Update 1.20 is coming, Commanders! It introduces the sunny Oyster Bay Random Battles map and a series of balance improvements to three other locations. We’re also adding the new Tournaments tab to the main menu of the Garage to help you find and join the tournaments and challenges you’re most interested in. On top of that, this update features rebalancing changes to a large batch of vehicles (including seven Tier X tanks) and brings cool new goodies to the Items for Bonds section in the in-game Store.

New Map: Oyster Bay!
The second-place winner of Recon Mission 2021—Oyster Bay—hits Random Battles! This is a picturesque 1,300×1,300 m summer map in a tropical setting full of sunshine and vivid colors. In addition to the heavenly landscapes, you will find here spacious battle zones for all vehicle classes. Put on your sunglasses, grab your sunscreen, and go explore Oyster Bay!
TOURNAMENTS AND CHALLENGES IN YOUR GARAGE
To make it easier for you to find and join tournaments and challenges you want to participate in, we’re adding a new Tournaments tab to the main menu of the Garage. If you want to join a tournament, click the corresponding button to open its web page and choose a team or create your own.
Also in this new section, you will find another tab for ongoing challenges. If you want to prove yourself and take part in the challenge you like, join it by clicking the respective button.
VEHICLE REBALANCING: A NEW ITERATION
We’re updating the characteristics of 27 vehicles from different nations, tiers, and types, including seven Tier X tanks—the Centurion Action X, the Т57 Heavy, the Rinoceronte, among others. We’re also adjusting the parameters of the surrounding vehicles in their branches and updating the performance of seven Tier VI and VII tanks. Depending on whether they perform beyond the scope of their tier performance, we’ll improve or reduce their effectiveness in battles.
MAP BALANCE IMPROVEMENTS
We’re continuing to work on improving Random Battles maps and adjusting three battlefields: Airfield, Steppes, and Mines. They received a series of balance tweaks to make gameplay more comfortable for both teams.
NEW ITEMS FOR BONDS
We’ve added more cool tanks, unique customizations, and a piece of Improved Equipment to the Bond Shop, Commanders! Head to the Items for Bonds section in the in-game Store to get your hands on the following: the 113 Beijing Opera; the Lorraine 40 t; the T23E3; Increased Shell Resistance; and spectacular 3D styles for the 60TP Lewandowskiego, STB-1, and E 100.
