Update 2.6 is Available Now

The Android version of Update 2.6 is now live, but if you're having any issues updating, please delete the application and install it again. Due to the delay, we'll be credting all Android users with an additional day of Premium time on February 13.

Additionally, players may see matches with vehicles two tiers below or above your own vehicle's tier. This is a known issue.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
