Update 1.6: Join the Common Test!

A new wave of Common Tests introduces high-tier British light vehicles and brings some improvements to Personal Missions. You’ll also have new opportunities for unique customization thanks to rectangular decals and other items. Finally, to allow you to better focus on the game, we’re disabling team damage and team kills caused by friendly fire and ramming.

Read on for a detailed overview of each feature!

High-Tier British Light Tanks Are Coming!

The Brits are receiving reinforcements, and it’s not a cup of tea or pudding - it’s a whole new branch of vehicles!

We know that among players of World of Tanks there are many fans of British tanks, and there is a vehicle for every Commander in this nation. You can pick a versatile medium tank, a heavy frontline brawler, or a tank destroyer from 2 branches. The only class the Brits have been lacking so far is high-tier light tanks.

Update 1.6 will correct this as four undetectable and menacing light British tanks, from Tier VII to Tier X, are going to storm the battlefields of World of Tanks! Researching the new light sub-branch will follow on from the Tier VI Cromwell.

One of the main features of these new light tanks is their size; they’re even smaller than the French light vehicles. They will sit among the smallest vehicles in the game and will only slightly exceed the ELC Even 90 in size. It will be very difficult to spot them, and even if you do, it will be difficult to hit them, especially when they’re on the move.

Also, British light tanks will have:

  • Good view range
  • Excellent dynamics
  • High concealment rate
  • Guns with big alpha damage, but mediocre DPM. These vehicles are more suitable for firing when stationary, not while driving.

Together, these characteristics make the new British vehicles very good scouts. This combination of view range, concealment values and tiny size is truly unique to our game, so the new Brits are ideal for both active and passive spotting.

All these vehicles are entirely historical, except for the Tier X tank – we had to modify it a bit. Also, they will all have an extravagant design that will make them instantly recognizable on the battlefield. Time to take them for a ride, Commanders! 

More details about the new British tanks and their gameplay will be released later.

Personal Missions Tweaks

We continue our consistent work on rebalancing Personal Missions. This time we carefully analyzed statistics from the missions of the third operation of the second campaign, which rewards you with the Object 279 early. We also carefully reviewed your feedback and your suggestions for this operation.

As a result of this research, we've decided to simplify the conditions of about 40 missions in total – now they’ll require less time and effort to achieve. To complete them successfully, you will still need solid game skills, but they are no longer as complex as before.

Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions on any of the operations in the second campaign!

We’re also changing the conditions of missions for SPGs.

After rebalancing the SPG class earlier this year, we knew that we would have to tweak missions for this class, but we didn't have enough data to make specific decisions yet. It took time to analyze how the changes in the gameplay mechanics would affect the statistics of SPGs. Based on these changes, we're now ready to rebalance the missions.

We’re making these missions more relevant wherever required, and reducing the stun conditions in accordance with the new SPG stun mechanics. Keep an eye out for a dedicated article detailing all the changes to Personal Missions in the coming days.

Customization Update

Any commander can give their tank a more spectacular look thanks to decals. However, many of you complained that the interface for interacting with decals in the game client was not very intuitive. For example, players could move a decal after applying it to a specific part of the hull, but the movement was quite unpredictable.

After reviewing your feedback and running a lot of tests, we’ve updated the interface to allow you to easily:

  • Move the selected decal to another location and see how it looks there
  • Rotate or remove it from the tank with a couple of clicks

We’ve also added tooltips to the Garage interface. They will provide guidance on which sections you can choose a decal from, on which part of the tank you can apply it, etc.

In addition, we're introducing new rectangular (multi-dimensional) decals. They will be available for Tier X and Tier VIII Premium vehicles and can be applied to specific spots on each vehicle, such as the entire side of the tank. Positions for decals can differ from tank to tank.

Moreover, we're adding a fresh set of “classic” square decals for Tier X and Tier VIII vehicles and new fonts for Personal Numbers.

Finally, you can see detailed information about some of the available styles in the game client. Simply apply the style and click the info button to find out more about it.

Disabling Friendly Fire/Damage

Starting with Update 1.6, friendly fire/damage will be disabled in Random Battles. We’ve gathered and carefully reviewed your feedback on disabling friendly fire after the start of Frontline last year, and now we are ready to extend this practice to all Random Battles (Standard, Encounter, Assault and Grand Battles).

To allow you to better focus on the battle and reduce the impact of unsportsmanlike conduct on gameplay, we’re disabling team damage and team kills caused by friendly fire and ramming. However, artillery can still stun allied vehicles, and doing so will incur an experience penalty. SPGs can also receive the status of "team-killer" and be destroyed by allies without penalty.

The same rule applies to vehicles of other classes. Despite friendly fire/damage being disabled, it is still possible to be marked as a “team-killer”. Players who attempt to attack allies will lose their immunity to allies’ shots and ramming, and may be destroyed without penalty.

Get out there and experience all the new features, Commanders! We can’t wait to hear your feedback!

Main Changes

Personal Missions Tweaks

  • Rebalanced the Personal Missions within the Object 279 (e) operation.
    • Conditions of 22 missions have been adjusted.
    • 2 missions have been changed while keeping the player's progress within them (with the 1 to 1 conversion). 
  • Rebalanced a number of missions for SPGs (within both campaigns).
    • 12 missions for SPGs have been changed within The Long-Awaited Backup campaign.
    • 5 missions for SPGs have been changed within the Second Front campaign.

Vehicle Customization

  • Added detailed information about some of the available styles in the game client.
  • Added new fonts for tactical numbers.
  • Reworked the interface of applying decals.
  • Added new decals: square and rectangular.
    • Square decals will be available for all Tier X and Tier VIII vehicles.
    • Rectangular decals will be available for Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles.
  • Changed the spots that are available for applying the decals. All previously applied decals will be removed and sent to the section Exterior -> Decals.

Disabling Friendly Fire/Damage

  • We disabled team damage and team kills caused by friendly fire and ramming in all Random Battles (Standard, Encounter, Assault and Grand Battles).
  • Reworked the sounds and effects of direct hits received from allies.
  • Improved the system of penalties for causing damage and stunning allies.
  • Reworked the mechanics of interaction between the HE shells of SPGs and guns of the allied vehicles
  • The corresponding changes will be made to the Game Rules, which will take effect after the release of the update.

WoT Premium Account

  • Reworked the logic of adding the manageable XP bonus within WoT Premium Account. Now the extra XP will be sent to the crew according to the same rules that are applied to the Combat experience:  
    • If the Accelerated crew training is disabled (or is not available) before the beginning of a battle, a share of experience will go to the crew, the rest will go to the vehicle.
    • If the Accelerated crew training is enabled, all experience will be distributed between the crew members.
  • Changed the conditions, upon which the bonus can be used (all below conditions should be met):
    • The most recent victory in the selected vehicle.
    • The vehicle is in the Garage (not sold, the rental has not expired, etc.)
    • The crew that won the battle is in the vehicle.
    • The current state of the Accelerated crew training option is the same as it was before the beginning of the battle.

Maps

  • Made some balance changes to a spotting position on the Malinovka map: removed the trees that prevented the northern team from spotting enemy vehicles. 

Changes to the Wheeled Vehicles

  • Optimized performance of the engine modes.
    • When switching between the modes, the wheeled vehicles will not lose engine power anymore. This is especially important when switching from the Cruise to Rapid mode. Now the wheeled vehicles will not slow down before speeding up. The wheeled vehicles will simply keep building up the speed.
  • When switching between the modes, the wheels will be retracted and lowered down more realistically.
  • Optimized performance of the movement physics.
    • When running into an obstacle, it will be easier to regain control over the movement of the wheeled vehicle in some cases.
  • Added the option of disabling the speedometer of the wheeled vehicles in the client settings. Duplicated the indication of the drive modes on the damage panel.
  • Added the option of enabling/disabling the Auto-Aim Indicator for all vehicle types (via the tab of marker configuration). The Auto-Aim Indicator can be enabled/disabled separately for the Default and Alternative marker modes. The option will affect all vehicles, including the wheeled ones (i.e., the Auto-Aim Indicator can be disabled for the wheeled vehicles in the same way).
  • Added the option of switching between the drive modes for the wheeled vehicles during the pre-battle count down. The same applies to the Swedish tank destroyers.

Changes to the Interface

  • Added the option of disabling vehicles in the client settings. Duplicated indication of the damage modes.
