I'd personally like to see statistics on a few things in the game to truly assess the health of the population.#1: veteran accounts that were around on day 1#2: accounts with 24+ months of continuous time#3: acccounts with 12+ months of continuous time (new players from the expansion)#4: accounts with less than 6 months of subscription time.I think at the point where #3 and 4 overtake #1 and #2, the game is probably in a bit of trouble. I also think we're at the point where a lot of the #1 and 2 players are going to get bored with the whole experience and the reset of 10 more levels and a grind with rep grinds and then raid/PVP grinds. Of course the next expansion will still sell millions of copies, and wow will still have millions of subs.. but that's not really the same thing. WoW clearly has a lot of customers they can bleed and still be the most successful MMO around. I'd really just like to know the churn rate and the veteran attrition rate. They can claim all the 9+ million subs, but how many people are really still playing from the launch of the game?

"Account Created: 11 February 05 00:11 CET"Thats 11 minutes after the servers opened here in EU. And it's still my main account, even though I have more now.

I wouldn't make any of the lists, since I have been playing for over two years, but have had three breaks of 2-4 weeks when I closed the account because I wouldn't be able to play (vacation, moving, vacation).Where would you put accounts like that? ^^
