Changes to Emblems and Inscriptions in 10.0

Tank customization is getting reworked for World of Tanks 10.0. Previously, emblems and inscriptions were used on vehicles solely for aesthetic purposes, in order to make the vehicle unique and stand out. And getting the benefits of camo is only apparent when you're properly concealed. In Update 10.0, emblems and inscriptions will become as useful in battle as camouflage.

What Will Change

Emblems and inscriptions aren't just for cosmetics anymore -- they will grant certain bonuses to the qualifications of your Crew.

These major qualification bonuses can be for all Crew members, either influencing them all at once or one-by-one. There are two types of bonuses, either for an individual member or all members of the Crew.

  • Permanent bonus: Bonus to major qualifications of a Crew. Works during the whole battle
  • Temporary bonus: Bonus to major qualifications of a Crew. Starts working after fulfilling certain requirements

Important! All emblems and inscriptions applied to vehicles before the release of Update 10.0 will remain. Bonuses will work regardless of the date the inscription or emblem was applied to the vehicle.

How the Bonuses Work

Each emblem or inscription applied to a vehicle adds a specific bonus to its major qualification. Bonuses for all Crew members influence the whole Crew, and depending on the conditions to activate them, they add either +1% (permanent bonus) or +2% (temporary bonus) to the major qualification of the whole Crew. Individual bonuses work similarly, but with +2% for bonuses that are permanently active and +3% for bonuses that are active after fulfilling certain requirements. Activated bonuses will be displayed on the major qualification level scale.

Adding Bonuses Together

There can be a maximum of two emblems and two inscriptions on a vehicle. Bonuses from different emblems and inscriptions can be added together if their bonus affects the same Crew members or entire Crew.

  • Identical bonuses from different inscriptions and emblems are added together
  • An emblem or an inscription that gives a bonus to a specific Crew member will work for all Crew members with the same qualification (for example, two loaders in the IS-7)
  • If a specific Crew member has more than one qualification (for example, when a Crew member is both a Commander and a Radio Operator), bonuses are added to the specific qualification. For example, for applied inscriptions and emblems, there is a bonus of +2% to the major qualification of the Commander, +1% to the major qualification of all Crew members and +2% to the Radio Operator qualification. All in all, a Commander will get +3% to its major qualification, this number will be displayed on the major qualification level scale, and +3% to the Radio Operator's qualification
