MMOBux's interview.

MMOBux has conducted an interview with me. The interview talks about GFC ties and examining the relationship between ArenaNet and GFCs. You will also get to know about me a little more. Also, I do a little follow-up section about the comments and reception of my articles.

The interview can be read here

Until next time.

Here is a thing i find insanely interesting!

"Had anyone in ArenaNet ever estimated the population of gold farmers? What % of Guild Wars accounts are gold farmers? How many accounts did a big gold farming companies usually have? What about the small ones?

The MMO average of the gold farming population is around 5%, although it could vary wildly from each MMO. It all depends on its ability to be farmed, botting detection, and company's business model etc. It is impossible to calculate the specific number, so I will use this average as a basis. Guild Wars has sold "over 4 million". 4,000,000 x 5% = 200,000"
[/end quote]

We were made to believe that GW sold around 4 million copies of the game. Which should translate that there are fewer accounts - since a lot of accounts consist of 3 games (currently! That includes C1, Factions, C3). AND let's not forget that multiple users have multiple accounts (again with multiple games!)! So unless we are mistaken in our basic understanding and the 4 mil are really ACCOUNTS (not games sold!) then the offered number of 200k might be just "slightly" off!

Nonetheless - keep up the good work!
After quitting GW this is the best thing I came across!
Or as my hero Homer said:
The Simpsons - Episode: The Computer Wore Menace Shoes
[Outside the Kwik-E-Mart, Nelson approaches Homer.]

Nelson: Hey, Mr. "X", I've got a tip for you. They're dissecting frozen hobos in Science class. And I've got the bindles to prove it.
[holds up some empty bindles]
Homer: Real news is great, son, But I'm getting a thousand hits an hour with Grade-A bullplop.

I'm lovin' it!
(I just don't buy it!)
