Million Concurrent Players
World of Warcraft is currently the most popular Massive Multiplayer Online Game in the world. It sold millions of copies, and that is probably due to the fact that it is accessible even for young players due to low difficulty. It is also friendly for casual players and it gained so much popularity because the developers of World of Warcraft are releasing this game all over the world. Conquering the Chinese market has been an objective for Blizzard for a long time, and it seems that they achieved this goal, as World of Warcraft exceeded 1 million concurrent Chinese players logged at the same time. The Chinese authorities from the very beginning were not in awe of the game, and even prohibited some parts of the game to be realized in China. However, it seems that the voice of the consumers is stronger, and that Chinese people are really eager to partake in the Western culture. One of the reasons World of Warcraft is a big controversy in China is that it has skeletons in the game. The Chinese authorities do not like that at all, but this did not stop this Western game to gain popularity in Asia. World of Warcraft is also one of the most popular games in Korea.
