Nice milestone, but really the number is not that impressive when you consider they count anyone who ever even looked at the game whether they actually played it or not.

Many of the accounts are anything but active players... Many have only 1-2 games played, spam accounts for trolls, spam accounts that offer fake gold coins. So the thing with 60M accounts is pure BS!

yup i have friends with 5-10 accounts each....

Having been looking at this title for a while now but not doing much research, is the grind really that bad? Being an MMO, I would expect there to be some form of grind to unlock more tanks and upgrades or modifications but does it take that much away from the game itself?

The grind is manageable, but once you reach tier 7, it becomes tough, even with a premium subscription and premium tanks(which have increased in-game credit generation, but are generally weaker than maxed out tanks in the same tier). It's extraordinarily difficult to get above tier 8 without a premium account

90% of those accounts quit by the time they figure out how crazy the hard the grind is without premium. A further 9% quit by the time they figure out how crazy hard the grind is WITH premium....

LOL, I was about to say something in the same regard, Iím one of those who quit playing it after one week. And youíre right, itís a grind fest to try and get level up and get better Tanks and gear. I liked the game, but hated how the model works.

1 week? You do not know anything about grind. Everything is cake up to about tier 7. Tier 8 is when the grind starts.
