This afternoon, BigWorld-Powered World of Tanks celebrated its one year anniversary. Here’s what Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi had to say about the matter.
“Our growth over the last year has been nothing short of amazing. A year ago, no one in the company could possibly imagine that World of Tanks would have skyrocketed like this.”
We’ve been happy to follow World of Tanks through this success, and only wish them the best in their future. Below are a few statistics of the game since its first year of being live.
- 24 million registered users
- 350 million battles
- 75 billion shots fired
- 48 billion hits (27 billion misses)
- 13 billion armored vehicles destroyed
Last January, World of Tanks broke the Guinness World Record for the Most Players Online Simultaneously on One MMO Server, with the number of players totaling 91,311. They’ve since then broken this record again many times, totaling upwards of 450,000 players concurrently online. Looks like it’s time for Guinness to update the books!
Here’s a video commemorating their first year of going live, complete with dubsteb and explosions.
