HI guys, I have been searching the Internet, and I wonder if decreasing my Mac Book Air 2011's resolution from 1366 x 768 to 1280 x 720 or 1152 x 648 will increase the performance of WoT? Thanks!

Yes, though a 2011 era Air, especially the base model, is very much garbage for games anymore.  1366 X 768 gives it a struggle, anything lower is possible but you start losing key things like a usable minimap and team lists.

You can also try decreasing the '3D Render Resolution' in the game's graphics menu. That really helped my MacBook Pro stop crashing during Frontlines, so if you're having trouble with performance in regular battles, that should help. It makes the game look even worse, though.

Yup, it is garbage, will try to get a new laptop by the end of the year. Will try decreasing the resolution, see if it works.

I’ve tried that, it works ok, but there are still lag problems.
