World of Tanks (WOT) Blitz is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game that involves strategy and experience
Whilst I normally focus more on real simulation games I always thought of WOT as an arcade style game (from what I saw in short clips in videos) but having a deeper look today made me realise this is far from the case. There is a lot of choices that go into the type of tank, country of choice, strategy in battle, choice of upgrades, training of crew, and the ballistic mechanics that add to the realism.
Back in December 2013, the game had 75 million registered players worldwide and a 1.1 million peak concurrent players so it has a major following. It debuted as an eSports game at the World Cyber Games 2012 and is playable across multiple platforms.
World of Tanks Blitz is free and playable on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. There is also a version of WOT for XBox and PS4. One tip is before you create an account have a look for online invite codes that will give ytou some extras to startout wiith.
The video below just touches on the choice of nation, type of tanks, and their characteristics - see https://youtu.be/QFon-E7-R1E. Another valuable starters guide is a video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS6E5H_yhXc.
