Star Wars: The Old Republic – Blizzard Feeling Disturbance in the Force?

Star Wars: The Old Republic – Blizzard Feeling Disturbance in the Force?Yesterday, as you probably know, Star Wars: The Old Republic was finally and officially launched. The early access allowed many players to start as long as a week before the official launch (and many are said to reach the level cap in such a short time), still the swarm of players attacking Bioware servers is almost unprecedented. With as many 200 servers, players are to spend up to 2 hours (!!) waiting in a line to login! Bioware is saying they’re treating the problem very seriously, but can’t guarantee the lack of lines just yet. To try and control the flow of new players the sales of SW:TOR at Origin were ceased for some time. With such an influx of players, would Star Wars: The Old Republic be a real competitor for World of Warcraft?

BountyHunterPowertech When the amount of SW:TOR servers were 140, some analyst guy from Cowen & Company assessed the measure of server load and claimed that the number of players is already past one million, and probably is reaching 1,5 million players. He also predicts that in the coming year Star Wars: The Old Republic will reach as many as 2 million subscribers. For a “free to play” game it might be a normal situation when such a big number of players is coming to see what’s up, for a “pay to play” each person means a copy sold. At this point it’s unknown if all these hordes of players will stay and subscribe, or will get disappointed and leave after a couple of months like it happened to RIFT. Whatever happens, Bioware is getting its hands on a lot of income about right now.

Comparing to 10 million World of Warcraft fans – maybe not, but let’s not forget that SW:TOR is reaching only to Western auditory right now. Most of its servers are based in USA, with the rest being distributed around Europe. If to count only the WoW players from these regions only, the number of subscriptions is around 4-4,5 millions. And now things are looking a lot different, aren’t they? 4 millions of elves and taurens comparing to 2 millions of jedi and sith is a whole new story. I think Blizzard might be feeling disturbance in the Force right now.
