I am hoping for some insight.
The Call of Duty series was my vice. I logged many many hours playing COD1 thru COD4. It was a real joy. We formed a clan, built a website and a world wide friendship ensued. But it came to a sad end. MW2 came out without dedicated servers and the clan concept in COD faded away.
I had heard of World of Tanks about a year ago, right here on this website, and immediately dismissed it cuz I likened it to the tanks in COD World at War. It had no appeal. I tried Battlefield, Counter-Strike, Team Fortress and a few I won't mention. All good games but they just didn't grab me.
Couple weeks ago I was visiting CoRpEs' website, cuz that's what the rest of us do that have sites. If you are a clan member here and not a person that runs a website you should know that this site is the premier clan website on the planet. Anyway, I saw the World of Tanks logo again and decided... I'm going to try it. Why not. I figured a bunch of tanks driving around shooting each other... bleh. OMG!!! That is NOT the case. It's involved, engaging and highly addictive. I found it... I found my replacement game. Until I saw this...

WoT is not dead, just some of us prefer the tank battles of WarThunder over WoT. WarThunder brings the emersion of planes and tanks into a single battle. Also, in a single match, if you die, the game is not over, you have the opportunity to take in 2 more tanks. There are also air battles you can play without downloading a second game. Grinding through tanks is 100x faster in WarThunder then it is in WoT.
To give you an example. US tanks just got released about a month ago. At this point, I have almost all of them. In the other nations, you can have the full nation researched in about the same time it would take you to get a tier 8, maybe a tier 10 tank in WoT. So there is a big difference between the two, its more going to be if you want more of the arcade feel, or a arcade that has more realism in it. WoT is designed to be a straight up arcade game, WarThund has Arcade, Realistic, and Sim modes and is a bit more realistic.
So, its all personal preferences.
Me, personally love WarThunder Better than I like WoT, but thats just my opinion. It's just something you will need to try and decide for yourself. Also, there is a new game much like WoT which is called Armored Warfare. I will probably play it a little, but I like more of realistic game play and not something I would go to a arcade to play, so I don't see it becoming my game of choice.
If you ever want to see what the battles are like, just watch some of the highlights here:
Those highlights are some of the battles I streamed. Heck, by time you get this or see this and click on the link, you may show up while I am broadcasting. I broadcast almost every night when I am playing.
