Please consider upvoting so this post is one of the first results on google when anybody has this issue.

The problem:

  1. As far as I know ALL university networks strictly forbid peer-to-peer communication because it is impossible to check the thousands of packets that flood the network in seconds from many different locations. If you want to know the reason behind this I can explain it in detail in the comments.
  2. The War Thunder launcher is using BitTorrent protocols and peer-to-peer communication to save money on server maintenance. When you're downloading an update you're receiving files from nearby people that already downloaded the update before you. When you're not doing anything you are sending files from your computer to people downloading the update you have.
  3. The War Thunder launcher does not provide a simple way to turn this option off like many other launchers. Usually it's as simple as unchecking a "Use Peer-To-Peer" box, but Gaijin doesn't work that way I guess. (Yes I am aware you can disable these options in advanced launcher settings but that alone does not work because Gajoob)

The solution (short version):

Block inbound UDP packets from 239.192.152.143:6771

Block outbound UDP packets to 146.185.29.186:27022

Disable everything in the top half of the advanced War Thunder launcher settings.

You will have to enable these rules before installing the game. If you already had the game installed YOU HAVE TO REINSTALL THE GAME WITH THE RULES ENABLED AND NEVER TURN THEM OFF!!

The solution (long version):

1 ) Go into your firewall settings

2 ) Create a new inbound rule with the following settings:

Rule Type: Custom

Program: All programs

Protocol and Ports: UDP; specific port = 6771

Scope: Add 239.192.152.143

Action: BLOCK THE CONNECTION

Profile: Check all

Name: Whatever you want the name to be. I recommend placing a _ in front to easily find it later.

3 ) Create a new outbound rule with the following settings:

Rule Type: Custom

Program: All programs

Protocol and Ports: UDL; specific port = 27022

Scope: Add 146.185.29.186

Action: BLOCK THE CONNECTION

Profile: Check all

Name: You get the idea.

4 ) When you open the launcher click the wrench icon in the top right corner left of the close (X) button and disable everything in the top half. But I doubt it does anything because I already got banned on my network once with everything in there disabled which brings me to step 5)

5 ) You will have to enable these rules before installing the game. If you already had the game installed YOU HAVE TO REINSTALL THE GAME WITH THE RULES ENABLED AND NEVER TURN THEM OFF!!

NOTE:

I guess you can disable p2p even when you're on your home network if you don't like the idea of the War Thunder client sending files to other people while you're busy doing something else. Isn't it a bit fishy that Gaijin never really gives a disclaimer about this? The launcher also makes it stupid hard to disable p2p communication as you can surely tell from this looong post.

It's just another way Gaijin is saving money on server maintenance, but it's been really f*cking me in the ass lately because I have to jump all sorts of hoops to avoid getting banned on my university network (eduroam)
