Tankers,

Encounter: teams go to capture no one's base in the map center, or to destroy all enemy vehicles to win. The mode is activated for El Halluf, Murovanka, Steppes, Ensk, Himmelsdorf, Ruinberg, Malinovka, Sand River, and Siegfried Line.
- Added two new maps: Airfield (North Africa) and Widepark (European town).

  • "Senior Technical Engineer" - for researching all vehicles of all nations, existing at that moment.

Vehicle rebalancing and changes:

- In order to reduce the amount of issues with "questionable" non-penetration/penetration, reworked the system of damaging with HE and armor-piercing shells. In some cases there's a possibility of damage and critical hits increase from HE shells.
- Changed operation of Large Aid Kit: a constant bonus of "+5% to avoiding critical damage to crew" works till the end of the battle, even when the Aid Kit is used.
- Changed operation of Large Repair Kit: a constant bonus of "+10% to repair speed" works till the end of the battle, even when the large repair kit is used.
- Now Repair Kit fixes both tracks, if they are both damaged.
- Added compensation to a team hit player, proportionally to the caused damage.
- Now, if a player team damages someone, and the same shot damages an enemy vehicle, the decreasing team damage coefficient is considered for this shot.

Huh? What exactly are you talking about?

You want the progress in the test server to transfer to the production server? Haha. Along with the 10x increase in XP/credit, right?

Not to mention that the last 'beta' ended when the game was officially released, and everyone's account was wiped at that time. So when has progress ever 'saved'?

so when do you take our accounts and put them in the test server? like how the last one had our information "frozen" then put into the test server.

Probably no more than a week before the test servers become available. But possibly more, possibly less, does it make that big of a difference?
