Coming from a press release, the most trustworthy source of information on the planet, it seems that Blade & Soul hit one million active players. These wizard words make me paranoid as to if they had one million players online at one time, one million players crying in the queue, or one million accounts. Either way, they hit one million of something which only speaks volumes of how much interest is in Blade & Soul right now.

In addition to the announcement that one million players are playing the game (or waiting in queues, these dang wizard words), you can also find that NCSoft West is commited to bringing updates to the game in rapid succesion.

Anyway, this is neat and everything. If you haven't tried Blade & Soul, it's well worth the try, and you'd be helping bringing them closer to the 2 million milestone.

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (January, 25, 2016) – Within days of its official launch in North America and Europe, NCSOFT West’s highly anticipated MMORPG, Blade & Soul, has reached a milestone of more than one million people playing the game.
