Two minor points I noticed on the log-in screen that I haven't seen posted anywhere else.  

1) Although you can exit the log-in page by hitting ESC then choosing exit the game, it is not very intuitive.  There is no indication that the ESC key is the way out.  I TABbed out and killed the process before I figured it out.  The ESC key is good and it works but you should also add a button to exit.  This is especially important when players are kicked out due to a patch.  They will find themselves, like I did the first time, on the log-in page unable to log in and unable to exit the page.

2) Also on the log-in page, the cursor should default to one of the fields.  Right now the focus is on none of the fields.  It goes toward good design principles that the focus on a new screen is explicitly defined.  I would suggest to set the focus on the Password field as that is what most people will need to enter first.

these things are pretty minor but could help polish the game i suppose.  hitting esc to leave should be intuitive for anyone who has used a PC or played a PC game and my cursor automatically goes to the WoT game box..hit tab 2x and type the password.  no mouse required.  i want them to fix the spotting system and match-maker before they even think about this stuff.

The second one is a great idea.

The first one was probably overlooked because most computer games use the 'Esc' for menu options.  I suppose this isn't as intuitive to those new to computers or computer gaming in general.  That being said, a quit button would help said people.

I endorse the addition of both:)
