World of Warcraft hits 10 million players

So Blizzard must be delighted, WOW finally hits 10 million paying subscribers, is there no stopping it…

I find myself wondering why, after the initial excitement, the last expansion (The Burning Crusade) took a lot of shine off the game.

The unrelenting need to grind for rep and better items eventually takes its toll and to add to that our guild, Go Rin No Sho, (, despite having arguably some of the best and most committed players on our server (Bronzebeard) , we still struggle with the higher level content. The curve is just too steep, other than for people who really have no life whatsoever.

With the next expansion (World of Warcraft: The Wrath of the Lich King Expansion Pack (PC)), still sometime away (Amazon are listing it as September 2008), it seems likely that some of us will get bored and fall away before then.

Having said that I still have 3 level 70 characters and another one on the way!  🙂
