While we may have to wait until November to celebrate the official 10th year anniversary for the behemoth of an MMO known as World of Warcraft, Blizzard has popped the cork early with a quite large infographic detailing for the first time a number of stats on their long-running title.
According to the image, there has been over 100 million unique accounts created since launching in 2004, though this does include both normal and trial accounts. Still, a massive feat for any MMO on the market today considering the life expectancy in the genre and Blizzard puts that into perspective with it equating to twice as many accounts as people living in South Korea.
World of Warcraft is also played over 244 countries and territories, including Antarctica, the Bahamas, Christmas Island and Tokelau. Interestingly the population spread is on average 52% Alliance, 47% Horde and 1% Neutral. 9 million guilds have been made, with 500 million characters created inside the world of Warcraft.
Wanting to know what players in Azeroth do everyday? Well it seems the most popular content to do is the Pet Battles, which makes up 3.6 million battles a day. For PvE instances its 900k, and PvP amounts to 670k a day. Now that is a lot of content being consumed by players across the globe.
