[More details] Wargaming today announced that the revamped Global Map is now live, introducing the Clan Wars integration, a completely revamped interface, and a hugely expanded map. For those of you who do not know, Clan Wars is an online browser-based follow-up to World of Tanks (same account), and only players in clans (in World of Tanks) can participate in Global Map battles.
Strongholds and Global Map have been combined, allowing players to earn Influence. Influence is earned when battling for provinces and in Skirmishes, which can then be used to bid on locations, giving Clans a chance to claim an area on the map. Influence can also be invested into these regions, raising its Province Income, as well as purchase Divisions, autonomous units.
