How to easily display FPS in World Of Tanks

Learn everything you need to know about the FPS (and Ping) counter in World Of Tanks. In this article we will answer how to see FPS within World of Tanks and how to remove the FPS and Ping counter in WOT.

World of Tanks is a game that doesn’t require an amazing computer to run smoothly. In fact, this is one of the main reasons for its success, aside from the amazing gameplay. Everyone can play the game and enjoy it regardless of what kind of equipment they have. 

However, you might still encounter issues from time to time and, in particular, drops in FPS. The best way to tackle this issue is by checking the framerate per second metric and reducing your graphic settings.

In this post, we will tell you how to show FPS in World of Tanks. We will also give you a few suggestions as to how to improve it.  

What is the best FPS for World of Tanks? 

FPR or framerate per second should be as high as possible. The metric indicates the frequency at which images change on your screen. So, whenever you move a tank, high FPS ensures that the transition to a new “image” is smooth. 

It is always better to have high FPS, unlike ping that should be minimized. FPS of 120 is a dream, but most people will do just fine with 60. Unfortunately, if you fall below 60 framerate per second, you can expect issues. 

The best way to tackle FPS problems is by lowering your graphic settings. But also, your computer will play a major role. Before you start changing the settings, it is much better to check the framerate. Here are some ways you can do this.

How to see FPS within World of Tanks

World of Tanks is one of the rare games that display both ping and FPS. You can find them in the top left corner of the screen. This is a small feature that can be amazing for online gaming, and we’re surprised that more titles don’t have it. 

Both of these metrics are measured in real-time, and they provide a good assessment as to how your computer and internet are working.

While the feature is very nice, there isn’t a shortcut that would remove it. Instead, you have to do a few things out of the game to block the bar:

  1. Find a file called preferences.xml. The file should be in your World of Tanks installation folder
  2. We suggest that you make a backup before you start tinkering
  3. Open it with a notepad
  4. You can turn FPS and ping by typing false (for off) or true (for on) <showFPS> false </showFPS>
  5. Save the settings and close the file
