Tank Commanders,

You've completed many battles since Christmas and the New Year, and now's the time to take stock and examine your next step in progression within World of Tanks. Will you concentrate on earning another perk for your best crew, or focus your energies on mastering another tech tree branch?

No matter which way you head, we have you covered. This weekend, we're offering another temporary increase in the amount of Free EXP you earn per battle [UPDATE], along with discounts for both Crew training and skill reset costs.

Lastly, we've got a new 2-part mission series available this weekend with some useful rewards for your time. If you manage to complete the optional objectives for this week's contest, you might also win some gold to boot!

Roll out!
