They're making about $15 per account, from all 5,000,000 of em. Yeah, I doubt they want to kill their income. They've got no other (current) games out. Their last before WoW was Warcraft 3, and expansion, that was 2 or 3 years ago or so, I believe. They stopped bugging the few people who care about Starcraft Ghost by stopping "working" on it (like they've done anything, 6 screenshots in 4 years).
yeah ive always been wondering why GW doesnt need monthly fees though im greatful for that.. ive was in the game dev scene for a little while and saw the fees for MMORPG servers each month.. the numbers are.. big. but keep it up gw =)
Blizzard is getting greedy, I guess there old game sales wasn't enough for them now their charging an obscene 15$ a month for a damn video game. I heard GW was good, so I might be getting it soon.
