[World of Tanks] Update 9.17.1 Announcement and Server Downtime

Attention Tankers!

 

We will be performing server maintenance on Thursday February 23rd, 2017 for the release of Update 9.17.1

Maintenance will begin 12:00AM PST (08:00 UTC) and will last approximately six (6) hours. During this time, the World of Tanks servers will be unavailable.

 

Should you encounter any issues while updating the client please contact our Customer Support department by submitting a help ticket.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

 

Please see our article HERE for a list of the changes

 

Update

We've verified a couple bugs with the Type 5 Heavy after the 9.17.1 release in RU:

With 9.17.1, any players who had “Accelerated Crew Training” enabled will be unable to uncheck this option after the patch.
With 9.17.1, if that option is enabled, the new gun can only be researched with Free XP.

Hey WG.. awesome that the Type64 is finally going HD.. but I gotta ask.. is there a timeline for the RamII model to be upgraded.. the eight sided wheels are looking real dated.. love the tank, would love a model to match it.

Thanks for the updates. They will be well recieved, excpet for the so called"nerfing" of the Grille and E5. Personally, I do not believe any tank gets "buffed' or 'nerfed', just more balanced.

 

On that balancing, when the hell is WG going to fix the Match Making???  I completely understand how the MM works, but seriously, FIX IT! The whole MM needs an overhaul; not really a band aid solution.  Going by the tonnage of the tanks is not working. So many unbalanced teams. With XVM being allowed into the game, you can see just how unbalanced the teams are.  Sometimes there is over 1000 WN8 difference between one teams best player and the worst player on the other side (the side that is going to get decimated). Would love to have the MM work with the tonnage of the tanks and the In Game WoT Personal Rating. I believe that that would provide a more fair, balanced and fun gaming experience. When you look at the Win Chance (XVM) and you see nothing but Unicums and Super Unicums on one side, and nothing but a sea of red/orange on the other side, that is not fun, fair or balanced. 

 

I know alot of tankers in here will say they do not run XVM or that they have turned it off which is fine. However, that does not remedy the fact that MM is so broken, it is not a very fun gaming experience. Even if you are a Unicum/Super Unicum, how much fun is it when there is no challenge to the game for you? How boring is that? A GG is not a 15-0, 13-2 but more of a 13-11, 14-15,etc. THAT is a fun and exciting game!

 

Anyway, that is my thought on things.

 

Badger

As it seems wargaming has no time or interest to improve or correct the utter garbage match making/ map rotation.

The "ONLY" thing wargaming cares now is selling premium tanks!!! Smile_sceptic.gif

I have not played this game since last September 12,2016.  I spent over $1200 on this game to support the company & save my time.  I played to the point where I had to admit to emergency & stay there for 3 days (I celebrated my new year there)....Right after I was released from the hospital, I rushed to my computer to play like nothing had happened to me because I missed this game so much.....To be honest, I will never regret that this game sent or make me to hospital.  Last year I played less & less.......& then stopped because MM seemed not fair.  I couldn't tolerate easy wins/losses anymore.  15-3 or 3-15 are so common.   Once I have lost my hope & faith in this game, it would be hard for me to return.  This upcoming patch is not for me because MM is still the same.

Since when can the word improvements be substituted for nerfs?

Except being in the hospital, there is pretty much the same story here on my end of playing WoT less and less.

The utter garbage match maker an map rotation is a turn off for many people here on this game, having loosing streaks and playing the same map multiple times in a row...Thanks but no thanks!

The worst part seems that wargaming really gives a flying [edited] about these two topics because they fixing the MM for more then a year now and what happend...NOTHING!!!

The only thing what changed since I started playing this game about three years ago, a new premium tank gets introduced every two to three month, so wargaming makes their profit margin.Smile_sceptic.gif

Really looking forward to this update.  Sure glad to see my 85M and M10 Panther getting some attention, waiting to start playing them again.

The tank filter system is going to be nice and other garage improvements sound good also.

Why don't Wargaming take one server offline now, update it, and then update the other then?  That way players could continue to play virtually uninterrupted.

Because they are connected and synchronized even though they are separate servers. For instance if you change servers while your tank is still in a battle after you've been killed, you still get the results when the battle is over.  Battle results are simultaneous tracked and stored.

You can't take 1 night off every few months?

That would be to much convenience for their customers (the player population) and to much inconvenience for wargaming!
