Update 1.6.1: Common Test is Here!

Subtitles in our supported languages are also available by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner.

This Common Test will not be typical, Commanders. Along with the features of Update 1.6.1, you have the opportunity to try out new mechanics which are currently under active development and will be implemented at a later stage. The first Common Test takes you backstage to get a view behind closed doors as the following updates take shape. Hop on board and give us your feedback — your input is crucial as we continue evolving these features!

Multinational Vehicles

You’re probably aware of the unique history of the T-34-85 Rudy. In our game, it fights in the ranks of the Soviet Union, but during World War II, this tank was at the disposal of Polish units fighting in the Red Army. The T-34-85 Rudy was widely known thanks to the TV show “Four Tank-men and a Dog,” and it made a significant contribution to Polish culture. 

In Update 1.6.1, you can take advantage of the remarkable functionality of multinational vehicles. The first multinational tank is the aforementioned T-34-85 Rudy. Those of you who have this vehicle in the Garage will now have the opportunity to try out this functionality during the Common Test.

Technically, the T-34-85 Rudy is the same tank with identical battle characteristics, but it belongs to a different nation (Poland or the Soviet Union). You can instantly switch between them at any time in your Garage: You only need to move the Polish Crew to it, load ammo, and mount additional equipment (if necessary).

Note: You cannot switch to an alternative version of the tank during battle. The choice of nation is only available in the Garage before you roll out. Your can save your configuration of the tank for another nation (such as Crew and mounted equipment).

This feature offers interesting opportunities, allowing you to boost Crews from different nations and complete battle missions available for each nation with the same tank.

We really want to hear your feedback on multinational vehicles. If you like it, we’ll consider the possibility of introducing more in the future.

New Styles

You can never have too many unique custom looks! Together with Update 1.6.1, we’re adding two new customization sets, containing:

  • A unique historical 2D style for each nation: Available for Gold in the game client; for all vehicle types.
  • A unified historical 2D "Jaeger" style for all nations: Also available for Gold; for all vehicle types. 

We continue our consistent work on customization and development of new styles to make your vehicles even more refined, so stay tuned!

Ranked Battles

The new Season of Ranked Battles is getting closer, and you already have the opportunity to experience it during the first Common Test.

A quick look at the most significant changes to Ranked Battles:

  • A fixed number of battles during qualification.
  • Reworked distribution of Chevrons.  
  • Additional permanent Ranks: The mechanic will be available in the following iterations of Common Test. 

Finally, we’ll make some balance changes to the system of role experience.

Pay attention: The settings and specific values of Ranked Battles relevant for the Common Test may change after the official start of the Season. As always, feel free to share your feedback on the upcoming changes.

List of Changes
