How to reset the game settings and cache

Corrupted settings and cache can cause a lot of trouble.

World of Tanks uses a special folder to store the game settings and cache.

Should the game misbehave, do the following:

  1. Press Windows key + R.
  2. Type %appdata%\\WorldOfTanks.
  3. Press Enter.
  4. The following folder opens:
  5. Delete:
    • Preferences.xml – resets your game settings (graphics, audio, controls and so on.)
    • Custom_data – forces a client side refresh of your clan emblems.
    • The rest – resets the game cache.

Should the issue persist, check this article.
