Happy Wednesday, everyone! 

 

I know you've been looking for some more information on the British Challenge, and we recently released our content article that details the event: Take the British Challenge!

 

Be sure to check out the article, because it has some fancy widgets that show you the CAX and its stats. 

 

 

Event Starts: September 14, 07:00 PT | 09:00 CT | 10:00 ET
Event Ends: September 28, 07:00 PT | 09:00 CT | 10:00 ET

 

 

The Brits are receiving reinforcements with a whole new beast. Bolstering the U.K. line is a new Tier VIII Premium heavy tank, the Caernarvon Action X, and it’s the grand prize for the British Challenge, adorned in a unique camo especially for the event.

 

The British Challenge is fairly similar to the Italian Challenge, where players could earn the autoreloading Progetto M35 mod 46. This time around, we heard your feedback and made the Challenge a bit more simple, but it still packs a punch. 

 

The CAX has decent armor but it’s not enough to play from the front. Its gun really focuses on DPM, even though it’s average damage per shot is 230. While low for a Tier VIII heavy, the gun boasts great accuracy and combines with good depression to compensate. Just remember to play slightly behind the front line and use the terrain to cover your hull! Plus the Caernarvon Action X is a perfect Crew trainer for those looking to take command of the Super Conquerer at Tier X!

 

So, how does it work? Check out the spoiler for more info:

 

How it Works


Oh, and I would like to mention the Fast Track. If you find you’re running out of time to complete the missions, the tank will be available in the Premium Shop and you will be discounted 10% for each stage you’ve already completed. So, for example, completing 7 out of 10 stages will knock 70% off the price.

 

IMPORTANT: Purchasing the bundle gives you the full pack of rewards and automatically checks all event battle missions as completed. So you won’t be able to access them once you have the bundle.

 

The Caernarvon Action X will remain on sale for two days after the end of the event — until September 30, 07:00 PT | 09:00 CT | 10:00 ET, so even if you run out of time, you’ll still be able to get your hands on this British Premium!

 

Thanks, everyone! Hope that you're as excited for the British Challenge as we are!

I plan on doing this, but I plan on doing it passively, in other words just play and see where I land.

Thanks Gnomon. Will we be able to put regular camo on it, or will we be stuck with the paint job ?

Any idea what the bundle is and how much it is?

Does anyone know why the XP missions are done so badly? There's no logical progression across the levels... 24k, 30k, 35k, 35k...

Aside from the fact that 280k base XP is way too much. 200k would be much more nice and you would actually have far more players playing on a daily basis. *But that's none of my business.*

my dumb question: are the missions time gated? say if I finish the first stage do I have to wait until the next day to finish the 2nd, or, does it start right after?

Question: Can you play a Tier X and play towards either Commitment or Mastery and whatever comes first you get?

If it's like the Italian grind, once you complete a level, it automatically opens the next level to be completed.

I believe so. I was trying to shorten my grind few times during the Progetto marathon and IIRC it counted XP while I was doing High Caliber missions in my tier X's.

I'm happy they came out with what looks like on paper a pretty good tier 8 premium hvy for the UK! Taking 10% off the total price for each completed mission was smart idea. Hope its not prized too high.

Why is it done this way?  Because they make it easy enough for the average player to reach the 40% to 50% discount level and then feel good enough about the price of the tank to spend money and buy the thing.  If you want it for free, you have to be totally committed, but it's still doable... just gotta work for it.

I did the last one for the  Progetto M35 mod. 46 in my T92 HMC - it wasn't so bad. I got the tank for $5.99...Going to do this one in my WZ-111G FT should be easier.

If I'm reading you right, you did either the tier 10 mission or the xp requirements with your T92 HMC alone?  Not criticizing, just curious.  I enjoy my tanks but playing just one to do a marathon would get me a bit loopy!

It was done by xp requirements with the T92 HMC alone. I only had arties at the time.

WG shows it's not so smart yet again. Includes a faster route to make the grind easier. Makes the faster route available for only tier X vehicles. The tier X vehicles will have an easier grind already since they are top tier every game. Change it to tier 8-10 since 8's and 9's also meet 10's.

Like it. I am not going to unlock it for free but a guy can get a decent discount.

I guess I'm lucky I don't live in the Carolinas.
