It’s around World Cup season once again, and that means everyone is wondering when the United States will care about soccer to the level of forgetting other sports exist. Do you need to have tanks? Because War Thunder is bringing you tank soccer. Yes, you can drive around in tanks which are also playing soccer. This is helped by the fact that it’s impossible to touch a ball with the hands of your tank, because your tank does not, strictly speaking, have any hands.
The event minigame will award participants with a special fiery soccer ball decal, so you’ll want to get in on the 3v3 random queues or the 4v4 squad queues if you want to forever have a burning soccer ball on the side of your tank. Also the whole thing will be called “football,” because the United States is the only country where it’s not called “football.” In summary, even if you can’t bring yourself to care about the sport, care enough to get an event reward.
