Maintenance - Global Server


On the 18th of October, 2018, starting from midnight (00:00) CEST (17th of October, 3 PM PDT for NA), the servers will not be available for 25 hours due to the application of Update 0.26.4938 and the launch of the Global Server.


Please note:

  • One hour before the start of the maintenance, the MyLoot, Web Shop and other purchase-related services will become unavailable
  • Any item purchased shortly before the shutdown will only be delivered after the end of the maintenance
  • For more details about the Global Server, please visit our dedicated article and the Frequently Asked Questions
  • As a small apology for the long wait, we will grant every player 7 days of Premium Time and 2 Boost tokens of several types to each player upon the maintenance completion
  • The Public Test Server will be available for the duration of the downtime - we've added artillery to the Global Operations mode for you to try out

List of Update 0.26.4938 Changes

This update brings a number of mechanics changes required by us to launch the Global Server.

In this update, we are providing a compensation of 1125 Gold to the players who purchased the Battle Hardened status for the ZBL-08 vehicle before its Tier reduction from the last update. Additionally, its module price was adjusted to match its new Tier. Finally, we removed the fourth Reputation bundle from the unlock menu to reflect the vehicle’s new Tier.
