WoT Update 9.22 Full Notes

18

Full notes for the 9.22 update hitting EU and NA in the next couple of days:

Improvements to the Matchmaker

  • The improvements to the matchmaker will ensure more even distribution among the battle types enabled by players (Standard Battle, Attack/Defense, Encounter Battle, Grand Battle). The battle type selector will consider the history of the player’s previous battles. The Grand Battles will not come in a succession.

Improvements to the Vehicle Customization

  • The lower panel of the customization interface will contain the Applied sign for elements that are applied to the vehicle.
  • Increased the clickable spots for the Emblems and Inscriptions.
  • When purchasing customization elements, the Purchase and Exit text will be displayed to players. If a player does not make a purchase but only changes a customization element (elements), the Apply and Exit text will be displayed.

WoT Console: Update 4.3 Preview and Update Times

3

Good day/evening everyone,

Brief overview and downtimes for Update 4.3 for World of Tanks Console. Lets start off with probably the most looked forward to news of this update: Two maps will be returning to the rotation- Live Oaks and Severogorsk.

After months of wondering when the several maps removed would be returned with no indication of when from WG, this is a nice gesture, and a nice showing that at least some long standing issues with the game are being worked on (slowly, but better than nothing).

Nomonhan Winter

In terms of new content, a winter variant bringing back the Asian themed map assets back into the game (another casualty of the map purge). We’ve posted images of the new map a few days ago. Check them out here. Continue reading

  • A new alcove has also been added for the southern team to have a better position to hold the town center.
