Hall of Fame:

  • The Hall of Fame made it to the game client

SPG changes:

  • Post-battle stats will contain the total stun time
  • Tanks hiding behind a fence or cover thinner than 2 meters will receive a stun timer as if they’re in an open field
  • If the cover is thicker than two meters but the tank isn’t fully covered, the stun time and damage will be dependent on how much of the tank was ‘visible’ to the shell. It will be either:
