World of Tanks – Tank Fair (Christmas calendar returns!)

Editor’s note: Edited the title from “Black market” to “Christmas calendar”, as the christmas event is more representative of the Tank Fair event. Sorry everyone.

Keep your eyes peeled and ears open, Commanders! The Festival Fair kicks off tomorrow, so get ready to get great deals and expand your tank collection with glorious vehicles at a reasonable price!

The Festival Fair features an exclusive 24-hour deal every day for 21 days, starting from August 28. Every day you will have access to one fresh bundle in your game client, and additional offers in the Premium Shop. In addition, a special combat mission will unlock every day, allowing you to earn Festival Tickets.

NOTE: There’s an extra surprise for you during the Fair! If you’re not sure if you want to enrich your collection with a specific vehicle, you can book it and take a break to think this deal over. Find out more details about this feature below!

How to Access the Festival Fair

You can access the Fair in any of the following ways:

  • Simply launch World of Tanks and log in to your account — you will immediately see a quick access link to the Fair. This is available once a day when you first enter the game.
  • Click on the special promo-stand in your Garage.
  • Visit the in-game store by clicking the “Best Offers” tab.

Having entered the calendar of the Festival Fair, you can accept a special combat mission. To do this, simply click on the button.

Time to Score Good Deals!

Each of the daily deals will feature a surprise vehicle. All we can say at this point is that these will be worthwhile vehicles and truly attractive offers.

You can make a purchase in two ways:

  • Right in your game client, for in-game gold. These bundles will feature a variety of Premium tanks, including those that normally aren’t available for gold, as well as a Garage slot, a 100% trained Crew, and x5 EXP for the first 15 victories where you’re ranked in the top 10 players.
  • In the Premium Shop, for real money. You can choose from two bundles featuring the same Premium tanks as the daily offer in your game client, but with extra bonuses.

Choose Now, Buy Later!

Our Festival Fair will be held in two stages. The first, or “active”, stage will start on August 28 at 14:00 UTC +8 and will last 21 days, till September 18. At this point, the featured special daily offers will change every 24 hours.

But unlike previous festive events, this time we have an extra treat for you. You will have the opportunity to book any 3 tanks of your choice, and then take a break to think this deal over. The pending purchase mechanics will only be available for offers for Gold in your game client.

You can remove an already-selected tank without buying it and replace it with a new one. However, remember that your actions will depend on whether the particular tank you want to remove is currently on sale.

  • If the tank is up for sale (the offer is active), it may be added and removed as many times as you want, but only on the day it is sold.
  • If the offer has already expired and the tank isn’t up for sale, you can remove it only if you buy it, or return to the date of its sale in the Fair calendar to remove it from your list of pending purchases.

NOTE: Once removed, you will not be able to return a reserved tank to your list if its daily offer has already expired.

You will have time to make a final purchase decision within 7 days, starting September 18. This is the second stage of the Fair, and if you don’t complete the purchase before September 25, your reserved tanks will disappear. Don’t miss your chance to get new steel predators for your collection!

Owned Tanks and Battle Missions

If you try to buy a tank from the game client which you already own, you will instead receive Gold, a Garage slot, free x5 EXP for the first 15 victories, as well as a free 100% trained Crew for this tank.

You’ll be pleased to know that on top of all these goodies, you can also earn up to 50 Festival Tickets by completing special daily missions. Earn them all and pave your way to the sweetest offers in the Festival Store!

Happy shopping, Commanders!
