There are plans to release Micropatch 0.9.18_2 on April 27th, 2017
Maintenance will begin at 03:30 Pacific Time (10:30 UTC) and will last approximately one hour.
During maintenance, the World of Tanks servers will be unavailable.
The matchmaking mechanics were adjusted as follows:
- The top tier of three-tier battles will comprise the same number of tank destroyers, SPGs, and light tanks (of both Platoon and solo players) in both teams. For each of these vehicle types, the number of vehicles will be the same in both teams (i.e. they will be treated separately). In addition, the top tier will comprise the same aggregate number of medium and heavy tanks in both teams, but these vehicle types will not be treated separately.
- The top tier of three-tier battles can have only one SPG.
When maintenance has completed please restart World of Tanks using the launcher file (WOTLauncher.exe) and ensure your game client updates properly.
If automatic updating has been enabled in the launcher settings, make sure that the client has finished updating.
