Yet again, Wargaming leaks information on its own by mistake. This time was the World of Tanks ASIA team, publishing a video before it’s supposed to go live. WOT Express was quick enough to catch it and download it and release it again, but Wargaming has in the mean while released the articles as a response to the leak.
A brand new event called Under The Hammer will be coming next week, from January 14 through January 19. The event will bring five rare vehicles for auction, and players will have to place bids in Free Experience or Gold, depending on the region they are from. ASIA will be for Free Experience only, all other regions will be able to place bids in Gold too, to try and get the rare and unique vehicles
Very similar to what we usually see in the Black Market, where you place a bid and the top ones within the available number of tanks, will win it. What is new in this event is the Free Experience, never before have we seen an auction where you can use Free Experience to get a vehicle in an auction!
The video shows us several clues, but so far none of them seems to be clear enough for us to understand what possible vehicles we will see. Could the numbers under the hammer refer to the Tier of each tank? 10, 8, 10, 8, 10? Could the 53.6 in the first object relate to its reload time?
Free Experience is a good resource to have, helps unlock those painful stock tanks and get them straight away into decent status or they help you out grind that horrible Tier VIII you are grinding. Whatever the reason you might want to use it, will be it be something you would use to get a “rare” vehicle in World of Tanks? Let us know what you think of the clues and what possible rare vehicles we will see up for auction!
