Yes and there are games that are also very good design wise and have or had large communities also. So how does this help your point?
Also, is it really strange, Jubeh. Is it? I mean you think CoD has some of the shittest MP, so clearly it's not as strange as you make it out to be.
I dont think this is a response to anything I said and I dont disagree
also, number of players does not dictate whether or not a game has "social aspects". 12 million people is not a big deal when the height of social interaction is trading, killing mobs and chatting. Facebook has 845 million users, but it is quite easily the lowest form of social interaction available. MMO's often don't give players reasons to interact with more than a dozen significant people. For a game with 12 million users, that's not very good.
