The popup message when receiving a gift

Not to be confused with the daily gifts.

Gifts are a feature in Tanki Online, allowing players to send custom messages to one another. Gifts were introduced during the New Years celebrations, in December 2015, and can be sent via in the "Special" section of the garage, where all available gifts are listed. The can be sent by players at the rank of Staff Sergeant or higher.

Mechanism

Each gift has its own price and look, and requires entering the addressee, and a message no longer than 250 characters; it is not needed to be someone's friend in order to send them a message.

When receiving a postcard, a popup message with a gift icon would appear in the targeted tanker's screen, with an option for viewing the postcard right away or closing the popup. All postcards that the player has received will be featured in a new section in their garage, under the "Gifts" tab, which is used as a mailbox, and will only be visible if the player has at least received 1 gift. Clicking a gift from the bottom rail under that section will display it on the right window of the garage (where description of items is normally displayed), displaying the gift name, the image of the gift, the name of the sender, the sending date and the custom message.

History

Gifts were announced on December 23, 2015,[1] and introduced on December 25, 2015, as part of the annual Holiday celebrations. There were initially 4 different gifts, which were removed on January 11, 2016.

On January 15, 2016, it was announced in the Tanki V-Log that permanent gifts, as well as some unique gifts for special events, will be introduced to the game. The gifts were added on January 27, 2016.[2]

On February 5, 2016, and until the 10th, the Brazilian servers of tanki had 3 special gifts for the annual Carnival Celebrations.[3]

On March 2, 2015, it became impossible for banned players to send a gift with a custom message. Instead, the gift would be added a predetermined text.[4]

Trivia

  • The various types of gifts a player has received and their quantities are listed in the player's statistics page.
  • The Blue Sphere was originally available for one day only in April 2011, though as a prop and not as a gift. The sphere actually did nothing, and the next day it was removed the garages of those who had bought it, in favor of a full refund for its price. The price was also 100,500 crystals, but since The Rebalance hadn't been implemented back then, the price is equivalent to 1,005,000 crystals of today's standards.
