Strongholds Public Test



With the launch of the latest Public Test, you’ll have the chance to test out an exciting new game mode for Clan members: Strongholds. The Strongholds game mode will be available inside the client and is not connected to the Global Map.

Strongholds represent Clan property and consist of a virtual military base, the zones surrounding it, and auxiliary buildings. Strongholds may be created by Clan commanders for free.

Not a member of a Clan? You can still participate in the Strongholds Public Test by creating a free test Clan!

For that matter, there's never been a better time to get a Clan started! During the Month of Clans, you can earn a 2,500 rebate on the formation of a new Clan. Build a Clan and you'll be ready for the Strongholds final release!

It's important for the development of the game mode to get as much feedback as possible. By taking part in the Strongholds Public Test, you can tell us about your thoughts and suggestions on the new game mode. This way the development team can review your feedback and continue making changes to Strongholds before it goes live in World of Tanks. 

Please leave your feedback and any bugs you may find on the dedicated Strongholds Forum Section
