The 60th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s Legendary Flight: Let’s Celebrate Together!

Source: EU Portal

A significant date is coming. On April 12, the world will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first-ever manned spaceflight.

This event paved the way for humans to explore space. Yuri Gagarin became famous the world over and visited more than 20 countries. Several towns and streets have been named in his honor.

We will get into the details of Yuri Gagarin’s spaceflight preparation in our historical material, but for now let’s celebrate together!

To the Stars!

April 7 at 08:00 CEST through April 21 at 08:00 CEST (UTC+2)

Key to Ignition

To celebrate this remarkable date, we have prepared a special game event for you called “To the Stars!”. The missions you will find will not be difficult, but we ask for your full attention to get immersed into the atmosphere of the event. Make sure to claim your rewards on the dedicated website. You’ll find more info below.

The event will start on April 7 and will consist of two simultaneous activities.

Personal Progress

The first one is Personal Progress that will last from April 7 through April 19 and will consist of 5 Levels. During Personal Progress:

  1. You will earn Star Points, a special event currency, by completing special daily missions.
  2. Star Points will allow you to unlock Star Levels. These Levels will be unlocked sequentially from the first to the fifth and are not bound to any specific date. Completing daily missions on a regular basis directly affects their unlocking.

Unlocking each Level will bring you valuable in-game items: 1 day of WoT Premium Account, Crew Books, a new 2D style, and much more. The main reward for reaching the last Star Level of Personal Progress is Yuri Gagarin as a tank commander.

After completion of all daily missions, you will receive more than enough Star Points to unlock all Star Levels and get your hands on the main reward. Should the number of Star Points you have gathered not be enough to get the rewards you want, you will be able to purchase them in special bundles in the Premium Shop.

Battle Mission: To the Stars! Day 1

  • Once per account
  • Random Battles, Grand Battles, Ranked Battles
  • All vehicles Tier IV and higher

  • Play 2 battles
  • Be among the top 7 players on your team by base experience earned

Common Progress

The second one is Common Progress. It will last from April 7 through April 12 and consist of 5 Stages, the duration of each being 24 hours. Every player’s effort is important. During Common Progress:

  1. All Star Points you receive for completing missions are counted as your contribution to the “Star Point vault”. The progress of replenishing the “vault” is updated hourly.
  2. Every stage tells you about Yuri Gagarin’s life. The more stages you go through, the deeper you delve into the story.
  3. Each Stage requires a certain number of Star Points, which players should earn together within the allocated time. This will determine whether the story continues and if you receive your rewards.

Once you successfully complete five Stages of Common Progress, you’ll receive a x2 XP multiplier for each victory from April 12 to April 16 and a x5 XP multiplier for the first victory of the day in any vehicle from April 16 through April 19.

You will be able to follow your Common and Personal Progress, find out about the key moments in the life of Yuri Gagarin, view missions, and grab rewards on a special event website dedicated to the legendary spaceflight. The website will become active with the start of the first Stage of Personal and Common Progress.
You’ll need to spend earned Star Points to unlock Personal Progress Levels and redeem their rewards in the “Star Levels” section of this page. If you don’t claim them by the end of the event on April 21, any unused Star Points will expire and you will not be able to get your rewards. Common Progress rewards will automatically be credited upon login when the event is over.

Note that rewards for Common Progress will only be granted to those who have contributed to it by completing at least one mission (or purchasing a bundle with Star Points) during its active phase from April 7–12.


Unique decals, inscriptions, a commemorative medal, a new 2D style, and Yuri Gagarin with a custom voiceover as a commander of your vehicle—all these rewards can be earned during the game event on the special event website. The main condition is to complete as many missions as possible and earn the maximum number of Star Points for Personal and Common Progress.

Cosmic Commander

The commander’s skin is based on the famous photo of Yuri Gagarin in his orange spacesuit. He has the Brothers in Arms perk trained to 100% and enough experience to train one more perk or skill to 100%. This means that your vehicle will be led by a unique and battle-ready commander. His set of lines were reworked and recorded by a professional voice actor, mimicking the intonation and diction of the legendary cosmonaut.

The Soviet hero, Yuri Gagarin, will naturally be a commander for the U.S.S.R. He can be obtained only as a main reward for your Personal Progress.

“Orbiting Earth in the spaceship, I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!”

Stellar Style

The new First Spaceflight 2D style is based on the Vostok 1 spacecraft that carried Yuri Gagarin into Earth’s orbit.

Customization Elements

During the game event, you can get four retro-futuristic decals, the To the Stars! inscription, and a medal with the image of Yuri Gagarin.

In addition, from April 7 through April 21, the Premium Shop will offer a special series of bundles at great discounts. They will differ in contents and cost, but one of their main components are Star Points. They can be spent to purchase customization elements on the special event website, or to unlock Personal Progress Levels to receive commander Yuri Gagarin.

How to Use Star Points

During the entire game event, a special “Star Levels” shop will be available on the website where Star Points can be exchanged for unlocking Levels of Personal Progress with the Yuri Gagarin commander as the main reward, as well as getting additional rewards such as days of WoT Premium Account, decals, cosmic 2D styles, and much more.
