World of Tanks sets Guinness World Record
Move over EVE Online -- there's a new sheriff in Single Server Population Town, and his name is World of Tanks.

This surprisingly popular MMO, which is still hip-deep in beta, already has one record for the books -- literally. Wargaming.net announced that World of Tanks set the Guinness World Record for Most Players Online Simultaneously on One MMO Server. The event happened on January 23rd, as 91,311 players crowded onto its Russian server.

CEO Victor Kislyi thinks the game can do better: "However, with the population of the game growing steadily another week or two, [it] would let us report a more impressive record as the current PCCU number surpasses 120,000 players."

If you'd like to get in on this record-setting title, the North American beta and the European beta are both accepting tank drivers every day.
