Happy holidays, World of Tanks, and congratulations on being almost as enormous as this image file.

Wargaming has released a handy collection of facts regarding its phenomenally popular MMO, World of Tanks – just one of a number of free-to-play war games it has up its sleeve. The tank battler is played in all corners of the world including Vatican City; apparently deacons and archbishops are among its 45 million players.

World of Tanks attracts up to 617,000 simultaneous players, and has been played for 230,000 years in total. 600 million battles took place in this time, destroying 13.2 billion tanks.

Cor blimey. All the details and much more below.

Thanks, Polygon.

    With 45 million players, how long will it be before we see a tank killing spree?

    Dangerous times.

    45 million ‘registered’ but only 600K battling simultaneously? I haven’t played this but had an eye on it but was waiting for End of Nations. Now that’s gone down the pan, I might try this over xmas
