WoT EU – A New Vehicle Featuring the Offspring, and It’s Pretty Fly!

Now nothing can stand in the way of California punk!

Prepare yourself to tame a truly outstanding vehicle fully inspired by punk rock! Wargaming and the legendary Californian punk rockers, The Offspring, have teamed up to bring the most rocking hero to the battlefield, the brand-new TL-1 LPC with a formidable ‘Pretty Fly’ 3D-style.

 

 

This year’s WG Fest: Tanker Day headliners can stay in your Garage for good—just add this menacing vehicle with an incredible 3D-style to your collection! It has numerous features, making it stand out from the crowd:

  • A rocking Crew: The Offspring band members are now a tank Crew! They’ve all been trained with “Zero Skill” Brothers in Arms Perk and come with enough XP to learn a second skill or perk
  • Exclusive custom voiceover: Recorded by Dexter and Noodles. When rolling out with the TL-1 LPC, you can listen to their powerful battle commands, as well as their dialogue, banter and jokes
  • A unique ‘Pretty Fly’ 3D-style: Designed as a concert stage, this removable camouflage embodies the rocking spirit of The Offspring and unites power and music
  • A special soundtrack with a band’s hit ‘The Kids Aren’t Alright’: the tank’s main theme will come in several mixes, accompanying you in each battle you enter and raising your fighting spirit

The TL1 LPC: Why Don’t You Get a Shot?

We’ve been looking for the perfect candidate to fit the role of the most punk-rock tank in our game for a long time. Obviously, this tank must be American, because The Offspring hails from the sunny state of California. The band’s music is a powerful stream of drive and energy, so the tank should be both fast and furious. Finally, it must strike enemies not only with its unique look, but also with decent combat parameters.

This is precisely the case with the TL-1 LPC, the brand-new Tier VIII American medium tank. This versatile medium vehicle with a fast-firing, accurate gun lets you make your presence known on any map. Let’s take a closer look at this rock star, destined for mid-to-close combat.

  • Just like most American tanks, it has a solid bouncy turret, allowing you to take advantage of the terrain and easily ricochet enemy’s rounds.
  • The TL-1 LPC has well-sloped frontal armor and can withstand some direct fire.
  • You can rely on the accuracy and DPM of its well-balanced gun, even on the move, allowing you to support your team as a proper flanker from the second line of fire.
  • Its alpha-damage is not the best for its tier (280 points), but it has enough firepower to seriously hurt opponents.
  • Thanks to good maneuverability and a top-speed of 50 km/h, the TL-1 LPC can easily change flanks and take up crucial positions as it’ll reach them faster than other vehicles.

Pretty Fly: Give It to Me Baby!

But the real highlight of this tank is its neckbreaking ‘Pretty Fly’ 3D-style. Designed as a live concert stage for the band, the ultimate black livery embodies the fist pumping spirit of punk rock and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. The tank is outfitted with spotlights, tube amps, a soundboard and the band members’ instruments, each replicated down to the smallest detail.

The hazardous Skull Logo lets others know you mean business. Old-school skateboards with The Offspring artworks remind you that the band is always rocking out with you, even in the heat of battle. World of Tanks has never seen anything like it!

Defy You: More Information on The Offspring Crew

The TL-1 LPC comes with its own unique Crew representing the iconic punk-rockers as courageous tankers, check them out below.

Dexter Holland

Commander (Radio Operator)
The lead singer, guitar player, and songwriter is a modern-day Renaissance Man! He has a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, makes Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce, and he is a real-life jet pilot! The rest of the crew remains uncertain whether those aircraft skills will transfer to an intense tank battle though.

Noodles

Gunner
The lead guitarist attacks his instrument with a mixture of anger, sheer joy, and reckless abandon. As with every great guitarist and gunner, Noodles knows you have to take chances and give it 100% in order to hit just the right notes.

Pete Parada

Driver
The band’s drummer. Dozing off to his metronome may prove hazardous to health. Tick‑tock‑tick‑bang! Tick‑tock‑tick‑blam! However, when driving, he makes no sudden moves. Any break in rhythm is considered incompetence for a drummer.

Todd Morse

Loader
The bass guitarist who skillfully and passionately both loads shells and immerses thousands of fans in a breathtaking atmosphere during the performance. His endless positive energy and punk vibes
raise the morale of the entire crew to the highest level.

  1. Commercial: Tanks fly and jump and go 150mph uphill,

    Real game: Tanks are like flies stuck in sticky goo. Sooo slow…

    Thanks for not lying to us in product representation, Wargaming.

  2. What on hell does the Offspring have to do with a tank game?
    Sabaton I can understand.
    Other bands whose songs are about heroes and fighting like Manowar I could understand.
    But Offspring?! Wtf is going on lately…

    1. Nostalgia in the West (28-40 year olds are going to be hit hard by this) and RU/CIS being their usual 15-20 years behind on pop culture is what\’s driving this one primarily. It\’s not really a massive stretch either, to be honest: The Offspring was a fairly regular appearance on video game soundtracks back in the late 90s to early 00s, so you can tie them to anything pretty much.

      IMO, it\’s not really necessary for promotions like these to involve people directly connected to tanks or warfare—this stuff draws new people in and you can always disable non-historical stuff if it bothers you anyway. This is fairly comparable to the Alexander Ovechkin promo they ran in WoWs a while back.

    2. What\’s next? Britney Spears themed premium light tank? Justin Bieber themed premium arty?
