Outside of prep for update 9.18, there’s not too much going on in the WoT department. However, the console team has released another monthly overview, this time for the month of May.
It’s mostly premium tanks. The charity packages are nice though.
“Vengance” T25 and “Huntsman” Centurion
Well, not ones to be topped by PCs attempt to beat players over the head with patriotism, WoT Console will see the release of the T25 Tier 8 premium with a new perma camo.
As well as a (presumably) Tier premium Centurion. This one advertised as part of the “heavy metal” line of premium tanks.
The Centurion seems a bit of a wasted opportunity. How cool would a Korean War or post-war European paint job have been? Especially with the otherwise semi-historically inspired “Heavy Metal” tanks.
American Dream- Earn Op
Full details haven’t been released yet, but a new Earn Op is coming up. This one will cover all tiers and feature several tiers of prizes. The two announced prizes so far are the M22 Locust and the M4A2E4 (with Ripper paintjob).
Hopefully WG is learning their lessons from previous earn ops and handing out prizes based on player skill, rather than handing out otherwise pricey Tier 8 premiums to everyone. The operation is mentioned as covering all nations and Tiers 3-10, so hopefully the usual player fatigue of seeing a single nation or tank flooding MM for two weeks can be avoided.
Military Appreciation Month & Valor Charity Event
Through the month, WG will also be holding a couple of charity events.
First off is a new “Valor” emblem, net proceeds of which will go to the National Military Family Association. For more info on them, click here.
As well as that, to celebrate VE and Memorial Day, WG is offering the following emblems and inscriptions, as well as 3x XP on first victories of the day:
Not for any particular event, the following premiums will be on sale during the month:
Late in the month we’re also getting a few new desert unit emblems. These will be available through June as well.
