[Updated] Battle Pass Season IX: Event Guide

Commanders! Welcome to Battle Pass Season IX, taking place from September 8, 03:00 UTC+8 through November 29, 02:00 UTC+8.

Start off with a Chapter of your choosing, then complete the Stages one by one to enter a world of excellent rewards. This Season, these include progressive 3D styles for the Season IX Core Vehicles: the 60TP Lewandowskiego, the Progetto M40 mod. 65, and the AMX 13 105 (the first-ever light tank in a Battle Pass lineup). Keep in mind that this will be the last season of Battle Pass in 2022, which means you have to spend all your Battle Pass Tokens before they are reset.

Luckily, there are plenty of valuable rewards on offer. Do you have a Cobra yet? Want some more rare Tier IX vehicles for your Garage? Well, this is your chance!

[UPDATED] 07/09/2022
 
Taking the discussion on the matter into consideration, we’ve decided NOT to make Personal Reserves from Season IX Base rewards time-limited after Update 1.18.1. Therefore, ALL Personal Reserves you obtain as Battle Pass Season IX rewards will have no expiration date, whether you collect them before or after 1.18.1 hits.
 
Regarding time-limited Personal Reserves in general, we will introduce them as an in-game entity with Update 1.18.1. Yet we have no plans to use them in in-game activities in foreseeable future.
 
Once the new mechanics are introduced, all Personal Reserves on your account will be converted into the new reserves at no loss of value. Expect a dedicated article on the new Personal Reserves in the coming days. 

 
 

The Rewards

If you played the previous two Battle Pass Seasons of 2022, you know the drill: Earn Battle Pass Points and complete Stages to receive rewards. Start with any Chapter and switch between Chapters as often as you wish without losing your progress. If you would like more comprehensive instructions or just want to know every single detail about Season IX, check out the full guide.

The mountain of Battle Pass Season IX prizes is already towering high, but you can make it even taller by obtaining an Improved Pass. Take a look at the available rewards below!

Reworked Personal Reserves

Soon, we will announce all of the improvements we’re going to make to the mechanics and UI of Personal Reserves.

But for now, here are the key changes:

  • All Personal Reserves will have a duration of one hour.
  • Personal Reserves for Crew XP and Free XP will be merged into a single combined type. (This also applies to Season IX progression rewards.)
  • Along with the three types of Personal Reserves, there will be two grades of bonuses: Standard (+50% to XP / +50% to credits / +200% to Crew and Free XP) and Improved (+100% to XP / +100% to credits / +300% to Crew and Free XP).
  • Newly-issued Standard Personal Reserves, including those from Season IX Base Rewards, will have an expiration date (one month after Season IX ends), but Improved Personal Reserves will not.

Once the new mechanics are introduced, all Personal Reserves on your account will be converted into the new reserves at no loss of value. Personal Reserves that are collected as Season IX Base Rewards before the implementation of the new mechanics will not have expiration dates after being converted. Moreover, Personal Reserves that come as Improved Rewards will never have expiration dates.

You can expect a dedicated article on the new Personal Reserves mechanics in the coming days.

The 3D Styles

The Season IX 3D styles give the Core Vehicles a cutting-edge appearance, bristling with innovation.

  • The Bernard 3D style for the  X 60TP Lewandowskiego  turns this tough tank into a truly stylish moving stronghold.
  • The Cesare 3D style for the  X Progetto M40 mod. 65  makes this sharpshooter look even sharper.
  • The Le Vizir 3D style for the  X AMX 13 105  gives this nimble-yet-dangerous reconnaissance vehicle a hi-tech visual upgrade.
  • 60TP Lewandowskiego
  • Progetto M40 mod. 65
  • AMX 13 105

The Crew Members

Three skilled crew members will join your side once you complete their respective Chapters in Battle Pass Season IX. Each of these new crew members is inspired by heroic tales from 20th century history. Their looks are all based on talented, real people from our development team who work hard to create new and legendary content for World of Tanks.

The 2D Styles

These Season IX reward 2D styles can fit on any vehicle and are sure to look great!

 

The Cobra

Here comes a very rare reptile that will happily feed on your opponents’ tears. But all jokes aside, this British Tier IX medium tank featuring an autoloader that can be packed with HESH shells has already proven itself in many battles. Get it before Season IX ends! If you already have the Cobra in your Garage, consider claiming some of the other great rewards offered for Battle Pass Tokens, including Tier IX vehicles and bounty equipment.
