After seeing taela's post on Pachter's estimate of 50 million accounts for swtor (this is after going free to play), it might make sense. You have free to play games like runescape who tells the world they have 200 million accounts registered worldwide.
The numbers are being marketed right now, so perhaps what michael pachter was trying to say is they may have 50 million accounts registered once its free to play. I have played swtor, its a great single player game with mmo attached to it.
I quit and gave them the feedback that swtor is a great single player game, and it is not worth the $15 a month.
Its very true, that swtor 1-50 leveling tread is great, but my predcition is that those free to play players will not buy stuff from cash shop and just level on 1-50 and quit. The end game is boring, there was no reason why free to play players will sub just for end game and other perks, those perks are not worth it imo. I would not be suprised if guidl wars 2 annouce they have 3 million box sold and 3 million accounts registered, its there to hype up the product and tell mmo players that they have tons of players in their games.
