Wow: Blizzard Celebrates 10 Years, 100,000,000 World Of Warcraft Players With An Infographic

Note: This isn't the whole thing, I had to cut it to prevent scrolling-related carpal tunnel, hit the jump to see it all.

This is an inforgraphic created by Blizzard to celebrate ten years of World of Warcraft and passing 100,000,000 lifetime players of the game. For reference, that's 100,000,000 times the number of people who have ever showed up for one of my game nights (thanks, James).

Keep going for the entire thing and get your learn on.

Thanks to PapaKaster and Deathheart14, who are part of the 1% of neutral characters who haven't sided with the Horde or Alliance. Presumably because they prefer to stay out of confrontation and just spend their time mining gold to buy the nicest gem cut recipes for jewelcrafting.

    So, per month fees would bring in $1.2B? WOW!

  • Love it. Hate it. This game has been a very big part of a lot of people's lives over the last nearly 10 years. (wow, that long?) Can't help but wonder if any MMO will ever be able to recreate that feeling of wonder that WoW first gave us.

    Where are the stats on gold farmers??? They must represent at least half of the population.

  • TyDurd

    Where's the section of the info-graphic where it illustrates how fast they hemorrhaging players?

  • Ollie Williams

    Regardless of the (skewed and irrelevant) stats, an infographic isn't going to save Blizzard's failing franchise.

    Yeah, nothing lasts forever and WoW is slowly dying, but it was fucking great for a long time. I don't really see any point to your scorn, honestly. Did WoW mow your lawn or something?

  • Ollie Williams

    I don't have a problem with Blizzard. I do have a problem with shitty infographics that are being passed off as a "thank you", when in reality it's a marketing piece. The only reason this bothers me is I am in the design industry. If Blizzard wants to thank me, they can give me a refund for the last two years I played WoW (8 total) and stayed with them when their content was absolute garbage.

  • Soylent Green Is People

    So you say that don't have a problem with Blizzard, but your last sentence basically refutes that. Just sayin'.

  • Ollie Williams

    Fair enough. I guess I do have a problem with Blizzard.

  • NOTALAWYERBUTIPLAYONEONTV

    Ender already said it but if you paid for something for TWO YEARS that you thought was "garbage" you only have yourself to blame.

  • Ender

    If you payed for 24 months of content you felt was "garbage", you have no-one to blame but yourself.
