From EU support.
We are happy to announce the release of the 9.18 patch for World of Tanks.
The World of Tanks servers will be unavailable on the 27.04.2017 from 01:00 CEST to 06:30 CEST due to this update.
Please also keep in mind, that due to the actualization:
- Global map will be frozen from 02:00 CEST 27.04.2017 to 02:00 CEST 28.04.2017
- Clan Portal (eu.wargaming.net/clans) will be unavailable from 01:00 CEST 27.04.2017 till 06:30 CEST 27.04.2017
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
There is a futher change to the Match Maker.
- The top tier of three-tier battles will comprise the same number of tank destroyers, SPGs, and light tanks (of both Platoon and solo players) in both teams. For each of these vehicle types, the number of vehicles will be the same in both teams (i.e. they will be treated separately). In addition, the top tier will comprise the same aggregate number of medium and heavy tanks in both teams, but these vehicle types will not be treated separately.
- The top tier of three-tier battles can have only one SPG.
