As far as these new unique players, I wonder how many of those are just gold farmers?
Can't be that many. Gold farmers aren't going to sell to each other. If no one bought any gold (if all were farmers), there'd be no market and they'd stop trying. Out of the 1 million unique players per day, my guess is no more than a few percent. Thats still way too high, don't get me wrong. But gold farmers are nowhere close to a majority of players.

I think that shows very clearly what is shouted about on game forums doesn't translate into reality at all.
I don't think thats what it shows. I think it shows that they could have done far far more sales if they had a little more sense about how they made the game.
