London (24th February, 2011) - Wargaming.net is glad to announce that its free-to-play action-MMO game World of Tanks has set up a World Guinness Record™ in the category of Most Players Online Simultaneously on One MMO Server.

The record was registered on January 23rd, 2011 when the number of players on the game’s Russian server totaled 91,311.

“We are excited to see so many people playing World of Tanks and the new record is an important achievement for us,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net. “However, with the population of the game growing steadily another week or two would let us report a more impressive record as the current PCCU number surpasses 120,000 players”.

Wargaming.net wants to thank all World of Tanks fans that made this record possible.

WoT is not what can be described as a single sharded persisting game universe.

Just sayin'

1) is it really a MMO? if it is, why call of duty is not? (you also upgrade/unlock your weapons/perks there)
2) did all 91kk players play in single universe?

This. Confused

Sorry, but WoT is not an MMO in the regular sense. It's a MOG, not an MMOG.

It's a Massively Multiplayer Online?
That doesn't make sense.

MMOG.

I wonder what the PCU of something like PartyPoker.com or FullTiltPoker.com is.

Do they count as MMOGs?

Just looked at halo reach and they have 600k in the lobby or in games. So I guess WOT just lost their record.

What about facebook itself? I hear they have a few people all on at the same time in the same place.

Hey fellas, I think it's only fitting that the new guy (WoT) would want to make sure to strut their stuff at the real big boys on the street(EVE). You know kids, always wanting to outdo daddy. Cool

WoT is as much an MMO as Diablo 2 is.

That is, it isn't one at all.



Given how they argue WoT as running on a single server (ie, looser than a knot that hasn't been tied), Ragnarok Online still holds the PCU with about 1.2m concurrent players.

Are you sure that all of them were connected to one single server controlling everything (movements, hits, damage, skills progression, xp and credits gain, buying/selling stuff...)? No? I thought so.

grats on WoT for having most concurrent players sitting in lobby waiting for game where they can only interact with 30 players iirc.

It's only PCU record for single server shard. WoT didn't try to claim the largest zerg in an online game - that title is still reserved for EVE, I suppose Smile

Just because they are all connected to one server, does not mean they are only connected to one.

There is no ****ing way WoT runs off a single "Server" for everything. Much in the same way pretty much any multiplayer that isn't LAN based ever runs.
