World of Tanks UPDATE 1.9 Patch Notes –
The HP and Ammo Rack Capacity Increase for Low-Tier Vehicles –
During previous Sandbox tests, we increased the HP pools of all vehicles. After we carefully analyzed the test results, we decided to slightly adjust the new HP values for all Tier I–VI vehicles.
The changes to the HP pools for low-Tier vehicles will allow:
Increased overall performance, effectiveness, and survival time in low- to mid-Tier battles, making them more enjoyable.
A more comfortable transition to top-Tier vehicles.
A more consistent durability progression from Tier to Tier.
New players to learn more from each battle and help them become better at the game faster.
Additionally, we proportionally increased the ammo rack capacity of these vehicles to compensate for the general increase in HP.
World of Tanks Tech Tree Changes –
The Tech Tree interface will become more user-friendly and simple and clear — especially for new players. After its visual update and the relocation of low-Tier tanks, it will be easier for everyone to navigate and calculate their optimal research path.
The central branch will be the clearest and simplest — this will be the branch of heavy tanks. From there, there will be transitions to medium tanks and tank destroyers. Artillery at the top and light tanks at the bottom will frame the Tech Trees. Take a look:
World of Tanks Collectors’ Vehicles –
Much of your feedback on the Sandbox tests concerned Collectors’ Vehicles and related compensation. These are some of the hottest topics in the tank community, so here are the details.
After the Collectors’ Vehicles feature is released, all collectible tanks will remain in the Garage and can be obtained at any time after the update goes live.
The maximum tier of collectible vehicles available to you depends on the highest tier you have researched in each nation. For example, having researched a Tier V tank in the French Tech Tree, you will have access to all French collectible vehicles up to and including Tier V.
To purchase collectible vehicles, you only need credits — XP won’t be required — which is easier and more convenient for both newcomers and experienced players alike. The cost of purchasing and selling vehicles in credits will not differ from the current rates. It will also be much easier to obtain Elite status for non-Premium vehicles, since you don’t need to research the next tank in the branch.
The stock versions of all tanks will be available, so after purchasing them, you can start upgrading their modules — just like regular vehicles.
The collectible vehicle is no different from its previous version and can still obtain Elite status, but much more easily.
