Since the game is WW2 themed why are there Polish, Czech, Swedish and Italian tanks in the game if Poland, Czech Republic, and Italy didn't have their own tanks, they were allied with the Germans and used their tanks and France also, Sweden made tanks for Germans and Yugoslavia and China also didn't had their own tanks they had Russian tanks, Wargaming should really fix those mistakes

1. Do you really want WG to remove all those tanks?

2. No idea about the detailed history but where exactly does WG state that the game is or is meant to be historically accurate?

3. If that is the only historically inaccurate thing you noticed, you should really think again. Wait. *edited*

Show me where it says WOT is a WWII only focused game? It never was, never said it was, never will be.

Why do you think most of their tanks are post war.. and based on Russian design. Because it's not a WWII only game. You should read up on anyhing before you post next time. I mean anything.

what are you smoking man

 

WoT isnt ww2 themed, it is just tank themed. just that tanks started coming up just before and during ww2, this could give the false impression it is ww2 themed

did you even read into history? certain countries you named never been allies during ww2

 

edit; czechoslovakia had their own tanks, this being the LT vz. 38 or named ingame pz38t(german naming), this became the hetzer chassis aswell. (might have skipped other cz tank)

       italy had some tanks aswell, altough very few of them so far i remember

       poland had couple tanks aswell

       france had a bunch tanks

       no clue about china

It has to be troll attempt right? :D

 

They had their own tanks to an extent and weren't allied with Germany. Poland actually had about 700 tankettes and 200 tanks at the start of ww2. 

 

Also many tech trees are using borrowed reskinned tanks from other nations, it's nothing new and has nothing to do with those newest tech trees we got.

 

Also complaining about historical accuracy in arcade game like World of Tanks, rotfl'.

It is WW2 themed because it has WW2 tanks, it doesn't have modern tanks

1) Yes but they were occupied later by Germans so those tanks were nothing special
2) Yes for example Yugoslavia and China had Russian tanks
3) It's a WW2 themed game and it has WW2 tanks so it should be WW2 accurate

How historically accurate is a battle with German Russian American and British tanks all part of one unit fighting a similar mix.

Did that not give you a clue.

there are a couple tanks you could consider modern, quite alot of tanks are cold war era

so with your logic you can say wot is cold war themed

You must know this game includes historical tanks, and prototype tanks as well, many of them existed only in blueprints. By the way do you know how WWII started ?

Yes there were blueprints but they weren't made so they weren't in the WW2, it started with the invasion of Poland

It's not a WWII based game.  The game has tanks from the end of WWII up to the 1970's.

If Germany invaded Poland then how did you come to conclusion they were allied with Germans ? Or part of Germany (unless you consider occupied country part of Germany and ignore the resistance)
