Scenarios

Battle of Luzon  (Japan - USA)

This new scenario involves naval forces. Occurring on the 22nd of December 1941, US troops in the Philippines pose a serious threat to the advancement of Japanese troops to the South, and that’s why the seizure of the Luzon island is important to the Japanese forces’ plans to gain dominance in South-East Asia.

Kerch–Eltigen operation  (USSR - Germany)

This new scenario involves naval forces. Occurring on the 31st of October 1943, Soviet forces prepared the largest landing operation on the Eastern Front to liberate the city, the port of Kerch, and the port of Kamysh Burun, and create a springboard for the further liberation of the Crimean peninsula from German invaders.

Battle for Caen  (Britain — Germany)

Occurring on the 26th of June 1944. One of the main targets for the allies in operation Overlord was the capture of the city of Caen as well as the nearby Carpiquet airfield.

Nordwind  (USA — Germany)

Occurring on the 1st of January 1945. Despite significant losses in the Ardennes, German command expected to break through the allies’ defensive line via an unexpected counterattack in the Vosges and on the Alsace plain.

World War mode for novices

World War mode is open to all players, but its most interesting features and valuable awards are only available for squadron players. You can join a squadron at any time, or even create your own to get access to the additional season awards, and you may even be able to complete the tasks faster!

In World War mode, large squadrons can fight against each other in various operations, with each battle potentially bringing them closer to victory. For players who aren't squadron members, World War mode opens many new mission types with special rules and rewards. All players who have achieved rank III are able to participate in World War battles.

Click to unfold

Participating

Expand the game mode selection under the button “To Battle” and select “World War”.

In the World War tab, the “All battles” button will open the list of all battles in which you can participate. Also found in the menu are the leaderboard lists, which are useful for squadron players and their commanders, as well as the operation filter if you want to fight for one particular squadron or to participate in a single scenario.

“All battles” are sorted by mission type. Red icon - this battle is already in progress. Yellow icon - this battle will start shortly. Gray icon - this battle has already reached the maximum number of players.

Preparation for the battle

Select the battle to proceed to the preparation phase. At this stage, you need to put the vehicles needed for the battle into your vehicle slots.

The composition of each army is represented by vehicle groups and their numbers. Place one vehicle from each vehicle group into the vehicle slots. If you have already purchased vehicles represented in the vehicle groups, you will be able to choose those vehicles instead, if preferred. If you haven’t purchased represented vehicles, you will still be able to use one vehicle from each of the vehicle groups, but without possibility to choose.

To simplify the arrangement of the vehicles, use the button “Generate vehicle preset”. The algorithm will select the vehicle with highest BR for each vehicle group and will place them in the most optimal vehicle slots (based on crew skills).

After completing the preparation phase and placing vehicles into the vehicle slots, you can then proceed to clicking the “To Battle” button and wait for the battle to begin.

In the battle

At the beginning of the battle, each player will receive one or more vehicle units randomly selected from the army. If you lose your vehicle, it will be immediately replaced by another randomly selected vehicle.

This information is especially important for squadron members! Each vehicle lost in the battle will be deducted from its group and the army as a whole.

By fighting in World War mode, you earn respawn points which will not be lost between the battles and will give you the ability to use desired vehicles of the army - the best vehicles for the best fighters!More about World War on our Wiki
