Update 1.6.1: The Common Test is Here!

Commanders!

Multinational vehicles are coming to the first Common Test of Update 1.6.1! We’re also adding two new customization sets, containing unique historical looks for your vehicles. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to try out new Ranked Battles mechanics that will be implemented in the next Season. Hop on board and give us your feedback — your input is crucial as we continue evolving these features!

Multinational Vehicles

If you are interested in tanks, you’re probably aware of the unusual history of the fabulous VI T-34-85 Rudy . In our game, it fights in the ranks of the Soviet Union, but during World War II, this tank was at the disposal of the Polish units fighting in the Red Army. The T-34-85 Rudy was widely known thanks to the TV show “Four Tank-men and a Dog,” and made a significant contribution to Polish culture.

In Update 1.6.1, you'll be able to take advantage of the remarkable functionality of multinational vehicles. The first multinational tank will be the legendary T-34-85 Rudy. We'll credit this tank to all players who are participating in the testing, so you can try out this new functionality during the Common Test.

Technically, it will be the same tank, with identical battle characteristics, but belonging to a different nation (Poland or the Soviet Union). You can instantly switch between them at any time in your Garage. You will only need to move the Polish crew to it, load ammo, and mount additional equipment, if necessary.

NOTE: You cannot switch to an alternative version of the tank during battle. The choice of nation is only available in the Garage, before you roll out. Your configuration of the tank for another nation (crew, mounted equipment) can be saved.


This feature offers interesting opportunities, allowing you to boost crews from different nations and complete battle missions available for each nation with the same tank.

We really want to hear your feedback on multinational vehicles. If you like it, we’ll consider the possibility of introducing more in the future.

New Styles

You can never have too many unique custom looks! Together with Update 1.6.1, we’re adding two new customization sets, containing:

  • A unique historical 2D style for each nation. It will be available for gold in your game client, for all vehicle types.
  • A unified historical 2D "Jaeger" style for all nations, also available for gold, for all vehicle types.

We are continuing our consistent work on customization and development of new styles to make your vehicles even more refined, so stay tuned!

Ranked Battles

As promised, Ranked Battles will soon be relaunching on the Asia server, and you will get your first opportunity to experience its new and improved mechanics in the upcoming Common Test! Here are some of the highlights you can look forward to:

  • Revamped and more manageable progression mechanics 
  • Bonus Battles to speed up your climb through the ranks
  • Role experience system that rewards you for fulfilling the functions of your vehicle
  • Tantalizing rewards including gold, bonds, credits, special styles, and a unique Tier IX tank!
Please note that the settings and specific values of Ranked Battles that are relevant for the Common Test may change after the official start of the Season, so as always, feel free to share your thoughts on the upcoming changes!
