Yeah, it's crazy the amount of people rolling Palanoobs.
I'd say 9/10 of the other players I see are Pallys.

I'm one of those people that bought it in the first 24 hours.
Great sales for Blizzard. With it's built-in audience of 8 Million worldwide, the Burning Crusade was always going to be a huge success, but not necessarily this quickly... them's crazy numbers.
I wonder how many they're clocked at now, over a week later.

Yeah, casual games' sells are in the sky while great games with depth are nowhere near that... :roll: But publshers want quick money and I don't think that'll change soon. :(
