We also have news concerning the final Frontline episode. It will take place between 18 November at 06:00 CET and 25 November at 03:00 CET (UTC+1).
The drums of war are beating loudly, Commanders!
The ninth episode of Frontline brings you closer to exclusive reward tanks, including the unique AE Phase I. If you haven’t grabbed other reward vehicles yet, now is the best time to jump back in and make the most of the penultimate Frontline episode!
Just like in the last two episodes, you will have the opportunity to boost your progress thanks to Personal Reserves. You can get a maximum of 20 Reserves—ten for completing special combat missions a week before the start of the episode, and ten available in the in-game shop for gold. The cost of one Reserve in the shop remains at 250 gold. Fight on the Frontline, use Personal Reserves, and get your rewards faster!
The AE Phase I: This Predator Is Worth Sweating Over!
In the previous episode, only the most skilled commanders could get this Frontline-exclusive beast. This time, it will be available to a wider range of players, so don’t miss your chance to park this special Tier IX American heavy tank with four segmented tracks in your Garage!
Featuring a free built-in Large Repair Kit consumable, the AE Phase I offers its own level of tactical versatility. It snipes well, brawls decently, and can jump into a 1v1 fight and come out on top. Its gun packs a serious punch, complemented by a good rate of fire. Remember: having hefty armor doesn’t mean the AE Phase I is suited to frontal assaults, so you’ll still have to choose your moments for doing damage, staying between the first and the second lines of attack.
The fourth Common Test for Update 1.6.1 is available now, which means you can storm into battle right away to check out all the new update features and improvements! There’s plenty to look out for: Multinational Vehicles, New Styles, Ranked Battles tweaks, and more!
List of Changes CT4
Trade-In (available starting Tuesday, October 1, 2019)
Remember Pearl River? Indeed, it’s one of the older maps in World of Tanks. We removed it from the game a couple of years ago because it was too linear and maze-y. Since then we continuously received requests from many of you to bring it back into Random Battles. Now, we are happy to have a prototype ready for testing, let’s see what do you think about the map.
The following changes have been introduced to the map:
• The flanks for the medium tanks were reworked as they were, as said above, too linear and maze-y. That was one of the main points for criticism.
• A safe passage has been added for the team starting from the lower base. Now it roughly corresponds to the upper base passage. Before, there were two approaches from the upper base, but only one from the lower base.
The sound of steps slushing in the snow welcome players to Kraftwerk. At first, single footsteps can be heard, but as the piece picks up, more and more boots are heard. Gradually, the approaching enemy can be heard.
As the soundtrack evolves, the steps become more brisk and closer together until the opposing forces are charging at one another as war cries are screamed. The battle goes quiet, until only the wisps of the wind can be heard. Their battle is over; yours is just beginning.
You have surely heard of monday’s article about double-barreled vehicles we plan on adding to World of Tanks soon? You’ve heard it right: today, we’re testing a dummy tank with two guns.
We are especially interested in the gameplay concept, not so much in the dummy vehicle itself. None of this vehicle’s characteristics should be taken seriously. It will give all of you (and us) an insight into what a double-barreled tank could look and play like in World of Tanks.
So, let’s break the ice and take a look at the first-ever vehicle with two guns as well as its stats.
We’re pleased to announce that from September 18 through October 7, two amusing mini-games with instantly recognizable mechanics will be available in World of Tanks. These legendary arcade games are probably familiar to you from your childhood under different names, and don’t need too much of an introduction. Launch your game client to enjoy:
The Catcher. You need to catch items falling on you from four inclined surfaces. Collecting these items brings you a certain amount of points necessary for obtaining achievements and passing stages.
Held in Minsk, Belarus—the birthplace of World of Tanks—Wargaming Fest: Tanker Day is the biggest family-friendly video game festival in Europe, bringing together Wargaming fans from all over the world.

Tank Festival 2020
The current WG Fest is held under the banner of the Tank Festival. We tried hard to surprise you and prepared an entire series of festival events with new mechanics. We want to make Tank Festival a great and long-standing tradition for years to come, since it’s such a joyful occasion. After all, next year marks the 10th anniversary of World of Tanks! A nice round number and a landmark event for all of us.
Of course, you should expect new and exciting treats from us. And you’ll have them, as next year we plan to launch Tank Festival 2020, with even more rewards and special events. Keep your eyes peeled for more details closer to the date!
The Offspring in Your Garage
This year’s WG Fest: Tanker Day is headlined by The Offspring, the legends of the California punk rock scene. Can’t make it to the live show? We’ve got you covered! Starting from September 18, we’ll assemble a virtual stage right in the game Garage, where the band will be performing some of their hottest hits. World of Tanks has never seen anything like it!
And there’s more to it. The Offspring can stay in your Garage for good—stay tuned for more details.
