  1. It’s not even sure 9.18 will come on all servers yet and they’re already talking about two future patches.

    And when are HD maps ? That’s the best thing to come for now.

    1. Second half of the year, more like autumn (October?). They are coming all at once, so it will take quite some time.

      1. I guess their transition will become faster and faster as assets are used on multiple maps at once. It wont be long before all they have left to change is the map geometry for outside the arena borders.

  2. So fast,
    Until SEA Server just does not get the latest update -_-
    but, this can be a bit of good news for us, what they are planning for WoT’s future in the WG Fest. Maybe this year WoT will have massive game changes

  3. Given how devisive 9.18 went I’m suprised they’re planning to release the new gamemode so soon.

    Especially with how well their previous attempts have gone.

    1. I believe it will be something like Ranked battles in Wows. They release Ranked in seasons for 45 days at a time. And next one normally don’t appear for 1-3 months. The goal is to reach Rank 1 in multiple season to earn a one of a kind premium ship. So far the reward for reaching rank 1 3 times is a tier 7 ship and a tier 9 ship for rank 1 in 5 seasons. I not sure how they’re gonna to do this in Wot, only time will tell.

      1. It’s typical WG style. They know they fucked up, but reverting the changes would prove they were wrong. Instead of admitting they were wrong they’ll keep to it and just pretend “everything is fine”…

    1. Big companies have schedules. They plan updates and features long time ahead, just because one patch didn’t go like they planned (even that’s debatable) doesn’t mean they are gonna change their schedule for next half a year.

      1. Why do I have a feeling that the new ingame currency will be only obtainable for real money and not exchangeable for gold, but needed to buy/unlock stuff that will be a must-have if one wants to stay competitive and play on the level field?

  5. Talking about 9.19 and it’s release date. While all the while remaining stone cold silent about the issues, the feedback and how to solve them for in the upcoming release of the 9.18 patch…

  7. So, it appears that balance department’s project “Make IS-7 Stronk Again” got postponed? I thought it would be coming quite soon.

    1. It’s not said to be postponed.

      This post only shows the main content of the patch. All HD models and buffs and nerfs always come late. IS-7 wont be the main focus of an entire patch dude even if it was Gaijin in charge of the Soviet Bias department.

      1. we will see :)

        here they basically admit the patch is trash and as a conclusion they ask us to focus really hard and try to find something we liked about this patch. Most likely some strategy to keep some changes so that they don’t have to cancel the whole thing.

        1. Revert the gun handling nerfs on tier X scouts and maybe increase their viewrange again, allow 1 arty per pluton, decrease stun time and splash range, remove splashing and stunning behind hard covers and boom, patch fixed.

          1. I watched some of LemmingRush’s videos. This guy is a hardcore supporter of light and medium tanks ( He actually sold the Defender, claiming it was trash. Link if you don’t believe me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqBR_qa6L-E a sick sick man) He made a 2 hour session of playing lights and mediums, and he was the happiest kid in the world. Now arty when it hits him it does like 35 damage. You ask to decrease stun time, splash range remove splashing and stunning behind hard covers? Why the fuck would anyone play arty anymore???

            Like

            1. It’s stupid that when you try active spotting arty doesn’t even have to hit next to you and it can still track you in the open and you can be never in an arty safe position when it can stun+splash you even when you are behind walls or hills.

              Do you think situations like this are acceptable?

              1. No, I think that aside from adding the lights, this patch is worse than the previous in every single way. Whoever made these changes it’s obvious they didn’t think them through, but I really don’t understand why we have to put up with this trash

              2. I only played the first day after the patch release and mostly arty. I think i reset all 3 tanks that were capping with one shell once :)

                Like

              3. The problem is that arty now has stun AND a stupidly big splashradius. Stun is fine, but not in this way. They should choose: splash or stun. Splash can already knock out crew or modules, especially tracks. Stun is just extra annoying and more cancerous, considering arty will almost never ‘miss’ and do no damage per shot.

                I play on EU, so I don’t know how it will work out. Maybe it will be fine, but I’m holding my breath right now…

            2. Personally I would roll back the whole patch, maybe keep the new lights, and make stun shells as alternative shells for regular HE.

            3. Why the fuck would anyone play arty? Because they suck in real tanks, or they want to troll. I don’t have stats to back this one up, but artyplayers are red/orange players 80% of the time in the games I play. If you are a bit of a competitive person, I don’t think you would like to play arty. Not trying to insult someone here by the way. If you want tot carry or contribute to your team’s effort, you’re better off playing a medium or heavy tank (there are statistics to back that up).

              Arty seems to be there for trolling or ‘having fun’. For bad players it is the only way to do more damage then their own hitpoints. Or if you want to play while you are having dinner (like Circon does on streams). It’s considered to be the cancer of this game by the bigger part of the playerbase, why would you contribute to that as a serious player (assuming that you are one, because you are on TAP)?

              1. Just for your information, you are talking to a guy that played over 30k games without touching arty, and was going to play a lot more if WG didn’t give out an extra female crew member for arty missions.
                I hate to be the defender of artillery, but I use it to level the field: hit that tank that is very hard to pen, or hit that purple player that can make the difference. I think that the game will be easier to be dominated by a good player now that there is no arty (200 damage to a light on a direct hit? come on!) and with the new MM that allows unicums to have a bigger impact on the game. I think that up until now a good player was able to show he was good, even without winning the game. Now it will implicitly win the game, because he can chew at least half the team and there’s no more uncharted “Change of plan” shell.

                1. Wow. You fucking piece of shit.
                  “arty is good for the game because it stops gut players because it’s one of the mechanics that they can’t do shit about”
                  Probably one of the most retarded WoT-related posts I’ve read in a while.

                  Also, good player isn’t born that way. He tries to be good. Why should he be punished by the game for being good? Almost everybody with non-terrible aim, some map knowledge and understanding of 101 combat tactics can be unicum.

                  1. Arty shouldn’t punish good players. Good players should be rewarded for getting good at this game, not being punished by some windowlicker at the back of the map that never learned how to use the WASD-keys.

                    Good players SHOULD dominate this game, that’s why you want to get good at this in the first place. I’m not a unicum (1850 overall, 2750 recent WN8 over the last 1000 games), but I’d rather be outplayed by a purple player than being clicked on by a tomato.

        1. They wanted to stop the war against germany because they already had a war with themselves to focus on I think. That is a pretty valid reason to want to stop ar with a country actualy, it’s not them turning gay, it’s them being smart.

  8. Maybe WG will skip 9.18 update on EU/RU and Asia, while collected so negative feedbacks and now working for 9.19? As I remember was time when some updates where in asia region.
