A new winter-themed game mode is on! Time to shoot some 8-bit tanks and enjoy the nostalgia!

Would be great if this time effort and money was put towards fixing the current list of issues on the SEA server :)

Ive got no idea why this didnt come out closer to Christmas, when a winter theme might make a little bit of sense in the Southern hemisphere.

 

But what do I know?

Not a lot of white Christmases' in the Southern Hemisphere unless with a have a new WG Antarctica Office.

 

Maybe we should have this mode in July.............winter?

Played this game-mode on the RU server when it was released last month. Why'd it take so long to hit the SEA server ?

The announcement says that we can use crews from other tanks on the Winter Showdown tanks, but it doesn't explain the penalties. Without penalty, can we use only crews from the T110E5, LTTB and Foch 155 respectively? Or are they like premium tanks, where we can use crews from the same nationality and class without penalty?

While it is true that I am heavily pixelated, thats more due to Japanese censorship laws than an inherent 8bit resolution.

They shipped the game mode via a literal ship.

Mm. Let's just thank the Lord Who Made You that even when we don't get down to 8-bit we don't need more than one pixel to...errr..."pixalte" you.

You can't say that he doesn't have a point though.

An excellent crew skill mode. 25 battles will get you the crew from nothing to ~45% second skill. They are short battles and you should make around 1M credits at the same time.
