Wired On World of Warcraft Growing Pains
10:39 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Fans of Blizzard's recent MMORPG smash World of Warcraft may be interested in checking out an article recently published on Wired.com. The article covers the recent growing pains the game has experienced, as it received many more users than Blizzard expected. Here's a snippet from the article:

In the weeks after its late-November launch, Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft quickly became one of the biggest successes in the history of massively multiplayer online games. It quickly surpassed 600,000 sales, and more than 200,000 concurrent users, numbers most MMO publishers would salivate over.

But no one knew how quickly World of Warcraft would take off, and the downside to such instant success was that the game's servers rapidly got overwhelmed, leading to server shutdowns and delays.
