Server and Network Errors After Update 2.7

Ever wondered how World of Tanks Blitz works under the hood? We rely on the powerful BigWorld engine to form the backbone of our game. BigWorld helps us calculate if your shot penetrates an enemy’s armor, ensures your tank responds how you want it to, and allows you and 13 other tankers to battle on the same battlefield.

When we released Update 2.7, it also included the first update in two years to our BigWorld engine. Despite serious preparations and considerable testing beforehand, the switch wasn’t without its hiccups. Since Update 2.7’s release, some players have been frustrated by short-term lag spikes and freezes, often occurring during long play sessions or while our servers are under heavy load.

We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused and assure you that we’ve been working to fix these issues as quickly as possible. Since the release of Update 2.7 we’ve released eight server updates and have been working tirelessly to squash server bugs as they’re identified. We realize things aren’t perfect yet, but we’re confident that with forthcoming game updates the problem will be solved. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
