GJA: World of Tanks is Best MMO

Wargaming ends successful year with an award

World of Tanks has been awarded Best MMO at the 2012 hmv Golden Joystick Awards, beating runners-up League of Legends and Star Wars: The Old Republic.


Wargaming's multiplayer hit - described by Joystick organisers as "Counter-Strike with tanks" - has reiterated its position as an online behemoth this year, again breaking the Guiness World Record for most players online simultaneously on one MMO server (105,000).

This month the game also reached a mammoth 40 million subscribers.

Over four million votes were cast in this year's Golden Joysticks - almost twice the previous Guinness World Record-breaking best.
