A bunch of Italian medium tanks are all busy warming up their engines to leave the assembly line. But in the meantime, we’re bringing you a little something special to get battle ready: the Italian Challenge. And it’s totally not a way to just have some fun before the new line rolls out. Promise.
Event Start: April 13, 12:00 PT | 14:00 CT | 15:00 ET
Event End: April 27, 12:00 PT | 14:00 CT | 15:00 ET
The Italian Challenge will twist the Random Battles experience into a frantic and furious hunt for a host of rewards and in-game valuables. From Credits, Personal Reserves, and unique camo through to the mightly Progetto M35 Mod 46 that features the all-new autoreloader mechanic.
Hop on board to battle your way over 10 fierce stages and reap in-game rewards. Make it to the finish line to earn the first Italian tank and gear up for a new nation!
How It Works
The Italian Challenge includes 10 consecutive stages to complete. To make the event more versatile and fun, we’re introducing two ways to earn rewards.
What’s on the Line
Firstly, the Progetto M35 mod 46 Premium tank is the main prize, and this is the first time ever a Tier VIII vehicle has been both a trophy and a a tank that launches a new nation. Secondly, tankers will get a chance to earn it for free. It’s a challenging objective that will require the best of your abilities, but the result is more than worth it.
Close-Up on the Autoreloader Mechanic
As opposed to a traditional autoloader that lets you jump into Rambo mode before turning into a ninja while your magazine reloads, the autoreloader is trickier. Right after you fire your first shell, the magazine instantly starts loading a fresh one. Here’s where you have the freedom to choose whether to wait for reloading to complete, or spit out your remaining rounds. If you go the classic autoloader route, every successive shell will gradually take more and more time to load.
The new mechanic potentially gives you complete freedom of choice in regards to your attacking arsenal, but it also requires you to learn some new tricks and gain new sets of reflexes that will help you seamlessly switch between the two modes at the crucial moment.#
Hold off on unleashing all your ammo: you might need that extra shell in a few seconds.
But wait, there’s more to the Italian Challenge than its main trophy. As you work your way to get your hands on it, you’ll be earning a whole bunch of other valuable items!
The Fast Lane
If you’re anxious to try out the new experience immediately, you can jump to the Premium Shop and purchase the whole bundle featuring all the rewards for each event battle mission and the Progetto.
If you decide to purchase the bundle, completing stages beforehand will discount the final price — 10% off for each stage completed. For example, completing 7 out of 10 stages will knock 70% off the price.
Purchasing the bundle gives you the full pack of rewards and automatically checks all event battle missions as completed. So you won’t be able to access them once you have the bundle.
