The Polar Challenge
November 27, 2020 at 09:00 CET (UTC +1) through December 7, 2020 at 09:00 CET (UTC +1)
Meet the Soviet Battle Star!
Just like most Soviet medium tanks, the brand-new Object 274a is a versatile vehicle with a tough bouncy turret and solid hull armor. Its 107 mm gun boasts great penetration and delivers 320 points of alpha damage, which means this medium can even jump into a 1-on-1 duel with a heavy tank and come out on top—so long as you play to its strengths.
The Object 274a can effectively support other attacking medium vehicles. Although it’s best suited for clashes at short and medium ranges, if the situation on the battlefield becomes unfavorable for your team, it can beat a quick retreat and provide cover for its allies. The great DPM and high view range (390 m) help you make your presence known on any map.
This Soviet medium comes with a 100% crew with Brothers in Arms (as a “zero” perk) and a free Garage slot.
Choose How to Reap the Rewards!
The furious hunt for the Object 274a will last 10 days and involve 10 consecutive Stages. To make the Challenge more enjoyable, there are two ways to reap the rewards: missions for commitment and missions for mastery.
Both sets of tasks can be fulfilled simultaneously (given that all conditions are met), so it doesn’t matter how you progress to the next Stage. The mission that is completed first will count towards your progress to the next mission on either path.
- Missions for commitment: the best choice for commanders with a strong desire to get their hands on the Object 274a. The diverse task conditions must be met using Tier VI–X vehicles. Remember: your result only counts if you are one of the top ten players by experience earned on your team at the end of a battle, no matter whether your team wins or loses.
- Missions for mastery: alternative, but more challenging, tasks. Fulfilling these objectives saves you time, but you must push yourself to the limit to succeed. You can only complete these tasks using Tier IX–X vehicles.
Regardless of the path you choose, you can win tons of rewards, including equipment items, Personal Reserves, consumables, and more! Check them out.
Earn Even More Rewards!
You can also unlock daily post-progression missions. These tasks are exclusively performed in the Object 274a in Random Battles. They will reward you with days of WoT Premium Account, x5 XP missions, and a load of Personal Reserves. Three post-progression missions will bring you even greater prizes, including Training Manuals and more days of WoT Premium Account, so push yourself to the limit to grab them! Don’t miss out!
The faster you get the Object 274a (either by completing the 10 main Stages of the Challenge or purchasing it), the more rewards you can earn in the post-progression. Let’s take a closer look.
- Daily post-progression missions are unlocked on November 27, the first day of the Challenge.
- Every day, you will have access to one new mission with its own set of rewards.
- You can only complete one mission on any given day, and once completed, it becomes unavailable. You cannot catch up with skipped missions from previous days, so the earlier you start, the more missions you can complete. Missions renew daily at 06:00 CET (UTC +1). You can check their conditions and track your progress in a separate tab via the Challenge interface.
