Blueprints: Everything You Need to Know

Researching new tanks is always very exciting and we’re introducing a new feature—Blueprints—to make it that much better! By collecting them, you’ll be able to get discounts when researching new vehicles.NOTE:The Blueprints concept is not yet finalized. This feature consists of many aspects and is under active development, so there will be adjustments in the future.

General Overview

Blueprints are special items (exclusive to Rewards for Merit) that will drop with a certain probability when playing Tier V-X vehicles. They are not purchasable for Credits, Gold, real money, etc.

Blueprints can be used to get discounts when you research new tanks, which means they save you time and boost your progression in World of Tanks. Pay attention: The discount will be granted on the research cost of the tank, but not its modules!

The more effective you are in battle, the more likely you are to get a Reward for Merit and each Blueprint you earn corresponds to a specific vehicle. These items are available for tanks of all branches and nations from Tier II to Tier X, including vehicles that you have already researched. NOTE:The higher the vehicle Tier, the more Blueprints it’s made up of and with every Blueprint you receive, your discount grows. This means if you collect every single Blueprint of a specific tank, you will receive a 100% XP discount on the research cost of the vehicle.

Blueprints for a specific tank are automatically applied. They immediately reduce the amount of experience needed to research it, but do not affect its cost in Credits. 

Track the Number of Collected Blueprints

To make it easier for you to keep track of how many Blueprints you’ve already collected for a specific tank, we’ll introduce a special progress bar, divided into sections. Each time you receive a Blueprint, one of the respective sections will be filled in.

If you earn a Blueprint for an already researched vehicle, it will turn into a universal or national Blueprint. 

  • Universal Blueprints are suitable for tanks of any nation.
  • National Blueprints can be used on vehicles of their respective nation.  

National and universal Blueprints won’t give you discounts until they are converted to Blueprints for a specific machine. To do this, you will need a certain number of each.

For vehicles of different tiers, the number and ratio of national and universal Blueprints will vary.

  • For example, in order to create a Blueprint of a Tier IV vehicle, you will need 1 national and 4 universal Blueprints.
  • For Tier V vehicles, you will need 2 national and 6 universal Blueprints.
  • For Tier X tanks, you will need 4 national and 12 universal Blueprints

WoT: 1.4.1 Patch Release Date

As various sources estimate, the release of the update on the RU server is scheduled for March 19 (the night from 18 to 19). Two new mod folders will be created: /res_mods/1.4.1.0 and /mods/1.4.1.0.

The EU & NA servers will probably receive the patch the next day, March 20.

Note: the patch brings random rewards, blueprints, new crew skins. Nothing much really.
