Welcome to Azeroth, Population 12 Million

E-mail Print

wow-logoMMO juggernaut World of Warcraft now has over 12 million subscribers worldwide, according to an Activision press release that came out today. Let's see if we can put that into perspective.

According to the repository of all modern knowledge, AKA Wikipedia, the WoW population is somewhere between the states of Ohio (11,542,645) and Pennsylvania (12,604,767).

In country terms, their more than Chad (11,506,000), but not quite at Zimbabwe's level (12,644,00). Keep trying, Blizzard! If you apply yourself, we're sure you can get into Zambia territory (13,257,000).
