So,the problem goes back at least 4 months when i approximately started playing wot.I was already playing wows and i had 0 problems.When i downloaded wot for the first time i experienced the following problem:the game was saying that it was already playing but i couldnt see it anywhere and i had to wait around 15 mins for it to appear.That problem has nearly gone away but i am getting tortured by a new one that nearly replaced the old one.I have extremely low download speeds for both wot and wows.I mean a get around 15-20 kbps per 2-3 mins while in the meantime it gets to 0 which is seriously mental if u keep in mind that i have a 30 mbps connection.I have zero problems downloading/updating other games/apps.I dont know what to do,i have deleted and downloaded it again around 3 times,i checked my antivirus which is the paid Bitdefender version and its excluded,i tried to run it as an administrator but nada.I am lost and fustrated.Please help me!!

Check your windows firewall and router etc too. And try to turn off uploading as seen on your 2nd image to see how it runs then. And, how is your ISP vs torrents? As that has been proven as a cause a few times. As GC uses torrent protocols for updates, and some ISP do limit speed on torrents regardless.

 

Now something else you can try to see if it's on WG end etc. Is the WG checker. https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wot/article/10248/

Download it, follow the steps shown in the link and make sure network tests is selected out of the 3 tests he can do. As he checks the traffic towards not only the game server, but the different download servers. And you can check the connection reports by using the left menu once he is down and you show the report, and go all the way down to Network and check server tab and ping logs for WGC. If it's just that connection, he will show it.

Well, just if your ISP, or internet service provider that gives you that speed has torrents blocked. As you can check on their site. As due to the sometimes illegal nature of torrents as a source for downloads. Some as then set the speed on those to low.

Funny, neither update server is from Russki for me. Are you perhaps playing on RU server?

 

And everybody knows vodka is nothing If not from Finland.

Turn off "uploading" for a start.

You realize this has nothing to do with his issues? If he has a 22 Mbit connection tested he ought to be downloading at 2.75 MB/sec on average, he's getting a few kilobites per minute. He doesn't have very fast Internet by today's standards but he doesn't need an upgrade.

I dunno. I and my family all got serious problems last evening, all on same ISP... Except that was just 4g for phones. Same ISP, wifi dongle, all good. Inexplicable.

Could be ISPs experimenting with blocking torrent traffic on 4G mobile networks.

 

You could try changing the incoming connection port in WoT launcher / Game Central .

So after approx.2 days i managed to download wot,unfortunately i made a ticket to wg which they responded asking me to do some things.I did said things with no results but one of those things was to delete everything on res_mods and mods file and create a new folder with the name of the latest patch,which i did but now that i try to start my game i get the following error"game resourse path doesnt not exist-->res_mods.I am seriously at a loss and i dont know what to do...I never used mods.

 

 Mind you the problem is not solved,i still try to download wows.
