Personal Reserves


Personal Reserves are entities that, upon activation, allow you to receive additional bonuses after each battle.

Regardless of your game experience in World of Tanks, Personal Reserves can make the gameplay even more enjoyable. By activating a Personal Reserve, you receive a temporary bonus to earned XP or credits. In case the time of the Reserve expired during a battle, you will receive an additional bonus afterward. Personal Reserves can be activated in Random Battles and in most other battles.

In World of Tanks, there are three kinds of Personal Reserves, each allowing you to receive an additional bonus to the following in-game resources:

  • Combat XP
  • Free XP and Crew XP
  • Credits

For each kind of Personal Reserve, there are two types of Reserves—Standard and Improved—that differ by bonus value. The duration of every Personal Reserve is one hour.

Type of Personal Reserves Combat XP Free XP and Crew XP Credits
Standard +50% +200% +50%
Improved +100% +300% +100%

Conditions of Use

Personal Reserves are convenient to use and have a number of advantages, such as:

  • Personal Reserves are stored in the Depot and are not removed.
  • A Reserve can be activated at any moment, including during a battle.
  • The effect of the activated Reserve is cumulative with other bonuses and available actions.

However, certain restrictions are applied to Personal Reserves, such as:

  • You can't activate two Reserves with the same bonuses at the same time.
  • Upon activation, the duration of the Personal Reserve is one hour.
  • You can't cancel the action of the activated Reserve.
