World of Tanks gets free mobile Assistant app

Wargaming.net has launched a new app to help players stay connected with its popular RTS, World of Tanks. The WoT Assistant, free on iTunes with an Android version to follow shortly, allows on-the-go access to player stats, global rankings, Wargaming.net news and social functions, as well as tracking personal stats such as in-game progress and balance.

Honestly, not to bang the old “wow, technology” drum, but can you imagine how the real wars of the mid-20th Century would have played if this sort of thing had been around? Permanent access to player progress and tank condition, the instant ability to compare records and results with the enemy... the whole thing would've been done in an afternoon. Or possibly accelerated rapidly into Mutually Assured Destruction. Or maybe Churchill would have gotten distracted playing Angry Birds and the whole thing would've gone much as it did – look, we're not military strategists.

Anywho, you can get the WoT Assistant from the iTunes Store, which also offers a free preview of the game in the form of Wargaming.net's About WoT app.

    "with its popular RTS, World of Tanks".. I play WoT, and if that game is an RTS then i am completely unaware of what RTS games are..

    To be fair, plenty of people do sit in spawn pinging the map and telling everyone what to do. Anyways, I guess maybe some clan wars guys will care about this app, but I kinda don't. My stats aren't changing when I'm not playing the game.
