Update 2.3 - It's on its way! [Updated]

Tank Commanders,

Update 2.3 will come equipped with updated Clans features, and some new content too. We say, keep an eye out on the Canal map. Something is not quite what it seems there, but we have no idea what it is. It's up to you to go on an adventure to find out.

Something for Your Japanese Crew

A hungry man is an angry man. Don't leave your crew members hungry. Japanese crew will now be able to bring Onigiri with them to the battle field!
