I defended arty by pointing out flaws in a rude persons argument in battle, after battle they message me and say that they are going to kill me (irl) with a  knife, and then say: lyapev (21:45:57) bye and thanks for your IP see you soon :)

 

Basically I want to know if people can get your IP address through World of Tanks, I am not worried about the actual threat, because they will be about 7 years old.

still those threats are worth a support ticket.

those are dealt with quite strict.

 

no, they can't get your IP-Address from within wot unless you install modifications that rely on external sources.

They can get your IP address in WoT, but only if you tell them what it is.

 

That aside, even with an IP address they still wouldn't be able to locate you accurately enough to find you. Just typical 'tard-rage from a moron with an IQ lower than his age.

Gain access to one of the major internet nodes, find mac address, cross reference it with netbios name, and bingo, there you go. You're now traceable over the internet and can be located if someone follows you over time :P

 

But OP, no, one cannot get your IP from in-game sources...

1. No.

 

2. It wouldn't matter if they could.

 

They are making idle threats which only scare you because you have a lack of knowledge.  Sending death threats over the internet is an offence in most countries though so tell them you have reported it to your local police, who will be able to get their IP address and tie it to an actual physical location (if they can be bothered).
