1.x version that was first released on March 21st 2018 for the EU servers.
What does not
Just a little thing:
When you start World of Tanks for the first time, you first see an intro video. This video hangs after a short time. Thus, the game hangs too.
To get around this, you have to set the "Windows 7" setting in the "winecfg" for the World of Tanks Launcher. After that it will work.
What was not tested
Surprisingly, World of Tanks works much better than on Windows 7.
Tested on Linux Mint 19.0 Tara!

This game performs best with DXVK, which is a Vulkan-based Direct3D implementation to replace the default bundled with Wine.
Vulkan 1.1 support is required for the current version of DXVK. Older graphics drivers (e.g. nvidia-390) that only support Vulkan 1.0 will need to use DXVK 1.5.1 or earlier.
Many current operating systems already contain the necessary packages to run DXVK: no additional installations are required other than the most up-to-date drivers for your graphics card (tested with a fresh installation of Ubuntu 20.04).
