MMOCrunch has started a monthly feature
based on data from new site VOIG
that shows subscription details for various different MMOs. What that boils down to is that they'll be reporting each month on the most subscribed-to games, position changes in the rankings, and basically which company gets bragging rights for that month.
The first report examines the data for October this year. The top 5 MMOs by subscription in October were World of Warcraft
with 26.03% (surprise!), Second Life
with 18.86%, Guild Wars
at 12.6%, Knight Online
with 11.9%, and Dofus
on 9.73%. WoW, SL
and Guild Wars
I could probably have given you, but I had not realized that Knight Online
were so popular.
Other interesting tidbits: Lord of the Rings Online
hit 300,000 subscriptions, EVE Online
overtook EverQuest II
grew a little, but still isn't doing too well. Assuming that the VOIG data is reasonably accurate (something that MMOCrunch themselves say they wanted to be sure of, and watched the site for a few months first before running the article) this should be an interesting feature to watch in coming months.
