MMORPG Market Share

To say that I'm not in tune with the MMORPG market would be something of an understatement. I think I played the original EQ for 6 weeks to 2 months. Since then I've had people invite me to play various MMOs but frankly, the main expense of an MMO is time and believe it or not, I don't have a lot.

OK, we all know that's a BIG lie. So suffice to say that the MMO experience doesn't appeal to me.

Still, I heard about a site that had some accurate data on MMO subscriber bases and was very surprised at the results. EQ is kind of a small player and I had no idea HOW dominate World of Warcraft was.

Here are the totals, but go visit the site, because he has a lot of cool info if you are curious:

World of Warcraft 52.9%
Lineage 12.o%
Lineage II 10.4%
Runescape 6.3%
Final Fantasy XI 4.0%
EQ 1.6%
EQ II 1.4%
Star Wars 1.4%
City of Heroes 1.3%
Ultima Online 1.1%
Eve Online 1.0%
Dark Age of Camelot 1.0%
Toontown Online 0.9%
D&D Online 0.7%
Doofus 0.6%
All Others 3.3%
