Together with the launch of the new game mode, WG advanced the 1.6 WoT release date. The update will be released immediately after the end of the Homefront event.
Previously, 1.6 RU was to be released on August 6 (Tuesday), but rather will be released on the night of August 5-6. The rest of the regions as always will get the patch a day later.
Homefront will work until 03:30 Moscow time on August 6 (before the servers are disconnected).
Whether the patch will be preloaded is unknown.Remember, that with the release of 1.6 from the game will be permanently withdrawn mode “Team battle”.
