    PR: over 100 million users (where 80million players were trials)

    HAHAHA, bu**sh*t!

    Reality: "Try to not lose 5 million old players in the next quarter and hope the new 1 million players will be us before the next Exp. (WoD)"
    Remember: after ICC WoW losing 140k subs/month
    NUMBERS don't give those to the PR managers! Burn them with FIRE!

    6 month subscription to the winners.
    9 month subscription to the losers.

    A lot of those stats are just meaningless. The ones about titles are meaningless because they are the default titles your alts get. The 100M is meaningless because it includes trial accounts.

    the most interesting one for me is the # of pet battles. Is there any doubt why Garrisons are going to be the big feature of the next expansion?

    100 Million "players" (bullshit detector is going nuts) with ~7 million active is a horrible retention rate.

    How many 10 year old games have retained 7% of all players who have ever purchased/made an account after that amount of time with a monthly subscription cost?

    I have no facts to back it up, but I would make an educated guess that the answer is "one". World of Warcraft.

    I wonder if they count Battle.net accounts that have tried WoW or just WoW accounts. I missclicked in account management once and accidentally added a trial account to my already active WoW account. It still shows up as a separate game on my B.net account.

    Over almost ten years, it's pretty good. That 7% of all people who tried the demo would still be playing is a great figure.
    Diplomacy is just war by other means.

    Just to give you perspective, look at a website like Skyrim Nexus where even the top rated mods only have about 1 or 2% of the downloaders actually endorsing them. Seems like the same concept. 7% is a good number.

    I have a hard time believing that too. I saw 3 people having the serpent in my server while I saw the Qiraji only once.

    I think the most interesting fact is that out of the 1000-5000 people that are on Antarctica at any given time atleast one of them has logged into WoW atleast once from there.

    Return to WoW Giveaway (EU)
    .... This contest is only open to EU players, so please only sign up if you play on EU realms.
    Eligibility: Open to legal residents of the United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland)
    It is okay if you do not know every country what belongs to EU, afterall most European couldn't tell each and every states of the US.. but thinking UK == EU is kinda harsh...

    I think they made this one up so they could have a new and nice looking mount there. The Sha serpent is a nice mount which represents the current expansion.

    Yeah I found that number to be pretty funny too. Blizzard counts all those bots and gold spammers as "players" I guess. A fine example of false advertising here.

    pretty sure they only use obtainable mounts. showing an un-obtainable mount is poor marketing
