8.5 Event "XP Jäger" [UPDATE]

Update 04/30/2013: Due to previous confusion we've added the VK 30.02 (D) to this event as well.


To help welcome the latest addition of vehicles to the battlefield, we're hosting another of our immensely popular "Top 100" contests! Starting once the 8.5 Update goes live until 16:59 PDT (19:59 EDT) on May 24, 2013, we'll be recording everyone's top XP scores. Those sitting in the "Top 100" for each of the new vehicles at the end of the event will earn themselves a nice chunk of change, and those sitting the the top three spots for each tank will earn themselves the Gold prize, a free tank, or a month of Premium!

Contest Starts: When 8.5 Update Goes Live

Contest Ends: 16:59 PDT (19:59 EDT) on May 24, 2013

Contest Details & Rules

  • Battle results that are counted will not included bonuses (Premium account, bonus XP for first victory of day, Operation rewards, etc.)
    • Note that the maximum XP recorded in your Service Record is not a raw total
  • Only random battles will count. No Clan Wars or company battles will be counted

Please note that any attempt to artificially inflate your score (entirely determined at the discretion of Wargaming                 staff) is grounds for disqualification from the event.
