Update 1.16.1: Common Test 2 is Here!


The second Common Test of Update 1.16.1 is now available. Make sure and check out the upcoming changes and new features planned for the next patch!

The Art of Strategy event will be available during the Common Test starting Friday, April 1 at 23:00 PT | Saturday, April 2 at 01:00 CT | 02:00 ET.

Art of Strategy Event Leaderboards

There are three leaderboards within the Art of Strategy event: Two leaderboards for playing as a Strategist (1v1 and 1v7 formats), and one leaderboard for playing as a Tanker. To get placed on the leaderboard, a player should fight a certain number of battles in the corresponding mode.

The position on the leaderboard will depend on the number of points earned for victories, defeats, and draws. The better the results you achieve, the higher your position on the leaderboard will be. Players who end up at the top of the respective leaderboards can consider themselves to be the most competent Strategists and true Ace Tankers!

Once the event results are finalized, the best players will receive unique rewards.
