Wargaming is celebrating 100 years of tanks with a special World of Tanks: Blitz (Free) event that sounds like great fun. The celebration is all about the Mark I, the first tank to roll on a battlefield, so you’ll actually get your hands on one of those beasts rather than the technologically-advanced (for the time) WWII tanks we are so used to playing. So, in celebration of this event, WOT Blitz players will get to take control of a modified Mark I tank in a 7-7 battle. Once they complete 10 battles in the Mark I, players will get a special medal to remember the experience. Sounds like fun, and I’m curious to see how Mark I plays.
In honor of the anniversary, Wargaming put out a free Tank 100 app, created in association with the Tank Museum, that lets you experience an AR WWI tank. Neat idea. The event will start September 19th and will run for a week, so get ready to take that behemoth for a ride.
