Rewards for Merit
These special gifts drop with a certain probability when playing Tier V-X vehicles and are awarded for a strong performance in battle. With each drop, you can receive consumables, Bonds, Credits, and other in-game valuables. Please note: Rewards for Merit do not accumulate and open immediately at the end of a battle.
With Update 1.4.1, Wargaming is introducing a new feature, Blueprints. These are special content items you can get exclusively from Rewards for Merit, and can be used to get discounts when researching new vehicles. The higher the vehicle Tier, the more Blueprints that went into making it; your discount grows with every Blueprint you receive.
Thanks to this new type of customization, you can instantly replace your Crew members with either real historical figures or fancy, cool, and even slightly strange characters. All regions will have with their own sets of Crew Skins with predefined information (avatar/photo image, first and last name).
