World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is a veritable tidal wave! Indeed, with 3.3 million units distilled on the day of its release, he became the best selling PC game in history in less than 24 hours. However, the real question remains: how is it used?
Raptr tells us that the players enjoyed themselves generally 6 am and 23 minutes during the first day and the average session is 2 hours and 10 minutes. The report states that these averages are quite similar to FPS such as Halo or Call of Duty.
But in the case of a disaster, there is a large imbalance. Indeed, 11% of players doing half the airtime on the general game! Proof that hard core gamers are decidedly unlike. Still after these news, a player would have spent 149 hours logged to Wow the week of release Cataclysm. Obviously, you can also stay online without playing, eh?Finally, note that 1 / 3 of the players play more than 30 hours per week and a majority of the benefit as the Blizzard of less than 5 hours weekly. In this case, it leaves, fortunately, the time to play something else (or your girlfriend) ...
Also according Raptr, attendance titles such as League of Legends, Call of Duty StarCraft II Black Ops and would have greatly lowered in part "because" the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, available since December 7, 2010 on PC and Mac. And this is not the launch party held at the FNAC Champs-Elysees we will say the opposite as the fans were present.
Already holds the record for most number of games sold on PC in less than 24 hours with 3.3 million copies sold, WoW Cataclysm has set a new record, one of the greatest number of games sold on the PC always in 1 month with 4.7 million copies sold.
An impressive figure, but is certainly far from the supposedly 12 million active players on WoW! A question torments me so, what are the 7.3 million "active gamers" who have not bought the expansion?
After the feat of being Forscience past level 85 in just over 5 hours, making this course the first world (World First), a new exploit was made ??before yesterday, the First World Kill a raid boss heroic to 25 players, ie Halfus Breaker Wyrm proceeding stronghold of Twilight, by the American Guild Adept.
The same feat was achieved by the European guild Ensidia but only 10 players.If we can find it all too fast only 10 days after leaving the game, you have obviously put things in perspective and say that we are dealing with quasi-professionals who do not represent any and while a hundred players on over 12 million.
No panic to have a priori on the general level of difficulty of Cataclysm, especially when you see how the common man still struggling in heroic 5-player instances.
