I had it happen twice last night, but without the error message.  Solid black screen, and nothing could bring it back.  

I've also had problems loading it from time to time.  I'll get the "WoT has encountered an error an needs to close" message.  Then I try it again immediately and it works fine.  

Just uninstalled and deleted everything, and did a fresh install.  I'll see if that makes any difference.

Your firewall thinks the game is spam? Make sure WoT is allowed in the firewall, its all I can think to say. I have connection problems myself. I havnt been able to connect for 3 days since the update except it DID let me connect last night one time for some odd reason. If anybody reads this please give advice. I got two tickets going and they tried saying my system wasnt up to snuff which is a lie. I think they might not know what they are doing over there OR they dont want to deal with it. Anyway any help would be appreciated. Thanks and good luck on the spam issue.

I just got it, and my firewall wasn't on at the time.  It has nothing to do with that.

This is new and not connected with a local firewall.  Seems to be kicked off by something on the game side. Does the support team monitor these forums or do we need to go to a preferred site. Luckily is only happening between games for me. If this happened game and in a rare game when i was doing well I would be very upset.

Had this happen to me last night (Oct 2).  Definitely in game bug.  Happened after battle finished right before return to garage.

Is in no way shape or form firewall related on my end.

I have got this to.  What the heck is going on.  I was in a battle and tank kept going straight and then internet connection dropped and when I tried to get back in game, said it was because of spam detection.  Sounds like someone has been trying to hack my game while in play.  Any ideas WG

Just happened to me for the 3rd time. Yet all I said the whole game was "GG" at end of match!

WTF, yet spamming happens during the game by dead people as well and never get the boot!

Any game I've ever played.. If your dead, you're dead, no talking to live people.. why can't the same be done here!!

I to have been kicked form the server at the end of a battle due to "Spam Protection". I certainly haven't been spamming, so either a glitch/bug as suggested already, or somebody hates me :ohmy:

On an unrelated note, there are some rather fun emoticons available :medal::deer:

It happened to me once also while in the game and freezing, one of the MANY times over the last 6 days that I can't connect to their server, including their websites being super slow when the issue occurs.

I've had it once or twice on 8.8 - and just got it on the new 8.9 patch. 2nd game. Hadn't typed ANYTHING into the chat, and had been sitting still in enemy cap when battle ended not firing at anything. Didn't get back to garage before connection interrupted. Something is broken in the client/server code I suspect.

I'm starting to get this all the time now, and it started just tonight.

Since the spam_protection warning can come up when logging in, I'm guessing by "spam" it means too many network re-connections, and not in-game chat.

it's probably the NSA shutting the net down between the US and Russia trying to keep snowden from talking to his mom or some baloney.
