Release date of NA update: April 18.
Release date for the EU/RU update : 26-27 April (night).
Estimated ASIA release: 4 May

 

The 9.18 patch will be released first on the NA server (a premiere!), and only afterwards on RU and the other regions, according to trusty Russian sources.

 

This is due to the serious changes introduced in the update: WG wants to make sure that everything goes well before releasing the update to a huge audience (RU). This is an exceptional situation, as most likely, next updates will be be launched on RU first as they were before.

So NA get’s turned into a live common test server was one of the comments there... :trollface:

So it looks like they're gonna go ahead and release the crippled tier 10 LTs. Good job listening to the community as always

WG already know that this patch has a lot of negative feedback after the micro patch so why release the patch? Send everything bar the new MM - most agree this is much better then what we have - back to the sandbox for further testing.

I'm looking forward to the new patch, the main reason would be that this patch is going to have an impact on the meta. Adapting to the new meta and trying out new things is very enjoyable, at least for me.

Nah, they can keep the arty platoon change too. Maybe change it so you can platoon a regular tank with arty (because IIRC, that apparently isn't possible?), but keep it so arta can't platoon together. :hiding:

yes...everything goes very well...

all light tanks are pure turds on actual Test Sv. platoons are f***ed and misions not changed (due to MM changes and platoon changes)

 

everything is just ok...:facepalm:

That stun is so annoying better remove arty entirely, and then the nerfs on the LT's what a big fail...

 

Nothing positive to say about this patch or? haha

 

I hope the new mm is good... :great:

AFAIK they are complaining about the light tanks changes as much as us. And rightfully so.

I still refuse to believe that they are going through with the light tank nerfs, as they make absolutely no sense to anyone. There is no way WG could benefit from the changes that effectively remove any incentive to research and buy the tanks, thus stripping WG of potential income. Not to mention the outrage among players.

Like someone said (I think it's WundeWurst), BC25t is the best spotter in tier 10.

I don't have the tank but have played it on the test server, it's great. But to get there you have to get past all the light tanks haha

 

And I was busy grinding with the Bulldog, but I think I will stop that line now with that extreme long loading time for only 6 shells...
