Apparently I have corrupted WoT files and Wargaming wants me to re-install WoT. I have quite some progress on WoT and I am wondering, will I lose it if I uninstall, then re-install WoT? Thats it and I would appreciate anyone who has done this to tell me what happens.

if you by chance dont happen to run wgs database server reinstalling wouldnt change anything  you wouldnt even need to set your options again as they are kept untouched by a normal uninstall

Your progress is saved on WG's servers, not within your client. So just pay attention to not uninstall their server and you should be fine.

be reminded to also check the %appdata%\wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks folder,

make a backup copy of your "preferences.xml" as that one stores graphics settings, keyboard layout and other settings.

 That last thing happens quite often these days. :trollface:

i dont really know why you are offended 

 

you got your answer  and it just got some lil funs included

 

there would have been space for quite some differnt answers

at least i dont know a single MMO that would put the savegame in the client  allowing them to be manipulated etc

 

also MMO are around for about 20 years now and more or less popular since WoW  (released 13 years and 3 days ago)

 

so asking this question  might cause some head scratching  with thinking is he/she serious?/shouldnt this be common knowledge?
