Tankers, it's time to saddle up and participate in a special PAX Prime event. Even if you're not attending the convention, you'll still have a chance to win one of a number of fabulous prizes. The event is simple, and there's no submission needed -- we'll be doing all of the work!

Simply log on to World of Tanks and queue up for battles at the times listed below from August 26, 2011 to August 28, 2011. If you're lucky enough to get into a battle with one of the PAX accounts listed below and manage to destroy their tank, you'll be entered into a drawing. We have a number of prize packs available to give away, ranging from 500 Gold to unlocking ALL CURRENT PREMIUM TANKS. You definitely don't want to miss out on this!

Times

  • August 26, 2011: 12PM PDT (3PM EDT) to 9PM PDT (12AM EDT)
  • August 27, 2011: 10AM PDT (1PM EDT) to 9PM PDT (12AM EDT)
  • August 28, 2011: 10AM PDT (1PM EDT) to 6PM PDT (9PM EDT)

PAX Accounts To Kill
Be on the lookout for the two accounts listed below. If you manage to destroy their tank, your account name will be noted and entered into a pool of those who have successfully destroyed the tank. After PAX Prime is over, we will hold the drawing and select winners for various prizes, ranging from 500 Gold to unlocking ALL CURRENT PREMIUM TANKS.

NOTE:TEAM KILLS DO NOT QUALIFY YOU FOR THE DRAWING. ONLY DESTROYING THE ENEMY TANK DRIVEN BY THE ACCOUNTS BELOW WILL MAKE YOU ELIGIBLE.

  • PAX_Geiger
  • PAX_Kodiak

Both of these accounts have all research and tanks unlocked, so they will be playing battles at all tiers and on a variety of tanks and tank destroyers. Everyone has the opportunity to win at all tiers.

So, be on the lookout for PAX_Geiger and PAX_Kodiak this weekend. You can follow us on Twitter to stay updated on when each person is playing, and what tier to queue up for!

Good luck, and have fun!

Awesome and thank you for the contest.

I still think it would get a good idea to have rewards for the team that Defends this guy, because I don't think he is just going to suicide into the opposing force.

That's actually a very good idea. Let me pass that on and see if we can add that in. :)

Unlocking of all current Premium tanks??  Gold is good, but a chance for all Premiums is even better... good thing I'm a name watcher while playing...

Now, where'd I leave my Tank keys...?? :Smile_harp:

That makes me feel sad for the new people who would want to try out WoT at PAX. They will get focus fired soooooooo much!  :Smile-hiding: Then again, I guess they could try out any end tier tank they want.

Edit: Oh wait, nvm what i said :P

They usually give you the tanks with garage slots.

Do the prem tanks include the pre-order tanks like A32 and non-released tanks on US server like the BT-SV, Pz 2 ausf J, KV220 etc. ?

I am assuming this idea never went through?
Perhaps for the next time?

No, only the currently available Premium tanks are included in the prize package. For the most part, Premium tanks that are no longer available were given out for special reasons, and so they likely won't be given out as prizes in events.

Yeah it didn't happen this time, but I've noted it down for a potential event idea for the next time we run something like this.

Nicely done! Geiger was being played by a former pro gamer, so it's no easy task to take him down. :)

We'll be contacting the winners by the end of this week to credit you with your prizes and confirm that you're okay with us announcing your usernames on the website.
