Maintenance - September 25

On the 25th of September, 2018, starting from 8:00 CEST (24th of September, 11 PM PDT for NA), the servers will not be available for 4 hours due to the application of Update 0.26.4895.


List of Update 0.26.4895 Changes

In this update, we are removing an exploit where players could receive random Premium vehicles for free. The incorrectly received Premium vehicles (or the currency received if the players who had received them sold them) will be removed from the affected accounts. All retrofits on the affected vehicles will be compensated and the installed consumables moved to inventory.

Important Changes and Fixes

  • Leopard 2 Revolution Tier 8 Premium MBT is now available as a branch vehicle within the game for Gold (read more)
  • Added another considerable performance upgrade to the game
  • Fixed an issue that caused a large number of the infamous “ghost shells” (shells that would disappear in mid-flight)
  • Fixed several issue that could cause a game crash on some maps, especially with PvP bots
  • Fixed the incorrect rate of fire of multiple autocannon vehicles
  • Fixed an issue that caused erratic autocannon HE behavior when firing at enemy vehicle tracks – HE autocannon shells can now deal damage to external modules even if they lack the penetration to damage the tank itself
  • Fixed an issue where the game sound would sometimes disappear on certain PCs
  • Fixed an issue where some vehicles (like the Rosomak) received other types of rounds instead of the intended PELE
  • Fixed an issue that caused a major accuracy drop for some shells when switching from a different shell type
  • Fixed an issue where some guns would instantly end up fully aimed after rotating a turret, disregarding the correct aiming times
  • Fixed an issue where players sometimes did not get the crew progression boost they paid for when buying a vehicle
  • Deploying your own smoke no longer breaks the control of your own fired ATGM
  • Fixed an issue where some achievements like the Israeli Thunder had their progress reset each time the game client was reloaded and the achievement progress was brought to its correct level
  • Fixed an issue where players would under certain circumstances get into a battle on a different tank than they queued with

ZBL-08 Overhaul

The ZBL-08 was one of the worst performing vehicles in the game. In order to make it considerably more viable, we are introducing the following changes:

  • The vehicle’s Tier was reduced from 7 to 6
  • Added the Recon Package module

We also removed the improved ATGM while the stock ATGM was rebalanced as such:

  • Flight velocity changed from 120 m/s to 130 m/s
  • Acceleration increased
  • The missile now has a tandem warhead
  • The time between ATGM launches reduced from 2s to 1.5s
  • Improved autocannon feed module replaced by an improved ATGM control system module, allowing players to control two ATGMs in flight instead of just one

VBL Autocannon Improvement

We improved the autocannon system of the VBL (previously VBL TOW) Tier 5 AFV as such:

  • Increased the APDS shell damage and penetration ability
  • Considerably improved its turret traverse rate from 60 to 150 deg/s
  • Considerably improved its clip reload time from 10s to 2.5s
  • Slightly reduced the accuracy penalty for firing (by 20 percent)
  • Slightly improved its aiming time

Other Vehicle Changes

  • Terminator series, T-15, BVP Šakal: the switching time between the missiles and the autocannons reduced to 0.5s
  • AMX 10 RCR Tier 8 Premium Tank Destroyer now belongs to the Zhang Feng branch
  • BMP-3M Dragun 125: frontal maximum gun depression improved to -6 degrees and side maximum gun depression improved to -7 degrees
  • BMD-2 series: fixed the Garage icons
  • M1A1 AIM now has a soft-kill APS
  • LAV-150 90 now has fixed HESH shells
  • Rosomak and Rosomak M1 PELE rounds now fly faster (please note that the Rosomak PELE ammunition works as HESH mechanics-wise)
  • PT-85: fixed the incorrect smoke-laying angle
  • XM1A3: the 120mm HEAT round now correctly works like a HEAT-MP (deals damage even upon non-penetration)
  • Challenger ATDU: improved the shell names to Mk.1 and Mk.2
  • T-15: fixed the incorrect tooltip that stated that the 9M133-1 missile does not have a tandem warhead
  • T-90A: fixed the destroyed vehicle textures and its incorrectly appearing camouflage
  • T-72B: improved its armor to match that of a real T-72B (until now, some of its armor belonged to the T-72A)
  • Merkava Mk.3 Barak Zoher: improved the lower frontal plate material and thickness
  • Fixed the incorrect camouflage appearance on the Merkava Mk.4 and Mk.4M
