The Polar Challenge: Hunt Down the Soviet Object 274a

8 min read

Announced a few days ago, now it’s official the Winter marathon tank and challenge has been announced! The Polar Challenge will start on November 27 and you will have to complete 10 intense Stages to earn the Tier VIII Object 274a, a brand-new Soviet Premium medium tank for free, or with a juicy discount. Of course, if you decide to just go for the hard experience grind, a total of 254,000 base experience needs to be collected! The best option is to always try to combine missions for commitment and missions for mastery, that way, you could save a bit of experience grind.

The Polar Challenge

November 27, 2020 at 09:00 CET (UTC +1) through December 7, 2020 at 09:00 CET (UTC +1)

Grind Experience or Use Skill

As previous marathons, The Polar Challenge will last 10 days and involve 10 consecutive Stages. To make the Challenge more dynamic, there are two ways to collect the rewards: missions for commitment and missions for mastery.

Both sets of tasks can be fulfilled simultaneously (given that all conditions are met), so it doesn’t matter how you progress to the next Stage. The mission that is completed first will count towards your progress to the next mission on either path.

  • Missions for commitment: the best choice for commanders with a strong desire to get their hands on the Object 274a. The diverse task conditions must be met using Tier VI–X vehicles. Remember: your result only counts if you are one of the top ten players by experience earned on your team at the end of a battle, no matter whether your team wins or loses.
  • Missions for mastery: alternative, but more challenging, tasks. Fulfilling these objectives saves you time, but you must push yourself to the limit to succeed. You can only complete these tasks using Tier IX–X vehicles.

Regardless of the path you choose, you can win tons of rewards, including equipment items, Personal Reserves, consumables, and more!

Earn Even More Rewards

You can also unlock daily post-progression missions. These tasks are exclusively performed in the Object 274a in Random Battles. They will reward you with days of WoT Premium Account, x5 XP missions, and a load of Personal Reserves. Three post-progression missions will bring you even greater prizes, including Training Manuals and more days of WoT Premium Account, so push yourself to the limit to grab them! Don’t miss out!

The faster you get the Object 274a (either by completing the 10 Main Stages of the Challenge or purchasing it), the more rewards you can earn in the post-progression. Let’s take a closer look.

  • Daily post-progression missions are unlocked on November 27, the first day of the Challenge.
  • Every day, you will have access to one new mission with its own set of rewards.
  • You can only complete one mission on any given day, and once completed, it becomes unavailable. You cannot catch up with skipped missions from previous days, so the earlier you start, the more missions you can complete. Missions renew daily at 06:00 CET (UTC +1). You can check their conditions and track your progress in a separate tab via the Challenge interface.

  1. No bias at all. Perfectly balaned. High speed, russian heavy armor, high pen, high alpha, tier X gold ammo, superturret.

    Time to remove the other tech trees? Maybe leave them as PvE bots, since they are becoming more and more useless?

    1. That high speed can be deceiving, the specific power is lower than the T-44-100 or the T-54 Proto, so I bet it will be sluggish. Hull armour is very weak, anything can pen it and the gun handling is quite mediocre if not bad…

    2. Thanks for the reply!
      I was checking the armor in tanks.gg and even if its 200+ frontal in even ground (good luck penning it with anything lower than tier 8), the slightest elevation is an auto ricochet. its quite strong. hull down is way too strong, more than many heavies.
      Speed, I saw a video and it was going at a standard 40 something.
      Firepower, it’s a russian gun, so we all know what that means in reality, not paper. My KV2, OBJ430 ans ISU-152 hit more than my Conway or my Skorpion! Also, with food and BIA it reaches 2700 DPM.

      I still believe it’s OP as russian hell comparing it with all other mediums, premium or not. It’s a fast heavy!

    3. IIRC this is the same gun as on the KV-4. I wouldn’t call that a Tier X gun.
