2.7 million, so just below WOTLK,

Of course I actually read it and realize that is the first week, not including China on Oct 2nd. So that number is not all that hot, considering wotlk was 2.8 million in one day.

Don't forget that with MoP it is impossible to count "the first day" because many of the copies sold prior to MoP's release, and Wrath didn't have digital sales that I know of, so of course everyone rushed out to get it and/or pre-ordered.

Many people had already purchased MoP in the preceding days/weeks.

I think "The First Month" is a better gauge; we should wait until 10/25 before we make any real judgments.

After how bad Cataclysm failed to deliver on endgame material, a lot of players were probably going "meh, I'll wait until I hear from my friends before I make up my mind".

A month would give them time to do that.
