Commanders! Update 5.6 will be released shortly, bringing with it a new customization option—avatars. You will now have one more way to show off in front of other players.
All avatars in the game are either permanent or temporary. Temporary avatars disappear within a certain period of time, specified in their description. Avatars, just like other in-game items, come in common, rare, epic, and legendary grades. The rarer the avatar, the more difficult it is to obtain!
Avatars can be earned for victories, participation in tournaments and game events, and for other achievements in the game. Avatars are also available in daily bonus containers or can be handed out as a gift upon purchasing certain bundles in the Store.
Upon receiving an avatar, you can add it to the Avatars tab in the Storage. After that, it will be visible:
- In the Garage, on the button leading to your Profile
- In the player profile
- On the battle loading screen and in battle
- On the battle results screen
In Update 5.6, the Record section will be renamed Profile.
As it’s December and New Year is on its way, the first set of avatars in the game will be devoted to this holiday. Besides these, Update 5.6 will feature an avatar devoted to the fourth anniversary of World of Tanks Blitz.
The holiday and Blitz avatars can be obtained from daily bonus containers.
Soon, more new avatars and ways to earn them will be available in the game—stay tuned! And, of course, share your impressions about the new feature. We’re looking forward to your feedback!
