Improved Field Modification: Common Test

Source: EU Portal

After completing the test of Field Modification on the Sandbox server, we carefully analyzed your feedback and all the data we obtained. Many thanks to all the active and dedicated players who supported us and joined the test—your help was invaluable! Following the test results, we improved certain aspects of Field Modification that were widely discussed during the Sandbox testing.

We’re now ready to take the next step and invite you to participate in the second Common Test of Update 1.14, where you can try out the newest version of Field Modification. Join the test and share your impressions about this adjusted feature!

Field Modification: A Feature to Tweak Your Favorite Tanks

Let’s take a quick look at the core mechanics of Field Modification and how they can benefit your favorite vehicles.

Field Modification is available for all Tier VI–X vehicles (including Collectors’, special, and Premium vehicles but excluding rentals and vehicles from various special game modes, such as Steel Hunter or Mirny-13). In a nutshell, Field Modification is a set of tools for fine-tuning specific technical characteristics of your tanks, which will become available once they acquire Elite status.

[UPDATE] Global Map: The Thunderstorm Event

In the announcement of the upcoming Thunderstorm event, we revealed some details about pre-battle screen improvements and changes to player movement permissions. However, during testing, we encountered a technical issue which requires more time to completely resolve than is left before the start of the event. As a result, we have decided not to risk the event’s stability by implementing these planned changes. Therefore, the mechanics of the pre-battle screen in Thunderstorm, including player movement permissions, will remain the same. We appreciate your understanding and wish you good luck on the battlefield!

July 22 Micropatch

Due to the update, the World of Tanks servers and portal will be unavailable on 7/22/2021 between 04:00 – 04:45 UTC. In this micropatch:

There will be two new folders for mods: /mods/1.13.0.1/ and ./res_mods/1.13.0.1/.

WoT Ranked Battles 2021/2022 – Possible Reward Speculation

As you probably know from the full 1.14 patchnotes, there is already a mention of 3 seasons of Ranked Battles in a 10×10 format. We are waiting for the first season this fall, and the other two in 2022. But the most interesting thing is this quote from the official description:

“For completing each of the three seasons, you will be able to receive a special style for Tier X vehicles, and at the end of the 2021–2022 seasons, valuable rewards and a unique Tier X vehicle.”

Now it remains to decide what kind of tank it is. But there are few candidates, only 3 (2):

• 114 SP2 (🇨🇳China, TD-10, promotional);
• Object 268 variant 5 (USSR, TD-10, promotional);
• Object 780 (USSR, HT-10, promotional).

🇨🇳114 SP2 – since 1.13 (the last patch) it is being tested by supertesters, and also in 1.13 this tank was given to them. The price in gold was added and the tags: “Secret” and “Testable” were removed. Thus, the tank is completely ready for release.

Object 268 variant 5 – “reserve tank”, which has been in storage for several years. In 2016, it went to ST (Ob. 268 5), with patch 0.9.15 the tank was tested by supertesters. With the release of WOT patch 1.11 (December 2020), supertesters and devs started testing the Obj. again, but after that absolutely NO changes followed. It was rumored that we would see it on the Black Market in 2021, but this did not happen, therefore, most likely, the release was again postponed. By its tags at the moment, this tank is not yet ready for release.

Object 780 – we don’t even take this tank into account, because it went under another event and had some features related to the 10th anniversary of WoT (which was not removed yet from the model). It has not gone through any extra tests for a long time (last time was in 2020).

There are simply no more candidates for tier X.

Thus, with a 95% probability for the upcoming ranked battles, according to our colleagues at wotclue, the main prize will be the Chinese promotional TD – 🇨🇳114 SP2.
