Happy Chinese New Years everyone!
I hope everyone got a chance to get the Katyusha, ASU-57 (smol Polina), and PT-76! They are wonderful additions to any team. Now that the event is over, we can move onto the next big thing… Chinese New Year! We are celebrating with new tanks and event.
Remember how HQ wanted you to collect those silly Jingle Bells? Well Chinese Lanterns are all the rage now! To decorate the Headquarters building in time, they need all deployed platoons to find as many Lanterns as possible… and they will reward you kindly for them. Check out the full rewards list in-game. Key milestones:
- 1500 Lanterns = Type 62, Hong
- 3000 Lanterns = WZ-111, Xifeng
Unit Locking is in!
Check out the new feature everyone has been wanting – unit locking! Press the little lock icon in the top right corner of a unit’s detailed screen. As long as they have the lock symbol on them, you can’t recycle or scrap them in Upgrading and Recycling.
Read up on the patch notes below. There were balance changes too, so read up on those!
