Curious if anyone did this [quote]Few games have had such a wide-ranging success as Wizard101. Never heard of the online game? Let's put it this way: The unique monthly users top World of Warcraft's current number of 10.2 million by almost four million more.[/quote] "They must have a rampant bot/RMT community, i wonder how many of those are actually real players"
You can't get to that many players with a game that nobody knows about.. There's something a bit wrong here.
I hoped it was about a Magicka-like game except with Pirates...
[quote]Few games have had such a wide-ranging success as Wizard101. Never heard of the online game? Let's put it this way: The unique monthly users top World of Warcraft's current number of 10.2 million by almost four million more.[/quote] Yeah, sounds totally legitimate.
[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizard_101[/url] 20 million in July? For a game I have never heard of? What the fuck. That can't be true.
The answer is simple. Bots. Bots everywhere.
Argh why the hell does that site got everything in Comic Sans [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] After some looking around it seems to be legit [video=youtube;D19iwXh9jEw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D19iwXh9jEw[/video] They even did a news report on the 20 million players thing
[QUOTE=Jack Trades;35717884]The answer is simple. Bots. Bots everywhere.[/QUOTE] But then Silkroad online would had beaten them. There were easily more bots than real people, and you would sometimes see 5 different bots stacking on top of each other to kill one monster, and thats a medium. Now imagine that in an extremely open world and multiply it by maybe 20 servers, if not more.
I remember seeing wizard101 on tv constantly and I didn't care for it because it looked to kidzy to me, now excuse me while I play spiral knights.
Yea, I've heard of this.

I seriously can't see any other way of how it can be true.

I would've agreed if this was "Runescape" or WoW we talked about. Everyone I know have played Runescape at least once, most people I know have played WoW at some point. [B]No one[/B] i know have even [B]heard[/B] of this game. Gaming community is not that big. If this game really was that big then somebody was bound to hear about it, at some point.
