World of Tanks Record

Wargaming.net announces that World of Tanks has set another world record for concurrent players in an MMOG, saying on January 23rd 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 Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi. "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." Earlier this year they announced a record of 74,536 online players.

Yep they are short, few minutes only. At least the ones I've played last night were around 5 minutes or so. I can imagine some games can be drawn out for longer if some people likes to hide I guess.

Oh another thing make sure to give the game some time when you try it. Play at least 4-5 games before you call it quits if you don't like it. It gets better with time and as you figure out the controls and places to snipe from on maps.
OK and thanks. I hope the games are short since I don't have time to play games these days. I just play a lot of short Flash games these days. Haha.

Not sure, hard to tell what a tank supposed to handle like in RL. It is a fun game but the tactics to play this game is totally different from the tactics of playing a shooter game.
Give it a try, it is free.
Alright, I assume it is still free after beta?

Not sure. It is free right now so I guess there is nothing to loose to try it. The tanks do feel different from one another and the weapon upgrades do make a difference but as a new player I am getting destroyed a lot so I am just following the rest of my team mates and try to find hiding spots to ambush the enemy.
Be sure to watch those tutorial videos first that was posted below, they do help a lot.

Is this game fun as Battlefield series' tanks? I love those.
No not even close. The game is fun but the vehicles don't handle like in BF, and the tactics are not like a FPS game, totally different.
Oh. What is it like? Arcade? Simulation? The videos look like arcadeish.

I think it's a great game. As long as you don't expect FPS tactics to work, you'll do well. Actual tank tactics and teamwork work, with everyone playing their roles.

I suggest you ignore the 1v1 "Tutorial" matches and jump right into the multiplayer. Usually on the 1v1 matches, you face experienced players with better tanks and just get ganked - no fun at all and it turns off most people. To get a real feel for the game, you've got to play the normal matches. When you die (quickly) watch what the surviving tanks are doing and learn to play that way.

The best tank to start out with is the American one, mostly because the next tank you get (the M2) is a very fast and fun tank to play. Also, if you hide in bushes, you're practically invisible and can set up ambushes - an easy way to get early experience.

oh they're tanks, and they live a game that closely resembled a crack delivery service. simple controls, but they're all very detailed and hisorically accurate reproductions of prototype and mass produced ww2 tanks.

I've tried it a little while back and I got into a MP game 1vs1 needless to say how that ended up for me. I am willing to give it another try though because it looks interesting, especially if I can find a game that is not 1 vs 1.

Yup, drop everything and play this game. Besides, it's free!

On youtube, check out the World of Tanks Tutorial videos (part 1, 2 and now 3) for a great look at the game.

It's fun game, worth try. As was said, it's not really a typical MMO, you get experiences and credits for each battle, you invest experiences and into your tank development and credits for buying new equipment and better tanks, also your tank crew gains experience and evolve - that's where the similarity with MMO ends. Rest of it mathmaking and battles - which are combination of team deathmatch and capture the (enemy) base modes.

Best way to find out what is this game about is watch these three tutorial videos: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

If you want to try the game, then when you register it via GamersGate, you will get one premium tank for free.

FFS its not a MMO. Its a Match Making game.

Might as well call every game that has a game lobby a MMO from now..sc2 and BFBC2 also has thousands of players waiting for games at any given time.
