Heya Tankers.

 

As some of you have found out - we released a 3.6 client update for Android! The issue with this is that it was...a bit early. So please do not download the update or else you will not be able to log in! 

 

There is a fix being prepped and once it is rolled out I will update you. 

 

We will be compensating everyone a day of premium time and extending the New Moon event by 12 14 hours. (Grind period now ending on Feb. 11 at 6AM PST)

 

We thank you for your patience and understanding! 

 

UPDATE: It looks like the issue has been resolved! You should be able to log in normally and connect! We have also extended the extension by 2 hours!   


  Please read the WoT Blitz Game and Forum rules.

People on Android have already missed one reset this AM, with their device on auto-update. With reset in 45min away and no new patch in the store, these people lose one reset at a minimum. Possibly/likely two by the time the patch is out, due to whatever personal schedule. 

 

It should be noted that the extra 12 hours does not include an extra mission reset.

Extending the grind period by 12 hours won't help those who missed a set of missions because of the error.  They'd have extra time to complete the final set, but no new set.

Here's my conspiracy theory:

 

War gaming purposely release it early so people would lose this playing time.  Thus making it harder to win the tanks and players will have to use or buy more gold to buy the tank.  

 

The additional time doesn't give a reset, just more time for the one last mission. 

 

Think about it...it's genius on their part...

That has been a corncern for many players on older devices ... constant crashes, unable to play since 3.5

I do appreciate the 12 hr extention but issue is 12 hr extension means no extra mission windows for the one people will have missed today ie the 8-2 (est) window.  If even ends 7pm est then extension is tell 7am. with the 6 hr and 18 hr windows people end up missing a mission set (i got mine in before my phone auto updated lucky me).

 

to be fair extension should go to 2pm est the next day to deal with the fun today.

 

Alos why do we have the 6 hr then 12 hr missions. 8-2 is work time for many, 12 hr mission sets would make more sense.

Sly,

 

The other servers get an additional mission reset due to the time extension.

 

The NA server because of the time of the mission resets does not.

 

This extension will not help us like the other servers.

 

Please let us know if:

A) we will get even more of an extension

B) we will somehow get an extra mission set

C) we will get hosed because we play on the "Никто не заботится об Америке в России" server.

 

Thanks!  We'd like to at least know where we stand.

You can uninstall 3.6 and download the 3.5 apk and reinstall again. I got lucky and did both server mission sets early this am or I would be in trouble as my tablet installed the 3.6 update ...

Too late at this point for anyone reading the thread.  The afternoon reset has already happened.

Hold on. I always assumed the NA reset times were bonkers because they were set globally to suit eastern Europe and Asian players as there's much more of them. I figured the reset would be conveniently in the evening for them with the long 18 hour stretch going through the night.

 

So this is not the case?

From one of the players in the my clan that speaks Russian, and so he can find stuff out on the RU forums:
 

Block Quote

 The next reset on the RU server is in 10:30hours And the EU in 17:30.

So they will get a new set of missions. We won't

 

Some of the folks in my clan like to poke about and what not...

I would just like a comment from WGNA stating that we aren't a complete oversight, and that someone put more then 3 minutes of thought into this, and the solution wasn't a knee jerk reaction feed by a vodka induced oopsy...

 

I guess we will see, huh?

Well that sucks. The reset time has been a major pain for these events. It's 11am for me out on the West Coast, so basically my only chance is to get up earlier to get time to complete missions. And now I learn that there's no reason for this? I'm not a happy camper.

Why don't we get another mission reset?  Extend it by 24 hours or 18 hours or something, but not even a new reset, that's bull!

So when you say "a bit early" do you mean really early or just a little early? When you guys at WG realeased the M60 early it was just a day or so early so does this mean 3.6 is coming quite soon, or is it still planed for the end of the month like I've heard?

Exactly. I am beyond annoyed that we didn't get any time to grind it because of these crashing issues
