I see some tanks that are gifts. How can one obtain such a tank? Do you have to earn some credits for it or what? (some are really nice I think)

Regards

you get them as promo codes from Wargaming ... for example at the Gamescom, or in some computer magazines maybe

I love Santa, and I want to become a Beta tester like you  :Smile-playing:

But where can I find what magazines they are in, or can you earn them as Beta tester?

beta tester is jsut what it says,

we tested teh beta (before the game was launched in april this year) and we got a gift sherman if we played atleast 1K battles in the beta.

no way of ebcomming a beta tester now since there isn't any beta test going on :)

the magazines have to be bought in a store IRL or online and you'll have to digg around online to see what edition has the code in it.

thanks you cannot get as of now anymore:

PZ V/IV pre-order medium package
A-32 pre-order light package
M6A2E1 pre-order Heavy package

these tanks were for ordering gold before game launch.

Pz V/IV Alpha

this tank is for mods and translaters from back in beta

sherman M4A2E4 aka beta sherman

for beeing in beta and having 1k battles in the beta.

KV-220

for russian beta testers

This.

Also some tanks (namely the M6A2E1, Pz. Kpfw. V/IV and A-32) were given as part of the gold packages you could buy before the game was launched live.
The M4A2E4 Sherman was a gift to all veteran beta players on the EU server.
KV-220 was given to russian beta testers. There is word that it's to be made available on the EU servers, but I don't remember where I've read it, so it might be just gossip.
The Pz 5/4 Ausf A was a gift to people who helped WG in various ways (IE in-game moderators)

I don't think you can get your hands on one of those, since this was a one-time giveaway. Some time ago the devs promised an ingame tank shop, so maby this will be a way to obtain such a vehicle.

EDIT: one thing to keep in mind when using promo codes is to check if they give you the bonus tank when applied to an existing account - I've read somewhere that in this case you'll only get the gold (if any) and to get the tank you need to create a new account with the code.

That was going to be in the European retail version, but they are advertising the Pz 38H735(f) so no idea if/when it is coming.  Not sure if it even exists in game.

These two tanks were scheduled for box version of WoT, but that was 1 year ago.
The boxed versions coming this month have a 38H instead, as gift tank.
The above tanks are still in the trees, so I belive they will come sooner or later as plain premiums/gifts/prizes or whatever.
