Update 1.16: Common Test 2 Is Here! (Patchnotes)

Source: EU Portal

Join the second Common Test of Update 1.16 and try out the revamped Battle Pass event.

The seventh Season of the epic Battle Pass activity kicks off in early March. It will run for almost three months and is going to be different from previous Seasons. But, just as before, you will have a long way to go through Progression Stages and two Reward Tracks. Let’s see what the new Season brings.

Battle Pass is available for preliminary testing. The progression system, values, and various characteristics that are relevant for the Common Test are subject to change after their release. Rewards listed in the game client are not final and may not correspond to those in the final version of Battle Pass Season VII.

Battle Pass will still consist of three Chapters, and you will need to choose one of them to start your progress in the Season. But the way you interact with Chapters will change noticeably. Now you can complete the Chapters in any order. You can also pause the completion of a Chapter and jump into a different one, deciding in which order to complete Battle Pass and which rewards to earn first. This will save you time and allow you to reach Stages with the most attractive rewards in each Chapter. We have also improved the reward selection screen and made it easier to use based on your feedback.

If you play without selecting a Chapter or while it’s paused, you will still earn Battle Pass Points, which you can then invest in a selected Chapter. But don’t forget to spend your Points! All unused Battle Pass Points will disappear at the end of the Season.

For dedicated Commanders who complete all three Chapters, a new Reward section of the in-game Store will unlock. There you will find rewards from the previous six Seasons from the following categories of items:

  • 3D styles (including progressive ones) for all Battle Pass Core Vehicles from the last six Seasons
  • Crew members from the previous six Seasons (if it was impossible to assign a nation/specialty to a crew member, it will remain so, as in the case of George Barton and Vasiliy Badaev)
  • Bonds

If you didn’t get some of the prizes from previous Battle Pass launches, you can redeem them in the upcoming seventh Season. If you have already received these rewards, you’ll have the opportunity to redeem bonds instead.

You can get all these items by spending Battle Pass Points that you earn when completing the three Chapters. You will continue to earn Points for the Reward section according to the standard rules, even after completing the three Chapters.

We’ve also updated the Items for Tokens section of the in-game Store. During the second Common Test, all the content and prices in this section are tests. There you will find Tier IX vehicles from previous Seasons at a test price of five Tokens each.

The seventh Season will feature three new (and iconic!) Battle Pass Core Vehicles:

They will have special rules for obtaining Battle Pass Points. And, of course, you’ll be able to earn three striking progressive styles, one for each Core Vehicle in each Chapter.


Main Changes

Battle Pass

The Battle Pass progression system has been reworked. Now the Chapters can be completed in any order. Players can also pause the completion of a Chapter and jump into a different one. Progression of each Chapter is presented in the test version.

The rewards for completed Battle Pass Stages will be credited only after selecting a Chapter. Once the Chapter is completed, the next one should be selected.

Battle Pass Points can be earned even without selecting a Chapter. Later, they can be invested in the progressions of any Chapter.

New unique 2D and progressive styles have been added.

For those who complete all three Chapters, a new section of the in-game Store will unlock, where players will be able to purchase various items for Battle Pass Points. Now players will continue to earn Points even after completing all Chapters of Battle Pass. The list of items can be changed.

The reward selection screen has been improved and the process for receiving rewards has been simplified further.

The “Items for Tokens” section of the in-game Store has been updated.
