You are part of a new era of Metal, Power, and Glory!

Winter Games gets a new look in 2020! Thanks to a rearranged phase system, 2020 will become more interesting and practical in every game you play!

Before you head out to kick ass, check out the new adjustments:

  • Winter Games (and the following campaigns in 2020) will now have a single 3-month phase
  • Each phase will have 100 Stages
  • Moving from Stage 2 to Stage 3 will take the same amount of points as moving from Stage 98 to Stage 99
  • Once you complete ALL the Winter Games 2020 Stages, you will receive the T-34 Shielded for FREE
  • The T-34 Shielded will become available at a discount after you finish Stage 35 (for 35% off) and Stage 70 (for 70% off)

Each Season Game will have its own exclusive reward Tank. Each vehicle comes with its own unique set of characteristics and specialties that you don’t want to miss. So whatever you do, keep playing!

Note: Choose wisely when to acquire your T-34 Shielded – If you buy it early at a discount, you WILL NOT be able to use later discounts or receive the tank for free once you complete Winter Games 2020.

Earning rewards is still as straightforward as ever. Simply tackle Weekly Ops to earn points and awesome rewards, including Gold, Silver, Free XP, XP and Silver Boosts, Consumables, and a FREE (or massively discounted) T-34 Shielded. If you have a Premium Account, certain steps will even grant you additional bonus rewards! After you finish all the Winter Games Stages you will get extra XP on every battle until the end of the phase.

For more information, check out the Winter Games 2020 rewards chart!

You need to reach Tier 5 with a regular tank, or have at least 200 Multiplayer battles played on your account, in order to access the Winter Ops. All Ops will be activated for you when they become available, so there’s no need to select them—just roll out and battle.

Weekly Ops System

In the first month of each season, you will have 1 random, rotating weekly Op to be completed within each week. In this case, a World of Tanks: Mercenaries “week” begins after our regular Tuesday maintenance. Each month will add an additional weekly Op for you to complete each week. (For example: In Month 3 you will get 3 Ops each week.)

If you complete an Op within the week, you will receive a new random weekly Op in the following week. (Because of the random roll it could even be the same one you had before.) If you do not manage to complete an Op within the week, you will have to restart it in the next week. This applies for each separate weekly Op, so if you have more than one weekly Op you will only reroll the ones that you have completed.

Good luck, Commander.
