WoT Console August Overview

Good day everyone,

Brief overview of the new content (hopefully going for quality over quantity) and events coming to WoT Console during August:

Beasts of Prey

In what may be one of the most confusingly named events ever, a new Earn Op. No details so far, though based on player feedback it seems that they will go for something similar to the American Dream Op, with multiple tiers of prizing based on points earned.

Beasts of War

In a welcomed move, WoT Console is seeing the introduction of three requested premiums from PC in the form they were introduced in on that platform: The Rheinmetall Skorpion G, the M46 Patton KR, and the Panzer 58 Mutz

WoT 9.20: New 60 Player Mode


With news from 9.20 coming out, we have a bit more info on the latest go at a 30v30 mode, this new “General Battle” (yeah, that’s probably just an off translation) will apparently be variant on Random Battles. Here are the basic rules:

  • 60 Players: 30v30
  • 15 minute battle time
  • Tier X only
  • Victory Conditions:L Capture the enemy base or destroy all enemy tanks


  • Players will be drawn from the Random Battle queue
  • Tier X vehicles only
  • The occurrence of the new mode will be largely random
  • The new mode will be enabled by default for all players, though you can manually disable it in the same manner as the other game variants
  • Each team will be further divided into 3 subgroups of 10 each (cannot be manually chosen, this is determined by the matchmaker)
  • The composition of each team is still bound by the new MM 2.0 rules
  • Each subgroup will try to be matched as equally as possible with a subgroup on the opposing team
  • The number of SPGs per team will be limited to 4
  • When matching up platoons, there can not be a difference of more than two players when matching platoons between both teams
  • If one player in a platoon has the new game type selected, then it is possible for the platoon to be queued into the new mode

9.20 Balance Overview


Good day everyone,

WG has released a balance overview covering all of the tank changes we will be seeing in 9.20. However, rather than repeat things we’ve put up already over the past month or so, we’ll provide links to those articles and note any new developments, you may even like a few of them:


So far no major changes from the previously released info

Medium Changes

Heavy & Tank Destroyer Changes

The heavy changes will likely continue in the future, as WG wants to further distinguish the IS and KV lines, bringing back the KV’s old role as well armored damage dealers.


First update: After reviewing the test data and feedback, the Bat-Chat 25t will remain Continue reading
