The success of World of Tanks shouldn’t be that surprising. It’s tanks. Versus tanks. Lots of explosions, lots of strategy, lots of a lot of fun, in other words. But the success of the game is shocking even considering how easily justifiable the premise is. According to Wargaming.net, they’ve just passed the 40 million registered users milestone.
“These staggering numbers could not have been reached without your constant support and dedication to the game,” the developer said in an official statement. “We at Wargaming are very proud to have such loyal fans and want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our players for making World of Tanks such a success!”
I think this conclusively proves F2P gaming will kill the subscription-based MMO.
