Take The Chieftain's Challenge!

Subtitles in our supported languages are also available by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner.

The World of Tanks Salute Program started six months ago, which is plenty of time for a good number of active military and veterans to enroll. Let's see if all that taxpayer-funded training has any application on the virtual battlefield of World of Tanks!

From May 21–June 1, we're going to see how often a player with the military tag can earn 1,200 Base XP in a battle in comparison to their non-military counterparts. At the end of the event, the winning team — civilian or military — gets 9× Camouflage: "All-season WG Fest." You can see the percentage of successfully completed missions for each team via our scoreboard, which is active until the competition ends.

Note: The event is for North America players only.

How It Works

All players must sign-up for the event by clicking the "Register for the Chieftain's Challenge" button. 


If you're a military member who's registered with the World of Tanks Salute program or a civilian, sign up for The Chieftain's Challenge event by clicking the following button:

Once you are signed up for the event (you can find the mission the game client's "Other Missions" section), complete the following mission as many times as possible during the active mission period (dates and times listed below). Regardless of how your team performs overall in the event, you earn an Emblem (along with one point for your team) each time you successfully satisfy the Condition.

Mission: A Question of Skill

EVENT BEGINS: Thursday, May 21 at 04:20 PT | 06:20 CT | 07:20 ET
EVENT ENDS: Monday, June 1 at 04:20 PT | 06:20 CT | 07:20 ET

  • Earn 1,200 Base XP in a battle
  • Must be in a Tier VIII-X vehicle
  • Random Battles, Grand Battles, Skirmish, and Advance

  • 1× Emblem: "The Chieftain"
  • 1× Token: "Sniper"

"Wait a minute," you say. "This is an awesome event, but wouldn't the civilian team win by sheer numbers?"

No — for two reasons. One, the mission Condition is fairly steep, so it's more a match of skill than team with the most contestants wins. Second, we use a formula where the number of completed missions for each team is divided by the number of players on each team who signed up for the event.

Good luck!
