For the last few days I seem to have lost my passion for the WoT. This morning, I played a few games but ended up just doing suicide runs on purpose.

After playing just over 4k games,  I thought I was getting the hang of it, my stats were slowly getting better but now I'm just log into the game, stare at my tanks, maybe play a couple of games and then log out, more out of habit than wanting to play.

How can I rekindle that passion to be the best on the battlefield??

That happened to me. I got a Chaffee, T71, and ELC. They're ridiculous fun. Played right they're also game changers/winners. You can't go wrong with the lights. For some reason it takes the pressure off yourself rolling out in one.
Scout to start and feel like a battlefield commander ordering in strikes and then go hunt the scum bags. As long as you don't just suicide at the start and actually try to help your team you won't get any grief off them and won't give yourself any either.
I've got myself quite a few light tanks now and whenever I'm feeling lost I always just pick one.

Try out War Thunder.
I used to play WoT for two years, and every now and then I would get so bored/annoyed with the game being so stale and never developing new game-modes, I would google 'WoT Alternative' in the hopes
of finding alternative Tank-related MMO's.
Nada. Not a thing. Probably the reason why Wargaming doesn't care about making WoT any more attractive.
Then I read that War Thunder would soon implement tank warfare, and installed it to check it out. I never played air combat stuff before, but the Arcade mode + Mouse Aim makes it pretty easy for beginners to get the hang of things.
That was half a year ago. Now I frequently play HB (Historical Battles), and am preparing my entry into FRB (Full Real Battles) with a Joystick and Headtracking etc - also waiting for Oculus Rift 1080p (or higher).
The good thing is - I will get a new tank game soon, and I learned to love air combat, too.
Hope this helps  :tongue:

Like everyone else said: Take a break from WoT.

Things you can do during your break:
- Try another hobby... like bird watching or bonsai tree growing
- Go on a cheap holiday.. I've heard Syria and Egypt are cheap now
- Play offline games with your family... like monopoly (and don't forget to end it all in one big fight)

Then I'm sure after taking a week off you're completely revitalized for another year of WoT.

You do something for long time...
... then you do something else.

Nothing is permanent. Video games especially.

I fully agree with the suggestions of taking a break, I've played World of Tanks on and off for the past two years and I have less battles than yourself.

The problem I find is I decide I will aim to acquire a tank which at highest would be tier 7 (I'm not fond of games that are higher tier than 8) and then I would get to that tank with ease. even now I sit with a garage of 29 vehciles where I just look at them and give an indecisive tut of what one to choose. It could just well be you are playing with tanks that just don't complement your play style which you might have to branch out to try other tanks.
