Welcome to World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition

Here you will find the most frequent questions / problems that you might run into. 

 

 

1. Why do enemies keep disappearing?

- Here at WoT, you will not find your simple point and shoot style game. The Spotting Mechanic is a very complex and strategic system which plays a major role in the game. The following link is a great place to learn the basics on how it works. 

Chieftain's Survival Guide to Spotting Mechanics

 

2. I'm getting shot by invisible tanks! WTH?
- This again is due to the Spotting Mechanics. Some tanks have a better View Range then others and are able to see you without you being able to see them. Please view Question 1 to learn more about them. 

 

3. I keep getting placed with Tanks that are higher Tier then me, why?

- The Matchmaking system is based on "Battle Tiers", which is different than your Tanks Tier. Different tanks get placed into different Battle Tiers, such as Scout Tanks. They can be placed with Tiers 4-5 higher then theirs. Please use the link to look at the complete Battle Tier system to see what you can be matched with. 

Battle Tiers

 

4. Is there a way to select the server I want to be on?

- Yes! There are two ways you can do this.

A.  When in Garage, Press Start>Options>Game> At the bottom you will see where you can select your server. You will need to restart the game to be placed on the new server.

B. When you launch the game, go to 

 

5. I am trying to sell my vehicle but I get a "Failed to sell, You cannot sell any more vehicles today" message.
- You can only sell 5 tanks per "Server day". The server resets at 00:00 (Midnight) PST. So if you get this message, just wait until then and you will be able to sell tanks again. This limit is there to help protect your account, even if its from your own friends or kids.

 

6. Are you looking to learn more about game play and how to use cover and angles to improve your skills?

- In this section of the forums you can find some helpful threads by Chieftain.

Chieftain's Survival Guide Section

 

7. How does the "! Detected" alert work?

- It will show the alert when you are looking in the direction of an enemy thats looking in your direction, thats within your View Range.

8. What are the different types of Exp and what is an Elite Tank?

- This thread should explain everything you need to know.

Exp and Elite Tanks Explained

 

9. What  training value does the Crew Bar represent?

- Empty: 50%

- Half Full: 75%

- Full: 100%

 

10. Where can I learn about Crews?

- You can view the Crew Q&A, including a short video here: 

Crew Q&A 

 

11. What about more tanks and maps?

- They will be making regular updates to the game adding more content as they go.

 

12. People keep telling me to put in a Support Ticket. How do I do this?

- You can read the Admins, "How To" here: How to create a Support Ticket

- Or you can go straight to it by clicking this link: Support Ticket

 

13. I hear people say that destroying the ammo crates at the base, increases the capture speed. Is this true?
- No. This is just a rumor. It has no effect on the game at all, except to provide some cover. 

 

14. When does the server day start/end?

- 00:00 (Midnight) Pacific Standard Time

 

15. When do we get the 2x Daily Exp multiplier?

- 00:00 (Midnight) Pacific Standard Time. Also remember that it's for your first Victory, not your first battle. 

 

16. Will there be events or some way to earn Free Gold?

- Yes. You can find them in this section of the forums. Good luck! 

Contest and Events

 

17. I am having trouble with loading times, what can I do?

-During the patching process sometimes the games Data becomes Fragmented. Please do the following steps to run a File Integrity Check

  • Restart the game and hold Left Bumper + Right Bumper + Y while pressing Start at the Press Start screen.
  • You should see some activity on the progress bar. Launcher.
  • This will attempt to defragment the files on your hard drive, without having to re-download entirely.

 

18. I equipped a Camouflage Pattern but it's not showing up in battle?

- There are 4 types of Camouflage, Winter, Summer, and Desert. Each camouflage will only work on the same Map Type. So you will need all 3 types to cover each of the 3 types of weather. 

  • Summer - Summer Maps
  • Winter - Winter Maps
  • Desert - Desert Maps
  • Urban - Urban Maps

 

19. Should I Capture the Base, or go for the last kill?

- You should only go for the Base Capture if the current battle situations deems it. What do I mean by this? Check out the link below, and also have a read of what one of the Admin's: Chieftain WGA, has to say about it. 

- Should I Cap?

Click to see Chieftain WGA's view.

 

20. What do the different colored tracers mean?

- AP: White Tracer

- HE: Yellow Tracer

- APCR: Red/Pink Tracer

- HEAT: Blue/Purple Tracer

- HESH: Yellow/Orange Tracer

 

I hope you found this information helpful and wish you great success in destroying your enemies!

(I will keep this updated as time goes on and find that more things need added)

This needs to be pinned to the top so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. 

Great job Max < salute >


But always, always there is the discipline of steel.

Max updated method to fix control lock up

 

There is no method to fix this if you are already in a match (this is caused by a lagged connection when connecting to the game)

 

while in garage press start

 

go to game options

 

if your control sais text field

 

toggle all the boxes then press right bumper to tab over to game settings then tab back

 

now  control setting A will be visable

 

Select whatever options you want to have then go back into the game you should be good after that

One more question. Does team damage to platoon mates count against you?

 

great post by the way


The catch 22 of WoT: 1. Rages at team for being terrible. 2. Goes on forums complaining about terrible team mates. 3. Another thread comes talking about making the player base less terrible. 4. People agree n such. 5. Idea comes to better the average how's skill. 5. People dislike the idea/ call it terrible. 6. Plays game and complains about terrible team mates.

I tried the de-fragmenting steps, but I'm still finding that my load times are upwards of 90 seconds. Makes it seem pretty pointless to play when the score is 3-6 or worse by the time I load. What other steps can I take to solve this? Surely I'm not the only one.

The Xbox 360 does not have a clan system yet. I believe you went to the World of Tanks PC site.

Thats a tough one. I would need to verify it before I can be 100% certain, but I am going with No. When your platooned, it doesn't count damage you deal to your platoon mates as Friendly Fire. So I don't think it will count it towards the ban system either.
