January 4, 2022

Click below or read on to see WoT’s happening this week:


NEW COLD WAR TANKS: BRITISH LIGHTS AND TANK DESTROYERS

You’ve seen the new medium and heavy tanks in the first wave of British vehicles for Cold War mode. Now, the second wave is about to come crashing down with the arrival of British light tanks and tank destroyers!

Get a first glimpse of these vehicles and read up on their rich history in this article.


CHALLENGES AND EVENTS

Paladin Challenge

From
4 JAN
11:01UTC Time
Until
1 FEB
9:59UTC Time

We brought you a challenge to earn the resolute British Tier VIII Paladin Caernarvon Action X Heavy Tank at the beginning of 2021.

We’re giving you another chance to claim this beast now… but this time, the rules have changed!

The 2022 Paladin Challenge will be spread across all four weeks in January. Each week, you’ll be presented with a series of three simple goals. Complete all three to earn in-game rewards plus a 35% discount on the Paladin.

If you complete three out of four weeks of the Paladin Challenge, you’ll receive the tank for FREE! (If you already own the Paladin, you’ll receive its value in Silver—4,200,000 Silver—instead.) You don’t have to complete them consecutively; completing any three weeks of the Challenge will do.

For the noblest of warriors among you who complete all four weeks of the Challenge, there’s an extra reward: an additional ten x2 Vehicle XP Boosters and ten x4 Commander XP Booster at the end of it all.

Week 1 of the Paladin Challenge begins TODAY. Your quest lies before you!
