wtf is westward journey online?
Westward Journey is a chinese free mmo. It's kinda hard to compare popular free mmo's to popular paid mmo's. It's like saying facebook totally beats wow in subscribers.
It uses the same payment system over half of wow subscribers use, is that good enough? Or is wow 'free' in china too?
Seriously, go dig in netease's sec-filed financials and show me where they are running their mmo for free.
If people want to talk about wow being the biggest 'western' mmo with maybe 4~MILLION subscribers, that is fine, it is more than twice as large as any competitor, but most folks like to include the china subs and make the number substantially bigger (the famous 10.2m number) and only compare it to western mmo's.

Hmm , anyone know when the next report is ? Curious to see the numbers. =D
Its hilarious to me that all the Blizzard fans think this is some type of victory...
Victory? Victory, you say? Master Obi-Wan, not victory...
This is a BAD thing for you as a player. It means that Blizzard will think they are doing things RIGHT, and they will continue to treat you, their customers, as they have been. If subs had continued to drop, maybe they would have realized how bad of a company they are becoming and made an effort to fix things.
WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

Say no to necrophilia, let this thread slink back into limbo please, it earned it's eternal rest after so much flaming.

Well, at the time of that announcement it drop in subs stopped and stabilized at 10.2 miljon.
We have now closed Q2 2012. I expect this month the new numbers.... and I'm afraid that this time around they can't claim that it is still stable.
Does anyone know when Blizzard will publish those numbers?
Hey all just wanted to chime in on this,
Nor hate or fanboyism will be posted from my response but just wanted to say although i love WoW i have left the game and the only reason why I'm still a paid subscriber is because of the Annual pass which ends up in the end of October or November cant remember. So to sit here and say that this game is dead or not doesn't really matter cause it never will be so the haters gotta stop hating. I am curious to see how many subscribers they may lose from Q4 2012 because of all the Annual pass holders in that time frame that may be waiting for it to end. Assuming Blizzard is Smart MoP will be out in October to counter that number of subs that may leave this game. The reason why i left the game has nothing to do with with Pandas or crap like that like others are saying, rather a staleness that was left within my guild when LFR came out and the inability to form 10 man raids and such. I just felt like the social activity of learning mechanics with a core group left and handing out gear like i was going out trick-or-treating bothered me. That's just my take on the game......and please don't hate on me just my opinion
It's also highly unlikely that the number of subs will drop until Q1 2013, because... Christmas and Blizzard's marketing. And when it's getting close to Q1 2013, we can expect the next major content patch to be dropping, to stymie any loss of subs.
