  • Celebrate St. Patrick's Day and March Madness in World of Tanks

    World of Tanks
    Throughout March, Wargaming wants to celebrate both St. Patrick's Day and March Madness in World of Tanks on consoles. Starting on March 16, new in-game events will be unleashed, plus new content, and special missions.

    Players can look forward to "The Luck of the Irish Op" from March 16-18. Players can earn free War Chests that include "a random selection of treasure and goodies for every ten battle victories they secure."
    World of Tanks’ latest Premium Hero also comes from the Emerald Isle. Available until April 2, the Banshee Comet is an Irish soldier that puts an interesting and unique spin on a true fan favorite. Taking its name from a mythological creature found in Irish folklore, the Banshee Comet combines incredible mobility, devastating impact power and pinpoint precision. Early adopters can benefit from an exclusive Op included with all Banshee Comet bundles, which gives a 25% boost to Crew XP earnings to every tank while active.

    For the March Madness fans out there, a Tank Madness tournament will take place. Czechoslovakia takes on China in a battle from March 16-18. Sweden takes on the United States in the final bracket on March 23-25.
    Players can join the fray every weekend for the chance to earn Silver currency, Premium time and access to additional special Ops. And for commanders who can’t get enough of Tank Madness, the Final IV tournament awaits at the end of the month and lasts from March 30 - April 1. This special competition pits the victors from each bracket in March against each other. Commanders who back the winning team can look forward to flying the flag for that nation, with a Hero Flag tank available as the ultimate prize.

    Wargaming also notes that the Chinese vehicles WZ-1201G FT and WZ-111 will be added to the World of Tanks store starting March 20. They are also going to be released in a Mega bundle, or sold separately in Ultimate, Loaded, and Base bundles on April 9.
    The WZ-120-1G FT boasts high speed and heavy armour, for players looking for high agility and defensiveness in battle. The WZ-111 follows as a fast and furious heavyweight, rocking an almighty weapon that’s primed for maximum damage in the thick of battle.
