Update 9.8

[h2]The Quick Commands Wheel[/h2]
Quick and smooth teamwork is what it takes to KEEP CALM AND WIN epic victories. It's high time to improve our quick commands. The first step is to update the way they look and how they are sent. Icons have become clearer while the commands are now grouped more logically. These updates have resulted in faster team coordination.

[h3]On touch devices[/h3]
  • Place the quick commands wheel button on the screen where it's best for you.
  • Tap once on the quick commands wheel button to send the "Attack!" command.
  • Aim at a specific tank and tap once on the quick commands wheel button to let your allies know that you are going to attack this target.
  • Tap and hold the quick commands wheel button, then select an icon you need to send out any other command.
[h3]On PC[/h3]
  • Click the quick commands wheel button and move your mouse as needed to send out quick commands. Forget about hot keys. 😉
  • You can also send quick commands the old-fashioned way using Ctrl.

You will learn the new controls in no time, and all your movements will become instinctive. And this is just the beginning as we are planning to roll out new commands to bring team coordination in battle to a whole new level!
