Since launching in 2004, World of Warcraft has been the dominant title in the MMO scene, but how has the game fared after ten years of dominating online play? Luckily, Blizzard has those answers for you.

Released in a post on, Blizzard detailed that World of Warcraft has reached a lifetime total of over 100 million accounts created since the game’s launch in November 2004, along with a handy (and impressively epic) infographic on the game’s various stats and achievements since then. Including trial accounts and accounting for players across the world in 244 countries, the 100 million accounts total is still quite the accomplishment for a now decade-old MMO that is still going strong, with Blizzard also mentioning a number of 7.6 million active subscribers for the game, as of September 2013.
