Tons of cool World of Warcraft information was released by Blizzard via this monster infographic!
Back in Warcraft is our column that’s dedicated to anything and everything World of Warcraft! Whether it’s questing, dungeons, raids, news, walk-throughs, videos, PvP, PvE – if it has to do with WoW – you’ll find it here. Enjoy!
Blizzard is getting in on the infographic craze that seems to continue taking the Internet by storm by releasing one of their own for World of Warcraft. Theirs however, is truly massive! It has all kinds of cool, fun and even shocking information. It’s way too large for us to post on this site so you’ll have to check it out for yourself, here.
The most surprising thing we found was that in the almost 10 years of World of Warcraft over 100,000,000 million unique accounts have been created. Yes – 100 million! That is a crazy statistic!
Now, obviously Blizzard immediately turns that into the claim of “100 million players” – but we all know there are people with multiple accounts – I actually know someone personally that has 4 accounts. Regardless of marketing spin though, that’s still an insanely epic number.
Some other cool tidbits are:
- 52% of players play Alliance
- 47% of players play Horde
- 1% of players remain neutral (ROFL!?)
- More than 500 million characters have been created in World of Warcraft since launch
- 900,000 PVE instances (Dungeons, Raids, Scenarios) are run daily. Yes…daily.
- 11 million achievements are accomplished…again…daily.
