I have played blitz for years and have also played on the computer for a long while. I have never had the problem of a black screen when I start the game. I have searched for an answer on the forums and have found none that I could understand.
Welcome back ...
During your absence a player, dstud208, has created a utility that solves many of the issues with the WoT Mac Wrapper through a series of clicks - the Studly Utility. The [black screen when launching] is one of them.
Look for a post by dstud208 and in his post signature is the link to download the utility. Once you have downloaded and installed the utility please do the following steps:
Makes sure that the WoT Mac Wrapper is closed/shut-down. Open [Activity Monitor] and quit any processes with [tanks] in their name - sometimes the WoT Mac Wrapper does not close all of the processes it spawns.
Open the Studly Utility [you will need to hold down the [control] key, click on [open] and then [open] again in the next dialog box - you only need to do this once as OS X/macOS will remember]
Click on [World of Tanks] then [General] then [Disable Torrents] then ]Force Update] then [Reset Wrapper] - NOTE: This will reset any custom settings you have made - e.g. screen size, etc.
Launch the WoT Mac Wrapper [wrapper].
If the wrapper needs updating then you will be presented with an update dialog box. Follow the instructions to update. The latest version is 2.0.3.
Once the wrapper finishing updating [presuming it needs it] you will be presented with World Of Tanks. If the WoT Mac Wrapper [client] needs updating you will see an orange progress bar running left to right in the bottom. Wait until it finishes [if needed]
Click on [PLAY] and you should be good to go. You will need to reset your screen size, etc.
Please let us know if this does not work.
