World of Warcraft hits 10 million active players

The official subscriber count for Warcraft has reached 10 million players. Grats to Blizzard

Christ. Think about how many people that is, all playing the same game, its staggering. We’re all regularly paying a fee, learning strategies, and looking for the next piece of good gear.

And then there is me trying to get an Blood Furnace run during the off hours without success. Grumble.

They also made a small patch last night as part of the maintenance, and I’ve yet to see any un-official tweaks or nerfs made. So all good there too.

Patch notes:


– Some players may notice improved data load times when newly entering the world and after zoning into new areas.

– Character/NPC load times have been decreased, and now should appear faster. You’re not hearing voices, there really are people in Shattrath!

Bug Fixes
-Felspine the Greater in Shadowmoon Valley will no longer evade when engaged.
-Gutripper in Nagrand will no longer evade when engaged.
-Players will now be correctly credited with their arena points if they purchase an arena item during weekly arena calculations.
-Using a castsequence macro on a target moving out of range will no longer cause it to stop working.
