Mists of Pandaria sold better than expected


Disproving any previous rumours, Mists of Pandaria’s sales proved better than expected. Over 2,7 million copies of the online roleplaying game were sold, and the total amount of subscribers once again counts more than ten million players. It would be wise not too draw conclusions too soon, however, since games like these are known to lose a lot of subscribers after the initial “honeymoon period” wears off.

 

World of Warcraft Cross Realm Zones Explained And Subscriber Numbers Remain Steady


Great news on the World of Warcraft website! Cross realm zones are coming to the beta! Probably in response to the immense amount of requests for free realm transfers Blizzard has implemented this cool feature into the game. It might – or rather, it will – seem pretty vague but it’s not that hard to understand. Whenever a zone is low-populated (just about every zone nowadays) the game fluidly adds players from other realms to that zone (it’s done fluidly without any loading screens or hold up or whatsoever) so you don’t feel like playing a singleplayer game. You can chat with them, party up with them and do quests, you can even visit another zone with him or her as long as you are both in the same instance! While this is great news because the world fill finally be filled with players again, there’s also a few negative sides to note, but who knows, perhaps Blizzard will think of something smart to fix those things:

  • PvE/PvP realm players who invade RP realms and ruin the party there.
  • Being from the same realm means even less now.
  • Nodes being stolen.
  • Some more difficulties.

In other news, World of Warcraft has retained it’s subscriber numbers of 10.2 million.
