World of Tanks is a massive online game where players can combat other players by controlling an armored vehicle. There are a variety of tanks from the World War II era that a player can choose from. World of Tanks is free to play and is nearly available on all desktops, consoles, and mobile devices.
The importance of having a strong internet connection when playing World of Tanks is still crucial as it’s technically a shooter game. Having high ping will cause you to miss all of your shots and have a rough gaming experience. To minimize in-game lag and have a smooth gaming experience, you need the help of a World of Tanks proxy.
A World of Tanks proxy will allow you to connect to a stronger and faster internet connection that’s located geographically close to the World of Tanks’ servers. This gives you a high speed network connection and effectively minimizes latency and in-game lag. Datacenter proxies are the best proxies to use for this case.
Other uses for World of Tanks proxies are to give you total anonymity when playing World of Tanks and let you avoid any IP ban that may come to you. It will also help you create multiple World of Tanks accounts and unblock geo-restricted versions of the game. Residential proxies are what’s best for all of these cases.
Let’s set up a World of Tanks proxy server.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
