Welcome to the Missile Exercise, warriors!
We prepared two new vehicles especially for you. The first vehicle is a modification of the T49 equipped with antitank guided missiles. Yes, you read that right: GUIDED missiles! The second one is the brand-new Tier IX KpfPz 70 tank. It's not a toy. Therefore, we'll start with checking your gunnery skills and only then will we entrust the best commanders with the KpfPz 70. As they say "Train as you fight!"
The game event will take place from August 23 to September 20 and consist of several parts. During the Missile Exercise you will have an opportunity to win containers and the main reward: the enriched Tier IX KpfPz 70 tank. We recommend that you read this article to the end in order to get all the necessary information, participate in all missions, and get as many rewards as you can!
The Leaderboard and Combat Sigils
Every day, from August 23, 12:00 am (GMT), to September 6, 12:00 am (GMT), you will receive Combat Sigils for the first five battles that you win on Tier V to X vehicles in random, rating, or tournament battles:
- The more damage you deal, the more Combat Sigils you get.
- Dealing one point of damage on a Tier X vehicle will bring you one Combat Sigil.
- Since the average damage dealt by Tier V to IX vehicles is lower, we will use multiplying factors. These factors will help decrease the gap between players using high-tier vehicles and those who don't have them. Anyway, a larger number of Combat Sigils can be more easily gained on Tier X vehicles.
- Premium Account and boosters won't affect the number of Combat Sigils.
After you collect 8,000 Combat Sigils, you'll get onto the leaderboard on our website and be able to compete for rewards. The data on the leaderboard will be updated every five minutes. If several players have an equal number of Combat Sigils, the player who earned them earlier will be on top.
Depending on their results, other participants who got onto the leaderboard will receive standard and special containers, which will bring them closer to the grand prize — the Tier IX KpfPz 70.
Awarding stages and Orders
From August 23, 12:00 am (GMT), to September 6, 12:00 am (GMT), you will receive Orders for completing missions. Completing missions on Tier V to X vehicles will bring you a larger number of Orders compared to Tier I to IV vehicles. Premium Account and boosters won't affect the number of Orders.
You need Orders to complete awarding stages of the game event. This time, the stages are not interrelated, and you can select a desired award: Gold, Free Experience, Spare Parts, various boosters, certificates for a slot, Premium Account, and standard or special containers.
You won't be able to receive Orders after September 6, 12:00 (GMT). The rest of the stages (except two stages in the middle) can only be completed using Gold.
You will temporarily receive a Tier VII vehicle with the unique game mechanics of the T49 ATM for completing the lower part of the middle stage.
In terms of its characteristics, the tank resembles the T49. The main difference is its gun. It has a longer loading time and fires missiles, which fly directly where you guide them due to the absence of dispersion. Additionally, the Commander of the T49 ATM can correct the trajectory of the missile. While in the air, the missile will follow your reticle that is always located in the center of the screen (don't mistake it for the aiming circle). It looks like this:
These mechanics allow you to fire from behind a hill or around a corner and hit the cabin of an inattentive tank destroyer from above. On the other hand, it your target is located within your visual range, you'll have to track it with your reticle in order to keep the missile along the desired route. As you can see, you'll need to get used to using such an unusual gun.
The T49 ATM is more difficult to master compared to other vehicles, so we recommend that you get it as early as possible and play as many battles as you can on this tank. It may well be that you won't get a second chance.
Containers and Charms for the KpfPz 70
You can get Standard and Special Containers during Missile Exercise. You can win them on the leaderboard, earn them for Orders, or purchase them in the Store.
Each Container contains random awards (Special Containers contain a larger amount of awards): Premium Tier III to V vehicles, Credits, Gold, boosters, or certificates for Premium Account.
In addition to basic awards, you will always find Charms for the KpfPz 70 in each Container:
- A Standard Container contains from 25 to 5,500 Charms. More frequent amounts are 25, 50, 75, and 150 Charms.
- A Special Container contains from 100 to 5,500 Charms. More frequent amounts are 100, 125, 150, and 250 Charms.
The maximum of 5,500 Charms in a single container has been chosen for a reason. That is the very number of Charms you need to collect to earn the enriched Tier IX KpfPz 70 tank with six pieces of unlocked equipment and a slot in the Garage. Therefore, all containers get you closer to the grand prize!
A 1960s joint project of US and German engineers, also known as the MBT-70. Due to disagreements between the parties, this vehicle was never put to mass production. Later the project was divided into two national programs.
In the game, the KpfPz 70 inherited the armor of US vehicles: a light hull and a robust turret that allows you to fire from cover exposing only your forehead. The vehicle has an average speed and boasts an effective power-to-weight ratio for a heavy tank. It's equipped with a 152-mm gun. The gun cannot boast a high rate of fire, but it's quite powerful: 560 points of damage in a single shot!
In terms of farming, the KpfPz 70 is not as effective in earning Credits as, for example, the Löwe. At the same time, this tank is not as costly as researchable Tier IX vehicles. The earning performance of the KpfPz 70 is similar to enriched Tier IX vehicles. It allows you to play comfortably, cover your expenses and even earn a little.
This tank comes with a slot in the Garage and unlocked Tier I and II equipment. If you win the KpfPz 70 in the leaderboard (for Combat Sigils), you'll also get the legendary Steel Cavalry camo. Those who earned the KpfPz 70 for Charms will be able to unlock the legendary camouflage for 2,100 before September 20.
See you in the Missile Exercise! We wish you successful battles and bountiful containers!
