How to participate

Fight in Arcade, Realistic or Simulator battles! After each battle, the necessary components for assembling the models can be found in “Workshop → Strategist”.

In the “Strategist” event you need to collect figures from components that you have obtained in battles and then use them in the offensive on the playing battlefield. Each completed offensive brings you classified documents which can be exchanged for exclusive versions of the game vehicles.

Key items

Modeling materials

This box contains components for assembling the figures. Open it after a battle.

  • Contains 8 to 10 units of the components.
  • Sometimes contains 1 ready-made figure.
  • No more than 40 units per day.

This data is necessary to start an assault on the main defence lane. Will be gathered in an offensive plan.

For every 10 minutes spent in battle (in a vehicle of rank II or above and with an in-game activity of 50% or higher).

No more than 40 units per day. (400 minutes of in-match time. ~7 hours per day).

Assault group

Soldiers capable of accelerating an assault on the main defence lane several times. Will be assembled in a company, battalion or regiment.

  • For first place at the end of a battle.

The modeling container and Intelligence can be obtained several times in one battle and the remaining accumulated time will be saved and transferred to the next battle.


Click “To the map” in the “Workshop → Strategist” window to get to the playing field. The offensive travels in 5 columns: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta and Echo. You need to complete them all.

Each type of enemy army will require a specific number of your forces and the time to complete an attack which can be done during the next game battle.

Your forces

Will be assembled from components. Press "Recipe" under the desired figure.

  • Can be assembled from components or created from reinforcements purchased on the market.
  • Deployed reinforcements can no longer be traded on the market.

Enemy forces

Enemy companies, fortifications, armoured vehicles and buildings. An attack on each of them reduces the number of your figures indicated in the description.

  • You can sabotage enemy structures and gain a useful bonus or advantage on the map.

Sabotage group

Unique forces that can not be assembled but can be rescued on the board every time you attack. Only they can sabotage buildings.

  • There will be three such groups on the map in each offensive.

Reinforcements require double the assembly material as ordinary figures, but they can be traded on the market.


An assault on the main defence line is available after the destruction of all enemies on five offensive columns, sabotage of three buildings and preparation of an offensive plan from separate intelligence.

If all conditions are met, all that remains is to wait and pick up the classified documents. They can be exchanged in the same card window for prize vehicles.

An assault can be significantly accelerated by using an assault company, battalion or regiment assembled from assault groups or purchased on the market.

To receive more valuable prizes it is necessary to complete the offensive and assault several times. Every subsequent offensive and assault will be held on the already explored map and will bring new classified documents. Have fun!

Before we start!

  • Please use the applicable mode tags to preface your opinions on a certain gameplay element! Vehicle performance differs greatly across modes like Arcade to Sim, so an opinion for one mode may be completely invalid for another!

  • Do not downvote based on disagreement! Downvotes are reserved for comments you'd rather not see at all because they have no place here.

  • Consider using the suggested sort of New. There's plenty of new and quite often repetative questions being asked or redirected here. Help the newbies out on this age old biannual grind tradition.
