Armored Warfare: Q&A Special Edition

Hello Warriors,

Armored Warfare has published a new Q&A:

Territory Wars and Battalion Activities

  •     Top clans will be given the opportunity to provide feedback and actively participate in the new Territory Wars competitive mode development
  •     Territory Wars will be small battalion friendly: they will be separated into leagues and seasons. Smaller battalions will be able to participate in lower tier leagues corresponding to their strength, while strong battalions will battle each other for supremacy on the most lucrative territories
  •     There are also plans for tournament type events, but not in the immediate future
  •     A mercenary system (where independent players would be paid to play for a certain battalion in battalion-level events such as Territory Wars) is not planned for now. Although this is a possibility for the distant future
  •     Out-of-game chat is planned as part of the web-API system (accessing the ingame chat via the portal is planned for the distant future). Web-API will also include social elements
  •     Whether or not to implement voice-chat is still under consideration
  •     There will be a battalion base game mode in which battalions will be able to build their own base and fight other battalions over it – but not at first. It will not be included in the first version of Territory Wars
  •     There are no current plans for exclusive Territory Wars reward tanks

E-25 Marathon on NA server

Hello warriors,

as predicted, the NA server will have an E-25 marathon - but that's not all, apparently the players will be able to collect other rare (removed from sales) tanks as well - more info here:

The real question is... will the cash cow EU server have something similar? After all, it's already 30th of August.

But I guess we all know the answer, don't we.

Hello warriors,

these pictures came to be by copying supertest model files into the live client, replacing one of the existing tanks. Behold, the Chieftain/T95 hybrid in "random":
