What happens to tanks after they are destroyed? Can I see how the battle ends?

A destroyed vehicle will remain smoldering on the battlefield until the end of the battle. Its unlucky pilot will have a choice between going back to the hangar and entering another battle in a different tank, or staying in the current battle as a spectator and enjoying the advantages of the free camera mode. A spectator can switch between ally tanks and watch the battle unfold until one of the sides wins. 


Where do the battles take place geographically?

Currently four geographical locations are represented in the game: Iraq, Korea, Pripyat and Arizona.


What should I know about the environment?

The environment is remarkably destructible. It adds to the game's realistic feel and makes gameplay more dynamic. It doesn't directly affect the way your tank operates.


How do I level up?

A player earns Valor points by participating in battles. When you get enough points, your Valor level increases, and you unlock new vehicles. Another important factor is Mastery, which also increases through participation in battle. Higher Mastery allows you to outfit your tank with more advanced equipment.


How do I upgrade tanks?

Every battle you participate in earns you experience, regardless of the outcome of the battle. Experience determines your Mastery, i.e. your ability to use these vehicles.


What is Tank Domination's financial system?

The game's currencies are credits, which the player earns by participating in battles, and Warbucks, which are in-game purchases. Certain bonuses can only be bought with Warbucks. These bonuses give players an edge but do not guarantee a decisive advantage in battle.


How many tanks can I have in the hangar at once?

The hangar will always expand to accommodate all your available tanks, but storage space for each new tank must be purchased separately.


How does matchmaking work?

All tanks are divided into balanced groups according to access levels, which correspond to players' overall progress in the game. A battle begins when both teams have enough members from each group. Several criteria are used to ensure that members of these groups are relatively equal in terms of tank strength and class.


Do the players of the losing side also get credits?

The losing side will get their share of credits as a consolation prize, but significantly less than the winners. The winning team is always rewarded, and individual bonuses are given to outstanding players for their contributions to the battle.


My tank was broken when I left battle. Why?

A tank can be damaged after a battle ends, because it took damage in battle. You can repair damaged tanks in the hangar by pressing the tank button. You can also turn on autorepair, so you don't have to go through this procedure every time.


What does "Vehicle in Battle" mean?

Once a tank enters the battlefield, it will stay there until the battle has ended, at which point it will return to the hangar. If you quit a battle before it ends, you will need to choose a different tank to enter another battle or purchase a new tank.


How do I buy and sell tanks?

You can buy tanks by pressing the All Tanks button, but think ahead about how much space you have in your hangar. You can sell tanks in the hangar too. Go to the depot and select the tank you want to sell, then press the Sell button.


What is Free Experience, and how do I use it?

When a battle ends, you receive Mastery points, some of which are converted into Free Experience. When your tank reaches level 16, you begin to accumulate Free Experience, and all Mastery points received for piloting this particular tank will be converted to Free Experience. You can use these points to improve another tank and speed up its overall upgrade. You will need to spend some Warbucks to use Free Experience. You can see the amount of Free Experience available by pressing the eagle icon in the upper left corner of the hangar screen.
