The World of Tanks team would like to announce the imminent start of the first game event on new Global Map, during which new mechanics and large-scale events will be tested! Completing quest tasks and engaging in ferocious tank battles with rival clans for the promise of gold and tank prizes - all this awaits you in Operation Safari!
It is the early 21st century. The world is experiencing a period of instability and tension in anticipation of shocking developments. Many points on Earth are in a state of heated confrontation, echoes of which reverberate to all corners of the planet. The world as a whole retains its balance for now, but a single event that took place on the Southern Hemisphere threatens to push the world into another global war, which could be the last for war for humanity.
The incident began when the government of one of the Gulf countries decided to transfer their stocks of weapons-grade uranium for processing to IAEA, with several tons of uranium loaded onto a cargo ship under top-secret conditions. However, there was a leak of information; the warship escorting the cargo ship was sabotaged and sunk in the Gulf of Aden, and in the ensuing attack by Somali pirates the cargo was seized.
With access to weapons-grade uranium available in a few days to anyone with the money to spend and the will to use it, the threat of unprecedented magnitude hangs over the world. In a desperate bid to maintain a semblence of order, the armed forces of all UN members were raised and charged with a single objective - preventing the deadly shipment from getting into the wrong hands. Action must be taken now, before all trace of the enriched Uranium disappears into the vast expanse of the African continent!
The Operation Safari event will take place between 05:00 UTC+8 14 October 2015 and 23 October 2015.
During the event, the following activities are available:
Clans will be able to earn Fame points during the event and players will receive Personal Fame points for each battle, which will allow winning clans and players access to main event prizes.
The main trophies for Operation Safari will be:
300 Tier VIII French FCM50t
1,500 Tier VII USA Т23Е3 (with improved penetration)
Based on feedback given for previous game events, the prize distribution system of tanks will be changed and will be built on the basis of the activity both clans and players, which will balance the prizes in clans and individual competition.
The distribution of clan tanks will be based on a system of clan licenses, which has been used in the "Armageddon" event, while the distribution of tanks in individual standings will be based on a system used in the "Twilight of the Gods" event.
The current changes and order of prizes distribution are as follows:
In addition to reward tanks, players will also be able to attain the following unique event medals:
|Tactical Master I Class|
|Tactical Master II Class|
|Tactical Master III Class|
|Tactical Master IV Class|
|Big Game Hunter I Class|
|Big Game Hunter II Class|
|Big Game Hunter III Class|
More information about the event including the calculation system and the conditions to obtain the medals will be available in the Operation Safari Regulations, which will be published soon. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
