World of Tanks: American TS-5 Tank Destroyer Marathon

In World of Tanks, there are many different tank destroyers, but there isn’t a single American Tier VIII Premium TD. Considering that the United States was one of the first nations in the game, it’s time this is fixed with a new Premium tank destroyer born in the USA! If you already play American TDs you’ll feel right at home with the TS-5 because it combines some of their best qualities.

Whether you’re a novice or an experienced Commander, the TS-5 is as sweet as apple pie:

  • High alpha damage (400 points) and a good rate-of-fire mean it’s got plenty of firepower
  • Stand strong behind 260mm of front armor (that’s 10.23 inches in American!)
  • A low profile and good concealment with high DPM mean you can hit hard and they’ll never see it coming!

The American Challenge: General Overview

This time your chase for the Grand Prize will last 10 days, running from 5 April to 15 April. The American Challenge features 10 consecutive stages to complete, fulfilling tasks for Mastery or for Commitment.

  • Missions for Commitment. The best option for players with a strong desire to get their hands on the outstanding TS-5. Task conditions will be diverse, but they must be performed using Tier VI – X vehicles. Just remember: Your result will only count if you finish in the top 10 of your team’s roster at the end of battle — no matter whether your team wins or loses.
  • Missions for Mastery. You can opt for alternative, but more complex tasks. Fulfilling these objectives will save you time, but you’ll have to give your all to succeed. You can only complete these tasks using Tier IX-X machines.

However, compared to the most recent challenge for the Panhard EBR 75, missions for Commitment will be modified. In addition, Wargaming slightly changed the distribution of some rewards for completing specific missions. But as before, finishing each stage will fill your vault with Credits, Personal Reserves, and Consumables.

The Fast Track

If you’re willing to try out the new experience immediately, you can head straight for the Premium Shop and purchase the whole bundle featuring all the rewards for each event battle mission and the TS-5.

Completing stages beforehand will give you discounts on the final price — 10% off for each stage completed — if you decide to purchase the bundle. For example, completing 5 out of 10 stages will knock 50% off the price. Purchasing the bundle gives you the full collection of rewards and automatically checks all event battle missions as completed, so you won’t be able to access them once you have the bundle.
