Update 9.7 Launches in North America

Posted by Suzie Ford on Apr 23, 2015  | Comments

Update 9.7 Launches in North America -

Wargaming has announced that v9.7 has officially launched in North America with other regions set to update later this month. 9.7 brings new French tanks into the game, as well as a new Team Battles Feature, the "Overlord" map and changes to the Random Battle matchmaking to give the newest players a chance to battle with others of the same skill level.

Team Battles will allow groups to create permanent 12-player squads with up to seven at a time able to participate in ranked play. Team Battles are also tied into regional leaderboards for even more competitive play.

The French tank tree is expanding as well with two new light tanks and five new medium tanks.

For Random Battles:

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.

The Overlord map takes players to Normandy in a map filled with the chaos of the D-Day invasion.

Check out all of the 9.7 details on the World of Tanks page.
