Although the fanboism is pretty thick in here I will say that it seemed unfortunate that regardless of the quality of patch or whatever people want to use to blame the supposed decline of subscriptions that it is unfortunate that with the scroll of res boons that the numbers actually didn't go up at all. Would this represent then an unsuccessful promotion or just a method to maintain player base size?
I've tried other mmos (Rift, SWTOR, GW2)...none won me over enough to take WoW's place.
Sorry, you'll just gotta accept that people speak with their wallets here. In the end most people play games they feel attracted to, if SWTOR, Rift and soon Tera and GW2 don't take the cake, then that means people simply aren't as attracted to them as to WoW.
WoW isn't dying, that shits been dead since the Lich King died. Anyway I feel bad for the 10.2 Millionz subs who are being suckered into this game. WoW is now like new Adam Sandler movies that come out.
(in case you didn't know they're cheap sleazy and suck ass)

I'm fascinated that people still care either way.
Like the game? Play it.
Don't like the game? Don't play it.... and then run to the forums and tell everyone that what they enjoy is wrong/stupid
Have a nice day.
Just skimmed over the 1st 4-5 pages of this thread, and I found it strange that ppl were, in a nutshell, putting down haters of WoW, even though I didn't notice any 'haters'.
This whole 'fanboy' thing is absolutely childish IMO. If someone questions the integrity of WoW in any way, they are 'lynched' by these blinkered fans of the game.
I started WoW mid TBC and was blown away, right from my Taurens 1st ever run up to Thunder Bluff and beyond, fantastic gaming experience I won't forget. I unsubbed to play SWToR but will come back for MoP. At the end of the day, they're just video games, thats all. It's ok to like and play other games.
I do think Blizzard did count on getting people hyped up and dropped the AP at Blizzcon to capitalize on the hype. If I based a guess off these forums, I'd say maybe 10-15% regret getting the AP. I don't know that it's because of the money per se, but they just realized that they made a Hype buy and now that the Hype has wore off, they wanted to quit and they feel silly. Of course, no one wants to admit they bouhgt out of impulse without thinking, that would require them to admit they weren't gods. And everyone on the internet is a super smart god-like being.
The game wasn't more challenging before, anyone saying that boss mechanics were harder or that pvp was harder back in the days need to look back and maybe even read about old bosses. Time consuming? Yes. Bugged? Yes. Few quality-of-life features? Yes indeed. Back then an epic mount and one or 2 pieces of epic gear was considered the height of progression and pro. Today, full Heroic gear set, 100% Heroic drops/heroic titles and the highest PVP titles and elite gear/highest rating is what counts.
Yeah, I have inside information, namely 2 brothers that were with this game from the start, clearing everything in raid content from MC/Onyxia's Lair up to Firelands of Cata.
Saying that the game is too easy and then not excell in the areas where it's challenging, ain't very productive.
Good to hear, for the record I am one AP holder who doesn't regret it and would have been subscribed anyway, I also manage to play other games as well. I'm sure many AP holders feel the same so the unfair argument is kind of silly. (besides the fact that regret or not, they still paid.
