World of Warcraft stats reveal 100 million accounts, Alliance slightly ahead on numbers

World of Warcraft Infographic

By on January 29, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Blizzard have posted a big ol’ infographic about the numbers behind World of Warcraft, and it’s full of juicy tidbits — like, for example, that there are now over 100 million World of Warcraft accounts in total, across 244 countries — even in places like Antarctica (apparently!).

Horde players also need to life their game, picking up only 47% of heroes compared to the Alliance’s 52% — with 1% remaining neutral as Pandaren.

Check out the full infographic over here. Interesting!

I wonder how active those accounts are, it would be interesting to know how many are logged into at least once a week.

 

Yeah it doesn’t mention how many active accounts, just how many accounts, including trial accounts, have been created since the game launched. That said 100 million accounts is a lot.

 

Oh yeah it is a big number, but not quite as impressive if only 23 million of them are played regularly!

 

would this include accounts that were not changed in to battlenet accounts? or did they get deleted since it swapped like 7 whatever years ago

Bit hard when there’s only ~7 million active subscribers these days and dropping :P

 

Can’t believe this has been going since 2004.
