2,000,000 Confirmed Registrations
London, UK and San Francisco, Ca. (24th May, 2011)Â Â Wargaming.net isÂ proud toÂ announce that the number ofÂ registrations onÂ the Russian server ofÂ their highly acclaimed World ofÂ Tanks MMO has topped 2,000,000.

ÂWith the tremendous number weÂve reached inÂ Russia asÂ well asÂ the dynamics ofÂ community growth inÂ Europe and North America, weÂ are looking forward toÂ the many more milestones toÂ come.Â
