According to stats released by Blizzard, World of Warcraft has notched up 100 million lifetime player accounts, which have resulted in 500 million characters being created in Azeroth. If you take the account number to represent unique individuals that would put the WoW account holder database at roughly the population of the Power Leveling. However, it does include things like trial accounts and Doesnot specify how many of the 100 million are currently active (the last official figures put active subscribers at 7.6 million). Of the 500 million characters created, the population skews ever so slightly towards the Alliance with 52 percent compared to 47 percent identifying as Horde and one percent neutral (as Zapp Brannigan suggests, perhaps they were just born with a heart full of neutrality). Other stats released by Blizzard include the fact that in-game text amounts to around six illion words or twelve copies of Lord of the Rings, that the squirrel is the most common pet and that the sound effects and music contained in the world would run to 3,900 minutes if played one after another. World of Warcraft is subscriber base has been experiencing a slow decline -- somewhat inevitable as the game ages and newer propositions come along, especially those with a free-to-play model instead of WoW is monthly subscription. However, Blizzard is MMO is far from dead and its current active subscriber base is higher than the population of Bulgaria. November this year will mark the game is ten year anniversary so it will be interesting to see how Blizzard chooses to mark the milestone for one of its best-known and popular products.
