Since when did online games such as WoT and LoL become MMOs?

"A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO and MMOG) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting hundreds or thousands of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet, and feature at least one persistent world."

You have what in WoT? 30 players in a match? No persistent world either. Neither LoL or WoT fall into the MMO category. If it did then pretty much every online game could be classified as a MMO which would make the label useless.

so does WoT do. Who told you that everyone has to play in one battle?

On saturday's evening there is often ~100k players in game. I think thats enough for "massive" :)

30 players is more like a bit of a bar brawl, but the devs are working on making larger maps able to support more players, and they will also need better servers for those, it isn't as easy as saying "we want a true mmo right now"

have a little faith, they're working on it.

Rome wasn't built in one day, and wot wasn't made overnight.

it is still in a development stage even if it is now officially released.

can't wait though to get battles were you have more than just 2.5 dozen of ppl.

They are on the same time on the same server, just in different "instances" (different random games, garage, CW and so on...).

Other Games (like Guild Wars 2) have different Servers were "only" a few thousands players are.

Looking here for additional information:

makes no sense at all. Just like the existence of the award itself.
