Update 1.5.1 Common Test

9

1.5.1_common_test_615x346

We have posted the video yesterday now for the details. ( Earlier today I watched some of a WoT NA Test server Stream with TragicLoss and CabbageMechanic. They were at great pains to say that the Rebalance of Tanks that were in the first Supertest of the rebalance and later removed from testing has NOT been cancelled but only postponed.)

It’s been only two weeks since Update 1.5, but we’ve got Update 1.5.1 ready for the Common Test! Check out medium tanks with rebalanced battle parameters, and a new feature: Session Statistics. In addition, Kharkov, a once-forgotten winter locale, returns as a Random Battles map. Let’s roll!

Medium Tanks Rebalance

At WG Fest last December, we announced an upcoming rebalance of five vehicles. One of them, the Kranvagn, has already received its portion of consistent improvements with Update 1.5. Now it’s time to pay attention to some Tier X medium tanks and adjust their key parameters, making their battle profiles clearer.

We have thoroughly tested these rebalanced vehicles during Supertests to understand how they will impact gameplay. Now we are ready to take the next step and finalize our adjustments.

  • The Leopard 1 will be enhanced as a sniper and will be able to hit enemies more effectively at long range.
  • The STB-1 will take better advantage of terrain thanks to its turret and a hydropneumatic suspension.

WoT Update 1.5.1 Common Test.

Medium Tanks Rebalancing

The Common test update became available earlier this evening. But it has one caveat you must install the Game Center to play it. Personally I dislike the Game Center and have had more problems with it than without, so not having the choice doesn’t sit well.

Banner patch

Another micro patch to the 1.5 client. We have info for the RU and EU server clusters but not NA.

 

Micro Patch Downtime

  • Fort RU: On May 16 there will be a minor update. Game servers and clan portal will be unavailable from 6:00 to 6:45 (MSK).
  • For EU: The World of Tanks servers and Clan Portal will be unavailable on 16.05.2019 from 06:00 – 06:45 CEST due to this update.

Patch Notes (from the Russian cluster)

  • A bug which caused some tanks render incorrectly in the Front Line mode (they are invisible).
  •  A bug due to which the counter of new appearance elements instead of displaying the number of new elements displayed the number of new types.
  • For the Conqueror Gun Carriage, the shell speed and trajectory from version 1.4.1 has been restored.
  • Some thechnical errors were fixed.

This is the second attempt at fixing the invisible tanks issue.
