World of Tanks
World of Tanks is a team-based free MMO action game exclusively focused on the armored warfare in the mid-20th century. Created by the strategy masterminds at Wargaming.net, this is a shooter with a lot of tactical elements to be taken into consideration. Choose your tanks and enter epic battles!
An advanced upgrade system will turn your simple tank into one amazing destruction machine, able to take out all the rivals that stand in your path. Choose your vehicle carefully, from fast and maneuverable tanks with less protection to the heaviest but slower machines. Or go for a compromise between the two, with an all-purpose medium tank. Whichever you choose, make sure it fits your gameplay style.
However, it’s not just the tank that will win the battles. In World of Tanks, besides being a great commander you also need to be a great team player. The combined efforts of every soldier in your team will take you one step closer to victory.
Improve your tank with the experience and credits you earn in battle so that you can research and develop upgrades and mods for your war machine, RPG style. The performance in the battlefield will be completely different with the upgrades. World of Tanks is an authentic game, recreating over 150 tanks produced in Germany, Soviet Union, and the United States with incredible fidelity. Try some legends of the 1930 – 1950 period, including some prototypes that we’re never unleashed in the battlefield.
World of Tanks is a shooter with a high strategy element, where teamwork is key. Crush you enemies and destroy most of the scenario that gets in your way, creating shortcuts for you and your teammates to explore.
Wargaming.net also publishes World of Warships and World of Warplanes.

This isnt anymore the game was upgraded too far from what you guys saying next there are more tanks,maps, etc... then for all the guys that say its pay to win no i dont think so yes you have to grind but theres also plenty of info resources you can read and watch to play your tanks, yes there are cheaters and they get ban for 7 days 1st infraction or perma ban for constant using of mods that gives you little advantage over the rest of the players but if you want to cheat go ahead get ban from the game or you can choose not to be ban and play fair, for the last some websites gives you for free a code that gives you 7 days of premium account and a premium tank to play this game for free (until the 7 day account runs out) also there is a tutotrial inside the game.
Whether you do well in a match depends on whether you got lucky with the matchmaker. If you're put in a match with a bunch of weak tanks, you'll end up with multiple kills even if you're an absolute nub. Yet if the matchmaker puts you in a match with a bunch of strong tanks, you won't be able to do any damage at all. You're just there to be a target.
It wasn't that bad in the lower tiers (relatively). I guess there are more players in those tiers, so the matchmaker didn't have to go too out-of-range to match tanks.
It is true if you don't have a prem account which I did or prem tanks which I had all of them including the Type 59 you can't make enough money to play the game. If you play a tier X tank without prem and you get ammo racked without doing damage you will lose thousands of game money.
The other way of looking at it- Better players win more, they know the maps better, know the equipment better and can put their strengths against your weaknesses. I'm a total newbie in the game with less than 200 games in WOT after 1000+ in Armored Warfare and War Thunder. I'm pretty good in those but lucky to survive 30% of the time in WOT and have only contributed in a handful of games but that is my fault and not a conspiracy of WG and an army of cheaters!
Plenty of toxic rubbish in game but no more than any other game- try Armored Warfare for example. WG do put out premiums for sale but they have their own weaknesses and not hugely OP (OK I know the E25 is back up for sale!) but WG is a business and they sell to make a profit and to develop the game.
Just chill out, calm down and enjoy the game. The idiot chatters can be ignored and if youre still so angry you need to vent on line- there is always the close button and other games to play.

This game is full of cheaters, this is why I stop playing.
Now just playing Warthunder and waiting for their tanks upgrade.
When WG nerfs tanks they say it is for game balance but when they buff Russian tanks they say it is for historical accuracy how about we give Russian tanks some game balance and the others some historical accuracy cause looking back over some of the patch notes for buff and nerfs russians get 2 or 3 nerfs and 6-10 Buffs others get 1 or 2 buffs and then get 3-8 nerfs
I started to play this game a few weeks ago, and i found it a very nice and fair game. You can buy almost every tank with free in-game coin, also you can buy many premium content with the free coins. You dont have to pay a single penny
In general out of a team of 15 players 12-13 are worse than bots. Also the game is full of bots credit leaches and afk-ers
Don't waist your time with this game.
Teamplay is a not known in the game every stand for himself and die allone.
When you want to lost time, read a bock or play Solitare its in the Time to Fun Level better.
My Grafics Card is 128MB !!
Can I Run Any game of those games ????

please help me
I've been in alpha, though nearing the end. The whole beta and i just CANNOT force my self to play the same damn tanks again.
Yes i know i AGREED to the user agreement. (World of tanks staff is pretty much NAZI to any freedom of speech, remember that. I am not exaggerating. You WILL be BANNED for any form of free speech.)
What also many do not seem to get is, they just play a new Skin, its the same damn thing that just pretty much moves faster and has a longer barrel for more damage. Ofcourse I love WW2 Tanks, i adore them, but suffering the pain twice?
As for EXP gain. Be prepared to have a horrific team set for you, who are so trigger happy, that they will shoot you at the slightest of impact. Be it accident or purpouseful.
Now why did i put that into the EXP topic? Because without a great team you will not earn any EXP, literally.
So you spent 12 minutes of your life in a camping map, your team was full of idiots who got themselves killed and you were One shot by the main battle tank. EXP rewarded: Under 100
Sounds okay right? Wrong. You need like 12000-70000 EXP. Now imagine grinding all the way up there in the most horrificly imbalanced vehicle you have ever driven. And no, it is not a Russian tank.
Now comes, favoratism. Since the game was developed by Russians, the Russian tanks are boosted to hell, while germans who are SUPPOSED to have SUPERIOR armor are nerfed time and time again.
The E-75 showed some promise before being released from the testing cages of the test server,
Guess what? It got nerfed till it was utterly useless.
Then come the Hardcore ignorant fanboys who defend the game no matter what. In they're eyes the game is perfect and there is nothing wrong with it, ever.
Sight system - Recent issue was not Seeing your opponent, eventhough even a blind wombat 10km away could SEE it.
They fixed it by pretty much destroying any form of "Stealth" your tank had left. And as a Tank Destroyer(Sniper of WoT) that is seriously bad news. Plus the fact that low level tanks lack any form of armor and are basically Self Propelled Guns. (Artillery)
The diffrence is ofcourse that the TD will later on have frontal armor and its shells penetrate, instead of explode like a grenade with a mini-nuke packed inside.
Now for the SPG, there use to be tracers to tell where the SPG was... guess what?
IT WAS REMOVED, or maybe some bug, doesnt really matter.
Now, you got NO WAY telling where the shot came from. "Why not follow the red indicator?"
Because my dear friend, the shells of the SPG got a AOE(Area of Effect) blast, which makes it impossible to tell if the shot actually came that way, or did it land next to you and cause the indicator to go trigger happy.
Credits... use to be easy to get them, toss them around like they were worth nothing. Now you'll end up GRINDING a frikking low level tank for the next week eventhough you have researced all possible modules(Parts) for it. I am STILL stuck in a Pz38(t), mostly because i cannot force myself to fight in such a poor tank. (Gun is good, fast even... armor is lacklustre and the tank itself performs poorly.. why? Because it is a GERMAN tank. So we must make it as useless as possible!)
It also seems the historical facts passed by the Patriot Russian developers, who refuse to belive Germans were Technologically superior and had better QUALITY armor. Afterall, we all know the T-34 Medium tank was not made by the Chinese... right? Right? (I am joking, ofcourse, i mean it was something built in quanity and was like something MADE IN CHINA).
Then come... the US tanks. Historically they were horrific and made grown men cry as they had to drive them into combat, and so it is in this game. Finally the Russians did something right and did not force they're patriotism onto others.
US got some nifty firepower yes, but the tanks are bulky, perform poorly and are a firehazard.
The strongest AT with the Strongest Frontal i belive, belongs to the US. And even that's frontal armor is like paper thin or something, i am not sure, but it sure as hell does not perform as expected. They lack any originality in most tanks, being either Sherman or the T29,30,32 and 34. (T30 being the tier 10) But that is also, historically correct. Afterall they were all made at the same time to see which of them is the best.
Premium tanks, they use to be the Joke of the game, meant to build up money. Well guess who builds up money on them now? The Russians, by putting a 7500 gold price tag on them, or is it 12500? Even better.
The tanks are ofcourse, Cool, to play. But for that price? Its like the stupid 90 Dollar deal on a single stupid and not to mention HIDEOUS tank and 25000 gold.
All in all...
Graphics: 7.5/10 It tends to lag even when you are flying past the requirements. (I am prepared to see fanboys calling my computer outdated or what nonsense, we are all not as poor as you okay?)
Gameplay: 4/10 It is AMAZINGLY repetitive, rewards do not amount up to the amount of time, your life to be exact, you waste on these 15 minute matches. As your tank can be blown up by the raise of the eyebrow and that is pretty much nearing the end of the game and your reward is below 100 experiance.100/49000 to go! I am so close I can almost taste the tank! (Oh but wait, you also need to buy the modules with experiance before they can be placed on the tank! So 120,000 experiance though i might be exaggerating again.)
Sounds: 10/10, I must say I love the cannon sounds and other effects overall.
Be prepared for Bugs, unfair matchup, being unable to buy the next tank you worked hard for and were TOTALLY ready to get, but turns out it's price is way outta your reach. (Sometimes 2-5x your previous tank price.)
Horrific players. (No fix on any game for that, so far.)
Spending half your life for a tank that will look almost exactly the same as the previous, probably going 2km/h faster or even worse, slower.
Armor holds no real value, a Tier 5 Medium tank can penetrate the turret armor. (usualy the hardest part on a heavy tank) Of a King Tiger. (Oh, that is also a German tank, coincidence?)
Also those who said "Perfect simulator out there" are you stupid? This is a arcade game, they even themselves said this was NOT a tank combat simulator, hence the lack of balance and fair gameplay.
Also to comfort you, they plan on making Tier 10 SPG(Artillery) as if the current ones were not too powerful. (A Tier 10 tank, bent of tanking punches, loses 41% health from a ... Uhhh.. The tiger tank SPG, only things not nerfed are the German SPGs, which were lacklustre in WW2, btw.)
All in all, again. God i suck at this. My point being, you will enjoy the game for awhile... just prepare to be disappointed when the "Super Tank" you thought you got, is utterly annahilated by the blink of an eye. Along with the outragous repair bills. (You will not be able to pay for ammunition aswell as a repair even if you gunned down 4 enemies and won the battle. Or did they fix that "Tiny" bug?)
Balance issues and tons of grinding before it gets fun.
Tanks + Warplanes + Sea warships = perspective project like "Webworldwar" =)
Rack your brain! All your arguments and the biassed criticism approaches to all MMO! Really, such quantity constant hardcore players not in each game you will meet, I don't speak about usual players who plays some times in a week. Personally I don't pay in general for games, at us children, schoolboys pay only.
Hah.. Yes, I now too will send 4 mbytes of REFERENCES to you on a heap of articles and the literature, proving my point of view. And that after an exit of "tanks" at many games online you anywhere has considerably fallen you will not read, because don't write at you! Check _ Google knows to whom disturb wargaming.net. I play because, I love tanks and I refer to them long time ago, and my grandfather was at war on those tanks ). I work in aviation centre, our employees advised developers by mail. To me project WoT, to which ONLY 1 YEAR also is interesting to those!!! Also I do not want you to surprise and pull down your world, but everything, all mmo projects have donate service and everywhere people pay!!! And in China, in ****** England, and ****** the Netherlands kingdom,ur ***** countre even Jews and those pay! All countries who for two weeks has lost the great Second World War. Simply ridiculously! )
PS actually I also used the translator. Simply there are no punctuation marks!:D
btw, yesterday, wargaming.net set new patch 0.6.6 .. so ? my advice: get fun from grandpa's tank!!!!!
You can't take the game seriously or try to play it at a competitive level, the developers aren't serious about the game and the development and bugfixing is too slow. It will take many months, maybe even a few years before this game will be playable without the constant frustrations and problems it has now.
Dont believe this info!! I have HD5450 graphics card and it can run COD7 in about 30 fps. But I run this f**king tank game, the fps of my computer is always lower than 20! Holy shlt!! The smoke, the fire, and the plants!!! They make this game lagging like hell!!!!
Totally best game! Teamplay, maps,tanks and game atmosphere all perfect !!
This game for President !!)
Потрясающая игра, удивительно, что она сделана на Пост Советском пространстве !
