12/10/2015 Q&A

- Storm confirms that new vehicle renders that appear on WG pages are not made using regular game settings, they are using higher texture resolution and different lighting system (players were complaining that WG is scamming people by showing off renders while the game looks much worse)
- 0.10 Jagdpanther II has screwed frontal superstructure armor, there is a massive 30mm armor weakspot there:

- According to WG statistics, 2 Vatican citizens are playing World of Tanks.

Had to laugh at this last one... just imagining 2 priests distributing blessings in the game with purified holy HESH!  "Ameno"

And couldn't resist to post this today:

Don't you worry World of Tanks players, I'm fixing the Chieftain for Wargaming!

Armored Warfare is Going Down

Hello Warriors,

On the 13th of October 2015, starting from 10:00 AM CEST (01:00 AM PDT), both Open Beta servers from AW will be down for four hours (until approximately 14:00 CEST - 05:00 AM PDT) due to the application of Update 0.9.1490.

This is what you can expect in the patch:

  • Corrected the "Authentication Failed" issue that prevented a number of players from connecting to the game
  • Corrected the "Lost Premium Time" issue - remaining premium time should now display properly
  • Corrected the issue where Battalions could invite only 50 players instead of 100
  • Corrected the issue where game settings and screenshots were not being saved correctly in some cases
  • Improvements to French, German and Polish game localization

And this Month's Calendar, featuring the M1A1:

More resolutions.

The armor changes too:

old below, new above

Heroes of the Derp

Hello Warriors,

if you are on EU, want to win some gold?
One of the new Community Managers for WG EU, MrConway has started a contest and this is what he has to say:

"This week we will have a battle of titans! Our old faithful derp-mobile, the KV-2, will be facing off against the Emperors one-shot-wonder, the O-I.

Whoever can manage to score the most kills in the KV-2 or the O-I will take home victory and a bag full of gold.

However, a kill only counts towards the total if you kill it with a single shot. A tank which you have to shoot more than once is excluded from the total. Tanks that were damaged by team mates count, as long as you fired the killing shot.

If kills are equal, the player with a higher amount of damage dealt wins."


  • The winner is the player with the most kills scored in a single battle
  • You must play the KV-2, or O-I tier VI heavy tanks
  • The battle has to have taken place between the 30/09/2015 and the 14/10/2015
  • Submissions have to be made before the 15th of October
  • Only random battles are allowed
  • You must not be in a platoon
  • You have to have no damage caused to allies
  • You can enter as many times as you like. Simply edit your reply to the thread with a new result, however only your best submission is counted.
  • You need to provide a full screenshot of the first page of the battle results and the detailed report, as well as upload your replay to with a link in the post.
  • In case of a tie, the player with the highest amount of damage will win
  • All non-related posts will be deleted
  • The winners will be announced in this forum thread
  • This contest is only open to players with an EU account
