Apparently, the Russian version of the 0.8.9 patch is finalized and ready to download. EU and US versions are not available yet, but all indicates that the patch will indeed hit the server on times, that were announced earlier: Wednesday for RU, Thursday for EU (and possibly US). The patchnotes will allegedly feature one interesting thing: for the first time, the reasons for various tanks’ rebalance will be listed along with the changes. In other words, developers won’t tell you just what they changed, they will also tell you WHY they changed it. How exactly will it look I have no idea, but I am looking forward to it.
