Christmas frost outside - it is time to decorate the Christmas tree and happily wait for the New Year. These winter days are the time of Christmas miracles, fun and gifts. Miracles we will leave to Santa but the fun and gifts will be provided by us!

Everyone gets gifts!

2023 is the year of the rabbit, so we’re giving out a traditional decal to all players. All you need to do is just to perform 3 battles! Don’t miss the decorations for ground vehicles and naval.

Remember last year's Christmas deer? This year we've added a Christmas sleigh for it! By the way, you can get the deer from the Ice chest or buy it on the Marketplace!
