    Number of D2 players

    Anyone have any idea how many people play D2?

    More specifically, how many active accounts there are in each realm (West, East, Europe, Asia)... How many characters and games are active at once on each realm.

    Also, how have these numbers changed since D2 first came out, then with the intro of the expansion, and now...

    less than 10 million for sure.

    (i think if WoW was a country, it would have more people than france. someone confirm that?)

    -------

    as for d2... at peak... i say around ~100 games public, probably x3 as much private (though 1 player), and roughly 2k players on useast both lad and nonlad.

    just a feel, absolutely not based on official data

    i believe thats europe, considering ther are 4 realms(i think) i would 4-fold that number, probably somewhere between 200k peeps playing d2
    i think on the back of the diablo box it says 7 million copies were sold, not saying that many people are playing it but its still quite a number
    also many diablo players switched to WoW. i would guestimate around 1.5 million people played when it was new
    tell me if im horribly wrong :p

    dont forget that a ton of these "people" playing are bots owned by just a handful of people that have tons running at once.

    Yeah, my dad, my three brothers and my grandmother are running a couple hundred bots each.
    The rest of us go legit.
