<a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/temp/activity-2008-01.htm'><img src='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/temp/activity-2008-01_files/image001.gif' width='300' height='200'></a>

It's that time of the month again and we have calculated the January concurrency numbers provided by the <a href='http://www.warcraftrealms.com/censusplus.php'>CensusPlus</a> UI Addon.

I guess this ole girl still has quite a bit of life left in her? Concurrency numbers are up quite dramatically in January, both in EU and US. This is likely attributed to the Christmas holidays and many people receiving WoW as presents, although this could be also due to continued interest in the changes that have come since patch 2.3.

As many of us experienced right after Christmas, queue's began to be the norm on many servers during prime time hours. Even my home server of Destromath is still experiencing nightly queues after free transfer offers.

I have little doubt that sometime during the month of January that Blizzard broke 1M concurrent players at some point in time. The average for all of January during primetime nearly hit 940K concurrent users so I would be willing to bet that at some point the 1M mark was hit.

At any rate, if last year is any indicator, we may see a slight increase for February, and then start seeing an expected decline until at least patch 2.4 hits, and ultimately WotLK.

In other news, tickets have been assigned for January for our monthly drawing and I will draw the winning numbers shortly! Don't know about our monthly drawing? Check out how easy it is to enter and have your shot at $100 prizes!

Did you notify Rollie that you held one of the winning tickets? If not than your prize went back into the pool for the drawing for the next month. Rollie is really quick about getting you your prizes once you claim yourself a winner.

Yep.. the same day.
We exchanged some emails. than i heard nothing anymore till the end of jan when i emailed him again. than he told me that he always purchased the certificates at the start of the month, so when on feb 7 or so i still didn't hear anything i mailed again.. but no response so far Sad

I wonder what's up.

He always comes through in the end. I won last year, and got my certificate towards the end of the next month.

Time Cards, that's a good idea!

I got the Gold Edition DVD set of Twin Peaks with mine - still some money left over...
