Frequently Asked Questions

How many Ground Events (missions) are planned? I missed three tank missions. I want to know whether I can get a KV-2 if I complete missions without skipping any?

 We have 17 ground vehicle missions and 28 aviation missions planned. If you missed 3 Events, you can still get the KV-2. We plan to return all previous missions to the store for a limited time, you’ll be able to buy the ones you’re missing. Keep an eye on our news!

If my Chronicles battle ended after 13:00 GMT when the missions had already been changed, will my completion progress still count?

 Yes, it will still count.

 Can you forewarn us on the vehicles for each stage so that we can level them up in advance?

 Focus on the vehicles that took part in the battles up to May 1945.

Do you plan to have a ‘break’ in completing these, say one day per week at least? I.e. days you can skip without losing opportunities to win prizes.

 Days like that have already been set within the event, i.e. you can skip several days and maintain your chance to get the grand prizes. We don’t have plans for additional days. The war waits for no one!

The event is awesome! But the battles in combined RB are overshadowed by an abundance of pilots. Could you place a limit on aircraft?

 Right now we’re developing various options for limiting vehicles in combined Realistic Battles based on the vehicles that actually fought in those battles in real life. We very carefully consider reviews about separate missions in a special thread on the forum. Just try to describe the problem in as much detail as you can. The actual function for placing limits is available to us.

In combined Realistic Battles, my enemy kills while piloting an aircraft aren’t counted.

 If you destroy a player’s tank while piloting an aircraft, this achievement contributes to the aviation mission progress.

If I complete 14 missions, will I get the Iron Duke and KV-2, or only the KV-2?

 If you complete 11 missions, you get the Iron Duke. When you complete your 14th, you get the KV-2. In other ways, they stack – after your 11th mission, you’ll need to complete 3 more, not 14 more. 

Do achievements in AB and RB stack or are they counted separately?

 They stack based on a multiplier. I.e. 1 kill in RB/SB is equal to two kills in AB.

So can I buy elapsed Chronicles rewards? I didn’t manage to complete the first mission for tanks. I wanted to buy it for Eagles, but they’re not for sale anymore. Please bring them back!

 We plan to return earlier missions to the store for a limited time, so you’ll be able to buy the ones you missed. Follow the news!

Can I get only one reward in a day, or can I get both a tank reward and an aircraft reward?

 You can get both a tank reward and an aircraft reward in one day. You don’t have to choose between them.

When can I see a full timetable of Events before the Chronicles of World War II event ends?

 The announcement of the Chronicles of World War II events timetable is published every week on Monday. You can see it here. 

Why are changes being introduced to the set of available vehicles and the numerical balance of sides before the start of the Chronicles event?

 All the events were balanced in previous launches. But because with each launch of the Events, different players participate in them with different gameplay styles, the balance of sides also changes. To make battles equally convenient for everyone, we keep a careful eye on the balance between victories and defeats and quickly correct the power of each side when necessary.

Why are there less Chronicles tank events than aircraft events?

 Each day is dedicated to a specific battle. If there were no large battles on the ground that day, then there’ll be no tank battle. The requirements for the amount of completed missions to get prizes takes into account the available ground Events.
