Well it looks like Blizzard is making some more money. I think those developers can now add a 3rd ferrari to their car collections, lol.

And 3.5 million is China alone, the other 3 million spread out among the rest of the world. So it's like 1 out of every 150 million in America plays it.

but hard to believe that so many people play this. when im on i never really think of it as being that popular peeps that play it usually complaining about server shutdowns and stuff.

about a week ago on anvilmar we had a huge lag problem and the server went down gets pretty annoying at times. happens 2-3 weeks not very often but when it does makes everyone frustrated.
