things been awfully quiet today but WG has published their official 9.16 summary:
Game client modifications are a wide-spread tool that allows players to adjust the standard game interface the way they prefer. The development team monitors the modifications that are popular among players and adds the best of them to the game. We consider several criteria when selecting which of the modifications should be added, such as the popularity of the particular modification as well as its gameplay utility. The introduction of popular external modifications allows us to improve the game interface while making it more convenient for players.
In Update 9.16, several popular modifications will be added to the standard interface: Battle indicators, dual-row vehicle selection, and extended fire-direction indicators.
In-battle information has a crucial effect upon the battle’s outcome. The more information that a player can consider while in battle, the higher their chances of victory. This allows players to select the most appropriate course of action to stay one step ahead of the enemy team. Players receive most of their information from the images on the screen: the distribution of vehicles on the map, any nearby combat, the minimap, etc. In Update 9.16, we will add one more source of useful information: we will be improving the battle interface to make it more informative.
Changes Implemented in Update 9.16
In the latest update, we will be improving the battle interface, adding information about events that take place in-battle, and will be upgrading the fire-direction indicators. The following changes will be added to the game:
- Reworked the fire-direction indicators with information about the amount of damage received, whether it was critical, and the vehicle that fired the shot.
- Added a damage panel showing the following info:
- Total damage caused by the player to spotted vehicles, including damage caused by shots, ramming, or setting enemies on fire.
- Damage blocked by armour—calculations consider the average damage of the shot that hit the vehicle. Damage, blocked with external modules (tracks, observation device, etc.) is not considered.
- Assistance damage—upon spotting or destroying a track.
- Added a list of in-game events in battle: base capture, base defence, enemy detection, etc.
Extended Vehicle Selector
Changes to Battle Chat
- Inappropriate behaviour in Battle Chat: this complaint includes the Insult and provocation, Spam, Out of Game Threat, and Gold selling / Fraud complaints
- Unsportsmanlike conduct
- Offensive nickname or clan name
- Inaction / Bot
In addition, we will be decreasing the the number of complaints. In the latest version, it will be possible to make a complaint about a player only once per battle. This improvement will decrease the number of complaints that need to be processed, speeding up the time it takes to resolve any issues.”

“Firstly, cross-team Battle Chat has been disabled for all battle types except Team Training”. What?!?!?! So you can’t even say “Nice one”, “ns!” or “Wow, thought you’d have had me there” or whatever?. Not everyone is an enemy-insulting lamer.
No will not !!! Back on the day we was able to talk in voice with the enemy team !!! But after the beta or alpha i not remember, they disable it 🙂
Wot was very fun and good mmo to play back on the day… but now for me its just business … my account of that time its already not mine ! 🙂 $$$$$$$
I love pay pal and fat americans that cant made a accnt with 1800 wn8 by them selfs 😛
as long as my beloved garage-hate-chat works, I’m fine 😀
Very well copy-pasted, good job, keep it up.
would you prefer no post at all? she said so herself, news has been slow, so be patient.
aawww they nerfed wesley001 🙁
Quote “In-battle information has a crucial effect upon the battle’s outcome. The more information that a player can consider while in battle, the higher their chances of victory. ”
So if everyone has the same info how does that work?
Some people make better use of information than others.
“and the vehicle that fired the shot”
Worst ingame option… IF light shoot without spoted, you see WHERE direction + name of tank, just found bush and Shoot 🙁
That’s actually quite realistic. In real life you would also know from which direction a shot came in, you would actually see the fumes of the gun firing and heard the gun’s sound from that direction.
It’s ok for REALISTIC game but it’s just WOT (99% no realistic stats / 90% real 3d model), no Tank simulator collector edition.
And it’s WW2 battle, not 2016 with m1 abrams with shoot sensors and shoot controller.
9.16 indicate : Meter (!!!) + “where” shoot appear… 1 shoot = 50% spotted, ennemy not see you perfectly but just shoot to bush and is ok (just shoot perfect distance).
For me, light spotter tank is dead, if i shoot + 15m bush = i’m spotted ans return fire arrive immediatly without full spotted…
Same for TD or other, 1 shoot = spotted and immediatly appear in HUD.
It will be a mild nerf to fast low calibre firing tanks with bad aiming time but as long as you move a little between shots in everything with good aim-time you shoudl be alright. Maybe this is a stealthy nerf to autoloaders sniping tanks to death from almost full health. ( you can now either retaliate or know the general direction you have to ange/run from )
nearly everyone who uses mod pack get those things on default. if so, then why not incorporate it in game so every gets fair game
Did WG maybe consider the possibility that the use of chat for ‘coordination & communication’ between teammates is rare because typing means taking both hands away from the controls? Gee, I wonder, maybe team-play would be easier with this odd thing the foreigners call “voice chat”. Nyet tovarisch! We don’t need such decadent western dalliances!
I always like voice chat and in Project Reality /Squad its a must have to play the game but i guess the wot community is the wrong place for that.
There is a built in voice chat, never really seen anyone using it.
Looking good but fucking hell, can WG please allow me to position the camera where I want?
I want the camera CLOSER to the tank not freaking further away, I want it like WarThunder
Then play war thunder and uninstall
Yes, but War Thunder doesn’t offer the same gameplay, numbnut…
Wait what kid? You want me to play WarThunder and then uninstall it?
But you never mentioned to install it, so you contradicted yourself, you cannot uninstall something that never was installed.
And yet they still haven’t included Jimbo’s, which is one of the most downloaded mods out there…
i think it would be better to have a self mute button ( a player can mute some douchebag from the opposing team) so that the player can ignore the douche bag and still enjoy the game. and a voting system to mute an ally if the said ally is a sell out douche bag – that way, the remaining players can still enjoy the game without the risk of being at a massive disadvantage when they get sell out allies.
Yeah, anything is better than hitting the EZ button and just removing the feature all together. I would prefer the individual can disable cross-team chat themselves, so those that want to be social (whatever it means to them) can do so. They could add an icon/indicator in the player list so everyone knows who is “not listening” so that trolls don’t bother with those muting cross team chat.
But then again, just removing it is much easier…
Added a damage panel showing the following info:
Total damage caused by the player to spotted vehicles, including damage caused by shots, ramming, or setting enemies on fire.
Damage blocked by armour—calculations consider the average damage of the shot that hit the vehicle. Damage, blocked with external modules (tracks, observation device, etc.) is not considered.
Assistance damage—upon spotting or destroying a track.
Where is damaged panel ? I dont want Damage blocked by armor, i want damage count on my tank plus enemy tank name deal it and number of damage
All this is well and good but it is time to fix the real problems: MM and SPG’s!! Hello is anyone listening? (I guess not!).
They do listen but they dont give a fuck.
Can you say communist?
GJ WarGaming now copy and past the life WN8 feature and the XVM Team can end their work.
No need to nerf op tanks like KV2 or IS3, better give us an other citymaps to buff these tank more.
KV-2 op?? hehe
