Under the Hammer – Official Info

Source: EU Portal

From January 14–19, you will have a chance to receive very rare vehicles for gold or Free Experience. For this, you’ll need to make a bid at a special auction and win.

Over a period of five days, the auction will sell several exclusive vehicles—and they can all be yours!

How It Works

1. From January 14 through January 19, visit the new Under the Hammer! section in the in-game Store, or take a look at the pop-up in the lower-right corner in the Garage.

2. Every day at 10:00 CET, a new lot will be displayed there. You will see how many items are available, as well as the lot’s starting price in gold or Free Experience.
Remember: If the cost is specified in gold, Free Experience is not accepted, and vice versa.

3. Make a bid that you are ready to pay. This amount will be deducted from your account.

4. Only one lot will be available for Free Experience during the auction. If an item is sold for Free Experience, you will see a competitive bid when the number of bids on it exceeds the number of items. What is it? As many highest bids are accepted as there are available items: the one in the middle of this list is the competitive one. If you make a competitive bid (or even outbid it), you can count on winning the auction.

The competitive bid is dynamic and is updated every 10 minutes. The last update is 10 minutes before the end of the auction. Along with the competitive bid, you will also see the total number of participants applying for the vehicle.

5. Bids are accepted until 06:00 CET of the next day after the announcement of the lot. Until that time, you can change your bid as many times as you like—you can even cancel it. If you cancel a bid, the gold/XP will be returned to your account. Bids will be returned and lots will be credited to the auction winners within four hours after the end of accepting bids.

6. The number of winning bids is determined by the number of available items. If the number of highest bids exceeds the number of remaining vehicles, the earliest bids will be given priority among others of the same value.


If the auction participants made 1,000 identical winning bids and only 300 vehicles are available, the earliest 300 bids will win.

7. The winners receive their goods. The rest of the auction participants receive their bids back in full.

8. Vehicles won in the auction are non-refundable.

  1. Wow, only 1 available for free xp??? now WHO would have thought that, open you wallets IDIOTS, and go pay WG some more…. FUCKING RETARDS

    1. with the free XP offer, WG is surely hoping to get as many people as possible to convert as much of it as possible. it’s an enhanced cash grab disguised a free currency offer. hope that people are smart enough not to waste their money on gold to convert their pixels into other pixels.

    1. Yes, yes, of course they need money and they are not a charity, but what do you get in return for your hard earned money ? Did the quality of game increased ? Did they fixed the textures? Did they fixed the mm? They promised gold rebalance, did they keep their promise ? What did you get beside +/- 25% RNG and some premium tanks that soon will get obsolete ?

      1. They will implement SCrew 2.0 which no one asked for, to make another mechanics for milking 😀

        1. To be honest, i did like Crew 2.0 for the most part . I liked the fact that you can train a crew for the multiple tanks, but i disliked that you lose too much xp if you train it with credits. I love that they improved the skills ( for example the repair skill was merged with the firefight skill) but i hated those broken skill boosts. To NOT spot a light tank at 200 m was waaaaaaaaaaaay too much. I don’t mind to improve the skills a little, but not this much. Who knows, maybe they will fix this issues.

          1. Yeah, a lot balancing work needed, it was obvious the 2.0 cant go live.
            I also like the idea that you can train crew for multiple tanks, its good for new players, but for me as a 2011 veteran its useless, because I have all crews I needed at decent or higher level. As you said, there were also good things about the crew, but still we know WG and they will do everything to milk the players, also veterans.
