New competition mode: Rush
10/11/2022 - Calling all commanders! World of Tanks introduces a brand new competitive game mode: Rush. From October 12 to November 21, commanders will have the opportunity to compete against other players with the same rating.
Battles in Rush will be held in 7x7 format and only with level X vehicles. The mode offers many new gameplay mechanics and among the numerous rewards players will find unique progressive 2D styles that will highlight their unique achievements.
New gameplay mechanics have been implemented to ensure that the mode provides the optimal environment for tankers to compete on a level playing field. All changes are aimed at further improving the competitiveness of Ansturm. The matchmaker selects both allies and opponents for teams based on the mode's ranking system. During the pre-battle countdown, players can select a different Tier X vehicle in the lobby or switch to a different set of equipment, grenades and consumables.
All vehicles in this mode have their own roles, and each role has a unique ability with three charge levels that players can use to develop and utilize special strategies during combat. Instead of the classic three-player platoons, Ansturm features two-player squads and the ability to form a team of seven commanders and fight against an enemy Super Platoon.
To make battles even more unpredictable, Ansturm will include the "fog of war" mechanic. At the beginning of a battle, teams will not know the location or strength (i.e. vehicle types and models) of the opposing forces until they are discovered.
The exciting mode offers two series of rewards. The first tier offers a unique progressive 2D style, dog tag elements and more, and is based on the player's rank. The second offers more traditional, valuable rewards such as bonds and equipment and is based on the number of victories.
