    Curious if anyone did this

    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.
    "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...

    20 million in July? For a game I have never heard of? What the fuck. That can't be true.

    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.

    The difference is that Silkroad developers don't lie about their users and don't say that every bot is a unique user, while as far as I can see, Wizard101 developers do.

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

    Maybe its full of "farmville gamers" or people who register and play once and never come back.

    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. No one i know have even heard 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.
