World of Tanks Blitz UPDATE 3.6 – VEHICLE REBALANCE

Home News WarGaming news World of Tanks Blitz World of Tanks news

Commanders,

As we stated at the beginning of the year, in Update 3.6, Tier IX–X medium tanks will be significantly rebalanced. High-tier vehicles of this class had too much influence on the outcome of battles, which is confirmed by the statistics and player experiences. Learn more about the changes below.

Premium Vehicles

FCM 50 t

  • Turret armour increased from 120 to 150 mm

Researchable Vehicles

  • Why was the penetration decreased?
    Most Tier IX–X medium tanks outdo heavy tanks in this parameter, which contradicts their initially intended role in battle. Medium tanks easily penetrate the front of heavy tanks from a distance, thus depriving the heavy class of their main advantage.
  • Why was turret armour nerfed for Soviet medium tanks?
    Top Soviet medium tanks used to stay in the same position and block huge amounts of damage with their turret armour. The redistribution and nerfing of turret armour will encourage players to pay more attention to manoeuvres when driving these tanks. However, turret shapes remain unchanged, so Soviet medium tanks will still be able to successfully deflect enemy shells.
