Common Test 9.20, Third Iteration Improvements

13

Good day everybody, quick post on the changes going into the third iteration of the 9.20 Common test:

  • Marks of Excellence can no longer be earned in the Ranked Battle or Grand Battle mode. Battles in these modes have no influence on the player’s Marks of Excellence.
  • Fixed the issue with duplicating confirmation windows in Team Training lobbies.
  • Fixed the issue with camera binding to a destroyed vehicle.
  • Fixed the issue where it was impossible to disable the chat with allies in a Grand Battle.
  • Fixed the issue where a pop-up hint about the prime times of Ranked Battles was displayed on certain dates when switching months in the calendar.
  • Fixed the issue with the display of mission conditions.
  • Fixed the issue where the commander’s cupola was missing in a destroyed Tiger 131 tank.
  • Fixed some technical issues.
  • Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. D: Fixed the issue with the display of Inscriptions on the tank’s second turret.
  • Fixed the issue with the display of the hint about Premium Account discount.
  • Fixed the issue with the inability to switch to 1024×768 resolution correctly.
  • T-34-2G FT: Fixed the issue that caused strong rocking of the tank’s hull when braking.
  • Bat.-Châtillon 25 t: Visually adjusted the size of the tank’s top gun.

 

That’s all for now folks.

“Answer” The chance of rainy weather in tank battle is very low since the visibility is really bad and it’s uncomfortable for players. It also makes aircraft almost useless in such battles. Continue reading
