April Fools Special!

In-Game Events
In other languages: th zh-tw ja

Tank Commanders,

It's the first day of April, and millions of people are already planning to prank the socks off their friends and families. Are you the mastermind today, or the victim?

No matter which role you're going to play today (or none at all, if you really don't like that sort of thing), you can always count on us to be honest and true. So trust us when we say that this week will be exceptionally fun!

First up, we have a exclusive new vehicle available for players for just this week: Karl! Karl is so unique that he (She? It???) has a whole game mode created for this occasion. Scroll down to the section below to learn more about the tank and the special new map.

We're also brushing the dust off our rarest of awards for this occasion: the Raseiniai Heroes' Medal. If you manage to earn the medal during this period, we'll shower you with 2,000,000 Credits!

Perhaps pulling off a prank in real life doesn't seem that enticing anymore? See you in the field, Tank Commanders!

Roll out!



01 - 04 April: Karl!

New Kid on the Block

Meet Karl, our special guest for this event which will run from 1st to 4th April. Officially known as the SPG 'Karl-Geraet', Karl was plucked from another 8-bit universe to be of service to you!

Here's some detailed information about Karl:

  • Classification: Tier I German SPG
  • Short range of fire
  • 10 - 90 degrees sight angle
  • High reload speed (~2 seconds)
  • 1-man Immortal Crew (he cannot be injured or killed!)
  • No Sniper mode - Arty mode available
  • Karl is destroyed once he receives 3 direct hits
  • Low shell velocity
  • 1000 rounds ammunition (will be provided Free of Charge)
  • Karl can still be loaded with Consumables and Equipment
  • Platoons will not be available when using Karl
  • Karl does not provide Credits, EXP, Crew EXP or achievements (excluding the specially-prepared achievement for this event)
  • No exterior customisation available for Karl
  • Karl cannot be sold
  • Karl's stay will not be permanent - the vehicle will be removed after the event

A New Arena

Unfortunately, Karl can only exist in certain atmospheres - dumping him into Mines or Himmelsdorf will likely cause him to disintegrate. That's why you'll do battle with him in a special new map!

To enter a battle with Karl, simply select the vehicle from your garage, then join a Random Battle. The new matchmaking has already been notified about Karl's... disability, and will drop him into the special 'Battlecity' map without fail.

In this zone, things are somewhat different from usual. Walls can be destroyed, the terrain is blocky and everything sounds like an old 1980s program... or something out of the 8-bit tales video series. But what does it matter? Blast away with Karl!
