World of Tanks 1.8 – extended patch notes

Home News WarGaming news World of Tanks devs diaries World of Tanks news

Major changes:

1. Improved maneuverability of wheeled vehicles when moving backward.

The ability to turn the wheels harder when releasing the “Forward” button while holding the “Right” or “Left” keys is now added for moving in the opposite direction. To take advantage of this opportunity, simultaneously with the “Back” and “Right / Left” keys, it is necessary to hold down the “Manual brake” key. The new feature will allow more freedom to maneuver in confined spaces at low speeds.

2. Daily and premium tasks

A new type of tasks has been added: Daily.
• Three tasks will be available per day in Random Battles. After completing them, it will be possible to complete the fourth bonus task with a more valuable reward.
• Progress on tasks can be tracked directly in the Hangar. An unwanted daily task can be replaced once every 4 hours.
• Tasks available to owners of the Tank Premium account received a visual update and were moved to the Daily Tasks tab.

3. Changes in Ranked Battles.

1. Made balanced changes in the system of accrual of role-playing experience.
2. The principles of accruing experience for the destruction of the enemy have been revised. Now the amount of experience for the destruction depends on what share of strength the player “took” from the destroyed target. The less damage a destroyed player inflicts on a player, the less experience will be awarded for destruction. The percentage of damage is considered for the entire battle, and not for the last shot.
3. The mechanism for forming teams in the mode has been improved. Wheel tanks are placed in a separate category, they will have their own turn of balancing separately from tracked light tanks.
4. Interface improvements are made.
5. The indicator of hitting a player with shots of allied equipment in the “Information in Battle” menu for Ranked and Random Battles has been implemented.
