I need to get back to where I was before my pc crashed, saving all my game info built up over the last two years. I tried downloading WOT again but it seems to want me to set up a completely new profile and username. I don't want to start from scratch all over again!. 

What do I need to do, guys?

Many thanks.

Have you tried logging into the website with your current user name (email addr) and password? Think it should then allow you to download game without asking you to set up new a/c.

Just download the game installer from the link Radu Korne posted.

Run it let it install and update then just enter the user name and password you used before.

 

Everything is stored their end your login details are all that's needed to get your game back.

PLEASE don't re-install and do the rest of the player base a favour in the process.

 

Nearly 7k battles in a Matilda and despite playing one of the best tanks in the tier, you still struggle to do anything useful most of the time, just stop FFS.

Totally rude and arrogant comment in my opinion. Furthermore, Op is just as likely to be on the enemy team as on yours, so I really don't see your problem!

@Op - Don't take any notice of forum trolls like this - you have as much right to play and enjoy the game as any of us! Good luck! :)

Arrogant - Maybe, Rude - let me tell you what's rude, playing like garbage for 10k games thereby reducing the win chance for 140k other players in the process, and making little to no improvement in ability during that whole process.

 

Also, I'm not a troll, I just don't like having people who are unable or unwilling to learn on my team constantly, whilst also being expected to do their job for them at the same time...

If you dont like having players that are not as good as you or not showing any sign of improvement *edited* are you doing playing an ONLINE TEAM GAME.

 

I agree with the other guy your Arrogance is appalling.

Life is a multi-player game with almost 5 billion players.

Indy, you spoil the game for 4,999,999,999 others, and you don't seem to be able or willing to improve.

We are tired of having to carry you.

Please uninstall yourself.

So, it's quite plain that you are a highly zealous proponent of a skill-based matchmaker. That's right, isn't it.

Are you looking at different stats to me? I see the OP has a 51% winrate and has aced the tank, plus has a 1.01 destruction rate. Whatever else you might think, it's clear he's not a liability to any team. Might not be the unicum standard you expect (and I'm not sure why your expectations should carry any weight with anyone other than you), but not useless either. I suggest you wind your neck in.

While at the same time increasing the win-chance for 150k players. That’s a good thing surely?

I just love how so many people are rushing to defend bad play, it's another reason the game is in the state it is - too much pandering to the bottom end of the food chain...

Go and play the competitive modes in WoT if it bothers you that much that a player performs basically average against their peers. How on earth can you play 27k games and not realise what random mode actually is?

50-51% WR is not bad play, and it's not the bottom of the food chain either. Can you even read? Do you understand anything about statistics? Do you even think? If you prefer to eliminate every player below 55% (because they don't meet your lofty standards), the game would be left with a handful of unicums, WG would see no further profit in the game and pull out from it (because all those servers and developers cost a lot of money), and then jocks like you would be left with nothing but War Thunder, which you'd soon complain about because it's full of noobs (having all left WOT). On the bright side, you'd still have a bathroom mirror to take selfies in, so your snapchat account will flourish...

 

...unless of course you're just an aging, overweight troll, typing in your undies. In which case, life is being very cruel to you. Rather like you are to the OP, in fact. Karma, eh?

Indeed. Also simple statistic requirements dictate that the majority of all players will have a win rate below 50%, so anyone making it beyond that threshold does at least make something right.

 

Granted, the opening poster might not yet use the Matilda to her fullest potential but at least he doesn't drag down the team either.
