** There are no actively participating infantry, aircraft, anti-tank guns or other vehicles (halftracks, armored cars, and so on) in the game. The sole exception is the Lanchester Armoured Car, which was implemented and made playable specifically for a "100 Years of the Tank" commemorative special event in September of 2016.

* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt:
** Artillery sometimes runs into this when they miss their intended target, and hit the elusive little bugger that was hanging out near the target that wouldn't stand still long enough for the arty to fully aim in.
** Other vehicles can join in the fun as well, since now shots that ricochet off of tanks can keep going in the new direction and still punch through other tanks that are close by. This is especially helpful when dealing with side-scraping tanks. While you might not be able to get through him, you will most certainly get through his reloading auto-loader buddy that's in cover...
* ExperiencePoints: They're used to research modules and to unlock the next tank. Crew members also have a separate experience stat, which increases their percentage of competence. Both are obtained through fighting battles.
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: It's surprisingly common to see light tanks who are harassing [=SPGs=] and [=TDs=] getting rammed, all the more appropriate since light tanks tend to destroy at least one of these assets before another tank comes to the rescue.

* ExperiencePenalty: Platoons are penalized if there is more than one tier difference between the tanks in the platoon to a maximum of 50% for Tier I tanks platooned up with Tier X tanks. This is to discourage "fail platoons".

** Of Germany's six available heavies, three are Tigers. They also have three [=VK 30.01=] medium tanks, Pz.Kpfw 38 light tanks and [=JagdPanther=] [=TDs=]. Then two of their medium tanks and one of their light tanks are Panthers while two of their medium tanks and one of their light tanks are also Leopards. There is also the E-50 and the E-50 Ausf. M.

** Though it is played straight with the late-tier Swedish tank destroyers, which despite lacking turrets, were actually main battle tanks.

** The regular "arcade" targeting reticule is notoriously inaccurate at point-blank range, which can lead to missing shots when ''your gun is literally touching the enemy tank''. It's even possible to shoot ''over'' the top of a tank that's ''taller'' than yours!

** The Asian [[note]]Previously known as the SEA server; serves the South East Asian region, as well as Australia and New Zealand[[/note]] server doesn't really have its own meta - It is sparsely populated and primarily features locals who either don't understand much of the game or transferred back from other servers (a couple of one-time events after the server was established) for the reduced ping, and international players who make a separate account for relatively easy battles.

** The Asian [[note]]Previously known as the SEA server; serves the South East Asian region, as well as Australia and New Zealand[[/note]] server doesn't really have its own meta - It is sparsely decently populated most of the time and primarily features locals who either don't understand much of the game or transferred back from other servers (a couple of one-time events after the server was established) for the reduced ping, and international players who make a separate account for relatively easy battles. Although the battles tend to either go one of two ways, a two pronged flanking manoeuvre depending on luck or a chaotic free for all with all tanks used in some fashion.
