Yeah I have to throw the BS flag on one percent of the pop being admiral unless that statement was like a week and a half ago.

Sounds awfully convenient to me.

How do afford your Dorritoes and Mountain Dew when none of you have jobs?

Well, I see a few different scenarios here:

1. That interview was a week or more old.

2. He meant 1% were maxed out, not just RA

3. That figure Cryptic gave about 1 million accounts was actual subscriptions and not just the number of registered users

4. Cryptic bent the truth to serve them (hope that's not the one)

5. 1% was a typo if the interview was written, or a speech error if it was a live interview

I bet they're including the gold spammers in the calculations.

Unless your job requires you to work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, its all too possible to reach Admiral without even trying. Even THEN its a possibility.

how so... a computer interface is a computer interface. it would just be a job or rolling back the patches and changing the IP, DNS, and gateway.

They probably counted alts and we all have a ton of lowbie alts.

They probably counted the massive amount of banned spam accounts, the trial accounts, the people who quit already, etc.

Wait. Cryptic is claiming only 1% of the population is at max level? Are they saying that 1% of all characters made are at max level? Are they including all people who canceled their account/stopped playing while their 1 month runs out?

There is no way only 1% of active players are at max level. You could hit max level sneezing.
