A new battle type, new maps and a lot of useful improvements – this is the new version 8.11. Get ready, Commanders!
New Battle Type: Confrontation
This battle type will be available in Random Battles, along with the "Encounter" and "Assault" battle types. The main characteristic of Confrontation is that it will introduce battles between teams representing specific nations.
The probability of playing “Confrontation” is the same as for "Encounter" or "Assault".
The game maps available in "Confrontation" are the same as in any standard battle.
The new battle type will be open for all vehicle tiers.
Teams in “Confrontation” are built by nations. Battles cannot be fought by two teams built from vehicles of the same nation. For example, a French vehicle team can battle against the British, Americans, Germans or Soviets, but not against another team of French vehicles.
The Chinese and Japanese nations are excluded from this battle type. The reason is that these nations do not have all vehicle types available.
The new battle type can be played in platoons, provided that all platoon members are driving vehicles of the same nation (excluding China and Japan).
This battle type can be manually disabled in the game settings menu, just like the “Assault” and “Encounter” battle types.
New Map: Windstorm
This 1000x1000m map is set in a European landscape during winter, and to a large degree consists of urban areas with narrow streets and indestructible buildings.
New Group Crew Operations
The new version introduces a handy new feature, which will allow you to manage your crews more effectively:
Retrain crew - This option will allow you to retrain all the crew members to operate a particular vehicle at once. Please note that this action will affect only those tankers who are occupying their respective slots in the vehicle itself.
Return crew to vehicle - With this command, you can restore all of the vehicle’s designated crew members with just one click. It is especially handy when you are using Premium vehicles to train your crews.
Send crew to the Barracks - Clicking this option will send every single crew member to the barracks, provided that you have enough free bunks.
