March of the Samurai

Some of you tankers might be familiar with Royal Race and some of you may not. In layman's terms, playing enough battles in the new tanks rewarded everyone with prizes if they played over 25 battles. With Update 2.4 and the arrival of the new Japanese tank line, we're bringing it back. Get involved with the March of the Samurai!

The event will measure the number of battles played in the Type 3 Chi Nu, Chi To, Chi Ri, STA-1, Type 61 and STB-1. We've set a target of 500,000 battles - we're gonna smash that, right?

For your battles to count in these tanks, you must have played at least 30 battles in the new Japanese tanks - every battle thereafter will appear on the counter. Play that amount of battles (or more) and if we reach our goal, we will reward you for your efforts with 5 days of Premium and a garage slot.

This event starts as soon as the Update is live on 9 December and will run until around 3:00 CET (UTC+1) on 16 December, so get as many battles as you can in for the cause!

Please note - you will only receive this reward if you completed at least 30 battles in the new Japanese tanks.


Do I have to play 30 or more battles in a single tank or can I spread them across any of the new Japanese Tanks?

You can spread your battles across all the new tanks from the Tier V “Type 3 Chi Ni” to the Tier X “STB-1” only.

What happens if we hit the goal of 500,000 battles before 16 December? Does the event end?

Yes, then the event will end. SUCCESS!

What happens if I didn’t quite make it to 30 battles when we hit the 500,000 battles target?

Unfortunately you won’t receive the event reward – the early bird catches the worm!

What happens if we don’t reach the target?

Unfortunately no rewards will be given out, at all – teamwork is key!

Should we succeed, and I receive the reward for my 30+ battles, when will my 5 Days of Premium Account start?

They should start on 18 December.

Can I get the gold equivalent of the 5 days of premium instead?

Sorry, nope!

Where can I track my region’s progress?

Please visit the World of Tanks Blitz Portal.You should be able to see the progress bar featuring the STB-1.

How “real time” is the website battle counter?

Data will be refreshed every hour.

Will Facebook, Google Play, or Demo accounts have their battles count towards the goal and be able to receive the reward?

Of course.

Do all battles count win or lose?

Yes, they do.

Can I have the premium time delivered at a different date?

Sorry, this is unfortunately not possible to organise.

I contributed my 30 battles and my region reached the target, however I did not receive the Premium Account time. What do I do?
