World of Tanks is a Free-to-play game made by where players take the role of their favorite tanks to do battle. As of right now, there are over 200 different vehicles in the game from historic Germany, the Soviet Union, France, China, Japan, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, Italy, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.


There are five different types of battles: random battles, team-training battles, tank-company battles, clan battles, and platoon.

Random Battles

In random battles, players are randomly assigned to one of two teams. Players can be paired up with one other person so that they can still be on the same team as their friends but as of an update, you can now play with three of your friends in a single platoon. If your playing as a tier X tank, there is a possibility you will be placed into a Grand Battle, which is 30 vs. 30 of tier X tanks.

Grand Battles

Grand battles are where two teams of 30 tier X tanks fight for supremacy. For every tank and base lost by one team, they lose supremacy points. A team wins by destroying all opposing tanks, capturing all bases, or battle time expire with the most points.

Team battles

Team battles are 7 vs 7 team battles, in which are created through a room. Players must have a tier VI-VIII tank to participate. Please note that the auto search may reject certain tanks (Etc. Strv S1).

Clan Battles

Clans are persistent groups that players can join. Once in a clan, players can participate in Clan battles, which occur on a simplistic map of Europe. For those who do not want to join a clan, but still want to participate in the clan battles, a mercenary pass can be bought to join any clan in need.


Platoons are 2-3 player groups that are capable of going into random battles together.

Ranked battle

This mode is only for tier X tanks only. (Add more info to this section)

Training mode

In this mode, custom rooms can be made for a wide variety of activities, such as relaxation, Clan training, and much more. However, you cannot earn any currencies in training rooms. Repairs and everything are free, except for consumables, shells, and directives



Tanks can be customized using the in-game garage. You can research and buy new modules for your tank which include new guns, tracks, turrets and much more. Many tanks can feature a two- or three-toned camouflage scheme. Camouflage makes the vehicle harder for enemy vehicles to detect while adding visual flair. Decals are also available for players to further customize their tanks.

Maintenance can also be done here. When opening up the service, the player can customize the tank's shells, consumables, and supply settings as he/she wishes.
