WoT – 1.13 Release Patchnotes

Main Changes

High-Explosive Shells

Changes to HE Shell Damage Mechanics

  • HE shells interact with the armor at the point of impact. Shell fragmentation on the armor does not cause damage. The burst affects only destructible objects (trees, fences, etc.).
  • When an HE shell hits enemy armor, it will always cause damage (although, sometimes it can be low) due to spall created inside the enemy vehicle.
  • HE shells can penetrate destructible objects and screens, including tracks, guns, etc. When interacting with destructible obstacles, the penetration value of HE shells decreases similarly to that of AP shells. When interacting with screens and modules, the penetration value of HE shells decreases by an amount that is equal to three times the thickness of the screen/module.
  • The probability of causing critical damage to internal modules and crew members was decreased.
  • The basic parameters of HE shells remain the same.
  • The icon of HE shells was changed for all vehicle types except SPGs.

The armor penetration indicator was improved. It now properly displays the probability of causing damage with HE shells:

  • Red—probability of causing damage is extremely low.
  • Yellow—damage will be caused, but not in full (without penetration).
  • Green—high probability of penetrating armor and causing full damage.

Messages regarding shot results were added:

  • Four messages were added: “Screen not penetrated”, “Track not penetrated”, “Wheel not penetrated”, “Armor not hit”.
  • The new messages allow players to understand why no damage was caused after a hit.
  • The new messages work for all shell types.

Changes were made to the technical characteristics of vehicles with HE-based gameplay.

Hints for loading screens that appear after pressing F1 were changed.

Some interface text and elements related to HE shells were changed.

New settings in the game client were added, and the operations of existing settings were revised.

SPGs

The concept of three shell types was implemented for most SPGs (the usage of a shell with stun as standard ammo) in the game:

  • Shell 1—HE shell with stun, a large burst radius, and low damage per shot. This shell type cannot damage internal modules or injure crew members without armor penetration. It has a low shell velocity, but the trajectory is more comfortable for firing.
  • Shell 2—HE shell with no stun, a small burst radius, and high damage per shot. There are no restrictions for critical hits. This shell also has a higher velocity but a lower angle trajectory.
  • Shell 3—AP or HEAT shell with high penetration but relatively low damage per shot. The trajectory of this shell type is the flattest and travels at the lowest angle to the ground.
  • The shells are roughly equivalent. There are no special shells.
  • Missing shells for SPGs were added (new Shell 3 and new Shell 2, in some cases). Unnecessary shells with similar parameters for the same guns in different vehicles were removed.
  • The hit effects of SPG shells were reworked.
  • The HE shell icons for SPGs were changed. The icons of stunning and non-stunning HE shells for SPGs are different.

The battle interface for SPGs was changed:

  • Each shell type will have firing line indicators that inform you whether this shell can reach what you’re aiming at.
  • Each shell type will have a timer that shows how quickly the shell will reach the target.
  • A camera position indicator (zoom scale) was added.
  • An alternative camera control mode in Artillery Aim was added (the camera moves forwards or backwards and rotates around the SPG’s location).
  • By scrolling the mouse wheel, you can switch aiming modes from the regular top-down view of Artillery mode to Trajectory View.

A separate tab with Artillery Aim options was added to the settings in the game client.

  • The option to enable/disable firing line indicators inside the aiming circle for different shell types was added.
  • The option to enable/disable the camera position indicator (zoom scale) was added.
  • The option to enable/disable the smooth camera zoom was added.
  • The option to enable/disable the automatic aiming mode switch was added.
  • The option to select the camera control mode in Artillery Aim (standard/alternative) was added.
  • The option to select an aiming mode when switching to Artillery Aim (last used/selected in settings) was added.

New features to counteract SPGs were added:

  • SPG shell tracers were made brighter.
  • Field of fire markers (SPG hit markers) are now displayed on the minimap.
  • The indication about incoming SPG fire (Sound Detection skill) was added.

The mechanic of quick shell-type swap was added via the reworked Intuition skill.

Sound effects were reworked.

Shell parameters were changed for most SPGs.

Hints for loading screens that appear after pressing F1 were changed.

Some interface text and elements related to SPG shells and new skills were changed.

Changes to Blueprint Fragments

When creating a blueprint for a specific vehicle, if you don’t have enough national fragments, you can substitute them with the national fragments of an allied nation (formations in the “Second Front” Personal Missions campaign).

Recon Mission Mode

In this mode, players will be able to try out maps that are in the late stages of development. Game features:

  • Battles in Recon Mission will follow the rules of Standard Battles.
  • Battles in Recon Mission will take place in vehicles Tier VIII and higher.
  • Battle results will be added to the statistics of Random Battles.
  • The battle economy will be the same as in Random Battles.
  • Personal Missions, Tasks, and Tour Objectives will be unavailable, but you’ll be able to complete other battle missions (including Daily Missions).
  • 9 maps are now available for your exploration. There will be 3 launches, and 3 maps in each one.
  • The maps are ready in terms of gameplay, but they are at the initial stage of art development.
  • The mode has a progression that includes 50 battles (the player should be among the top 12 on their team by Battle XP earned). Its completion is rewarded with days of WoT Premium Account, directives, camouflage patterns, a medal, etc.
  • After playing a certain number of battles, players will be able to complete questionnaires of two types: general and detailed. General questionnaires will become available to players after 20 battles in the mode; detailed questionnaires will be available after six battles on a specific map. In both cases, the player should be among the top 12 players on their team by experience earned.
  • The most popular maps, determined by players’ opinions, will be considered for addition to the game.

Battle Mode Selector

The battle mode selector is now displayed in full-screen mode.

Each available battle mode is represented by a separate tile.

The mode time contains information about the status, rules, availability, schedule, and mode rewards, as well as a link to the page with detailed information about the mode.

The tiles of some modes have an alternate display that contains information about the player’s progress in the mode. For example, the Battle Pass level and the number of points to achieve the next level.

On the Random Battle tile, players can select their preferred battle types (Assault, Encounter Battle, Grand Battle).

Battle Pass: Season V

The content for the new season was updated.

The interface of the main screen, the screen for reward selection, and the congratulation screens was improved.

Information about the vehicles in the 3D style selection window was added.

Integration with the Frontline and Recon Mission modes was implemented.

Ranked Battles 2021-2022: Season X

The Ranked Battles format was changed. For Season X, battles will take place between two teams of 10 players.

The role model and related interfaces were revised.

Rewards for Leagues within Season X were revised.

Improved versions of Turbocharger and Improved Hardening were implemented.

Directives for Turbocharger, Improved Aiming, and Low Noise Exhaust System were implemented.

Battle Interface Improvements

New camera types were added:

  • “Commander Camera” offers additional camera zoom levels during the battle for a better vantage point,
  • while “Tactical View” gives the possibility to look over obstacles to observe enemy activity.

There is the possibility to see how much health individual allies or enemies have left. This can be seen on the minimap and in the playerlist when pressing ALT.

These new features can be configured or turned off in the settings.

Map Changes

The Minsk map underwent some changes.

  • Gameplay changes:
    • We changed the red line that marks the border of the map in some places. This will create areas with additional safe passageways and help avoid fire from enemy vehicles in the center.
    • We lowered the water level in the Svisloch River, which resulted in the formation of many hills and lowlands. We also provided additional passages through it.
    • A subway construction site was added.
    • Additional hills were added in the park next to the avenue, and foliage was reworked.
    • Cover at bases and in some other places was added. Gaps in concrete block covers were closed.
    • We also removed some objects that interfered with shooting in various places.
  • Visual and sound changes:
    • The map setting was changed to Autumn.
    • We also optimized the volume of flying helicopters and planes on the map.
    • Radio communication between helicopter pilots was added.

    1. Then don’t read it and remain ignorant.

      Stop whining just because you can’t or won’t put in the effort to read some patch notes.

    2. University is not about reading but about understanding. If you can’t be bothered to read some simple patch notes I don’t think you can be bothered to understand some challenging chapters in a book either.
