Since its original launch in October of 2010, Wargaming.nets World War II tank MMO has literally took the MMO world by storm. It first began to explode at the beginning of this year on January 23rd as World of Tanks conquered the previous entry in the Guinness World Record books, amassing 91,311 concurrent players on a single MMO server. A couple of months later, March 2012, Wargaming.net released some astonishing figures based on player activity, including 345 million recorded battles and 75 billion fired shells.
Continuing on this relentless pursuit of domination World of Tanks broke the record for the most concurrent players on a single server again in April of 2012, collecting a staggering 105,000 during a special premium event on the EU servers. The front lines continue to push forward today as it has just been announced that the game has attracted over 40 million subscribers, with a new record featuring 400,000 players on a single server. A massive leap in only 6 months.
