Arcade Cabinet: Element of Surprise

Imagine having the potential to one-shot your opponent and not knowing whether the next hit will feel like a gentle breeze or a hurricane. From July 29 at 10:00 CEST through July 31 at 23:59 CEST (UTC+2), you can experience this for yourself with Arcade Cabinet, which returns this weekend to mix up the rules. Check out the full event guide for more information on this exciting new experience.

Battles in Arcade Cabinet will not contribute to your progress in weekend special missions.

This is your chance to find out just how random our Random Battles can get and discover the power of the element of surprise! In this launch, expect plenty of jaw-dropping twists and turns. You may get lucky and destroy an IS-7 with Improved Hardening with a single shot, while someone else may cause pitifully low damage and crawl back to their Garage, hoping to be more fortunate next time. As World of Tanks players like to say, “Skill is skill, but RNG is RNG!”

How to Find Arcade Cabinet

In the Garage, select the Arcade Cabinet mode from the menu to the right of the “Battle!” button. When hovering over the mode button, you’ll see the combat modifiers that will be applied in battle. Check them out and prepare to be surprised!

Standard Rules for All Launches

All launches in Arcade Cabinet will be played according to the standard rules of Random Battles:

  • Same-tier battles will be in the 15v15 format.* Only Tier VIII and X vehicles are allowed.
  • Matchmaking is by vehicle type.
  • Objective: Capture the base or destroy all enemy vehicles.
  • Platoons are allowed.
  • Battle results in this mode do not count towards your statistics. You have nothing to prove, so just play and enjoy!
  • Credits and Combat XP earning rates, as well as the costs of repairs and consumables, are the same as in Random Battles.
  • Bonds and Battle Pass Points cannot be earned in this mode.
  • Combat missions for credits will be available in Tier X battles.
  • The principles of fair play should be followed in all battles.
Each of the Arcade Cabinet submodes will have separate queues for Tier VIII and X vehicles. If there is an insufficient number of players in the queue, the matchmaker may launch a battle with fewer participants.

Battles in the Arcade Cabinet – Element of Surprise mode will be fought on the following maps:

Abbey, Live Oaks, Malinovka, Mines, Mountain Pass, Paris, Ruinberg
