Today marks the launch of the first Common Test of Update 1.8, which will introduce the new Daily Quests system and several changes to Session Statistics. The latest update of Frontline and the final Season of Ranked Battles will also be available for everyone. Let’s take a closer look.
During the Update 1.8 Common Test, you’ll have the chance to be among the first to try out Daily Quests, which will replace Rewards for Merit with the release of Update 1.8. This new system will inspire you to continue honing your battle skills while enhancing your Random Battles experience with a consistent supply of useful and predictable items.
Every day, three quests will be available with different levels of difficulty: easy, normal, and hard. The conditions and rewards for completion are displayed in your Garage. All quests can be performed simultaneously, and the number and value of rewards increase gradually along with the complexity of their conditions.
Can’t complete certain missions right away? Don’t sweat! You can continue the next day from where you left off since the most challenging quests often allow a few days for completion.
After completing all three missions, you’ll unlock a bonus quest with even better rewards, which may include:
- Free XP
- A free Garage slot
- A Demount Kit
As you complete Daily Quests, a special progress bar is filled. One mission completed adds one point to your piggy bank. In addition, players with a WoT Premium Account will receive an extra 1 point for completing each of the three Premium missions. Once you’ve earned a total of 45 points, you will receive 100 Bonds and one of the following rewards: Personal Reserves, a Crew Book, or one day of WoT Premium Account.
Session Statistics are about to get even better and more functional! To make your game experience more enjoyable, the updated Session Statistics will now display the following information:
- Win percentage
- Average number of enemies spotted
- Average number of vehicles destroyed
- Survival rate
- Average tier of vehicles you use per session
An options button will also be added so you can reconfigure this feature to your liking, and you’ll be able to select the statistics you want to focus on. Do you want to track destroyed and spotted tanks, or perhaps damage received? Or maybe you want to keep track of the percentage of wins or experience earned? It’s all up to you!
In addition, the button allows you to choose how economic parameters are displayed: the total number of credits and bonds earned per session or your net income with deductions automatically applied.
Finally, you don’t have to reset your stats each day. You’re free to decide when your session starts!
Ranked Battles Season Finale
In this first Common Test, the final Season of Ranked Battles is available for preliminary testing.
After completing the ultimate Season of Ranked Battles 2019–2020, you’ll have the opportunity to spend your earned Rank Tokens on the final reward pool, which includes not only the previously announced unique Tier IX German medium tank, the Kampfpanzer 50 t, but also three gorgeous 2D styles, and other cool stuff, too! More detailed information about these prizes will be available in a dedicated article. Don’t worry, upon getting the final rewards, all your remaining Rank Tokens will be compensated by bonds—we’ll get into all details a bit later, so stay tuned!
