World of Tanks games are played on gaming locations named maps. Although each map is based off of a real-world locale except certain special event maps , they are not replicas of any exact location. Maps vary in size, design, terrain, location, and weather. Each map, by virtue of having different terrain and structures, will encourage the use of different tactics in order to succeed. Players will generally play on more maps as they rise through the tiers, although certain maps will be locked to lower tiers due to size constraints.

There are six main battle types, three of which are Random Battle modes, and several more in development. You can choose different battle modes by opening the pull-down menu below the red "Battle! Please note that "Special Battle" is not available until 15 minutes before specific events, such as the beginning of a Clan Battle. Random Battle is selected by default when you click the battle button at the top of the screen, the matchmaking system will put together two teams of 15 randoms players each and randomly select a map to play on. The teams will consist of tanks of various types which are typically within up to 4 vehicle tiers of each other a few dedicated scout tanks are the exception. Each tank has their role to play, regardless of type or tier. Because every team composition will be different, the key to victory lies in recognizing the team's relative strengths and weaknesses on the specific map against the specific enemy team, and using the advantages you have.

Overall Review: This is a brilliant game but commands patience and a learning curve. There is no imbalance, you are put against tanks 3 tiers higher than the one you are driving, but it is not like it is you only against the other team. You work together and the other team has tiers your level. It is great fun for the family as I have three sons that play it as well.
