The World of Tanks Players can expect the great arms race event from May 29th to June 12th.
The players and clans compete against each other and fight to get as many fame points as possible. These fame points vary according to the success in the battle and can be converted into research points. Research points in turn, investments can be made in technological upgrades.
These then - hopefully - lead to more success in the battle and thus to even more Fame Points.
The battles take place on a battlefield consisting of three consecutive fronts. Each of the fronts has different conditions and opportunities for gaining fame points.
For the clans it is now particularly important to find the most effective balance possible between fame points and investing in research points.
Here are the general rules from the World of Tanks developers. The more detailed competition rules can be found on the World of Tanks homepage:
