I have done some calculations a while ago. And I figured out that they make about $1,800,000,000 (1 Billion 800 Million Dollars) a year off of WoW. And that's not including the money they get from the actual game, that's just how much they accumulate from the 15 bucks a month they get. I also calculated that from 10 million players. I am pretty sure it's somewhere over 11 million now.

Yeah, I know. I mean, they don't keep all of that money, but they still probably have tons after they are done.

Yes. And I know first-hand. Topic.

@Xavier, yeah... It's a sad thing really when you read stories on WoW addicts. :/

Yeah, but as you might have said, they use lots of them to pay their developers, GM's and other.

But i know, it's CrAzY!

I quit once I realized it was consuming my life. My friends want me to play with them on a free private server but I just refuse to go back to it. Its not worth it.

Yeah, I know. Like that one kid who jumped out a window and died because he couldn't join a guild or something. :? Messed up...

They probably use some of that money for server maintenance and marketing/advertising, as well. Still, that would be a lot left over.
