BMunchausenBMunchausen Staff WriterBurlingame, CAPosts: 400MMORPG.COM Staff

Wargaming, makers of World of Tanks and World of Warplanes this week announced it now has more than 100 million registered players across all games and platforms.

“World of Tanks created a new niche in the MMO market,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "We started on PC, but with other platforms in mind. By the launch of World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition and World of Tanks Blitz we stepped into two new markets, taking our signature gameplay to console and mobile, and it’s the direction we will pursue in future.”

Since launch, World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition has generated 3.8 million players globally, while World of Tanks Blitz enjoyed 5 million installs its first month.

    It's impressive so many have tried it but it's a stat that means about as much as how many showers someone has had in their life when they stink today.

    I played WoT for a while.  The problem with the game is that the lower tiers were more fun than the higher ones with the net result that I never spent any money on it as I never ended up using the higher tiered tanks.

    WOT isn't bad, I just can't stand how slow paced it is. That's my main issue.

    Yet another sign of the coming apocalypse.

    "Winning" at EVE Online since May, 2007! 

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    Yet another sign of a future news release saying their security had been compromised and the user databases have been stolen.

    Can your prove anything your saying. Show me the bots that they've had to put in. Show me the thousands of players leaving for WT.

     

    WT ground forces is pretty disappointing at the moment, most WT players completely ignore that part of the game (and so do the devs, seemingly), making it a piss poor substitute for WoT. I still play both games, just got done playing WTGF actually, and it's much harder to find a game than it is on WoT. It's still damn near instant to find a game, in any tier, in WoT. Yet, it usually takes 30 seconds to a minute to find a battle in WT, often times taking more. That hardly sounds like thousands leaving one game for the other. Sure, there's a lot of people playing WT, but they're all in the sky.

     

    You may no longer like WoT, if you ever did, but don't go around spewing bullshit about it.

    As others have eluded to... Registered users on a F2P game is essentially a meaningless number... I mean, MMORPG.com has 2.8 million registered users and they haven't even announced that they might in the future create an MMO - but look at all those people who want to play their game!!!

     

    I got nothing against Wargaming, but these kind of announcements are pretty "meh" worthy.

  • TrashcantoyTrashcantoy DragonstonePosts: 827Member

    These numbers don't mean much...

     

    That said I am thoroughly enjoying WoT at the moment.. just finished a mission that got me a premium tier 3 tank. Despite a lot of battles my max tier is "only" 6 but still very much enjoying every minute about it. The EU servers have almost 400k users online at the same time at best, and that is a way more impressive number than X accounts registered. Russian server is the most popular with about one million users online at the same time

     
     

    MMOs currently playing: -
    About to play: Lord of the Rings Online
    Played: Anarchy Online (alltime favorite) and lots of f2p titles (honorable mentions: 9Dragons, Martial Heroes, Dekaron, Atlantica Online)
