What joystick did you get and did it come with software for keyboard/key mapping?
I think there is also 3rd party software called Joy2Key that will map keypresses to joystick buttons.

Again, don't want to start the age old "mouse vs. joystick" debate, but it's simply a matter of playing how the game works best, vs. handicapping yourself trying to get a more "sim" like experience (which this game really is not).
WoWP though, hell yes. I tried the beta with a mouse and it is just not right. Joystick for sure!

Joystick has only one advantage in aiming but it's an important one in RL combat; they can be operated regardless of how the vehicle is shaken, or what other G-forces the vehicle undergoes. They willingly trade accuracy and speed for that, in the same way that they trade speed for armor. Mice require a flat surface and a bit of space, and neither trackballs nor mice can be used very well when the vehicle shakes or undergoes a 5G turn.
For a PC game, mouse is superior as the advantage that joystick has is useless unless you are play in the middle of a 9.7 earthquake.Joysticks are useful for maneuvering as they offer more intuitive control over magnitude, so it boils down to whether you want to control position or velocity. For position, mouse or trackball; for velocity (like flying a plane), joystick.
Also, I have yet to see a joystick with enough buttons to handle WoT. You need 8 for repairs, 4 for battle comms (Affirmative, Negative, Help, and lighting a target), a way to control zoom since you don't have a mouse wheel, a way to switch to overhead view if you play arty... oh, and a trigger so you can fire.
