A Well-Deserved Reward – Reveal

Ten years ago, Wargaming was a small development studio dreaming of releasing a fantasy MMORPG. Then, in December 2008, a completely different idea shot up, replacing orcs and elves with tracks and guns. That’s when World of Tanks was born.

To mark the event, every tanker who registered by December 31st, 2017, will receive a gift from our team, and each reward will be based on your time in World of Tanks. You can check which gift you are entitled to in the “Achievement” tab in-game. It will be based on the year of registration, not the specific date.

So, for example, if you registered on December 31st, 2013, you would get the same rewards as someone who registered on January 1st, 2013.

It took a lot of thought on how to reward everyone and we realized that finding a perfect system would prove impossible. So, we have decided to choose a system that would be the best for the majority of players.

You will be able to grab your rewards from 28 November 2018 until December 2019.

  • 1 Year of Service
  • 2-3 Years of Service
  • 4-5 Years of Service
  • 6+ Years of Service
  • Alpha and Beta Testers

Have you seen things people won’t believe? Attacking tanks hanging off ledges without falling? The mountain gorge blocked on Lakeville? Dominating over enemies in the mighty KV, making them light up with the VK 28.01 and the T-50-2? Sure you have experienced all of this, for you’re a World of Tanks veteran: a rare witness to the dawn of the game and its key milestones.

  • Service medal representing your years in-game
  • Service emblem representing your years in-game
  • 5,000 Bonds
  • 5,000,000 Credits
  • T-50-2, Tier VI Soviet light tank
  • A special style for the T-50-2

For those of you that remember the story of the T-50-2, the legend continues. It’s just a little different now…

We hope to continue this tradition next year and make it even better. Enjoy your rewards, you deserve them!

Here’s a table for the confused 🙂

  1. That’s cool but my account was created the 14 february 2015 (so 3 years and 10 months)
    Will I have the T-50-2 ??

    1. Exactly the same as my situation, two months short of the crucial 4-year cutoff.

      The idea’s not bad in principle, but the drop in rewards between 4 years and 3 years is like going off a damn cliff. They could have at least included, say, a coupon to buy the tank at 50% off to those of us in the 3 year bracket.

      Gonna be a lot of #feelsbadman over that cutoff. Wonder what they’re saying over on the Russian forums?

    2. Yes you will get the T-50-2 IF you claim your rewards in 14 of February 2019 and this is possible because WG is letting players claim their rewards from 28 of November 2018 until December 2019. So don’t worry if you need a few more months for the 4th year!

      1. Don’t think it works like that. This goes by registration date, not claim date. It’s right there in the chart in the article.

    1. That would be March 2015? So no dice. As they go by year, not date and month. 2015 be it Jan or Des still falls under the same group. Dec 31 2014 is the last date for a T-50-2 if I got that right.

  2. “You can check which gift you are entitled to in the “Achievement” tab in-game.”

    Where? I’ve looked just about everywhere in-game and can’t find an achievement tab anywhere…

  3. My first battle was on 10. Jan. 2013. so i missed the 6 six years by 10 days.
    But at least i get a T-50-2 too 🙂

    1. don’t forget about bonds. don’t you like bonds? then, if you don’t like bonds, can you give them to me? 😛

  4. April 2011. A free tank that I know will be fun and 5 mil credits is more than welcome. Great gift!

  5. Cant believe its been 5 years since I rage…no play this bloody tank game. Its been a long journey, and its nice of WG to share their celebration with us veterans.

    As a sidenote, it also remind me of how far TAP had came. Still remember SS (as much as depises whatche does with AW) suddenly left FTR, and TAP (and Stautus report) emerged as its replacememt. Give you guys a well deserved gift too to all the OG TAP writers (Seb and co.) 😉

    1. That is an amazing comment, especially coming from an old FTR reader which knows how high the bar was set by SS. Made my day. I will try to improve in the future.

      1. Thank you for your hard work seb, and dedication to this website its one of the few wot’s related websites i check for news in general about the game.


  6. Incredible….

    So, 3 years and 28000 battle no tanks….

    5 years and stop gaming and 4000 battle…. have tank….

    Good work WG another Genius gift.

    Son and bastard………. Always……..

  7. Yay, thanks for nothing wg…
    After the announcement video where you specifically said “a gift for everyone” and implied we’d all get a tank by showing it in the same video it turns out the gift is not for everyone. GJ community team, really liking this one.

  8. Thanks for the info.. I have a question though.. I registered on 2012 and was grouped as a Beta Tester on the forum.. So which is it?? Does the forum count?

    1. The in-game achievments tab show my account was created on April 12, 2011, but that is a bug that all alpha and beta testers experience.
      Despite having our accounts since 2009/2010, when the game launched, it somehow bugged the UI to show all previously created accounts as those were created in April. 2011.
      I’m worried because I was a beta tester but don’t know if I will get a badge or not.

  9. My account 6/5/2013 too bad i have quit WOT after 15k battles XD im thinking just to re-dl it just to get the rewards and increasse account value if im gonna sell it some day XD
