5 Million WoW Users

Is there a single person out there that doesn't play WoW?
I guess not- Shacknews
reports that there are now a total of 5 million subscribers to WoW! Wow!

For those of you keeping score at home. Blizzard Entertainment has just announced
that they have now reached 5 million paying subscribers to World of Warcraft
across the globe. In late July it was 3.5 million and then 4 million in late
August. So 5 million is like, a lot more.
IRVINE, Calif. – December 19, 2005 – Blizzard Entertainment,
Inc. today announced that World of Warcraft®, its
massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), has surpassed five
million customers worldwide. The subscription-based MMORPG launched approximately
one year ago in North America, Australia, and New Zealand and has since released
in multiple countries throughout Europe and Asia.
So then... 5 million people paying roughly $12 - $15 per month would be $60
- $75 million each month. Perhaps if they work really hard they get to gross
over a billion dollars next year.


When Warlords of Draenor launches, Blizzard is planning a huge stat squish, where all numbers get much smaller. Is this a good or bad thing for players?
