The latest expansion to World of Warcraft has launched, with Warlords of Draenor increasing the subscriber base of Blizzard's MMORPG, even amongst the various server problems the game has experienced.
Blizzard sent out a press release earlier today, announcing that the Warlords of Draenor expansion had sold over 3.3 million copies in its first 24 hours alone, pushing the total World of Warcraft subscriber base past 10 million. Before this, the expansion base of WoW had slipped to 6.8 million, but as the expansion release got closer, the subscriber base began to climb back up.
The previous expansion, Mists of Pandaria, had the subscriber base hit over 10 million, with both expansion boosts to its subscriber base down from the peak of 12 million back in 2010.
