PvE Team Matchmaking

We’ve changed the way the team matchmaker assembly works for PvE missions – from now on, each team will have at least two vehicles with frontal armor thickness equal to (Tier*33). This ensures that the matchmaker will no longer assemble teams that aren’t capable of withstanding enemy fire.

  • After pressing the “Battle” button from a Match Result window, the queued tank will be the tank from the match results instead of the one selected in the Garage (that was the earlier case)

  • Fixed several voiceover issues with the fourth Special Operation
  • Erik Zaytsev renamed to Andrey Zaytsev in the fourth Special Operation dialogue
