Haven't had any issues for years; suddenly as of this afternoon I can't get through a single battle without getting a "Not Responding" crash, drop to desktop, or windowed out of full screen into my desktop. Totally vanilla install with no mods whatsoever. I was playing fine every day for the last 50 days without problems. Happens every single game, now - can't play the game.

it started with the preloading of the new update. every second match is crashing to a windows "not responding". i cant even end the task, i have to shut down and to start my pc again and again. this is totally [edited]. im playing vanilla.i had never problems like this.

 

Edit: the first match still minimized the world of tanks process 2-4 times.but i can get back to the game.

Good thinking, but no. No recent updates at all! It's happening on my son's laptop, too, now - only in the last two days.

Didn't help with my issues. The strange thing is, no new driver updates were made - just started crashing. Happens multiple times per game, now

Same here. On the day of the update, everything was fine though, but today I had a crash in every match (3 in a row).

Has it been suddenly minimizing or dropping into smaller window screen and freezing? or the smaller window with black screen?

I've had to go into settings and manually switch it from full screen to window mode.  Then switch it back From window mode to full screen. Its been kind of working for me.

Its working for me but it probably doesn't for others, who knows. Its a pagan ritual at best. It doesn't need a virgin to sacrifice.

Yep. Maybe a minute or sometimes less into each battle and then the program slightly minimizes and goes black and does the not responding thing.

 

Not playable at all.

I've been having the same problem with client crashes (on 3 different Windows 10 machines) for several weeks and finally solved it today.  After trying all the things suggested by WoT support (update graphics card drivers, etc., etc.), I uninstalled my AVG Antivirus program (AVG Protection Pro).  Since then, the client has run flawlessly in 13 straight battles today.  There must be some kind of incompatibility between AVG Antivirus and one of the recent client updates.  If anyone else is running AVG, try this and let us know if it helps.

I am having precisely the same issue where the game would lock up and I would be forced to log out and back in to windows before re-opening WOT.

 

But since using windowed borderless screen, it appears to be working ok as far as crashing but I now notice the frequent "client not responding" message on top and then it goes away and loads the selected tank.

 

Very slow screen responses.

 

Also battle loading bar seems to take forever.

Freshly installed game HD in the new directory. NO MODS!

Not even 10 games and it crashes  to a black screen with words “WoT Client” at the upper right corner.

At this point game can not be closed, minimized, task manager won’t work.

The only way to restart the game is to reboot computer.

My friends and I will stop playing WOT until you address this issue.

It already cost me about 200 WN8 points and it is bad for my PC.

I sent two tickets to "Support". They have nothing to offer whatsoever.

Latest Nvidia video driver. All motherboard drivers up to date.
