SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,649MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Wargaming.net has announced that World of Tanks player registrations have crossed the 40 million mark and that over 500,000 concurrent users were recently logged into the Russian WoT server. Wargaming.net expects the numbers to continue to grow with the recent release of the v8.0 update.

Wargaming announced today that the company's headlining project World of Tanks has reached an unprecedented 40 million registered users worldwide. This number is twice as big as the game's previous milestone set in early 2012.

    40,000,000 Registered Users? I honestly find that hard to believe. The only time I've heard of this game was through MMORPG.com - which doesn't even have 2,000,000 members.

    I can believe it considering how high the concurrent users were most of the time when I played. Back then I was still playing EVE and we had half the corp on a vacation searching looking for some tank PVP for a change of pace. This game is much more popular than you are aware of, I'd say.

    I believe it. My friend who doesn't play video games is playing this game. I dropped by his place and he said he's playing WOT. If he's playing it, then I believe it.

    Silly f2p numbers, probably less than a million actually play and probably a third of those are really active.  Nothing like meaningless numbers.

    there are several servers for it as well. there is a dedicated RU server cluster besides the common NA cluster so im not overly suprised if there are 40mill users. CB4 had a crap ton of logged in players going by the total player/battles in the top left corner of the garage window.  unlike most games of this type i never had issues getting a battle going.  longest wait i had was about 10minutes do to server issues.  only time i have seen a battle start faster was in CS1.6 lol

    so yes its very possible for wot to have 40mill. some people do run 2 accounts i think though :/

        I havent played in awhile but last time I did there were only about 10k active players on...Alot of games like to brag about how many people register for he game, but almost every time the actual number playing the game isnt even close to that.....Heck I know that I have signed up on a few sites and never even played the game at all.

    They run commercials on TV and advertise on a number of websites...

    It is big enough for a game out of nowhere generate enough money to make a gigantic stand during e3 and develop 2 other games in the series(battleships and airplanes). It's one of those game which have big following but it is less known in the west. just like Dofus which had like hudreds of thousands od paying subscribers in europe (mainly france) when all big western mmos had like half of it. nd yet almost no one ever mentioned that game on this site.

    World of Deep pockets is what it really should be called. Run by the most shameless P2W company on the net.  No deep pockets, no stay for very long as you get fed up being killed by the those who do.
  • hardiconhardicon jackson, MSPosts: 358Member

    the game is hugely popular in russia and europe.   so i can believe it, the game does pull in over 10 million dollars a month, i would think that would make it very successful. 

     

    btw you dont need deep pockets.  I pay 15 bucks a month, just like I do for any other mmo and I play it just fine and compete with the others just fine.  you dont really even need money, money wont change the performance of your tanks one bit, money is just to make the grind faster.  imo its one of the best free to play games out there as far as what you can spend money on, mainly because money dont matter unless you want to grind faster.

    thats not the case at all..

    yes they have to make money but stuff you can buy hardly makes a difference.. the only thing that i can think of that does is the better ammo.. but it really dont make that much difference.

    I played this for months without spending a penny and i was top of the kill list quite a bit... but remember they are still out to make cash just like any other company.

     

    Really looking forward to world of battleships thats for sure :)

    Pure nonsense, btw I have a bridge in brooklyn for sale if you are interested.

    which part is bs ozmodan.  

     

    the game has set a world record for most concurrent users on a single server for over 100k people online on a single server.  the game is popular, you can put your head in the sand or not, but it is making alot of money.  plus its a good game also, alot of fun.

    Unless you have no life you cannot reach max teir without buying a premium tank which can be up to 40 dollars and maintaining a 15 dollar a month subscription.  I played with a premium account for 2 months multiple hours every day and a better than average kdr and still only got to tier 7 and I mean tier7 with no upgrades.  This game is an average game it only maintains this kind of base because if you have no interested in leveling your tank you can play an hour a day and be ok with it.  I don't mind that model but it is P2W.

    I'ld be very surprised if they ever did monthly or yearly numbers like LoL which is still the f2p standard.  I think that they have millions of duplicate accounts and one time log-ins then quit.

  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    I have played on a mates account and he had a few premium tanks.. cant remember what ones but they where not max teir ones.. i found the standard tanks to be a lot better...

     

    Either way as you said its good for jumping onto now and then to have a blast its not the kind of game i could put hours and hours into every day.. but i never felt that I had to spend money to be able to compete in games..

     

    but a game that can keep pulling people back even tho its for a few hours every day or so is a good one.
