have you ever played an FPS and thought "man, i wish this game moved slower and involved driving"?
do you enjoy other vehicular combat games such as Twisted Metal, or like to drive vehicles in other large-scale combat games such as Battlefield?
are you a history buff, tank fetishist or ex-military?
if yes to any of the above, try WoT.

if no, maybe try it anyways. it's one of the best F2P games on the market, second only to League of Legends (maybe).

Yeah you do gotta you gotta explain it cuz you're wotexplain and if you don't explain wot then you aren't doing your job.

Magic can be explained though, is it physical magic or spiritual/psychological magic? Is the tank's damaged areas being changed or is our perception of what is a damage being changed? Please explain wotexplain.

i support the change; a TD still has camo until it strikes which leaves the element of surprise intact, but cuts down on the mechanical abuse.

As it was said before Angle your armor.
To explain this a little further.
In the picture you can see how to angle a Tiger.
How much you can angle your tank depends on its side armor.

So you can angle a IS 4 more than a T28 prototype.

And there are tanks that shouldn't be angled, such as IS 3, IS 8, IS 7.
Basically every tank with an "arrow" like front.

Please, if you're going to respond actually be helpful. I know what an MMO is. From what I've seen WoT is just a slow paced, tactical shooter. If there were an overworld that these individual matches affected the flow through like in Chromehounds or some other game mode that runs a multi hundred player count 24/7 then I would call it an MMO. As it stands, all I see is a shooter.

A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO and MMOG) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting large numbers of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet.

The name even has "Online" in it

Okay, Imma slow this down just for you. All MMO games are online. Not all games that exist only online are MMO games. The keyword is simultaneously, or in other words, within the same game-space. Payday was a 4 player coop shooter so it is not an MMO because your "simultaneous" experience is capped at 4. It isn't massive, it's just online. Never played Blacklight though, so I wouldn't know.

oh ok. I see what you mean. I just assume that MMO is a game that has a lot of people playing the same game where you can play with those people in the game online. What you just described MMO to me sounds like a MMORPG with a (I forgot the word I think it's dynamic environment. well it's basically the environment reacts to outcomes of events in the game).

RPG is anything you can roleplay in. Skyrim is an RPG. RPG has no bearing on the definition of MMO. While MMO is very difficult to define and isolate as its only true meaning is just a ******** of players. I believe most would define an MMO as any game that has a large number of players in consistent presence or interaction with other players.
Chromehounds had a 3 month campaign where players chose a nation and fought for them, but the battles were compartmentalized in simple multiplayer matches that yielded points to territory control. Hell, even the whole twitch plays pokemon could be considered an MMO.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I played the beta of xbox WoT and it didn't seem like a game of skill. Rather, it seemed like a game of outclassing your opponents. Is this true?

i can't speak for the Xbox version but on PC it's a game of tactics and knowledge rather than a game of reflexes. things like reading the minimap, positioning your tank and using the local flora to your advantage will get you much farther than good gunnery.
