@zweitblom The persecution complex comes from web forums. Mac gamers are constantly berated and told to get a windows box, or to partition their harddrive. It's pretty funny though considering all the money Steam/Valve has invested in mac gaming. They would not have done what they did if they thought mac gaming had no future. Also, @quickshiv, the numbers you quote are largely irrelevant. THe dedication from the mac community in WoW and EVE are like none other. In almost every forum ever, you have someone posting things like "I just got a mac, are there any cool games?" And the first post is usually "Try WoW!" or "EvE has sweet graphics! Give it a go!" Those games are very important to mac gaming and both have a significant portion of mac gamers, all of whom contribute heavily to the subscription base. Like I said, My argument is atypical enough that windows fanboys will tear it apart and use out of context numbers, but that won't change the truth behind it. Mac users should be heavily considered when coming up with a new MMO and trying to get it to "stick". There aren't that many good, AAA mac games out there, and the few one's that do exist are highly prized. Blizzard knows this., and its why they'll always have the fiscal upperhand compared to its windows only competitors.
