World of Tanks is being updated to version 7.5 tomorrow morning, which will require the game's servers to be down for approximately six hours.

The server down time begins at 1:00 a.m. on August 2nd PDT and ends at 7:00 a.m., six hours later. During this time, update 7.5 will be rolled out, which includes new content like maps, tank types, and tank destroyers. There will also be mechanic changes such as added research paths, changing tank tiers, and the KV-5 being removed from the in-game shop. On the UI front, the mini-map icon colors have been modified, the team has reworked battle and pop-up text hints, and the option to restore converted XP to the original vehicle by clicking on the vehicle checkbox in the XP exchange window has been added.

Due to the update rollout, Clan Wars will also be frozen for 24 hours, with the freeze starting at 12:15 a.m. on August 2nd PDT and going to 12:15 a.m. on August 3rd.
