World of Tanks console celebrates four years with 14 million players

The juggernaut known as World of Tanks seems unstoppable, with 14 million players to date in its console versions alone.

The title is celebrating its fourth birthday on consoles this month, and all 14 million of those drivers are welcome to  a free Tier II Ashigaru Te-Ke tank and three free anniversary war chests. To get the tank, you’ll need to log in and win a single battle between February 9th and March 1st. The war chests are available only from the 13th through the 14th for anyone who enters the game.

So let’s look at the game’s stats, shall we? Out of those 14 million players, 5.3M have been on the PlayStation 4, with the other 8.9M on the Xbox One. Over those four years, 90 million battles were fought, 44 billion shells fired, and four billion tanks destroyed. The console editions averaged 228,000 battles every single day in 2017 alone.

Here’s another fun fact: 850,000 tanks were destroyed by falling off a cliff. Even more — five million — were wrecked by “drowning.” Perhaps these tank drivers need proper instruction?

I enjoyed World of Tanks; the only form of PvP that I actually liked. Drifted away from the game when being an occasional player wasn’t good enough not to get yelled at in chat. I can get my own family to yell at me, I don’t need to look elsewhere. I’m glad that the game is still doing well for those with thicker skins (armor?) than me.

Thats what i hate the most about all pvp games. People are quick to put out verbal abuse for anything. If it isnt boasting or emoting offensive acts, its putting people down for their play. So what about w/l or k/d ratios, that shouldnt matter in anything that isnt up for real money(esports).

I’ll give Blizzard a lot of credit for HoTS. Just turning off the smack talk between teams takes a lot of venom out of the game. I turn off chat. My general attitude is shut up and play.
