Season 8 of the Referral Program is drawing to a close, so hurry up and take advantage of your free slots for Recruits if you haven’t used them yet!
Season 8 of the Referral Program ends on January 26, 2022 and starting with Season 9, which launches on the same day, new pools of Premium vehicles will be available for Commanders and their Recruits. We also reworked the Recruit progression in the Referral Campaign, rebalanced solo mission #2, and improved several interfaces. We’re making these changes to make it harder to abuse the system while still keeping it interesting for legitimate Recruits and Commanders. Let’s dig into the details!
Reward Pool for Commanders and Recruits
Starting with Season 9, there will be a fixed roster of five Premium tanks for Commanders and five for Recruits. You can redeem any vehicle of your choice from those available. These vehicle pools below will remain unchanged for future Seasons of the Referral Program.
|Commander’s Reward||Recruit’s Reward|
|A Tier VIII Premium vehicle of the player’s choice from the list:||A Tier VI–VII Premium vehicle of the player’s choice from the list:|
|VIII STA-2||VI T-34-85M|
|VIII T-54 first prototype||VI Škoda T 40|
|VIII T26E5||VII SU-122-44|
|VIII T92||VI Tiger 131|
|VIII VK 168.01 (P) or 3,400,000||VII VK 45.03 or 1,900,000|
Recruit Progression Rework
We also reworked the Recruit progression system. To earn Referral Points and complete the Referral Campaign, Recruits need to play in vehicles of certain tiers at each stage. The further you progress in the Campaign, the higher the required vehicle tier.
|Referral Program Stage||1||2||3||4||5||6|
|Eligible Vehicle Tiers||II–X||V–X||VI–X||VI–X||VII–X||VII–X|
Regardless of whether the Recruit plays alone or in a Platoon with their Commander, the Recruit will receive a bonus to credits and XP at the end of the battle only if they play in a vehicle of a tier that matches the current referral stage. The bonuses the Recruit will receive are as follows:
- When playing alone, there is a bonus of +50% to Combat XP and credits.
- When playing in a Platoon with your Commander, the Recruit will receive 100% more Combat XP and credits.
The Commander will get the bonus when playing in a Platoon (+50% to Combat XP and credits) only if at least one of their Recruits in this Platoon receives their bonus.
Together with the Recruit progression rework, these changes will deter those who seek to abuse the Referral Program, while also rewarding responsible Commanders.
We also rebalanced the conditions of solo mission #2:
|Old Conditions||New Conditions|
|The total damage caused by the player and damage caused with the player’s help must be higher than the number of hit points of their vehicle.||The total damage caused by the player and damage caused with the player’s help must be higher than the number of hit points of their vehicle when playing in a heavy tank, medium tank, light tank, or tank destroyer, and it must be 3 times the number when playing in an SPG.|
We also improved several interfaces to make them more informative. For example, you can now check your progress in the Referral Campaign and find out how many Referral Points from the daily limit you can still earn.
