Good day everyone,
So a bit of info about the upcoming 9.19.1 info was posted on the RU forum. Full patchnotes should be out in the next few days, but we have this to look forward to (or not) so far:
Today we will share with you a small handful of information about update 9.19.1 for World of Tanks.
The forthcoming update will focus on improving already introduced features that we have presented in the spring- changes to matchmaking and artillery. We will introduce a few changes to the high-level tanks from the Chinese tree, bring in the first Polish tank to the game, and introduce a new training mode. And of course we didn’t forget to add some new HD vehicles. Interested? Read the details below.
What is this about streamlined matchmaking? We tightened the criteria for vehicle types- now the teams will be better balanced in terms of TDs, lights, and SPGs by matching these classes on there place in the team list. For example, if one team has a light tank at the top of their list, the matchmaker will try to find a light tank for the top of the opposing teams list. Previously the matchmaker did not consider place on the team.
While artillery will once again be able to platoon, there can only be one vehicle of this type per platoon.
There will also be some changes to how vehicles of the same tier will be sorted in the team. Full details will be in the patchnotes.
What other changes will affect arty? In addition to platoons, we improved the targeting system- making it a bit more useful. There will also be changes to the stun mechanics: damage will be taken into account when calculating proficiency badges. In addition we considered the need for an improved interface model for artillery.”

I’ve read on the daily bounce blog that a polish premium tank is getting added
“While artillery will once again be able to platoon, there can only be one vehicle of this type per platoon.”
YES! Finally. This change was needed when 9.18 came out but I’ll take it late rather than never. Thank you WG :).
Looks like my bitching and whining about arty being removed from platoons paid off. As for the match making system in the past past has doomed the NA servers and this patch is going to make it worse. We don’t have the population to carry out this intricate platoon sourcing. I’m constantly timing out in ques. Put back the way it used to be, st least I got into games almost immediately.
Timing out? You must play on US west at weird times. US east I’ve only timed out once in the past 5 years, and US west isn’t too bad outside of peak times.
Yah the time outs occur around 11pm+. Not really late in a gaming world. So the east server doesn’t really time out? I’ll have to try it out.
don’t think so. i dunno about the NA server pop, but surely it can’t be less than ASIA’s on-average 5k-10k pop, and the MM works wonders here.
Liam, just a question: While on the support page and on the game’s official site it says you can make a platoon with any tank, in the same time in the game you cannot make a platoon with SPG. Isn’t that false advertisement? Should not that be corrected? Also why should not a player play with his/her friends while playing arty? Please explain….
Past patch…. typo 101
Finally, the Chinese might get some love. Some extra gun depression on the mediums would be much appreciated, we’ll have to see what they have for us.
A little buff to the 121’s hp/ton ratio would be nice. It is slow accelerating to its top speed.
T10 LTs still suck eggs
Type5+Maus still not nerfed
Meds are still op as hell they out take every class they need a nerd badly
Oh please be the TKS
Poland… oh my.
Here’s to hoping they dug up some real tank designs somewhere.
POLISH TANK?!?!?!??!?? . ” changes to high tier Chinese tank” Does that mean they will release the WS 111 5a ?
If they do introduce the 5A as a non clan wars, im gonna be so hyped, the 111-14 is one of my favourite tanks and im sitting around 63% in the thing. Not a big fan of the 113 tho. If they dont and still change other China tanks im still gonna be happy.
“info was posted on the RU forum” and the source link directs us to the Polish community forum (definitely EU) 😛
Ooh, what’s the Polish tank?
First Polish tank!?
Also, if there is a Maus or type 5 on the enemy team, we will make sure it is matched against a leopard on himmelsdorf
Yeah this is bothering me aswell sometimes you know you are gonna lose because the enemy has the HP (and Armor) advantage
Polish tank in WoT??? Hell is froze
Hope WG works out the bugs before launching this patch.
I haven’t been able to access my contact list since the last patch. I have to create a chat channel and text my buddy the name so he can join and then we create a platoon. Contact channel is in constant connecting limbo…..
Almost 6yrs +wg are still only just changing problems with mm, that players reported in 1st mth of beta…
Maybe by the 50th anniversary, the two players/bots left, will be able to see the patch that eliminates mm created losses?
Guys, you remember that they said: “We rather bring back all chat than let artillery platoon again” Soooo… Where’s my all chat?
I understand what WG means, creating several new fake tanks for China
Rudy not Polish enough…
If only WG would fix bugs like the Contacts being stuck at “Connecting…”
Please give stuntime in after battle report.. really annoying when you cant see that when you trying to do the 200/250seconds stun mission..
The tank will be Pudel, a German Panther captured in the Warsaw uprising, according to https://vk.com/wotclue
