Yesterday, I was playing World of Tanks just fine, but today I went to launch the game, and every time I hit the play button, the launcher disappears and nothing happens. I've looked at various other threads with this issue, but none of them really solved mine.


Here are some things I've already tried:

  • Check and repair game integrity
  • Restart my computer
  • Run the game from WorldOfTanks.exe instead of the launcher
  • Delete the World_of_Tanks folder from %appdata%
  • Completely uninstall and reinstall the game


This is the entirety of my python.txt file:


worldoftanks (compiled at 12:47:53 Jun 12 2018) starting on Mon Jun 25 15:21:36 2018


2018-06-25 15:21:36.191: INFO: [Config] Command line: C:/Games/World_of_Tanks/worldoftanks.exe wot_wait_for_mutex


There's nothing intense running in the background when I try to run it, and I don't have any mods installed. Not sure what to do.

Uninstall the game ,then delete %appdata% wg file,then run ccleaner.If that dont do it try rolling back your vid card drivers.After that if its still doing it,curse W G.Also a good driver remover tool is still a handy thing to have as removing vid drivers always leaves remnants.Running ccleaner after removing drivers should work also.

Check your firewall settings. You probably got b!@#$ slapped by an update that reset your settings to default.

Geez, Wargaming.... what the hell are you doing?  Last few weeks have seen numerous updates crashing the game, crashing our computers, crashing the launchers.


It is time to rethink how you do business with your end-users.


It is time for you to remove your new updater procedures.


It is time to hire proficient programmers - use the people that know how and have a proficient track history at doing so.


It is time to remove and reassign all these other people that are being 'TRAINED' to replace your proficient employees.




As usual, Thursday update downloaded, updated, then... YOU GUESSED RIGHT ... critical error, see logs.  




I have been through this drill so many F@#&*%G times, within test servers, live servers, sandbox servers, it's an insult to your players to screw up an update.


I am not going to chase a repair tree to fix this.


Fix your procedures.

THEY screwed up the update. You shouldn't have to reinstall the game because of their incompetence. i have same issue.   these WG dummies don't  even test their patches.
