It’s fixed! №50

In this digest we would like to tell you about our continuing work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder on the website special section.

Polishing the “Privacy mode”

During the past week you’ve been trying out the new function that allows you to hide your nickname in battles and streams. Now it’s time to use your feedback as a basis for a few tweaks to the Privacy mode.

Some players didn’t realise that Privacy mode was enabled as soon as you entered your fake nickname, so we reworked it into a simple toggle switch. You also don’t have to think of a fake nickname anymore — now when you enable Privacy mode your name will be simply shown as “Player”.

When watching a client-side or server-side replay, both your nicknames will be shown: “Player” and your real one in brackets.

Centurion Tanks Now Turn Faster

Over a dozen vehicles from the Centurion family are now much more agile when turning in place. Just as we did it with Shermans recently.

You can try it out already for yourself.

Eyes Wide Open

We’ve already implemented such a change in War Thunder, but back then it affected vehicles ranked V to VII. Now we’re doing the same thing: adjusting the size of view angle limitation for ground vehicle gunners, but this time it’s for vehicles ranked I to IV. To keep gunners comfortable, we have increased the field of view to match the reserve vehicles such as Pz.IIIE and BT-5.
