I think we all know how digital eat retail's cake sales wise in PC market, but 200k out of 3M is really low.

I've enjoyed it so far; they've merged the servers well enough now that the game always feels alive and full of people.

They didn't merge servers. They have you hop around between servers and shard servers. Its quite a mess actually. Yeah, it looks alive cause you see other players, but theres no sense of community as you won't see them again.

"Breaking down retail sales by region, the game sold best in the US with 96,849 units sold (46%), compared to 85,469 units sold in Europe (1%)." That 1% bit seems a tad off.
