A Message from World of Tanks Console to Our Community

December 30, 2020

Dear Commanders,

As the end of the year is approaching, we wanted to reach out to you with exciting information you’ve been waiting for regarding current topics and game improvements, and to also give you a sneak peek of what to expect in the early weeks of 2021!

Game Experience Improvements

We thank you for your feedback and your help in making the game a better experience for the community. Many players have come forward with fantastic suggestions following the Action Heroes update. Our continued areas of focus going into 2021 will be the following:

  • HUD User Experience

Improving readability, feedback and battle information.

  • Tech Tree

Speeding navigation and improving “at a glance” readability.

  • More Statistics

Adding more detailed information to the garage tank and module stats as well as post battle results.

  • Commander tanks and skill assignments

Making it easier to find and see your Commanders and what Tanks they are on and which skills are assigned to them.

Game Information

Your messages have come through loud and clear! We have heard your requests for more information and have received a lot of support from you for the more detailed streams we held after the update.

In January, we’ll increase the frequency and details on our game information, and will be communicating more regularly about upcoming features, releases, and events than ever before.

We’re excited to let you know that if you enjoyed 2020’s activities then you’ll definitely look forward to what we have in the works for 2021, including both fan favorites and novelties alike!

Stay tuned to our channels throughout January to learn about all this and more!

Artillery Balance

Artillery is a tank class that is the source of passionate discussions in our community. We do not ignore the feedback that many players have provided regarding its impact on the game and are committed to make it a fair and interesting experience for Artillery fans, friendlies, and enemies alike.

We will be following up in early 2021 with updates regarding Artillery before any changes are implemented in the live game.


We’re making holiday tanking as exciting as possible this year. By popular demand, from December 22nd until January 5th, we’ve brought back the +1/-1 matchmaking event you love on the live server!

We are constantly evaluating the efficiency and balance of the matchmaking systems after each event. We’ll continue to do so in 2021 to make battles as exciting and enjoyable as possible.

You can expect further information about matchmaking in early 2021.

More Holiday Events and Activities!

In the meantime, you’ll find a cornucopia of in-game activities available this festive season, from a collectible gift Type 98 Ke-Ni Otsu waiting in your garage, to the popular Draugen Challenge that gives you a chance to claim a rare Tier VIII Swedish Medium Tank!

If curious, you can discover more in our WoT’s Happening This Week! article.

On behalf of the Wargaming Chicago Baltimore team, we wish you a very merry festive season and happy winter tanking!
