Object 263 Swap Cancelled

According to Milos Jerabek (development director) and his yesterday stream, changes in the Object 263 line are cancelled for now. Or at least removing/downtiering 263 itself is out of question, since Object 268 v4 appeared to be an unsuitable replacement.

Exterior Customization

Source: WoT Portal

To make your vehicle a truly individual and unique battle machine, you can customize its exterior. Update 9.21 introduces the new customization mechanics. To customize the whole vehicle or just some parts, use one of the customization methods:

  • Preset styles are a pre-made set of customization elements for all seasons. You can customize your vehicle in just one click.
  • Custom styles are a collection of different elements, which you can apply on your vehicle in various combinations. Choosing and combining elements on your own allows you to create a unique vehicle design for each season.

Preset styles

Preset styles are a pre-made set of customization elements for all seasons. Each preset style can include paints, camouflage, inscriptions, emblems and visual effects. You can rent a style for a number of battles using credits. High-tier vehicles also have permanent preset styles, available for gold.

World of Tanks Blitz – proposed new crew skills for light tanks

The creators of WoT want to spice up the system of perks and skills for light tank crews in WoT Blitz. Therefore, a questionnaire appeared on the internet, in which players can decide what new skill to add into the game. There are five options to choose from (the translation comes from Russian so it may not be perfect):

“Friendly Defender” – on each level, the skill accelerates gaining a hostile or neutral base by 1%. If the other ally controls the base with the player, the speed of the player’s cap increases in proportion to the speed of occupying the entire base.
“Silent arrows” – the ability is activated after 3 shots in a row of enemy tanks. When the skill is active, the player’s next hit has a 5% chance of dealing maximum damage. At each level, the chance increases by 5% (50% at level 10). After a successful shot with a bonus, the series is reset and starts again.
“Second chance” – with each level, the ability speeds up the next shot by 1% if the player did not deal damage to the opponent in the previous hit. In the case of the magazine – if the last cartridge in the magazine did not inflict damage to the opponent, the ability speeds up the loading of the next drum.
“Improved morale” – after each successfully completed action (spotting of the enemy, injuring an enemy tank or destroying its module, gaining the base capture / defense, blocking the projectile), the crew’s skill is increased by 50% for 2 seconds. Each subsequent skill level increases the duration of the effect.
“Good memory” – the player spots the enemy who dealt him damage, by 1% longer on each level.

Compensation for chat problems (EU)

After many days of difficult struggles and discussions, Wargaming finally managed to fix problems related to the chat in the game. Something that players will definitely like is the compensation provided by WG for players – which will not be known, but Ph3lan (Community Manager) says that it will be distributed next week.
