It's been one year since Cmdr_AF and our awesome video team started our latest weekly show, WoT's Next—and what a year it's been, huh? To celebrate its one-year anniversary, we're launching a special T-shirt design contest with 25,000 Gold and more on the line!
We're sending out the search flares for our most creative Commanders to whip up some sweet and clever designs. Feel free to reference any of WoT's iconic branding, or—since this is a WoT's Next-themed contest—come up with a creative riff on WoT's Next lore. The only rule is...there are no rules!
Actually, that's a lie. Here are the rules:
- The deadline for submissions is Sunday, May 16 at 21:59 PT | 23:59 CT | Monday, May 17 at 00:59 ET

- File size must not exceed 25 MB in size.
