From the Forums.

  1. The bunker’s size was increased even more for better tactical opportunities. Now it’s one of the key areas on the map.
  2. The path next to the bridge was changed to avoid attacks from behind happening too quickly.
  3. Passages were added to connect areas on the opposite side of each block.
  4. Additional covers were added, allowing you to move between them along the entire map.

The closed testing of the Minsk map continues with a different map variant aside from those shown in the previous news.

  1. Added river crossings near both sides of the central bridge to provide opportunity for manoeuvring if you need to change positions.
  2. Large trees and some bushes from the landscape area were removed for easier driving and spotting.
  3. Positions for tank destroyers are now clearer and more comfortable.
  4. The long firing sectors on the landscape area along the avenue were removed. The landscape area was reworked to provide more tactical opportunities. Some hills allow to take advantage of the elevation/depression angles and strong turrets. Those changes in the landscape allow to move along the whole avenue on both sides.
  5. Added a new position – an unfinished building – as a counterpart to the circus.
  6. Added a path in the city for the team starting in the upper part to help them getting to positions easier and allow for additional manoeuvring in the city block.
  7. The city blocks behind the Victory Square were opened up; it’s now possible to engage vehicles in the city that way.
  8. The base positions were changed, and the landscape has been corrected.
  9. We expanded the ford near the top base and removed some embarkment area elements, so driving is easier and more straightforward now.
  10. We completely reworked the yard layouts in the western part of the map; they are now more spacious and fit for manoeuvring. To keep the historical layout, the structure of the two entrances remains, however it’s now possible to fire through the entrance near the red line at mid-range. Medium tanks will have more space in these yards, there will be fewer encounters with groups of enemies, and it will be easier to fall back from them.
  11. The white fence pillars at the landscape area blocking fire and movement were removed.

Changes to Customization in Update 1.6

wot_update_1_6_common_test_visual_615h346

In Update 1.6, you will have a completely new experience interacting with tank customization. We’re updating the decal interface to allow you to customize your vehicles more easily, and we’re introducing fresh sets of “classic” square and brand-new rectangular decals. In addition, we’re rolling out new fonts for Personal Numbers. Finally, you can see detailed information about some of the available styles in a special window in the game client. And now let’s look at each feature individually.

The Improved Customization Interface

Previously, you had to choose one of four so-called “anchors” on a certain part of the hull to apply a Decal on your vehicle. You also had to use special little arrows, and perform other actions. However, the movement of decals still wasn’t so convenient, and there was a need to improve the whole interaction process with Decals.

But now that’s all in the past! Starting with Update 1.6, when choosing a Decal, you will immediately be able to see all the points on your vehicle to which you can apply it. You can see how the Decal will look on a certain part of the hull, and it is pretty easy to drag it to another place with your cursor. Don’t like a specific Decal? No problem! Simply remove it with a few clicks and replace it with another one!
