    Down to about 8,000,000 I think.  All my brothers play it I've stayed away mostly but recently I started a monk to my surprise there are a few lower levels running around.  I'm a tank but last night at level 20 instant qued for two dungeons.

    As a tank you will ALWAYS insta-queue for a dungeon. (:

    DPS's are not so lucky, though.

    Check out Realmpop.com

    That should give you a pretty good idea

    While still far from its peak this sale seems to be getting a lot of MMO newbies to sign up.  At least if reddit is any indication.  But, it's still by far the largest MMO population wise.

    3-4m US/EU by last tally. A large portion of the remainder is China.

    More than every other P2P game combined. If you're thinking of going back, there are still loads of people to play with.

    What he's saying seems right ? 3-4 million in us/eu which leaves 3-4 million in china ( asia )

    I have been running some DPS lately and the queues aren't bad, even at odd times in early morning finding dungeons in less than 15 minutes. Of course tanks and heals are pretty instant.

    I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

    last known tally for regional numbers  - WOW was 55% Asian

    http://wow.joystiq.com/2008/01/22/world-of-warcraft-hits-10-million-subscribers/

    Asia is the biggest market at the moment, with more than 5.5 million players, as compared to North America's 2.5 million and 2 million subscribers in Europe.

    Anecdotal of course, but there were a lot of South Koreans playing WoW in 2008. Today, I don't know any South Koreans who play it. The only Blizzard game of interest in S Korea seems to be SC2. 

     

    Of course, there are people playing it here, but not among the uni students. LoL is the all the rage here, now, even over SC2.

     

    If Blizz says 7.5, I believe them, but I don't know the regional breakdown and I have no idea how it's doing in China. But it has fallen off sharply in Korea from what I've seen, and Korea was a huge market for them a few years ago.

    That sort of falls in line with what Blizzard said about their losses earlier in the year, that a lot of the loss had come from the eastern markets.

    It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.
