USA vs. USSR. Who will win? It's up to you! Tryout for a team, then clobber the opposition in battle!

TANKBOWL 2018 also introduces two epic hero tanks as Captains for Team USA and Team USSR: Patriot T26E5 and Object 252U Defender! In addition, get uber mega bundles for both teams at up to 45% off!

Don't Miss Tryouts!

To participate, you'll first need to complete "Tryouts!" Earn points towards the "Tryouts" Ops by being the top XP earners on your team while commanding either American or Soviet vehicles (tier III+). Once you've completed "Tryouts" for one of the teams (USA or USSR), that's the team you'll be fighting for in the main event!

Plus, if you get through "Tryouts" early, you'll receive a special "Team Bonus" of extra XP and Silver for every victory while commanding vehicles (also tier III+) of your team's nation! 

Then on February 1, the TANKBOWL four-day main event will begin! And the winning nation's players will receive the Champion M4 Sherman! The prize tank's nation depends on which nation wins.


*Score at least one completion to earn the “Participation USA” or “Participation USSR” medal to qualify for your team’s rewards.
**Team score is determined by the rate of completions by players who have scored at least one completion for their team.

2018 Team Captains


Every great team needs a strong leader, and 2018's team captains are just about as tough as they come! These two Hero tanks are tried and true to their nation, and won't stop pushing until the very end. Get your team's captain to lead the charge in TANKBOWL, or get both to dominate the battlefield from here on out. 

Patriot T26E5

A true American patriot, the T26E5 can pull off some impressive flanks for a heavy tank. And with its flexible gun and tough turret armor, peek over hills and decimate enemies from near or far.

This formidable heavy tank is real tough for enemies to take out!

Object 252U Defender

True to its name, the Defender holds on until the very end! Dominate battles with sheer power and muscle, as you point yourself directly into incoming fire and deflect nearly anything foes throw at your heavily sloped armor.

Get up close and personal, and rip enemy HP to shreds.
