World of Tanks Breaks Simultaneously User Record

Updated Thu, Dec 08, 2011 by Martuk

World of Tanks has shattered the Guinness World Record for most players online simultaneously, which the previous record ironically was also held by World of Tanks. According to the latest press release, more than 250,000 players logged on to play at once on the game’s Russian server in November.

World of Tanks will soon be adding update 7.0, which will add new multicluster technology, which will allow even more players to be online at once.  So we could see World of Tanks making another run at its own record sometime in the future.

You can sign up to play free on the World of Tanks website.


World of Tanks Sets New Record

London, UK, Paris, FR and San Francisco, CA (8th December, 2011) — Wargaming.net, the award-winning videogame publisher and developer, is proud to announce that its MMO action game World of Tanks has set a new record.

The MMO action game dedicated to armored warfare has demolished its own Guinness World Record for Most Players Online Simultaneously on One MMO Server, when the number of concurrent accounts logged on to the game's Russian server totalled an impressive figure of 250,000 players this November.

Wargaming.net team is about to introduce the Update 7.0 and multicluster technology. The latter will significantly increase the overall possible number of active server players by allowing gamers to choose the game cluster with optimal in-game comfort and providing them with a better connection and performance.

"We are more than happy to watch our World of Tanks win over hearts and minds of gamers all around the world," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net. "The multicluster technology will enable us to move steadily towards new milestones and records."

World of Tanks is the first and only team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.

But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In World of Tanks, it's all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own steel empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
