Don't know that I've ever seen patch notes in a support article.  But here you go folks.

 

Pardon the formatting as it got jacked up a bit on a copy/paste. 

 

Most of this (maybe all) is listed in the article on the portal.

Patch 1.6.1

Created 5 hours ago

 

Patch 1.6.1 will be applied at:


WoT NA 12:30 - 06:30 AM PDT Wednesday, October 9th

Patch notes:

 

Main Changes

 

Multinational Vehicles

  • Players can change the nation of some Premium vehicles. These include well-known captured vehicles, vehicles supplied under Lend-Lease, and vehicles representative of historical and cultural heritage — such as the Polish T-34-85 Rudy.
  • The feature allows players to complete missions with national restrictions. Upon changing the vehicle's nation, players can use the Crews, equipment, and consumables of the corresponding nation. A player's configuration of the vehicle for another nation (Crew, mounted equipment) can be saved, and the operation of switching between nations is free. The legendary T-34-85 Rudy is the first multinational vehicle and players can switch between the U.S.S.R. and Poland.

 

Changes to Ranked Battles

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

 

Exterior

  • Added new styles available for Gold in the Exterior interface:
    • The School Series (American School, Soviet School, etc.): One style per nation.
    • Ranger: A universal 2D style for all nations for all vehicle types.

 

Fixed Issues

  • The Operation: Object 279 (e) Campaign mission Union-6. Don't Stop Me Now is updated.
  • The Commander's voiceover in Frontline mode is fixed.
  • Removed the button (X) of switching the movement/shooting modes in postmortem.
  • The Situational Awareness effect is correctly displayed in the vehicle comparison interface.
  • Distinguished Service medal display is fixed.
  • The Artillery Strike impact area display when playing in autoreloader vehicles in Frontline mode is fixed.
  • The mismatch of the number of Base capture points in the battle performance badge and in the Battle Results is fixed.
  • Fixed the issue where base capture time did not update after leaving the zone and then driving back into it.
  • Fixed the issue of the hull lock not working for tank destroyers after playing a wheeled vehicle in Frontline mode.
  • Added detailed descriptions for Combat Reserves in the window displayed via right-click.
  • Considerably decreased client hanging when researching vehicles and modules.
  • Vehicles for special modes are no longer displayed as appropriate for completing Missions.

 

Known Issues

  • Players can re-train Crew members to special vehicles currently not available in the game.
  • There is no protection from spam-clicking on the minimap.
  • Vehicle type icons in the extended vehicle panels do not change their color dynamically, when selecting the Colorblind mode in battle.
  • The order of events for received damage is sometimes mixed up in the damage log.
  • The text of Mission conditions is not displayed in the congratulation window, provided that the required vehicle type is specified in the Mission conditions.
  • The client cannot be maximized to the full-screen mode, provided that the player is having a Skype call.
  • The vehicle tiers in the screen displayed upon pressing TAB are not centered relative to the vehicle icons.
  • When a vehicle hits the ground without damaging modules, the sound of taking damage is played.
  • Shaking aiming circle in the 16x and 25x magnifications in the Siege Mode during the Frontline battles.
  • The reticle indicator remains on the SPG after switching to the Artillery mode, if a vehicle partially intersects the red line.
  • Events at the end of the battle are not synchronized with the text of the battle result.
  • In some cases, automatic repair/replenishment of ammo and consumables after a battle does not take place, when the amount of credits on the account is sufficient.
  • In some cases, fallen trees fall through the terrain.
  • The consumables are not replenished from the Depot, if the player does not have enough credits for a complete automatic ammunition resupply.
  • Notifications about crediting WoT Premium Account compensation for server downtime are missing in some cases.
  • When previewing a bundle in the Store, the compensation value for a rented vehicle is displayed.
  • The Battle Results are missing information about deducting Bonds in case of automatic resupply of Directives.
  • In some cases, when playing in Platoon and changing the map blacklist, it is not updated.
  • Vehicles take damage when ramming into stationary objects on the map (a tree, rock, or house) after falling from a small height.
  • The Ranked Battles award class for Seasonal Crusade and Citius, Altius, Fortius! are displayed inappropriately on the Portal.

 

Downtime: Will be approximately six hours

 

Global Map Downtime: The Global Map will be disabled from October 9th 05:00 AM PST until October 11th 05:00 AM

Is there any chance you can include an indicator on the game center to indicate servers are offline (green = on, red = off) and perhaps even include a message in red that says in advance (for example:  Servers will be offline from XX:XX till XX:XX Date for maintenance/patch/or other.  It is so much faster than having to run to the message forums to find out.

I just tried to log in as I'm curious about this nation changing this on the Rudy and it's still down

 

6.5 hours and counting, that's some serious downtime for maintenance and a patch that doesn't seem to add/change all that much and it took my computer a while to update my client as well so I have a feeling there's more in this patch than the notes suggest but it will be unlocked in a later patch as usual

Once again another epic fail. Give you a time when they'll have the server back online and NOPE. These guys just cannot get it right. I am losing more and more faith in the game and the team of folks running the show. But they'll come up with some blinged out tank to sell the kiddos to keep making their money. Don't spend any on fixing the problem. WOW

We are getting them next season but seeing as that account has no 10s it wouldn't affect you either way.
