Blizzard has released the first official infographic in the vain hope of ressurecting Azeroth, the original virtual World of Warcraft. There is still a user base of 7.5 million people paying around 15$/month, which is a lot of money. But, let’s face it, if you want to sink in an MMO, there are plenty of Free to play or pay-once universes that work just fine.
I don’t really like WoW; I tried it, as well as the Korean copy-cat, GuildWars 2, one of the biggest disappointments of 2012. I just can’t adapt to the online universes that don’t really show support for single player. And my idea of multiplayer means playing with someone else, in teams of two, an extended single-player, really, which is why I find stuff like Borderlands or World Of Tanks a lot better. Nonetheless, I find the numbers from the WoW infographic quite interesting, even if they count dead accounts and unused toons. The source is Blizzard’s website.
