The only trick was giving old players free level 80s. Annual Pass is a nice bargain.

Let's guess... how long until the anti-WoW fanboys claim that Blizz lied about their numbers?
PEPE SILVA, PEPE SILVA
So 10.2 million people are just cool with Dragon Soul since December and easily going into August lol
What has been made by QQ can be unmade by QQ!!!
I would call a steady subscription after Star Wars the Old Republic and the expansion lull a COMPLETE "win".
Besides, it's you guys flagging 10 and 15 million subscribers as something huge, or using it as an argument for why wow is a good game. I'm pretty sure that twilight is NOT better than most other movies, regardless of how much money it made or how many people saw it. Hell, by that measure, Avatar is the best movie ever made, and it's not fair to compare it to movies that don't charge you 50% extra for the glasses, or movies that are free to watch.
Fact remains that people are cheering over wow not losing subs, and seem to forget that it has not been the biggest game in the world, or even 2nd biggest game in the world for years.
no one read that image? they mention a new free to play game... I havnt heard that before..
I can't believe the nay sayers.
The BIGGEST challenge ever for WOW was launched back in Dec 2011.
And WOW didn't massively lost subscriptions like the "industry analists" predicted.
Some said that the launch of SW TOR alone would add another 1.5 to 2 million losses ON TOP of it all.
It didn't happen: because the challenger was WAY below the quality WOW players are used to - as always - I might say...
Simple as that.
^For those of you who do think the quality of gaming experience is measured solely by number of players, I suggest you check out Super Mario Bros. and Kinect Adventures.
I've never undertood such a fascination for the number of people playing instead of discussing its quality. Justin Bieber is popular, is Justin Bieber producing quality music?
