The reasons of success

Before World of Tanks, there were no similar online games, that's why the project became so popular. The group of Belarus programmers managed to create a new online game sector. Wargaming(current name of the company, acquired after the start of the project) has managed to attract a new audience to MMOG-games: except teenagers in the "World of Tanks", there are a lot of  30-40-year-old men who were indifferent to the fantasy worlds. Instead, mock cartoon players are offered the historically accurate story. In World of Tanks, the real armored cars are fighting at the battlefields. In Wot battles usually last from 5 to 15 minutes, which is much less than in fantasy online games. WoT has quite simple interface and tutorial for the novices.

The reasons of success

The second reason for the success of WoT is the soft monetization model. World of Tanks is based on free2play model - it can be played absolutely free, in contrast to World of Warcraft, which is using a subscription model. A user of "Tanks" can buy a premium account, which allows him to develop the armored vehicles up to 50% faster, significantly increasing their combat abilities or can buy exclusive technique not available in the free version. Wargaming gets the main revenue for premium accounts that worth about $ 10 per month (plus premium technique).

The reasons of success

The original concept and relatively low prices led to the great popularity of WoT. Records of World of Warcraft have been beaten a long time ago. For the current moment, there are more than one hundred million of registered users in the game. Approximately 5 million committed a purchase in WoT. Today, World of Tanks is actually an interactive world where people can get acquainted, communicate, unite in clans and fight for the lands of Global Map (which is paid with gold). All over the world, WoT tournaments are held, which makes the game more and more popular among amateurs and professional cyber-sportsmen.

Every few months, the developers update the game, making it more progressive, diverse and interesting.

The company doesn't disclose financial results, but authoritative analytical agency SuperData estimated revenue of $500 million in 2014.

Blizzard exists for more than twenty years, it produces the world famous franchise- Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, etc., and it earns just three and a half times more than Belarusian Wargaming.
