For safety's sake, the game client and updates must be downloaded from the special section on the official website of World of Tanks only. If you download World of Tanks from other sources, your computer may suffer from viruses and scumware. The development team does not bear responsibility for links, game clients and updates located on off-sites.

We draw your attention to the fact that the test server is subject to EULA and general rules of World of Tanks game server. The restrictions and punishments are the same as on the official game server of World of Tanks. The details of the public test server of v.7.0 update can be found in the special discussion thread. The discussion of failures and bugs of test update 7.0 is carried out in the special sub-forum only.

Please, mind the peculiarities of the public test server:
  • Progress received during the first test of 7.0 update won't be transferred to the second test server.
  • Payments are not accepted on the public test server.
  • Credit and experience rates for public test server are multiplied 10 times. All players are given 15k gold for testing purposes.
  • Progress won't be transferred to the main EU server.
Some details on changes to take place within World of Tanks with the v.7.0 update release:
  • The Personal File of a crew member will not show battle statistics, but a new section “Experience required for the skill growth” will be added, that will denote the amount of experience remaining to the full percent of a promoted skill. Below that, the average experience per battle and an estimated number of battles remaining before you get that percentage.
  • Few procedures with the tank crew (in crew's management) will change: left-click on a tanker’s icon will allow only recruiting of a new crew member. For Personal File view, dismissing or sending to barracks a crew member, right-click on the tanker’s icon and choose the required action (desired option).
  • New modes of “team ears” switching. We remind you that “team ears” is an in-battle menu which depicts the lists of the friendly and enemy teams. With the 7.0 update, there will be four different modes for the “ears” menu view, and it will be easier to switch the “ears” mode (by clicking simply on Tab, instead of the previous combination Ctrl + Tab).
  • Minimap. One of the main upcoming minimap innovations is the option of its transparency change (Menu => Settings => Game => Transparency of the minimap) and sizing. You can set the hotkeys for the sizing in the settings (Menu => Settings => Controls => Minimap).
  • The option of the battle record and replay. The v.7.0 update will give you the opportunity to watch your battles for the detailed analysis or just for fun. To activate the option, go to Menu => Settings => Game and put a mark in the “Record the battle for replay” field. After that, all your battles will be recorded and saved to the folder “replays” the game directory of World of Tanks. The video will be replayed after a double click on it.
