New World of Tanks Record

Wargaming.net announces another concurrent player milestone for World of Tanks, their MMO shooter:

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."

There's nothing massive about the multiplayer in this game. The fact that they keep toting it as a MMO and posting these "records" just makes them look like assholes.

I wonder how they convinced Guinness that 250k russians connecting to a chat lobby for a 15v15 game counts as "One MMO Server".

And I don't want to hear their bullshit about persistent character advancement making it a MMO. By that logic BF3 and the Modern Warfare series are MMOs (and more massive) as well since you can gain ranks on your character.
