The RU Portal released some interesting news:
For new players, WG created a mini-client – a smaller version of the current WoT client, which gives new players the opportunity to check out how WoT feels like, without having to download the entire game. (Seb: ah, I remember September 2011, my first battle on Malinovka, where I got the Invader medal with the T1!)
So, the players will have 3 options in the launchers: SD, HD and mini-client.
The main features of the mini-client:
-reduced size (a lot).
-only tier I and II tanks available to play.
-you can play only random battles.
- Winter Himmelsdorf
The small size of the client provides, unfortunately, lots of restrictions: platoons are unavailable, you cannot use tier III and better tanks, you cannot create companies, team battles or strongholds, or training battles. Also, no missions available.
