Well, WC3 sold about 3 million units. Warcraft has around 10 million subs. WC3 sold more than WC1 and 2 (and let's be honest, neither were really very good) so there's at least 7 million players who haven't played the RTS games. Probably more, assuming that many of the RTS players haven't played, or used to play and cancelled, the MMO.

While that's true, knowing the lore and playing the first 3 games aren't mutually inclusive. A lot of people played WC3, but even if you started with WoW it's still easy enough to get all of the lore on the game.

I played Orcs & Human, and WCIII with its xpac in the past and WoW since late 2005. I didn't sadly play WCII and therefore I am a bit weak on Second War lore. I would've loved to expand more on characters like Turalyon, Alleriya and Trollbane though hence "sadly".

I started with Warcraft II Tides of Darkness though I later bought Orcs & Humans which was almost unplayable by comparison. I got into WC3 after playing WoW though.

Even when i played start of TBC, i often was explaining "story" behind iconic places, like stratholme stromgarde and such, to people i was partying up with. So i would think even back then there were a lot of clueless people. Even more now, i bet...
