Voting is only open until October 22nd.  Don't miss out on your chance to vote!


The Golden Joystick Awards is one of the oldest and biggest gaming award ceremonies in the world. Winners are chosen solely by player votes.  This means that all the winners in every category are chosen by real gamers.  This year, the awards are celebrating their thirtieth birthday and so the event promises to be bigger and better than ever.  There are no less than sixteen categories in the show this year, and World of Tanks has been selected to compete in one of them: the ‘Best MMO of the Year’.

See what the organisers of the Golden Joystick have been saying about us on their Facebook page.
