I'm a little curios about something:
I have occasionally seen people being able to tell from which country other players are, not guessing by their username or clan, they pinpoint from which country others are.
As far as I know, WoT doesn't associate a user account with a particular country (except the region: Russia, Europe, NA...) and there is no traffic between players (all traffic goes through the WoT server).

So how can some users tell from which country other players are?

many actual fortune-tellers play this game, they just look at your nick and they mentally connect to your brain - now they know everything including your bank account details!

Flags of the countries on the tanks of the players?
Language used in chat?

One guy insulted me in game chat, mentioning which country I am from, spot on. No flag on the tank, not one word spoken ...

Can you describe the situation in any more detail then? What nationality are you after all?

Well, to sum up, tanks were dying left and right in our team, and as I was getting owned by the enemy team, one guy says:
"Another Romanian team ..."

I suppose he got lucky, but found it very weird that he pulled that right out of the blue.

Clan is not Romanian, and pretty much no one in the clan itself knows either. As I said, I didn't spoke a word during the battle, and when I do, I do it in english anyway. Soo ...
