British Wheeled Medium Tanks
Six British wheeled medium tanks are entering the game! These agile vehicles can turn in place, are relatively easy to handle with no extra movement modes attached, and also have precise guns. All of the above allows them to excel as mobile fire support, striking opponents when least expected and driving away before the enemy can retaliate.
Ten maps received various adjustments that improve balance and create additional opportunities for more varied and nuanced tactical approaches. Mountain Pass, Fisherman‘s Bay, Studzianki, and Oyster Bay are the locations that received the most attention. Murovanka, Cliff, and Live Oaks saw significant changes, while Lakeville, Ensk, and Siegfried Line saw minor ones.
We are constantly monitoring the battle performance of all vehicles and community feedback on them, and several categories of vehicles will undergo stat adjustments in Update 1.22. These categories include not only Tier X researchables but also mid-tier ones, as well as a bunch of Premium tanks. Some Tier X reward vehicles will also have their overall efficiency slightly decreased. All in all, the current overperformers will receive a small nerf, while underperforming vehicles’ stats will be improved. The main goal of these changes is to make gameplay more balanced, tactically diverse, and fair.
The new Season of Onslaught is the first in a year-long cycle of three seasons with nice rewards that include a new Tier X tank—the Hurricane, a Polish medium with an awesome 3D style and a unique crew. The much-loved 7v7 mode also offers an updated ranking system with Qualification battles to define your starting rank, new vehicle customization, new maps, rebalanced Role Skills, and battles without SPGs.
Season XII of Battle Pass is Mirny-13 themed. The foreboding setting has defined the story of the hero tankers’ adventures, as well as the looks of progressive styles for the Core Vehicles: the Object 140, the M-V-Y, and the Jagdpanzer E100. Complete Stages and entire Chapters, earn goodies and get even more of them with the Improved Pass, and don’t forget to spend all your Tokens by the end of Season XII, as this one is the last of 2023!
WoT Plus users are now entitled to a daily bonus just for logging in to the game—in addition to the exclusive TS-54 heavy, Gold Reserve, Intensive Crew Regimen, and other benefits. Every fifth login gives a larger yield, even if the logins before it weren’t on consecutive days.
Helpless tanks lying on their side or with their tracks up and unable to move will automatically be returned to normal from now on. After a 15-second timer runs out, they will be back on their tracks and ready to battle again.
Players with WoT Premium Account will be credited an additional 24 hours of Premium Account time to make up for the update maintenance period. If you’d like to make any in-game purchases, please wait until the servers are running again.
World of Tanks servers will be down on September 05 at 00:30 PT | 02:30 CT | 03:30 ET to 06:00 PT | 08:00 CT | 09:00 ET.
Good luck, Commanders!
