World of Tanks – 1.6.1 Patch Notes | Ranked Battles Changes

World of Tanks – 1.6.1 Patch Notes | Ranked Battles Changes

Main Changes

Multinational Vehicles

  • Players can change the nation of some Premium vehicles. These include well-known captured vehicles, vehicles supplied under Lend-Lease, and vehicles representative of historical and cultural heritage — such as the Polish T-34-85 Rudy.
  • The feature allows players to complete missions with national restrictions. Upon changing the vehicle’s nation, players can use the Crews, equipment, and consumables of the corresponding nation. A player’s configuration of the vehicle for another nation (Crew, mounted equipment) can be saved, and the operation of switching between nations is free. The legendary T-34-85 Rudy is the first multinational vehicle and players can switch between the U.S.S.R. and Poland.

  • Changed the qualification logic: Added Bonus Battles for the number of Chevrons according to the qualification results.
