2. Platoon bonus. The owner of the Tank premium account receives an additional 15% bonus to earning credits when playing in the platoon. The bonus does not depend on the number of state-owned ones, while the state-owned ones also receive a 10% credit bonus (even if they do not have a premium account).

5. + 1 excluded map. All players can exclude one map from the rotation, and the owners of the Tank premium account will receive a slot to exclude a second map.

Features of the release of a new premium account. 

When the update is released, all players will be credited with an account for as many days as the Tank premium account, as well as the total premium account they had before the update. The total premium will continue to work on the account in parallel with the Tank, but the Tank premium will be displayed and working in the game client.

Related client changes. 

1. Redesigned player profile interface. Now, by clicking on the player’s nickname in the hangar, the account status interface will be displayed, in which you can see the current status of the premium account, as well as switch to the interfaces of the Tank premium account options. Also in this interface it will be possible to manage personal reserves.
2. Added an explanation and description of all the new features of the tank premium account, as well as tools for managing them. 
3. The platoon bonus from the Tank premium account is now summed up with the already existing bonus from the game in the platoon. 
4. In the game store, the player can only buy Tank premium account.
5. The total premium account is no longer available for purchase and receipt within the game client. In all tasks, events, promotions and personal combat missions will be issued only Tank premium account. 

2. Changing rank fights. 

• Added functionality “Role Experience”, which came to replace the “Experience for active hostilities.” Implemented additional indication of the implementation of role-playing actions in the information in the battle. 
• Reworked player progression, added divisions, added Prize fights mechanic. 
• The interface of the home screen of the “Rank battle” mode has been reworked to reflect the appearance of divisions. 
• Added annual reward mechanics. Redesigned interface rewards screen.
• Disabled damage on allies shots and ram. Reworked the sounds and effects of direct hits from Allied vehicles. The system of penalties for damage to modules and stunning allies has been improved. 
• Redesigned interface “Leaders of the season.” Revised terms of getting into the rating. 

3. Select a map to exclude it.

• The player gets the opportunity to exclude one or two maps from the rotation in random battle.
• Base account allows you to exclude one map, and Tank Premium – two.
• Exclusion map works for vehicles of level IV and above.
• Maps are excluded only for Random fights and only for the “Standard Fight” type. The player who eliminated, for example, Siegfried Line, will continue to hit her in Storm or Counter Battle if the corresponding checkboxes are enabled in the settings.
• General Battle maps cannot be excluded. 
• It is possible to change the choice of an excluded map only after the completion of the freezing period (4 hours).
• When playing in a platoon, those maps that are excluded from the platoon commander are considered excluded.

4. Changes in the appearance

Now you can apply paint on the equipment of any level. 

5. Changing the stunning system. 

1. All stuns inflicted on a tank that is already stunned are halved in time.
2. Super-heavy spall liner reduces the time of repeated stuns by 20%, and heavy fragmentation – by 10%.
3. The minimum time of stunning in the game is reduced by 5% of the maximum time of stunning.
4. The magnitude of the shock wave damage (so-called “splash”) at the edge of the fragment radius changes from 0.15 to 0.05 for all high-explosive fragmentation shells. This leads to a change in the distribution of damage from the “splash” over the entire radius of scattering of the fragments. The damage from indirect hits of high-explosive fragmentation shells is reduced. It also reduces the time spent stunning. For direct hits of high-explosive shells, this change has little effect.
5. Change the performance characteristics of a number of arties.
