Technical Test of New Game Mechanics

In other languages: vi th zh-tw ja

Tank Commanders,

We're reworking the game engine of World of Tanks, so expect many changes coming your way! These changes will allow us to add new features in future, inclusive of features planned for future updates to WoT:

  • New functionality for high-tier vehicles in Rampage mode;
  • Computer-controlled "bots" will be added as opponents for newcomers in their first battles;
  • Major changes in the way that enemy vehicles are detected.

In order to collect statistics related to the performance of the changed engine on different system configurations, and for the detection of potential problems related to new features, Wargaming is conducting an early short-term technical test, slated to last 48 hours from the time of release.

Want to send us some feedback about the technical test? Do make your way to the forums to let us know how you feel. Your opinions may influence changes to future Updates!

Technical Test of New Game Mechanics is now ACTIVE.

To participate in the test you need to do the following steps:

  1. Download & Run the installer found here.
