Worldwide WoW

Having been with this game since the beginning, it is incredible to realize how many people are still just joining WoW. Check out these stats from Blizzard Press Releases:

Lately it seems as though every month another 500,000 players join. I'm quoting the press releases here; though there are some who would say it literally feels like 500,000 players have just joined on their server alone.

Updated 11/5/2007 to add new Press Releases. Blizzard also removed some of the old Press Releases so I tried to find some replacement links (Cached Google Pages or links).
