Next Major Update - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion


  • Senior Forum Moderator

6hnykJM.jpg

WELCOME to the War Thunder - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion Thread!

Here you can discuss everything related to the new update, including rumors, data mines, and dev blogs.

However, please AVOID these types of discussions:

 

Wishing for things. Some examples:

  • "I hope for Mirage 2000 next update!"
  • "Gaijin where are these vehicles!!!" <lists 10 vehicles they want in the game>

There's a separate thread for this here.

 

Vehicle spec discussions, such as armour, ammo, ordnance, guns, data sheets, performance. Some examples:

  • "I hope for these vehicles, they will balance the game. They have XYZ ordnance and will counter the !"
  • 2 page discussions about what type of ammo a new tank in a dev blog will get. Now this is fine for the most part since a vehicle in the dev blog is part of the next update, however it can escalate into completely other discussions so do be careful!

There's plenty of threads for these discussions here.

 

Bug reports, issues, suggestions. Some examples:

  • "Abrams is missing its thermals. However that's not meant to be as it had this historically. Smin fix this!!!"
  • "I think that Challenger 3 would be a good addition to British Ground tree, here are the specs for it"

You can make a bug report here and suggestion here

 

Not avoiding these example discussions will mean your post is likely to be hidden by a moderator. Any continuation after that might mean you get a warning.

You must remember that this is the most popular and active thread on the forum. Its aim is to put all of the next update's information in one place so it can be discussed amongst the community. Other discussions like outlined in the examples above can be discussed in proper forum sections. Often official Gaijin members will respond on this thread so do be sure to remain respectful! Otherwise they may just stop.

 

Please use the Danger Zone Thread to discuss Update "Danger Zone". Complaining here won't solve anything. 

 

FAQ

 

Q: What is this thread about?

A:  This thread is about the upcoming patch and future content.

 

Q: Will you add...?

A: No. We are not developers, just nosy players.

 

Q: Why isn't [vehicle] on the list?

A: Either because there is no evidence that this vehicle will be added, or because no one told me that there is such evidence.

 

Q: Why is [vehicle/feature] on the Denied list?

A: Because said feature or vehicle was denied by Gaijin developers or their representatives at some point in the past.

 

Q: Where did my post go?

A: Off-Topic comments will often be hidden (not deleted) to keep this thread readable and on topic. No need to be alarmed or comment on the disappearing post(s), if concerned then PM Forum Moderators or Seniors.

 

Q: When will we get the patch?

A: Currently our best guess is sometime in August or September 2022.

 

Q: What if I don't want to read all these pages to find out what will come?

A: Read the OP. I and moderators will frequently update it with new information.

Hackers are still in the servers and tech support are waiting for the $500 of target gift cards before they can get them out.
