Hello,

Thanks to Edrard for sending this! <3

update_917_1_1920x900

Here’s the list of changes you can expect for the 9.17.1 patch:

Patch contains following updates:

Game Features
  • Removed the Ranked Battles from the client; players will be able to view their statistics on the mode in the Service Record tab.
  • Swapped the Mode and Window Size options in the Graphics window; added resolution options for the Windowed (borderless) mode, which may be useful for streamers who use one screen.
  • Implemented automatic selection of screen ratio; thus, removed the corresponding option from the Graphics menu.
  • Improved vehicle comparison: the new feature allows vehicle comparison that considers perks and skills, mounted equipment and consumables, loaded ammunition, and camouflages.
  • Added a new method of importing game modifications: all content of each modification is packed into a single file
  • Implemented the following changes to the interface elements:
    1. Battle Performance Badges:
    2. – Implemented display of two and more badges for identical battle events. For example, when causing damage to two enemy vehicles with a single shot (or causing damage with shots to two different vehicles within a very short time), the system will display two different badges, instead of a single badge that shows the total damage amount and the vehicle name.
    3. –  If an enemy vehicle is destroyed, players do not need to see a badge with the number of damaged modules in the destroyed vehicle (displayed after the Destroyed badge). The Critical Hit badge, in this case, will be disabled.
    4. – Added the new Wrecked badge (when causing damage to enemy vehicles using the terrain (physics)). Such events will be displayed separately in the detailed damage panel. The badge will be added to the settings so that players can configure its display.
    5. Fire direction indicators:
      1. Changed graphical materials of the damage direction indicators (to “unload” the battle interface)
      2. Added the option that enables/disables the dynamic fire indicator (indicator width changes depending on the amount of received/blocked damage). By default, the option is disabled: fire direction indicators have the same width.
      3. Changed indicator timings and added the animation.
    6. Added additional information into the settings, which explains the principles of some feedback options.
    7. Added information about receiving damage or critical hits to:
      1. battle performance badges
      2. detailed damage panel
    8. Damage or critical hits received from allies will be displayed in the performance badge and detailed damage panel. The performance badge colour and values of the detailed damage panel will be the same for both damage received from an enemy and damage received from an ally (red colour for received damage, orange colour for a critical hit).
    9. Added the shell type into the detailed damage panel. Premium shells will be displayed with the golden colour. The indication of premium shells will be permanent. The battle performance badges and fire direction indicators will not display the shell type. The shell type is displayed only in entries of the detailed damage panel in the following cases:
      1. Damage received
      2. Critical hit received
      3. Damage blocked by armour
    10. Made changes to the options of the detailed damage panel:
      1. Added the option of displaying the detailed damage panel: received damage, critical hits, and damage blocked by armour
      2. Added the option that changes the location of the detailed damage panel: received damage, critical hits, and damage blocked by armour can be displayed to the right of the allied team section.
    11. Improved fonts of all performance badges and damage panel.
    12. Improved fonts and backgrounds for values of the detailed damage panel.
    13. Improved texts in the damage panel settings window.
    14. When all total values of the detailed damage panel are disabled, the detailed damage panel can be displayed (in versions 9.16 and 9.17, when disabling all three total values, the detailed damage panel was forcedly concealed).
    15. For quick-firing guns, the battle performance badges and entries in the detailed damage panel will display the total value of the shot series.
  • Improved the mechanism of arranging Platoon members when the battle is loading (Platoon members are arranged on the map closer to each other\considering map specifics, the number of Platoons.
  • Improved the mechanism of switching the camera to the observer (postmortem) mode:
    1. first, the camera switches to the vehicles of the Platoon members
    2. next, the camera switches between players, according to their position in the team panel
  • Changed tooltip design
  • Added numerical influence of existing bonuses upon the simplified technical characteristics in the corresponding tooltips
  • Visualised influence of the activated equipment (Binocular Telescope and Camouflage Net) upon the simplified technical characteristics in the interface
  • Changed the display format for penetration and damage characteristics of the standard shell from a range of values to the average value in the Garage and in the vehicle preview window. The range of values can be found in the tooltip.
  • Added standard shell indication in the shell tooltip
  • Implemented comparison of shell parameters in the tooltip relative to the standard shell
  • Improved filters of the vehicle panel in the Garage
    1. Added the option of searching a vehicle by name in the filter panel
    2. Added the option of changing the vehicle panel layout from the filter panel
    3. Added additional statistics to the vehicle slot: Victories and Mastery Badge. The statistics is displayed upon hovering over the vehicle slot, and can be disabled in the settings.
    4. Added the option of displaying the two-level vehicle panel: adjustable and minimalistic
  1. Improved the interfaces of the mission informer and mission window
    1. Added informers for tutorial missions for new players
    2. Improved notifications about new missions in the mission window
  2. Removed irrelevant crew bonus components (“nulls”) from the Exterior interface
  3. Performed transfer to the new Wwise 2016.2 version
  4. Extended the functionality and support of the sound modes (source project with structures, remapping possibility, documentation, compilation of an unlimited number of sounds, etc.)
  5. Changes to the Stronghold mode
    1. The Battle for Stronghold sub-mode is replaced with a new one, named Advance, which is still a series of battles in the tug-of-war format with three defence lines, but with a number of distinctive features:
      1. Strongholds cannot be pillaged anymore: in the case of a defeat, the clan will not lose anything. The winner’s earnings will depend directly on the level of their Stronghold
      2. The Stronghold does not need to be defended every day. Battles in the mode are not mandatory
      3. Battles in the mode start at a particular time; the opponent is selected automatically from the queue
    1. Disabled pillage and mandatory Stronghold defence resulted in significant changes in the mode economy. The War Department, which is currently used by top clans that earned their reputation in battles, would be available to a large number of clans, which would result in imbalance of the game economy in general
    2. To compensate for advantages of the War Department, the War Games competition system is introduced, where clans that participate in Skirmishes and Advances will be able to compete for top positions in several categories. The winners will be rewarded with gold, special reserves, and other awards.
    3. Important: The Game Wars will start after the release of version 9.17.1.
    4. The battle room (in both Skirmishes and Advances) can be unlocked for legionaries who will be able to join your detachment (in both Team Trainings and Tank Company Battles).
    5. The list of unlocked battle rooms will be available in the special interface.
