WoT’s Happening This Week! August 2nd – August 8th

August 2, 2022

There’s no better way to celebrate Wargaming’s 24th anniversary than with the start of an event-filled month!

Click below or read on to find out WoT’s Happening:


THE INDEPENDENTS SEASON: LAST CHANCE

From
14 JUN
10:01UTC Time
Until
9 AUG
8:59UTC Time

A new season is just around the corner, so make sure you get everything you can from the current one! You’ve got one more week to claim season rewards from The Independents (and if you have a Season Pass or Ultimate Season Pass, you can use level buyouts to get those rewards).

Make your checklist. View the full rewards list and other season info in this article.


NEW PREMIUM VEHICLE: TYPE 63HG ‘90

From
2 AUG
10:01UTC Time
Until
23 AUG
8:59UTC Time

No, this isn’t a crossover with World of Warships. It’s the latest quick-moving scout to come to Cold War: the Type 63HG ’90 Escalation Era Eastern Alliance Light Tank.

Get the tank stats and the bundle details in its spotlight article.


TANKS REFORGED + ON-TRACK: SOVIET HEAVY WEAPONRY

Tanks Reforged takes a slightly different approach this time! The theme: updating the guns on several Soviet heavy tanks, with 122mm guns getting the most attention.

To take the greatest advantage of these changes, On-Track will focus on the Object 277 line. Get ready for Silver discounts and a +25% XP bonus on all the tanks from Tier III to Tier X!

See the details right here.


NEW CONTRACT: NEEDLE

From
2 AUG
10:01UTC Time
Until
23 AUG
8:59UTC Time
