* They specify that FFXI currently has 500k+ paying subscribers (which, I’m fairly certain, puts them ahead of every non-Asian MMO).
* 42% of their customer base hasn’t made it beyond level 10.
* 34% of all characters are level 1 mules.
What isn’t discussed is the breakdown between Japan and the US, or between PS2 and PC logins. Still, fairly interesting stuff.
