World of Tanks 9.18 Achievements Changes

Hello everyone,

With Update 9.18 there are ten achievements that have been updated due to changes in the game. I’ve created a comparison of 9.17.1 vs 9.18 so you can have an idea of what has changed.


World of Tanks – League Emblem

Hello everyone,

First of all a big thanks to gpc_4 and God of Manchester for sharing this information with me and for sending these pictures.

An emblem for League is now available for players to buy, I believe this is just after Update 9.18 is released into a server. Both these reports are from players in the NA Server and I couldn’t find this emblem in my EU account on 9.17.1.

There will be another emblem released just for WGL Grand Finals next month, but I find it strange that this emblem is already available for players to purchase. Maybe it’s a bug or just Wargaming wants all League fans to be able to get it.

World of Tanks 9.19 – Possible Release Dates & Details

Hello everyone,

World of Tanks 9.18 has just been released to NA and other Regions are still waiting for it, and 9.19 is already in the horizon. According to the usual Russian source, Update 9.19 should start test very soon and next update it’s 9.20 and it’s already in the making.

The following dates are possible dates for the Russian Region and based on what they have released before they might be accurate, but do remember these aren’t official dates and might be wrong.

WZ-111 5A – Chinese Heavy Tank – Pictures, Armour & Stats

Hello everyone,

More details about the Tier X Chinese Heavy Tank WZ-111 5A. For those who didn’t know (me included, I completely forgot about it) this tank was already tested back in 2014, version 8.2. It was supposed to be the Chinese Tier X and players were able to play with it during the Common Test, but it was replaced by the 113 before the final version was released. At the time the tank was overpowered, basically a much better version on the IS-7, it’s been nerfed compared to what it was, but still looks it will need further changes before it comes to the live server. (if it comes at all) If the Russian Source is correct, this might be a normal tank released to the Chinese Tech Tree, at the moment the tank has a cost of 6,100,000 credits, this could mean the tank is either a replacement for 113 or Wargaming is planning on expanding the Chinese Tech Tree. (This is just my opinion and not confirmed information, more details as soon as I have them).

Please note these are Supertest details and might change before final version is released.
