Umm. World of Tanks is NOT an MMO, mkay?

Online games such as the Battlefield series, TeamFortress, and similar titles are what they are. But what they are not, is MMOs.

This is really the wrong site to be doing Promo for this type of game, no matter how good it might be for what it is.

@Innocentte

The game is deeper than it looks. Clans have the ability to battle for parts of maps and hold control on a persistent map.

Granted, 90% of players will stick to CTF maps, but if you're looking for more of a game beyond that, it's there.

@Innocentte On one hand I can see what you mean, but it *does* have some customization options for crews and tanks that follow an MMO formula, and would appeal to MMO players because of that.

So I don't see the problem with promoting a game that would have mmo-flavor to the mmo crowd. Massively is here to give players information on games they might enjoy.

@Pingles Uh no, clans don't have the ability to battle for territories. I've been playing the game since july and I like it, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here. They had planned to test the clan wars during open beta but things don't always go as planned and they postponed release by about a month and clan wars testing two months after release. Also over a month ago they said clans can begin to register but apart from the forum announcement, nothing happened since.
And the additional part that clan wars adds is the map viewable through the browser to know what clan has what province - a glorified scoreboard.
However, if anyone really wants to test clan wars it is available in Russia. The rest of the world has to wait a bit.

At first glance I thought the headline was 'World of Yanks progression detailed in third video tutorial' and thought 'Worst MMO ever..."
