I remember abusing the bug to use a shield+pistol at the same time during beta. Man that was fun.

World of Warcraft (12 million subscribers)

That's just subscriptions, if you include the sales of the expansion packs, merchandising, premium account features and the like, it's alot more. It's also been expanding hugely since the article was written.

They are literally selling time at a premium and people are buying it.

No. Around half of the subscriber base is in China, and due to the Chinese government, you cant charge a monthly fee, so you have to pay as you go. So instead of $15 USD a month, its like 20 US cents an hour over there. (not the exact price BTW)

No it's just crap by default.

Also there have been many energy filled drink deaths while playing WOW due to dehydration, and before all you fanatics jump on me like a little girl scorned try this on for size.

I have a mate (we all do) he is unemployed bludging from the government benefits who has a wife and son that left him because he couldn't keep a job because he wanted to sit and bludge all day to play wow, now he comes over to have a social once a week and all he talks about is WOW. I mean do you think I give a toss about his level 80 paladin?

I wouldn't hate it so much if it didn't tear his family apart, so last time he went to open his mouth about I put him on his ass, lanky streak of ducks urine.

I loved Warcraft (many fond memories), Warcraft II and III but this is just a monumental waste of time and HDD space to me.

ya ya.. best selling eh? I suppose cocaine is running a close 2nd with WoW? lol So bored of even hearing of the game now. If someone pulled on tabula rasa on the game I would sleep better knowing there would be real mmo news again.

Its WoW who cares? I have a mate who we have good chats at school bout Hardware and overclocking (Rare cos everyone where I live plays S***box 360) and we had his friend talk to him about WoW interrupting our convo with "I'm Level 70, what are you?" and my friend was looking at me like "Will he ****", and WoW just trashes peoples opinion of PC Gaming... Ive been nagged with the question "Do I play WoW?" so many times I wanna punch them out, find a chick, some friends, a life, or all of the above....

If you cant hold a Job cause you wanna play WoW and bludge while wasting Taxpayers money then thats fine, just dont expect to make friends out of a "Game"..

End of rant..
