The new patch updated significantly the technical component of the game: with Update 9.15, we moved to the updated version of the game engine that was being used before. This was a set of technological and architectural changes for the game client, with which the support of DX11 technology became available. With the release of the update, the graphic cards that support DX11 technology switched automatically to using it, graphics processors that do not support DX11 still use DX9.
The benefits of DX11 are that it brings another visible change to players – possible performance boosts for certain computer configurations. The improvement of performance varies depending on computer configuration. Higher-end PCs see a larger increase in performance: builds with two and more physical processor cores see the most notable difference.
DX11 support will allow the adoption of advanced technological solutions from the game industry; in the future, World of Tanks will be able to use the capabilities of most modern PCs effectively. In addition to supporting these features, the new version of the game engine allows opportunites to improve and enhance the visual component of the game. In the future there will be a gradual process of qualitive development of technological components for World of Tanks; this will guarantee benefits for our players, version to version.
In cases where the game client crashes, including due to too high graphic settings, try to reset the game client's settings in the launcher:
