"Birth of Titans" - New Clan Wars Event

Event Starts August 16, 05:00 PT / 08:00  ET
Ends August 28, 05:00 PT / 08:00 ET

We're excited to announce the start of the next event on the Global Map. "Birth of Titans" continues the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first tank rolling to battle!

A Bit of History

When tanks first appeared 100 years ago, their military might changed everything. British "Mark" tanks were the first steel titans to join the battle.

Later, many countries started developing their own.

Such a powerful force changed land-based warfare forever -- and inspired the creation of World of Tanks, of course!

2. Special Rules and Regulations

During "Birth of Titans," Clans take part in two Clan operations with several Clan tasks. Clans then earn Fame Points for completing the tasks.

Attack on Citadel

  • Win a set number of battles in target provinces
  • Win a defined series of battles in target provinces
  • Capture and control the Citadel provinces

Attack on Mark IV

  • Win a set number of battles in target provinces
  • Win a defined series of battles in target provinces
2.1. Citadels

2.1.1. The Global Map has special provinces known as Citadels. When "Birth of Titans" starts, every Clan is assigned the "Attack on Citadel" operation. If a Clan completes this operation and captures target provinces, they'll get Fame Points and special orders to attack the provinces that have the Mark IV tank. The tank moves from province to province on the Global Map. "Attack on Citadel" lasts for one Prime Time. When this period ends, the operation is re-assigned to all Clans regardless of their progress.

2.1.2. A Citadel is a province or several provinces surrounded by fortifications (landing provinces).

2.1.3. Clans can capture a Citadel only from neighboring territories. To do this they need to capture one of the fortifications (landing provinces nearby). Every Citadel province will border at least one landing province where Clans can land and attack Citadel provinces by land.

2.1.4. Clans earn Fame Points for capturing target provinces during "Attack on Citadel."

Clan TaskDescriptionClan Fame Points

2.1.5. For completing "Attack on Citadel," Clans receive orders to attack special provinces with a Mark IV tank. Clans can capture several Citadels and get a few orders to attack the Mark IV. Clans get one order for capturing or holding a Citadel province.  The maximum number of active orders per clan is five.

2.2. Mark IV Tank

2.2.1. During "Birth of Titans," a Mark IV will be moving from province to province on the Global Map. The "Attack on Mark IV" operation will start August 18. For completing Clan tasks in the "Attack on Mark IV" operation, Clans will earn Fame Points.

2.2.2. Upon completing the "Seize the Citadel" task, the Clan will be assigned the "Attack on Mark IV" operation. This operation is available only if a Clan has a Mark IV attack order.

2.2.3. A landing province with a Mark IV has closed borders and no fixed position on the Global Map. To attack this province, Clans need to apply for a landing tournament.

2.2.4. Provinces with a Mark IV are marked with special icon.

2.2.5. When a Prime Time expires, the Mark IV will move to another province.

2.2.6. The province where a Mark IV moves into during the next Prime Time becomes a landing province. The Divisions from owners of the province where the Mark IV was before will be removed.

3.1.2. A Clan also gets the same amount of Fame Points for each battle as a member of the Clan who participated in the battle. For example, players of Clan A got 36 personal Fame Points after a battle. Thus, Clan A also gets 36 Clan Fame Points.

Fake battles are rule violations and lead to full Clan/personal Fame Points penalties and game account suspension. (More details)

In Fame Points crediting disputes (e.g., suspected "false" battles, etc.), administrators reserve the right to request a battle replay, screenshots and other information relating to the situation. If the requested information is not provided, the administration reserves the right to impose sanctions on potential offenders. We strongly recommend enabling "record battles" in your game settings.
