New Year’s Adventure: How to Decorate the New Year Tree

Can you hear that sound of crunchy snow? Someone is walking heavily through the woods. Or maybe they’re carrying something heavy?.. Oh look, it’s a fluffy New Year tree! And now that we have a tree, all we need is a festive atmosphere. The more beautiful and richly decorated your New Year tree is, the better the world will be the more gifts you will receive!

How Does It All Work?

Use XP multipliers to earn Cards and get the Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm. Open Candy Boxes and exchange Cards for Candy Canes, which will help you decorate your New Year tree. For decorating your New Year tree, you will get a new tank, an avatar, attachments, and other rewards. And don’t forget to keep your eyes on the Auction and spend Lucky Tickets in the Lucky Draw where you can win two new tanks: the uncatchable XT-22 medium and multifunctional XT95E6.


So, our job now is to understand how to decorate the New Year tree. New Year’s magic is fuelled by joy. And what brings us joy? Candy, of course! Especially Candy Canes!

Candy Stories

During the event, bundles with candy will be available in the Store. Each box of candy contains, with a different drop chance, a Lucky Ticket that allows its holder to participate in the Lucky Draw and win rare vehicles. You can also get Candy Canes, warpaints, and other bonuses from these bundles. Let’s open these precious boxes!

Collecting Cards

On the in-game event screen, you’ll see a series of stages with the VIPz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm as a reward and seven independent stages with Candy Canes as a reward. You need the latter to decorate the New Year tree. The stages are completed using Cards.

Do you like signing Cards? If not, that’s okay, because gnomes and elves have already taken care of this in World of Tanks Blitz. They put the warmest New Year wishes on lovely Cards, so you just need to collect them. You can earn Cards by using XP multipliers—daily XP bonuses. Each multiplier will bring you 2 Cards and each multiplier—5 Cards.

You’ll additionally receive:

  • +1 Card for an active Premium Account.
  • +1 Card for playing in a platoon.
  • +1 Card for playing on vehicles from the New Year’s Auction.

Thus, each victory can bring you up to 8 Cards. You can earn Cards through January 6. The bonus for your first victory will be activated twice: from December 19 through December 20 and from January 4 through January 5.

After you have collected a stack of Cards, exchange them for Candy Canes and proceed to decorating your forest beauty!

Creating a Festive Atmosphere

When you log in to the website for the first time during the in-game event, you’ll see a sad and lonely New Year tree. You’ll have a lot of work to do! From December 18 through January 10, you’ll be able to give it a brand new look.

Santa will take the New Year tree back home:

  • Europe: on January 10, 14:00 (CET).
  • North America: on January 10, 5:00 (PT) / 8:00 (ET).
  • Asia: on January 10, 21:00 (UTC+8).
  • CIS: on January 10, 16:00 (MSK).

There are slots on the right side of the screen. Tap them and select one of the three attachments for each of the five slots: tree topper, fairy lights, baubles, firecrackers, and gifts. Later, you’ll use your Candy Canes to improve each element (up to level 10 each). The more beautiful your New Year tree is, the greater the number of rewards waiting for you under it!

You can also change the background of your New Year tree and the color of its branches (New Year tree camouflage). To do so, go to the New Year tree settings menu by tapping the icon. You can get alternative backgrounds and camouflages from Candy Boxes. Please note that these changes do not increase the rating of your New Year tree.

What’s in Santa’s Sack

To earn Santa’s favor, you need to make your New Year tree really beautiful. For advancing through each of the six New Year tree progress levels, you’ll receive gifts. The main prize—the new XT-22 medium.

Under the New Year tree, you’ll also find Lucky Tickets, attachments, legendary warpaints (such as Menacing for the KV-2, Pit Bull for the M48A1 Patton, and Bear for the IS-3), a Christmas Wreath Avatar, a Commemorative Token, a Certificate for 24 hours of Premium Account, credits, and New Year’s Garage improvements.

New Attachments

Upon receipt of rewards earned for decorating the New Year tree, a special item will be sent to your Storage. When this item is activated, an attachment will be installed on the vehicle. Under the New Year tree, you’ll find five new attachments: Ladder, Lucky Dice, Field Kitchen, Music Lover, and 24 Frames.

folder:668def2c-ff68-4b2f-8d6f-f2e8df794254

All five attachments will be awarded for the following 10 tanks: the IS-3, IS, SU-152, ISU-152, T49, Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger, LTTB, Tiger II, AMX 13 75, and Tiger I. If you don’t have any of these vehicles in your Garage, the items will remain in the Storage until you receive one and activate the attachment.

If you try hard enough, you can get up to 50 attachments.

Commemorative Token

The proud title of Honorary Decorator of the New Year Tree will be awarded to all players who reach level 5 of the New Year tree during the New Year’s Adventure event. To feast your eyes on the reward, go to Profile > Rewards > All > Commemorative Tokens.

Improving the Garage

During the New Year’s Adventure, your collection of vehicles will be temporarily moved to a comfy snow-covered valley. The more beautiful the New Year tree on the website, the cozier the Garage becomes: more festive attributes, decorations, and warmth.

folder:9cefcc1c-4a59-48db-9a53-0f48cc32aa94  

The Garage is improved automatically: when you claim your reward on the screen with the New Year tree (levels 2–6), the Garage changes.

Avatars

For reaching level 6 of the New Year tree, you’ll get a Christmas Wreath Avatar.

During the New Year’s Adventure event, you’ll also be able to get other festive avatars, such as:

Royal
Snowflake

Silver

More New Year Fun

On the screen with the New Year tree, you’ll see buttons that will navigate you to the Auction, where you can purchase rare vehicles. Prices are falling, and tanks go like hot cakes! In the Lucky Draw, you’ll have a chance to get even rarer vehicles in exchange for Lucky Tickets. The new XT95E6 is among them.

In the Rating tab on the website, you can see who’s the coolest decorator among your friends and clanmates.


Commanders, you are now ready to rush into the game and seek out Candy Canes, valuable gifts, and new tanks! And, of course, we wish you all a very happy New Year!

*Jingle Bells playing, fluffy snowflakes gently falling on the fir branches, the aroma of cinnamon and tangerines is in the frosty air.*
