More On: World of Tanks

World of Tanks Update 9.3 adds more tanks (because of course it does), tweaks the rules to make life harder on the trolls, and the first Strongholds gameplay adjustment.

The tanks are of the light variety and include the T37, M41, Walker Bulldog, and T49.  It also includes the Spahpanzer Ru 251, the Soviet LTTB, and T54 Lightweight.

To promote better sportsmanship, those who rage quit before their tank explodes or refuse to participate in the match will be penalized.  The specific penalties have not be described so you'll have to play to find out.

Finally in the Strongholds game, Legionnaires will be able to participate in Strongholds without joining a clan first among other changes.

You'll also get a batch of graphical enhancements applied to destruction, and the Garage has been redesigned.

September 25, 2014 ?? Wargaming today announced the global release of World of Tanks Update 9.3, introducing a variety of new top tier light tanks, in-game rules to promote fair play, and two new functionalities for Strongholds.

9.3 marks the addition of several light tank lines and brings into the mix the US T37, M41 Walker Bulldog and T49, the German Spahpanzer Ru 251, and the Soviet LTTB and ?-54 Lightweight.

Players will now be able to enjoy updated in-game rules that promote a more friendly gaming experience by introducing penalties that would affect players who are inactive in battle or exit before their tank is destroyed.

The first major update to Strongholds also introduces new functionality for Legionnaires, which gives players the opportunity to participate in Strongholds Skirmishes without joining a clan, and adds a new building, War Department, allowing clan members to easily relay distinctive special instructions to the rest of their clan.
