WoT: 1.18 Common Test Patchnotes


Main Changes

New Branch of Italian Tank Destroyers

Six new tank destroyers (from Tier V to Tier X) have been added:

Tier V—Semovente M41
Tier VI—Semovente M43
Tier VII—SMV CC-56
Tier VIII—SMV CC-67
Tier IX—Controcarro 1 Mk. 2
Tier Х—Controcarro 3 Minotauro

Improved Visuals for Destroyed Vehicle Tracks

Technology for the physically correct behavior of knocked-down vehicle tracks has been added.

The Track Physics setting has been added. The new technology will be used when the Standard or higher option is selected. If the setting is disabled, the visuals for destroyed vehicle tracks will be displayed as before.

This setting will be enabled by default for the High-Ultra presets, as well as for the Custom preset and the Object LOD parameter set at High or better.

Matchmaking Changes

A limit of no more than one wheeled vehicle per team has been introduced.

From now on, only one light tank or wheeled vehicle is allowed per Platoon. The limit is applicable to Tiers VII–X.

The SPG matchmaking rules in Random Battles have been changed. The matchmaker will aim to keep the majority of battles within the range of 0–2 SPGs per team. Players should expect much fewer battles with 3 SPGs per team.

Known Issues

The technology of physical behavior for destroyed vehicle tracks has not yet been configured for the new branch of Italian tank destroyers.
For vehicles featuring twin tracks (Object 279 (e), T95, Mäuschen, VK 168.01 (P), Mauerbrecher), pairs of destroyed tracks follow the behavior of a single unit.
When applying 3D styles to vehicles that include additional elements, such as side screens or fenders, the models of destroyed tracks may overlay the models of such elements.
In battle replays, destroyed tracks are not displayed in the same places where they were knocked down.
On vehicles with side screens/fenders, track models may overlay the models of such elements.
