"but I'm guessing that we've just seen that massive bug list discussed last week reduced by one."You appear to have a misunderstanding of the number on that list. That number is all bugs, past and present. It includes the fixed bugs. It's not 180K active bugs, that's total bugs that have ever been tracked in the game.

I believe they said they were 'tracking' 180,000, not that they 'had' tracked that many. Unless I'm wrong.

You're wrong. The quote given in the original article showed that the number related to *all* bugs, fixed or not.

No the article if I remember correctly said they were currently tracking 180k bugs."Blizzard has revealed a rather astonishing figure for its ludicrously successful MMO, revealing that its database has around 180,000 glitches that are in some stage of repair. If you don't understand numbers, suffice it to say that WoW has a lot of bugs being ironed out."

They have a database with 180 000 bugs, both fixed and not. It's important to keep track of things you have already fixed because those bugs can rear their ugly heads later when new mechanics are implemented and can serve as inspiration on how to fix new bugs.Phasing was originally the solution to one of those bugs, and see where they have taken that idea now!
