It was a fantastic game and I have spent a lot of time and money on it, for this reason I can't put it down but WG have ruined it over the years by turning it into a 90's arcade game, small, corridor'd maps with battles that last 5-10 mins. Big maps dominated by the EBR scourge, super fast scouts with wheels that can absorb anything thrown at them making it a nightmare for slow heavies,tds and arty. If someone asked me to recommend it I honestly couldn't.
Normal ammo has a rng attached that is simply awful forcing you to use premium ammo that does go where you aim most of the time, this means you need to buy a premium account. Tanks you research are usually not as good as the cash tanks but beware if you buy the latest offering chances are it will not be as good as the next one to go on sale. Don't get me started on my poor type 59 that I bought only to see it nerfed 2 weeks later.
There is a plus side...with a risk of losing your account you can download aimbot or other cheats, earn yourself some really op tanks and if you get found out (WG finally admitted a 'few' people do cheat) you have 2 warnings before a final ban and you get to keep your ill gotten gains. That's how a lot of top clan players did it early on with zero risk as WG refused to acknowledge the cheating going on and now get the lions share of gold rewards by dominating the competitions in said op tanks. I feel sorry for the many good players out there who are now regarded with suspicion who did earn their op tanks fair and square.
This leads to my final reason, the heart of WOT, clan wars, what's the point if you can't compete on a level playing field?
Want to voice your concerns? Forget it, the forum is guarded by the top clans who will troll you into silence.

I have been playing WoT for just over 5 yrs, it just gets worse and worse. If you do not pay you do not win. I have purchased premium time and tanks as well to get nothing on return.
When War Gaming "fixes" things or changes something it winds up being worse. WOT is the only online game I play, I play teir 1 - 9 . Not the best player but not the worst either I am an average player around 52 to 56 % . And it is impossible for me to get any better with the way the game has changed.
The things that need to be addressed are never addressed, such as match making, no tank should play higher than one teir above theirs. Rng really sucks and needs to be done away with. Damage standing needs to be addressed as well, why should anyone loose their standing just because someone else played the same tank and sucked or done better hell you have earned that standing. The autoloaders are for people that can not play a one shot tank and should be removed, they took away some of the American autoloaders get rid of all of them.
I do beleive that Wargamming is now just out for money and care nothing for the player base the game is broken and may never be fix. STOP FIXING what isn't broken.

Dishonest company.Advertise dishonestly.dishonest match making. dishonest support teams. dishonest game design, If trust and integrity is something that is important to you, do not play their games. Difficult to get regulators to take action against these guys because it's owned by russian oligarchs and is based in corrupt Cyprus.

Absolute terrible game, full of bots and players who just want to sit the back of the map regardless what tank they have.. I stopped playing for a few years come back and the game now is even worse. I suspect half the bots are from wargaming.net themselves due to a stagnation in numbers. Its just terrible. To top it off I come back and all except 1 of my premium tanks have gone, I had about 7. I also would love to know how the new light tanks are able to absolutely destroy heavy tanks. Game is just unbelievable.

Every new tank line is overpowered compared to previous so people should grind and spend money on it... Previous tanks always getting nerfed and unplayable, even premium tanks that people actually paid real money for... So that players should buy new premiums etc. This company is obviously cheating on its player base. Honestly, I think this Wargaming should be investigated by legal authorities for customers fraud and WOT should be banned in all civilized countries, especially in EU and USA.
Not to mention very unbalanced match making (MM)... People think they win and lose, but actually its very unbalanced MM that decides if you win or lose.

I quit throwing money at this "game" 5 years ago . I did support WG when it was in closed beta . But now 2019 . it is full of kids that really have no idea about tactics or team play . TBH , the game is dying and WG just bring out pay to play tanks etc . to make you spend your money , but do little for the broken gameplay . Please feel free to play it ..... But please spend your money elsewhere.
This is based on the NA ( central server )

I play World of Tanks for 4 years now. I never spent a single dollar on the game and I can tell you that I love this game. Yes, some things could be done better, and yes, it lacks a bit of balancing but a company that manages to keep me hyped about their main game for 4 years and more is a good company and they certainly know what they are doing

Spend your $$$ here and just waive it goodbye. They will take your cash for an in game tank, and a few weeks or a month later your $50+ item is changed so its not worth having at all.
It's like buying a top of the line toaster, and a few weeks later the company takes that toaster and gives you one from Fischer Price instead.
There is also ZERO customer support and an apparently clueless management team. Game is in rapid decline now anyway.

You pay to play and then pay to win.
They have totally made this a Russian bias game with as many tricks and trolls to make sure you lose games unless you pay for premium ammo or accounts. FU WAR GAMING I QUIT!

A joke of a company... they just profit from players with their greed and have re.tar.ded devs/admins I've got 3 days ban for reporting a player who for no reason pushed a guy of the cliff, i pushed him to show him how it is, he was shooting me and pushing for the rest of the game. After sending replay to them to get this guy banned i got ban for 3 days!!!!!

When I started I notice a problem. if your tank has rapid fire it will destroy any tank not matter the cover and armor. so it make it pointless to have a medium, light, tank destroyer, or artillery that can't rapid fire.

RNG is obnoxious, when you want something to hit it won't when you want to, even when you stand perfectly still, your damage for some Reason doesn't kill the other player by 1hp 80% of the time, they present you some sales that are way above your allowance (by 60% at the very least) and what's worse?, They take away your beta award vehicles and items and they give you a flag, a bit of gold (1$ worth) and make the changes for the worse (I.e: Worse dispersion on the ships in WoW and shells that won't kill in WoT)
Just don't, it will raise your blood pressure and kill you slowly

I began playing wot console on Xbox 360 continued until the Xbox one only to experience the polar opposite of what a good game should have been. I spent money willingly ($130) per month only to experience no change in my experience, the player base is very toxic and I was threatened by a person on Xbox live who dox'd my mother's home address saying they were going to burn the house down while she slept....so me being prior military exploded back to only to have Wargaming and Xbox live permanently ban me from Xbox live for defending my family. Now here we have another addicting trash title wows legends with their toxic brainwashed followers enjoying trash and if anyone says anything negative about it the brainwashed followers will threaten you. People complain about their games yet there they are still playing it expecting change that's insanity and utter stupidity. Those like Spartan elite43 are NOT to be trusted as they are paid Wargaming shills, I do not recommend this game for children, adults, animals or their turds.

All the products of Wargaming are a complete waist of time.
They are all base on the outdated , under developed , abandoned game design of World of Tanks.
The games they produce are a major superficial content design with a massive FINANCIAL MONEY ORIENTATED ONLY company with its CEO , Victor the senior developer from Bielorus Victor Kislyi, founder and CEO of Cyprus-based World of Tanks developer Wargaming, has a net worth of over $1 billion money extorted from the player base over years of lies and promises to its player base.
Horrible experience DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY PRODUCTS FROM THIS COMPANY

game play is officially crap and that you lose over 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999% matches than win matches. plus their banning system is officially crap and highly unfair where anyone who gets mad for being on a crappy team and losing over 30+ matches straight get the ban hammer and the hackers are getting away with it with no penalty. and the rules that get people banned when they get mad is highly unfair to them when its the hackers that are officially ruining a good game.

Having played all 3 of their main titles i can say that they are not bad to play.
However do not ever spend money with this company.I purchased items via Mobile phone which took 14 days to arrive as an electronic purchase!
It should take less than a second.
i then spent hours upon hours chasing them, only to receive automated responses i was ignored for 5 days after my initial refund request. the automated reply did not convey this
customer service is non existent and treat you with suspicion rather than a valued customer. Their command of English is also very poor.
My greatest gripe with all three titles is the fact that they are so money grabbing with constant events transparently designed to squeeze as much money out of the customer as possible.
they are a secretive and dishonest company who openly allow the use of 3rd party software (hacks)
Think very carefully about purchasing anything from this Belorussian company that make spurious investments in Cypriot property!
