World of Tanks Update 9.22

Improvements to the Matchmaker

  • The improvements to the matchmaker will ensure more even distribution among the battle types enabled by players (Standard Battle, Attack/Defense, Encounter Battle, Grand Battle). The battle type selector will consider the history of the player’s previous battles. The Grand Battles will not come in a succession.

Improvements to the Vehicle Customization

  • The lower panel of the customization interface will contain the Applied sign for elements that are applied to the vehicle.
  • Increased the clickable spots for the Emblems and Inscriptions.
  • When purchasing customization elements, the Purchase and Exit text will be displayed to players. If a player does not make a purchase but only changes a customization element (elements), the Apply and Exit text will be displayed.

Changes to the Ranked Battles

Changes in the new season:

  • Now a season will last 21 days and is not divided into stages
  • Increased the number of ranks from 5 to 15
  • Reworked the conditions of earning chevrons:
    • The top 10 players on the winning team and the top player on the losing team will receive 1 chevron
    • The top 3 players on the winning team will receive 1 additional chevron
    • Players who took places 11-15 on the winning team and places 2-5 on the losing team will retain a chevron
    • Players who took places 6-15 on the losing team will lose a chevron
  • Added new functionality: rank shield. Some ranks will be “shielded”. The shield will have a particular number of durability points.
  • Reworked the interface of the main screen in the Ranked Battles for proper display of information about 15 ranks
  • Reworked the interface of the rewards for the ranks and season. It can be entered from the main screen and includes:
    • Information about the rewards for each rank
    • Information about the rewards for the season
  • Changed the art of the vehicle ranks: they were replaced with the rank points. The principle of earning rank points remained unchanged.
  • Removed the display of the vehicle ranks from the vehicle panel; the vehicle ranks were replaced with rank points in the vehicle statistics.
  • Reworked the progress interface of vehicle ranks: upon reaching the maximum rank players will be able to see the number of the earned rank points in the Garage.
  • Revised the Leaderboard interface for the Ranked Battle mode.

Improvements to the Stronghold Mode

  • In Skirmishes and Advances, the battle room commander can select a player who will use the Combat Reserves (Airstrike and Artillery Strike); it can be any player of the detachment, including the legionnaires. The player becomes the Forward Observer and uses the reserves in battle.

    1. It is listed as “added” for Tier IX as well, so “removed” for Tier X is just fine

  1. In 0.9.21 I had the OBJ 263 and the SU-122-54 . Now in 0.9.22 I have the OBJ 263 and the OBJ 268 ver 4, and no compensation in credits for losing the SU-122-54 .

    If WG had advise about that, sur I would have sold the SU-122-54 before the update … by the past they had compensate such operation…

    Like for change in XP needed for M46 when grinding M46 back, I feel wronged …

    1. I can top that, I grinded my arse off in the Obj. 416 to research the Obj. 430 II and sold 350 premium consumables to buy it in the garage, so I get the Obj. 430 II and Obj. 430 at tier 9. …or so I thought, but they made the Obj. 430 lead off from the T-44…

      Time = Wasted, Boosters = Wasted, Credits = Wasted, and it’s all my own fault for misreading the patch notes…somebody shoot me, now, please.

  2. Can some 1 tell me now will Tier 6 TD get discount (-30%) on Tank Class Spotlight: Tank Destroyers 24–26 February? Plz. Ty

  3. “Object 257: Insignificantly improved the hull side armor”

    “insignificantly”… only because they don’t want to warry the average player about the fact that this tank is actually receving a huge buff

  4. The armor they changed is the lower part of the hull side, on the 2nd test they had it nerfed to 40mm thickness, it could basically overmatch itself and that wasn’t good. Now they’ve made it 45mm thick and only 135mm+ gun calibers can overmatch, that’s gonna stop all heavy tank guns except the E100’s gun, but TD’s are gonna have a fun time chewing on the 257’s side.

    I think it’s balanced well, it does what a heavy is supposed to do against other heavies, and it gets obliterated by tank destroyers.

  5. Some friends and clanmates of me are according that they seem to have buffed the arties (particulary T92 HMC and Conqueror GC) do you have informations about this ? Does some people feel it too ?

  6. Im I the only person that noticed the changed tanks and new tanks have the worst dispersion rates ever for there class. .33 to .41 on tds . new heavies have .44 this is worst in class by far. wargaming has no limits to there greed this means more premium rounds fire bc you cant hit weak spots. Another proof to there lies and greed they said the jtiger 88 would never come back to the store well there it is bs liars greedy lowlifes.

  7. well I got T44 researched for me for free.. never played a game in T34 85 or T43… yet I’v got T44 researched… maybe because I already got the T54? that doesn’t really make sense as I researched it from the T54 Ltwt. so.. yay for me I quess!
