Playing World of Tanks, for sheer fun or competitively, requires gamers to amass vast knowledge about it. This legendary massively multiplayer online (MMO) game boasts hundreds of combat vehicles from the 20th century, including locomotive artillery, tanks (light, heavy and medium), and tank hunters. These armored automobiles are from different parts of the world, such as Britain, France, Japan, Poland, Germany, China, and the United States. In addition, they are all customizable, and they don't come with similar performances, roles, or strengths on the battlefield. Depending on their goals, a player decides the additional equipment their vehicle needs.
Players vs. players (PvP) gameplay is World of Tanks' primary game mode. Therefore, each player picks a single combat vehicle to use. Once they land on a random battlefield, they are in charge of its movement and firing. They can also leverage the voice or typed chat feature to communicate with other gamers, allied or otherwise, at their convenience.

- Random battles
- Team battles
- Tank-company battles
- Special battles
