World Of Tanks hits 1.1m concurrent users

"In 2013, we put a great amount of effort into growing World of Tanks"

The Russian cluster of free-to-play game World Of Tanks saw over 1,114,000 gamers playing concurrently, according to publisher Wargaming.

"In 2013, we put a great amount of effort into growing World of Tanks, enriching it with new gameplay features and content," said VP of publishing Andrei Yarantsau.

"Tankmen on the Russian servers all play at different times of the day and although their overall number has long since surpassed several million daily active users, the PCCU has been hovering around 900,000 gamers for the past few months. Finally, we've breached the one million mark. We are set to scale even greater heights with considerable improvements planned for World of Tanks in 2014".

Worldwide the game has over 75,000,000 players and was initially released in Russia in 2010. Wargaming is currently working on Xbox 360 version of the MMO, with release expected later this year.

1. This is not an MMO. A MMO has more than 16 players at once on a map. This is Call of Duty with tanks.

2. I like it that this time around Games Industry/Wargaming didn't state that all the players are on the same server at once like last time. +1 for that.

It seems Gaijin's Warthunder Ground Forces is doing little to dent this juggernaut.

WoT has 30 players on a map. Not 15. Not calling WoT a MMO would also mean Clash of Clans isn't one. But it is.

The article claims "Worldwide the game has over 75,000,000 players". Thats wrong. Its 75m registrations. Get your stuff right otherwise all f2p posts of your site are always unprofessional.

And Gaijin doesnt dent WoT as their tanks are just in beta.

I find funny how you jumped to explain what is and not is an MMO in the same sentence you put RTS and FPS as the same thing.
