Community Contributors and people working with WG report that the 1.0 patch will arrive on 20 March on the RU server, and that a day later it will hit NA/EU. After 2777 days since WoT was released, the game will finally bear the 1.0 patch name.
Please remember to redeem all the Christmas & New Year 2018 event rewards (tank discounts and female crew members) before the patch comes. If you don’t know where to apply the discounts on the tier I-V tanks, choose the most expensive tank of each tier, so you can sell them afterwards for a profit. Also, 20th March is the International Day of Happiness – hope we’ll feel the same way too.
