If you’ve ever wondered just how many folks you can cram into one MMO server all at the same time, you’ve come to the right place. That number is, right now, 190,541.

That is the number of players that were logged on to a single Russian World of Tanks server while Guinness was watching, and so that means that number is now an Official World Record.

The previous record was also held by World of Tanks. In 2011 they managed 91,311 players on one server. That really doesn’t seem like all that much anymore.
