World of Tanks: Mercenaries to Get Special Events This September

Throughout the month of September, World of Tanks: Mercenaries players worldwide can close out the summer with a bang, with opportunities to unlock new maps, vehicles, prizes, and more. Summer vacations may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end too. So, here we go with what is coming. Take a deep breath and prepare to read.

The first major event of September is called Take Point. In it, players just need to jump into the game and complete daily Ops to rack up points. The more points earned, the more prizes unlocked. There are ten different types of prizes, ranging from Silver, Consumables, and Premium time, to a mighty Premium tank in the form of the Scourge Kirovets-1. Take Point will run until September 28.

Wargaming is also proud to observe Tankman Day, a national day of great importance in Russia which honors the role of tank crews of World War II. To commemorate this special day, players around the world will be able to earn triple XP on first victories on September 8 and a whopping 5x XP on their first win on September 9. There’s even a special Tankman Day Emblem available to add to tanks in the ‘Customization’ tab.

Players may additionally take part in the Fight For Your Academy event, which runs from September 19-23. All players will be randomly assigned to one of six Academies, with a special emblem voucher allowing them to champion an Academy’s colors while in battle. When ready for battle, they must work together with other players from around the world to prove that their Academy is the best. XP will be earned in battles throughout the event, and those who score the most completions for their Academy will be rewarded with Premium time and Crew Vouchers. 

Wait, there is more.

Alexander the Great wept when he had no more worlds left to conquer, but with a fan-favorite map returning to the Multiplayer battles rotation on September 18, players will have no such troubles. The quaint and secret hideaway in the mountains known as the Hidden Village returns. This place is not built for war, meaning players must tread carefully as they explore all of its strategic possibilities.

The Mercenaries roster continues to expand this month, offering even more Contracts to unlock powerful vehicles with unique Mercenary Crews at the helm. Players can take on tank Contracts that they may have missed to build the Mercenaries Tech Tree and earn the following tanks for free in the coming weeks:

  • SmoothMan (available September 18): A mobile Medium Tank with great armor. It’s captained by Blood Falcon, an all-American hero with an incredible fighting spirit.
  • Caboose (available September 18): A Light Tank that’s a potent union of Japanese and German engineering prowess. It’s manned by Hidden Death, a Chinese Mercenary who fights to protect and support his family.
  • Thresher (available September 25): A well-armored Light Tank with an aggressive weapon. It’s operated by Dark Fox, a New Zealander who served under British command during World War II before going rogue and seeking revenge against Axis forces.
  • Stubbs (available September 25): A reckless Light Tank that moves like a snake and strikes with the same rapid intensity. It was commandeered by Crazy Snake, an erratic, aggressive, and unhinged Mercenary who can distract enemies as his teammates go for the jugular.  
  • Bulwark (available September 25): A hulking Heavy Tank that can soak up a lot of punishment on behalf of its allies. It’s under the command of Exiled Wolf, a self-reliant and formidable American Mercenary.

And finally, the last tidbit, the very first Premium Mercenary vehicle is also available in the World of Tank: Mercenaries store until October 2. The incredible Trinity Mk II is a modified version of the tank that completed a daring mission in War Stories: The Heist, and it has plenty of hellraising new features to give it an edge on the battlefield. It has excellent defensive capabilities, with a triple layer of formidable spaced armor — making it one of the most well-armored Medium Tanks in the game. The Trinity Mk II is also captained by the Sonic Valkyrie crew, an Italian freedom fighter who can repair tracks quickly and has a lower chance of taking critical damage.

So, there you go, that was a heck of a lot of information to digest.
