Tankers, update 1.6.1 Common Test starts today!

Patch notes are below. Check out the article for screenshots of the styles and more information.

Please fill out the poll and feel free to leave your feedback below. We will be sending out a feedback report next week.

 

Multinational Vehicles

  • Players can change the nation of some Premium vehicles. First of all, we're talking about the well-known captured vehicles, vehicles supplied under Lend-Lease, and representatives of historical and cultural heritage, such as the Polish T-34-85 Rudy.
  • Feature allows players to complete missions with national restrictions. Upon changing the vehicle's nation, it becomes possible to use the Crews, equipment, and consumables of that nation. A player's configuration of the vehicle for another nation (such as Crew and mounted equipment) can be saved; switching between nations is free. The legendary T-34-85 Rudy is the first multinational vehicle. Its nation can be switched between the Soviet Union and Poland. The Polish version has a Crew of four unique Polish tankers with 100% trained Brothers in Arms perks and a German shepherd. Players who have this Premium vehicle in their Garage, will receive the Polish Crew as a gift and can utilize the nation-changing feature.

Changes to Ranked Battles

  • Changed the qualification logic. Added Bonus Battles for the number of Chevrons according to the results of the qualification.
  • Made some balance changes to the system of role experience.
  • Implemented bonuses to Combat Experience and bonds for high performance upon passing the qualification.

Exterior

Added two new customization sets:

  • A unique historical 2D style for each nation.
  • A universal historical 2D style for all nations for all vehicle types.

I am wondering why this wasn't saved until there was more to add to it.  No bug and game fixes either?  Not making any sense at all.

Domo you missed a couple categories on your poll buddy.

 

A.  Removal of codes except for Scavnger Hunt missions. 

 

and

 

B.  The long awaited return of crew, skill reset, equipment and tank sales.

 

:B

 

Domo I know neither is your call.  ;)

 

Much looking forward to the multi-national vehicles.  Good onya WG.  :)

Nothing about this update is exciting but nothing is disappointing either, real neutral update.

I can't evaluate the "historical" styles until I see them. The "Desert Rats" style was a disappointment. :p

 

Multinational vehicles is a good idea but since I don't own a Rudy it isn't going to affect me yet.  I hope WG will apply this to more vehicles - how about the Churchill III or Pz B2?

Ugh, I just saw the 'new' historical styles. They're not new at all...they just took 3 seasons of existing camouflage and made them into another preset style. I guess that's convenient for some people, but I was hoping for totally new camo patterns.

I like the multination vehicle feature, I do not like that you essentially have to equip the tank twice if you want to use both nations.

I can assure you I am not at all looking forward to ranked battles. I did not like Steel Hunter. I ranked to 25, but I might be done with it now. I'm not sure. I'll try it again tonight, and go from there.

 

I tried ranked battles a while ago. I don't remember anything fun about them. I gave up after a few battles.

 

I find the losing of ranks to be too stressful for me. I get high anxiety playing those types of games. I know some like that stress and even do well because of it. I am not one of those ppl. It's a game. I want to relax.

To be perfectly honest i doubt i'll play ranked battles...my clan is dead, and i don't play Tier X hardly ever despite having half dozen or so (and this close to as many more).  Tier X doesn't offer much to me, but i'm happy they're giving TierX fans back a key part of the game.

Nothing in this patch that interests me and I am not lying.  Don't even care about ranked battles.  The patch needs much more meat to it than what they are offering and we all know it.

Ranked battles will be toxic.  I have a chieftan and a 260...and i am dreading this.  I just wanted the british lights to be good (nope), for non french wheeled turds to be rolled out (nope), the 430and 430 to get a meganerf (never)...and for the dogtag bug that didnt give anyone who finished frontlines early any credit.  2 questions in the feedback poll...really though.

 

Just an aside...its september and you people said over and over that the e100 was getting fixed this year.  It hasnt even hit supertest, so can we assume that to be a promise you never intended to keep?  A lot of us pay for stuff in this game, so its not like we arent supporting wargaming.  You may be tired of saying xxxx is postponed until the ammo fix, but rest assured our wallets are more tired of hearing you say it.  Feedback?  Get to work and honor your word.

Says you can "save" the crews and gear.  Guessing they're "borrowing" the return last crew mod and it'll apply to each nation separately.   Gonna further guess any gear will be set for the nation like usual.  So even if you run the same set up for each nation you'll still have to buy a set of equipment for each nation.   With the exception of demountable gear of course.   

 

Block Quote

 Your can save your configuration of the tank for another nation (such as Crew and mounted equipment).

 

 If so, then on the crew at least, hopefully they'll add that to all tanks.  And not just the multi-nationals.

Jesus Christ, WG has went from tone def to down right idiotic. Worst update in the history of WOT. Thank you again WG for pushing frivolus content like this while patting yourself on the back for your great ideas. Youd have thought after british lites, youd have taken a brake from utter stupidity, but no, you continue to drive the game into the ground and your playerbase away. Great job [edited].

Yes, but the first time you switch the nation youre switching to wont have any equipment. So I had to buy a new rammer, and vents for the Rudy on the test server because switching to poland meant it had nothing. I also had to restock its consumables and ammo the first time. Every time after the first its saved, but the first time its essentially a double dip to fully equip it if you intend to use both nations.

The multi-national tanks are the best part of this update, but it seems overly complicated to make the one tank convertible between two nations. Can't you just split them into 2 separate tanks so we don't have to worry about moving crews and equipment? They can be identical but call one Rudy-P (Poland) and the other Rudy-R (Russia). Simple and straight forward.
