As predicted, today, the Russian server did recieve the 0.8.6 patch (EU server will most likely recieve it on thursday and US server next tuesday). The patch notes are a mess (they are HUGE, I really don’t envy the google guys translating them), but apparently, some things were ommitted from them, namely the T69 tank changes: - ground resistance for the T84E1 suspension on solid ground reduced by 8 percent and on medium ground by 7 percent - T95 suspension turn rate buffed from 40 deg/s to 42 deg/s and recieved a ground resistance buff of 8 percent on medium grounds - engine AOSI-895-5 nerfed from 600 to 550hp Also, please note that when the patch comes live, all the camouflages, regular experience, crews and combat statistics will stay on the vehicles they were before 0.8.6, even if that vehicle changes tier (eg. if you had 10k XP on tier 8 arty, that becomes tier 10, the XP will stay on that arty, so you will have a tier 10 arty with 10k XP) Please note that ALL the arties will have ALL the installed unlockable modules removed, effectively becoming stock. The unlocked modules will be moved to your depot. Ammunition and equipment will also be removed from the arties and moved to the depot. Components, that will get removed from the game (for example tier 10 arty second suspensions) will be sold for their purchase price. We also have a trailer for 0.8.6. Because, you know, putting up a video, in which too many arties chew up the enemies is really a good idea for a patch, that’s supposed to actually limit the number of arties in battles: Anyway, today there is nothing much to translate really, only one retarded trollquestion: - there are no plans to allow the tank crews to retrain into pilots (in connection with the WoWp/WoT account unification)
