Have you contacted the support for WOT? You said that other games work good so I would see what their support team says about it.
same issue as op will try 16.11.5 because at this point in time hammer vs rx480 is getting near lol
i know how you feel... Frustration is daaamnn high, got new pc cause i fall in love with HD wot when i saw it on friend's PC, and now i can run ultra high on 120fps game keep crashing..... Will also try 16.11.5 drivers, hope it will work
list of drivers I tried
17.1.1 drivers fall over, wot crash very random
16.12.2 drivers fall over, wot crash very random
16.12.1 drivers fall over, wot crash very random
16.11.5 drivers fall over, wot crash very random
16.11.4 drivers fall over, wot crash very random

DDU to uninstall and no not playing with any setting in wattman.
Comp: WIN 10 64bit
asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3
intel i7 2600k @ 4.2
XFX GTR black RX 480
duel monitors, one on DP other HDMI
i have also a RX480 and also experience many random crashes in WOT and this happens with the "Relive" drivers installed, which where released first in December 2016 und updated since then. Going with pre-Relive drivers helps and the crashes are gone.
Another solution maybe could be this: i experienced no crashes anymore in WOT with relive drivers installed (now i have installed version 17.1.2), since i installed MSI Afterburner and let it control the fan of my RX480. Before doing that, WOT not only crashed randomly, but also the fan of my RX480 started to spin up to max and stayed there even after i exited the games. The last problem happened also in other games like DOOM (2016). That fan issue seems to be another bug of the relive drivers, that isnt fixed yet.
So until the relive drivers are fixed, you may want to give the MSI Afterburner a try. If so, please let us know, if the the crashes of WOT disappeared with relive drivers installed.
Before installing MSI Afterburner dont forget to reset the Wattman settings to default and then set Afterburner to control the fan of the 480 and change the fan update rate from 5000 to 2500 ms. For details have a look over there:
Hope it helps!
I have not had a issue with fan staying on max, once drivers recover they go back to there speed needed vs temps and yes I also tried MSI Afterburner
I have narrowed my crashes down to Snow/winter maps, try doing a training battle and doing a loop of Sacred Valley will cause a crash every time with out fail for me, some of my random crashes after that me be due to not restarting, I am starting to think it is like the crash bug that some people had on fisherman bay mid(never had it)
Update: had two crashs now in WOT after two days period without crash. So it seems, that return to pre-relive drivers is the only solution that works.
I have the same problem in World of Tanks with my r9 380 to sometimes in battle the game just completly frezzes and i cant even end the program i have to restart the pc entierly i have crimson 16.12.1 i didnt update the drivers because i feel like they are going from worse to even worse what is the point of therese new driver updates if they only screw up my expiriente.
oops forgot this post this, I mean I did on the world of tanks NA forums but not here
ok after some quick tests on Sacred Valley I found
With my setting in image below, Foliage quality set to low = no crash's, medium = may crash and high or max = will crash
did not test changing from high/max to a lower setting at start of battle if still crashes as some people will dislike having to run a lower setting all the time
my setting with 17.1.2 drivers. the other setting that I had off or lower are how I have always played and I should add this is the HD client
to test just start a training battle on Sacred Valley and start driving round zoomed out as far as you can why panning round quick as that will make you crash very quick
if no crash well your good to go
Seems to be fixed with 17.4.1 driver. Had no crashes in days.
