The key point here is the fact that WoT is a based on realistic tanks, arcade game, and not a mil-sim.

Unfortunately WoT has stopped using realistic armor/speed/engine power values, thus ruining the argument that WoT has anything to do with history. In the past, I learned a lot about the speed of the T95, how thick the armor was on the Maus, etc. Currently those values have been made up for 'balance reasons'. That's between quotes, because in most cases it was not needed at all if gold ammo wouldn't be around in the game.

OH really? E75, e50,50m, e25, tier 8 and 9 wk, E3,4,5 and may more lsd tanks says hello to you. And i almost forgot about polish tanks, can you remind me, how many of them are real? Where i can see them? All of thos tp, especially tier 9 and 10. Your realistic base is gone long time ago, now it is drinking own piss and smoking lsd affected made tanks.

This story was kinda meh...

 

Most of them so far were very much in-depth explanations but this seems to have been somewhat rushed.

If they are German, "Realistic" reserved for German tanks.

(but with WORSE ARMOR than in real life / history)

This part reserved for British Tanks, like Centurion1 with 256mm Turret (Tier8 medium tank Turret thick as the one on the MAUS)

Do you even read what your marketing department writes ?  Is the word "arcade"used anywhere ? "the ultimate strategic shooter" "each model has been recreated with surgical precision".? 
What rewards do you receive for jumping at customer's throats when they appear to be saying something mildly critical (and factual) about the game ?

True that...They just don't understand that,they are just making big trash outta the game..I really liked it back when i started (8.3-8.4),then HD tanks started coming and secret nerfs when a tank was made in HD,then they started making vapor tanks (fake tanks),then the "Double Press 2 to Win" came in,and its all over.The game is nearly dead,which is really sad.It is still not late to fix it,there are still players.

Game isnt nearly dead, there are still tankfests, you get a game in a second, Fl is very popular. "X game is dead only because I don't like it anymore" is a very fallacious phrase.

Ok the tanks are not actual blueprint copies but the tanks have to be altered or else 1 or 2 tanks would wipe out an entire team. As for being realistic would you like it if the tanks broke down before they even started, or took 5mins to load a shell, or visibility was 35 degrees like some ww2 tanks. This is a game which has to bend things to work so stop whinging.

Well, story of Chinese tanks can be quite interesting especially since it`s almost totally unknown. And we haven`t shared everything in the article, there was much more to that :)
