World of Tanks is an online multiplayer competitive strategy game where players control mechanized tanks in a team-based armored-warfare battle arena. Light, Medium, and Heavy Tanks, as well as Tank Destroyers and SPGs (Self-Propelled Guns), are all at the disposal of the players as they navigate the conflict zone, shooting at enemy vehicles.
World of Tanks is available for Microsoft Windows, the Xbox 360, and the Xbox One platforms. A software solution developed by CodeWeavers and supported by Wargaming is available to those who want to join the army of World of Tanks players on Mac OS X.
The mid-20th century armored vehicles of this mechanized-combat game are placed in an action-packed environment that keeps players on their toes. The tanks are recreated historically correctly, and the battles are typically kept within 30 minutes. However, learning the more complicated commands requires a great deal of practice. As a team, players can use various tactics, such as ambushes, clever flank attacks, and head-on clashes, to deliver a fatal blow to their opponents.
To put it simply, the game delivers an immersion into the history of tanks and their places of origin. The United States, Japan, Russia, China, Germany, and the United Kingdom all have armored vehicles in World of Tanks. As with all Wargaming titles, this is a fun game for military fans of all ages. Parents should be aware of the unmoderated language that may be used during games when teaching their children how to play.
Aside from its entertainment value, playing World of Tanks is a wonderful experience because of its amazing visuals, acceptable gameplay sessions, and intriguing gameplay that can be enjoyed by a solo player or with family and friends for long periods of time. World of Tanks can help families talk about working together and communicating effectively in order to synchronize actions and achieve a common goal.
The battle arena game is historically-based and develops skills like applying information, making decisions, logical conclusions, prediction, and problem-solving, as well as reasoning skills. Combining knowledge and creating unique solutions are the hallmarks of creativity that players can put into use in this game.
The game embraces a fee-based pricing model and can be downloaded and played for free. For a cost of $8 to $46 a month, however, players can gain 50% more experience and gold in the game. Optional disc purchases are available (the price varies) for consoles.
Presently, the community of World of Tanks players consists of more than 160 million people. The players can choose from multiple game modes. If you are a fresher, you can choose to play solo or with a group, compete for dominance and move up the leaderboards, or form a clan and prepare for war on the Global Map.
Tank battles are brought to life with high-quality visuals and sound effects. Players can learn where the greatest places are to place their tanks by looking at maps and developing a winning 15v15 battle strategy by considering the roles of the opposing vehicles.
Once you join the game, over 600 mid-20th century tanks are at your command in World of Tanks. When you dive into the realistic battlefield, you can take on players all around the world with some of the most powerful military machines of the era. There is a choice of a wide range of vehicles at your command: from iconic war machines like Shermans, T-34s, and Churchills to ones that never made it to the manufacturing line. Armory combat can be learned and honed across a wide variety of settings in World of Tanks that bring historic locales from around the world to life. Over 160 million people around the world are already dedicated to the game. Bring It On!

Its the exact same as for the PC, just open up the /Documents/WoT/res_mods folder and drop the mod in. If your using quickybaby's modpack for example then the modpack will contain 3 folders: 9.13, config, and mods. Place the config and mods folders inside res_mod and place the contents of the 9.13 folder in the res_mods/9.13 folder, and bam, mod is installed.
Edit: you can't install mods that come as an exe file, well you can, but its complicated and you need other software to do it, its best to just find ones that come pre-built like QuickyBabys mod pack (as an example) - which has xvm by the way, if you want a guaranteed way of using xvm, use his pack. I can confirm that it works on the mac.
To find where to put the mods open a finder window, click the \"go\" menu tab and select \"to folder\" and put in \"/Library/Application Support\" and click ok and that should take you to the right spot, then look for the world of tanks folder, bottles, c_drive, games, world of tanks, mods... and you're there!
Well it turns out the folders I talked about shortcut to that documents/world of tanks folder so my directions are just the long way to get there lol... oh well. XVM stats do work but not server ping but that's a minor loss.
Yeah, I've been hopping in and out of the game, testing different combinations. Each time, I move to where I want to be on the map (because I am also playing to win the game as well), enter Missile Command mode, and then hit G - nothing every time. With Locastan you had to have the the files in just the right spot and a copy of a txt and a xml placed in a different spot. But it sounds like Battle Assistant should be just plug and play.
Now I checked to see if I had G assigned for anything else and I don't. But I do have my satellite view assigned to E, would that make a differenceThe only other thing I can think of is if the mod won't work on the Mac wrapper in SD but only for HD. I run the SD version.It sounds like it's probably something simple that I have or haven't done as it works fine for most.
So I decided to try emailing CodeWeavers to see if they can help with the icmp being blocked on WoT Mac Wrapper to get XVM's Server Ping to work and it looks like we are on our own or it's maybe impossible:
dstud208, you're quite the studly stud... any chance you can figure out how to get icmp working on the WoT Mac Wrapper for XVM Server ping support I highly doubt the makers of XVM would fix this as they dropped support for their Linux version of XVM quite a while ago ever since they managed to get stats working internally on the mod instead of an external program like before...
Yeah but the issue isn't OSX blocking ICMP requests but the WoT Mac Wrapper. I've tried with OSX Firewall off, on, with and without stealth mode... no difference. I've also tried figuring out if there's a way to get ICMP requests to work with Wine/CrossOver but so far I haven't found it... I'll see if tinkering more with it... hmm, one thing I didn't try doing is dropping the icmp.dll and the icmp.dll.so I found in certain GoG wine games into either the World of Tanks bottle directory or other spots it might sit in... hmm... 153554b96e
