World of Tanks

Meet the New Top of the Tree

Top of the Tree has been one of the best specials we have in World of Tanks, but with more and more Tier X vehicles added to the game, its harder to rotate between all of them and making sure we get the best out of it.

The last edition ended in November 2018 and it was by far the worse version of it as it didn’t offer much to players who already owned those tanks and forced them to play Tier X. Wargaming has decided to redesign the event and it will be back in March with exciting new prizes and discounts.

The concept, Discounts, Missions and Voting

The concept is the same, help players to climb faster their way up a branch, but this time instead of just getting a credit discount on these tanks, players will also be able to get big XP bonuses, a wide variety of missions with helpful rewards and more Crew XP.

The discounts will stay as they were:

  • 50% off the Tier II-V vehicles of the line
  • 30% off the Tier VI-X vehicles of the line

The missions are where the big change comes. Previously only rewarded playing Tier X vehicles, but now you will be able to enjoy these missions starting from Tier VI.

Voting will be another feature removed, as large parts of the Community voted for already popular vehicles, most of the benefits of the Top of the Tree special were lost. Now, each month, Wargaming will pick one tank they want to feature and payers won’t be able to vote at all.

Added Bonus?

If you are feeling particularly generous towards Wargaming, they will be also introducing a brand new feature: Top of the Tree Package. Players will be able to buy a package that increases their ability to have more x5 XP victory bonuses, three in total per day per vehicle, to help with their progress, and also get up to 25,000 XP boost for the Tier X vehicle.

Top of the Tree Package
  •  2 missions: x5 XP for each victory
  •  up to 25 000 XP for the Tier X vehicle

What do you think? Will Top of the Tree improve with these changes or do you miss the old days of getting more credits per battle on the featured branch? Let us know in the comment section.
