Common post patch problems and solutions

I am missing Equipment

Equipment going missing after a patch mostly relates to:

  • Camouflage Net
  • Binocular Telescope
  • Toolbox

From our experience, this is caused by:

  • Garage mods misplacing or creating the illusion that you had more Equipment.
  • You or someone else with access to your account, moved or sold Equipment.

No patch delete equipment. Should a patch remove Equipment, the patch notes will reflect this change.

The game settings or the cache are corrupted

Please delete the game cache (this will reset game settings):

  1. Press Win+R
  2. Type “%appdata%\”
  3. Delete the World of Tanks folder

The graphics driver is outdated

Please make sure to use the recommended graphics card driver:


  • GeForce 400 Series and newer – 376.33
  • GeForce 200 Series and older (released in 2009 or earlier) – 342.01


  • RX 470/480 – known crash issues under investigation; driver Crimson Edition 16.11.5 Hotfix seems to have brought some stability improvements.
  • Radeon HD 7700-7900 Series, R5 240, R5 300, R7 200+, R9 200+ – Crimson Relive 17.1.1
  • Radeon HD 5000-7600 Series – Catalyst 15.7.1
  • Radeon HD 2000-4000 Series – Catalyst 13.9 (WinVista/7), Catalyst 14.4 (WinXP)

    Well my RU is still gathering elite xp which I can’t research Rhm with.
    Also, new matchmaking is a joke. I’ve seen maybe 4 “3-5-7” battles in 2 days. Majority are 1 level battles which are just dumb. Anyone else?

    1. NA server, everything is working as they said for mm. Tier 9 is pretty popular with a lot of people grinding to the new tier 10 light tanks and tier 9 is generally the longest grind for most people. Takes the longest for getting doubles etc. I think you just had some remarkably poor luck but soon people will get tired of grinding to the new light tanks.

    1. You uninstall WoT then install it again. Check version number. If not 9.17.1 you try again and again until you get it.

      Or you just gtfo and never comeback! Who cares, really?

    Its good to know that yet again WG can not produce a product that is not fucked up! This patch was too big, and should have been 2 or maybe 3 smaller ones so they could MAYBE get it right. WTG guys.

  5. Equipment going missing after a patch mostly relates to:
    -Camouflage Net
    -Binocular Telescope

    I lost it for a minute there laughing my head off haha, I remember when I too was a noob and tried buying binocs for most of my tanks XD

    And one other thing.
    Don´t know wether i was the only one, farming XP on my LTTB, and after the patch release … yes, you guessed it, the XP was still with the LTTB, not with the LTG as it should have been, concerning the patchnotes.

  7. Bill grey says:

    All arty ammo bought with cr +gold stolen by wg during patch.
    Not in patch notes…
    So i guess youre falable, but are you able to admit your mistake?

    Id say yes.
    Its your mm corruption youll never acknowledge.
    Moved from player wr unbalancing, to good tank shit tank mm unbalancing.

    Oh no wg, the secrets out.

  8. Don’t do the update. WE LIKE IT AS IT IS. If you do you are going to cut your own throats. Quite a lot of players WILL DELETE THE GAME. Do you want to lose everything.
