WoT: Update 1.18.1 – Common Test 5 Is Here!

The fifth round of testing for Update 1.18.1 has begun. Please continue to provide your feedback and suggestions in the forum.

An Extra Frontline Test Before the Third Launch

During the second launch of Frontline, some players encountered issues like freezes that tended to happen by the end of their Frontline battles. We want to make sure that these issues are resolved before the third launch of Frontline begins.

To duly explore all possible causes of these problems emerging, everyone on the test server will receive 30 Combat Reserve Points. This is enough to have every Combat Reserve unlocked before your first Frontline battle.

We have also dealt with a number of bugs that happened rarely in the mode:

  • Airstrike and Artillery Strike Combat Reserves now work correctly for those playing in SPGs.
  • The reward roster has been fixed; now it offers equipment Directives of the player’s choice.
  • UI issues now aren’t appearing when the player respawns or after they switch from the game client to another application and back.
  • The server choice window is now displayed correctly during ceasefire periods.
  • Also, several minor issues have been resolved.
