With the latest World of Tanks
update Team Battles now have permanent teams. Players' teams can now have up to 12 members with 7 battling at a time. They can even have their own name and logo (after the same team has played 20 rated matches). The addition of leaderboards - divided globally into six leagues - requires a set number of points in order to qualify for each division and ascend the ladder.
A new branch of French tanks has arrived with two new light tanks and five medium tanks. Out these, the Tier 9 AMX 30 1st prototype is a very mobile tank with one of the longest effective firing ranges of those in its tier. The AMX 30 B, a Tier 10, is another much anticipated quick tank with great view range and firepower.
In addition, new balancing rules will help newer and medium-skilled players get the most enjoyment out of matches by grouping users based on ability. Fledgling Tier 1, 2, and 3 players will find competition with others close to their proficiency, while more experienced Tier 1, 2, and 3 players will be matched similarly. These changes only affect Random Battles.
The historic map Overlord transports players to a level inspired by the D-Day Landings at Normandy. They will be thrown into a chaotic environment where beaches are littered with smoking wreckage and destroyed landing boats, combating enemies as they storm the hills.
