Дата: 05.07.2018 19:17:45
Gnomon: Hi, everyone! With the recent release of the Battle of Kursk Event, I thought I'd make a quick F.A.Q. for questions I've seen on the forums and to centralize a bit of info. I apologize for the wall of text, but I wanted to get as many questions in as possible. Hope this helps! Q: When can I play the Battle of Kursk event? A: Remembering Kursk is a 50-day challenge. The event starts today, July 5th. It will end on August 23rd. Q: So, what type of event is this? A: The Battle of Kursk event is a chain of missions that rewards daily points that add up to reward you with prizes. A new mission will be unlocked daily with two paths for completion, North and South Directions. Q: What can I get from taking part in the event? A: The main rewards are a commemorative medal, the T-34 shielded, and a special Kursk-dedicated style that you can apply to any tank in your Garage. You can also earn things like consumables, Premium Time, and equipment! The Point-based rewards can be found below: Event Rewards 5 Points 1 Day Premium Account 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5x Large First Aid Kits Kursk Event Medal 10 Points 1x Enhanced Gun-Laying Drive 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5x Large First Aid Kits 15 Points 1x Coated Optics 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5x Large First Aid Kits 20 Points 1x Large-Caliber Tank Gun Rammer 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5x Large First Aid Kits 30 Points Tier VT-34 shielded with a 100% crew and a unique style 1x Garage Slot 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5x Large First Aid Kits 40 Points 7 Days Premium Account 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5xLarge First Aid Kits 50 Points A style applied to any of your vehicles 5x Automatic Fire Extinguishers 5x Large Repair Kits 5x Large First Aid Kits Q: Does the 30 Point reward tank come with Crew? A: The T-34 shielded rewarded at the 30 Point mark comes with 100% Crew, as listed above. Q: What is the T-34 Shielded? A: Well, it's based off the normal T-34 but the T-34S has additional armor screens on the sides of the hull and on the turret. It comes with a 76mm gun, and APCR ammo as its standard round. Here is a little bit of info on the history of the tank: "The T-34 shielded was one of the projects to improve armor of the T-34 series tanks. This variant of shielding was developed by engineers of Research Institute-48 and Plant No. 112 under the supervision of I. Burtsev. During the field trials, the armored screen sides were able to withstand fire from 37mm and 50mm anti-tank guns but were penetrated by Armor-Piercing 88mm and 75mm shells. All manufactured prototypes were sent to the front and lost in battles." Check out its Tankopedia entry here for more info and stats: T-34 Shielded Q: What modes can I complete missions in? A: You can complete the missions in Random Battles (Standard, Assault, Encounter) and Grand Battles. Q: How do I complete missions and play in the event? A: The mission requirements will be listed for you each day, and you will have to option to complete either the North or South Directions. By completing missions, you earn points for the event. Q: Can I complete both Directions for the same daily mission? A: No. Once you finish either the North or South Direction requirement, the mission for that day is done and the other Direction cannot be completed. Q: What is the difference between the North and South Directions? Which should I do?! A: Well, first off, they provide the same rewards for the daily mission. The North Direction missions can be completed using any tank Tier IV and higher (but not those used for the South Direction), but the Northern mission requirements will be a bit more difficult to complete. South Direction missions can be completed in the tanks that took part in the Battle of Kurk, and the mission requirements will be slightly easier than the North. Q: Which tanks can I use for the South Direction? A: Those tanks can be found in the drop-down below: Vehicles for South Direction The following vehicles can be used to complete the South Direction: Germany Marder 38T StuG III Ausf. B Grille Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H StuG III Ausf. G Hummel Nashorn Panther Tiger I Ferdinand U.S.S.R. T-60 M3 Light T-70 Churchill III KV-1S SU-85 T-34 T-34 Shielded SU-152 Q: When do new missions become available? A: A new mission will become available to you each day that the event is live. Q: Where can I view my mission and event progress? A: Your event and mission progress can be viewed in the game client. There should be an extra mission flag at the top of your Garage that will take you directly to your progress and the event page. Q: Can the style on the T-34 shielded be removed or put on other tanks? A: The style that comes with T-34 shielded is unique and cannot be removed from the T-34S or placed on other tanks. Q: Can I remove the style rewarded from earning 50 points? Can it be applied to other tanks? A: The style can be applied to any Tier I-X tank. Q: Do you have any articles or videos that explain more about the event? A: Sure do!
