The USA kicks off its massive March Madness college basketball tournament this month, and so too is the madness spreading to World of Tanks! Prepare for a showdown of epic proportions, as eight nations fight it out every weekend in March for spoils, glory, and a shot at becoming the ultimate Tank Madness champion!

Every weekend, two different nations are pitted against each other in single elimination, team-based competition. Choose your nation, fight using vehicles tier III or higher from that nation, and help them score points to move up their bracket and ultimately win the weekend. The winning nations from each bracket will come together for a decisive clash at the end of March for our ‘Final IV’ championship, where the winning nation can claim their nation's Hero Flag tank as their prize.

Check back every Tuesday during Tank Madness for the latest results, and if you need to get a kickstart in rallying under the banner of your chosen nation, be sure to invest in our Tank Madness bundles to fill your Garage up with superstars from each competing nation!

Team USA have taken the meatball in the final bracket, and the Victory Lap Op is live now for American vehicles! Play before March 30 to earn bonus XP and Silver!

Tank Madness: How to Score


Head to the 'Ops' tab in the Garage to select your team for the weekend (bear in mind that you cannot change your team for that particular bracket after confirming). Compete by earning 'completions' based on XP earned in battle, which contribute towards your nation's overall performance for the showdown of the weekend.

Rack up XP in battles to earn points in your selected nation's vehicles (vehicles must be tier III or higher and from your nation of choice, with battles played in multiplayer only):

  • 5 points: Top XP earner on your team
  • 3 points: Top 2-3 XP earners on your team
  • 1 point: Top 4-5 XP earners on your team

Every 15 points scores a completion for your team and secures a random loot drop for you. Help your team earn the highest rate of completions (relative to the team populations) to win the weekend, and move a step closer to the ultimate showdown in the Final IV from March 30-April 2.

You will receive three days of Premium Account time 50,000 for following all of the following steps for each bracket (this reward can only be earned once in each bracket, and will not be available until the first bracket's winner has been announced):

  • Choosing your team
  • Earning a minimum of one completion for your team
  • Must be on the winning nation's team
  • Logging in to claim your reward before May 3

You'll also receive a Final IV medal specific to your chosen nation if your nation wins. It's possible to get a medal every weekend if you really know how to pick a winner! 

You must score a minimum of one completion to qualify for rewards. Be sure to login before May 3 to receive your Tank Madness rewards!

The team score is calculated as the average rate of completions by players who have scored at least one completion for their team.
