Ease of access

The fact that anyone can play the game successfully has a lot to do with its popularity. You can be 5 year old or 50, the game is playable.

All other tank games are quite simple with a much reduced damage model. WoT however is highly strategic with some very complex mechanics that make it a very interesting game. The other reason it is popular is that to begin with the game was pay to win model but now it’s a freemium game and you can assess all the features and advantages that are available to a premium player without spending a penny. The great graphics and really accurate tank models also help considerably.
