“…the Hottest MMO of the Year”
“…the second largest MMORPG”
What game is this? No, not that one. Guess again. Give up? It’s Lord of the Rings Online, at least according to the latest press release. 4 million characters? What does that even mean? I have 5 characters. Lets even assume everyone has 4 characters, that translates to 1 million subscriptions. Are they counting people that cancelled? Free trials? Where do they get these numbers?
Oh look here – way at the bottom: “Comparison data includes subscription-based MMORPG titles developed in North America based on reported data.”
I am more interested in seeing how these companies spin the statistics than almost any other aspect of the game.
