So we now know the 2nd Battle Pass will be coming in 7.2, let's break the content down and find out how much value there is this time to speculate on the cost, will it go up?

 

First up, here's the video...

 

As before there are two tracks on the event, a free (presumably) track, and a premium track where if you buy the pass and complete the stages you'll get both the free and premium loot. 

 

Here are the rewards as listed in the video so far by stage.

Now assuming there is a free and a premium track as there was before, this is a summary what you get if you complete the event....

 

Completing all the premium stages would give you.....

Reward Gold Value
5x 1 Day Premium time 1,250
12 x5 XP Certificates

1,560

1,900,000 Credits 4,750
30,000 free XP 3,100
750 Gold 3,750
60 Epic Combat XP Boosters 2,175
60 Epic Cooldown Boosters 2,140
40 Epic Credit Boosters 1,444
45 Epic Crew XP Boosters 766
40 Epic Free XP Boosters 730
2 Rare Gold Boosters 70
4 Legendary Avatars 0
4 Epic Avatars 0
7 Epic Camos 0
13 Rare Camos 0
4 Credit Vaults ???
4 Free XP Vault ???
4 Gold Vaults ???
D.W 2 Collector Tank 1,500 (estimated)
Eraser BP44 3,500 (estimated)
Garage Background 0
Tier IX Credit Discount 0
Tier VII Credit Discount 0
Tier VIII Credit Discount 0
Tier X Credit Discount 0

 

So at the previous battle pass cost of £4.99, which is a gold value of 1,750...right away you can see how much you will be getting for that equivalent spend, and that's without the vaults that we don't have numbers available for yet. All of the zero value items, there is no price precedent for, they may be attributed value by WG, but we can't even guess what that might be.

 

Even if you just stockpile the gold, it's worth it already.

 

But let's just compare this list to the last battle pass that gave you the following....

 

 

7 Days premium time

1000 Gold

1,400K credits

55K Free XP

3 gold vaults

3 credit vaults

3 free XP vaults

The Covenantor collectible tank

17 Camos

9 Avatars

3 Certificate for a tier 8 research discount

3 Credit discount certificate

93 Cooldown boosters

13 Credit boosters

15 Combat XP boosters

10 Epic crew XP boosters

The Collectible KV-1S 

A Profile background - Changes the background of your stats screen

 

I would say it looks like the new Battle Pass has about 20% more value than the previous one. So instead of £4.99 I have a feeling this may come at around £6.99, but will obviously be very happy if it maintains the original price point.

 

WG doesn't value content by who needs or can use it. A new player would get a lot out of all of this content, a seasoned collector may see less value but would make use of most of the content potentially. But it looks like it will be good for pretty much everyone.

 

Let's break down what the free stages give you

Reward Gold Value
5x 1 Day Premium Time 1,250
3 x3 XP certificates 210
20,000 Free XP 2,000
250 Gold 250
650,000 Credits 1750
30 Rare Combat XP Boosters 720
45 Rare Cooldown Boosters 888
25 Rare Credit Boosters 390
30 Rare Crew XP Boosters 300
25 Rare Free XP Boosters 300
2x Common Avatars 0
3 Rare Avatars 0
6 Epic Camos 0
A Rare Camo 0
Tier IX Free XP Discount 0
Tier VII Free XP Discount 0
Tier VIII Free XP Discount 0
Tier X Free XP Discount 0


Again, compare that to the last battle pass......

 

4 Days premium time

400 Gold

400K credits

20K Free XP

3 Camos

4 Avatars

3 A certificate for a tier 8 research discount

 

So all in all there is more stuff, but it probably feels pretty similar in value, which makes me at least hopeful that this track should remain free and we don't end up with two-tier both paid model.

 

It's interesting how much more stuff WG give away, or at least make available very cheaply in events these days. The only exception being tanks....and we all know how that goes!

That’d be a decent deal for a fiver, gold alone would be more than worth it

Either way it is going to be a Ptw event.......even if it is not very much....but the time and effort really doesn’t help workers who have a RL!

As to the price....I am sure that WarGreedy, being amazed at the previous take up, will make it significantly higher than the £4.99 of the last time. With the previous experience of their boosting the cost of Premium tanks to actually “Buy”, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it well over the £10 mark!

I think they’ll stick at £4.99 or thereabouts.  The content isn’t costing WG anything, apart from some artwork and design tweaks and there was a tier 6 tank up last time.

 

An ARL equivalent is nice, it’s definitely one of the best all rounders at tier 6, just look at the tournament lineups.

 

It’s a ‘pay to play’ event, but the entry level is really low and they gave out free stages last time at a ridiculous pace.


Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

Lol theres a free path for u. It's not a P2W event. You're just toxic and want everything for free instead of admitting that this Battlepass has some great rewards in it, payed or not. Call crates P2W, call OP Premiums pay2win. But this Battlepass might be the fairest we will ever get and u salty [edited]has to hate WH for everything they do. U should be grateful that ppl pay FOR U. To play this game. We literally keep the servers running. And u ungrateful fck wont even accept an event where even free2play players get some good rewards.

I have a weird feeling about it. My guess is a Premium Battle Pass will remain at the 4.99 price, but we won't be able to finish all the 80 levels without paying for some more, just like it was in the last Halloween event and the infamous Folio (last 5 lvls). Otherwise BP will cost more than last time of course.
I'm a seal clubber and you can't do anything about it. I won't spam big tanks as long as big tiers are toxic as rivers near chemical factories  :child:

And just to point out that last time, you could skip a whole bunch of levels by paying WG, and then later found out they were giving away level skip codes for free like smarties.

 

Won't be falling for that one again!

Okay, does that mean, a free player like me has to buy this event at around £5.00 and then complete all the events to grab the rewards? Is it mandatory to complete the levels to get the rewards or we keep getting rewards as we progress through the event?

You get points (chips) for completing daily missions. With these chips you unlock stages. Some stages have vaults, you will fill those vaults with victories (like the €2.29 Gold Box). Even if you don't pay, you will fill the paid-path boxes (but you can't claim them until you pay). If you do pay, you get an additional daily mission (for 10 chips) which lets you advance quicker to the next stage.

The idea is that you can complete 3 to 4 stages per day by doing your daily missions. The event will be for 28 days.

I'd break your f2p rule for this event. The rewards last time were well worth it.
