    I'd say they'd gain some subs if anything, lots of people cancelled during Cata due to so long of just DS, as well as D3/GW2 launches. I'd wager lots of those people will come back for MoP.

    And, hopefully, you have learned the correct speeling.

    Given how much better MoP looks compared to Cataclysm, and as someone who was unsubbed for most of Cata and who just took a 6 months sub for MoP (something I did for the last time during Wotlk), I think MoP will end with more subs than we have right now.
    I'd say MoP will gain ~1,5 million subs, so just above 10 millions.

    Why even start this thread? We'll probably just change our minds by the time we're reading the second page.

    May I say that I think this thread is slightly biased?

    A better question/poll is probably what the subscription base will be towards the end of MoP. I believe, from what I saw in the Beta, that the sub base will larger than it is today.

    Why do people care how many subscribers they lose, im still going to play this game when there is 5 million subs or less, like i give a shit if people are all angsty over how the game is going and if they like it, go play the next WoW killer.

I think modest decline will be normal.

    How much loss will really depend on the later patches.

    If the game ends up like Cataclysm with weaker and briefer content patches, the losses might be more significant as even more established players get bored and apathetic and take off.

    But if the game can keep up the quality and amount of content that we're getting in the expansion launch, I think it will slow sub losses dramatically. We saw big drop offs in Cataclysm because there really wasn't enough to do end-game and the game can no longer sustain itself on novelty alone, like it did in classic. I'd like to think Blizzard learned from Cataclysm and that we will be getting more content and larger raids.
    I really agree with this.

    I put less than 500,000 as being optimistic. Some people will definitely quit, but hopefully Blizz will move forward from Cata's downfall. They have some great starts already with Challenge Modes. Let's hope they keep running with ideas like that.

    Whoever voted for 0 people is wrong because as soon as I am 90 and have tried the raids a few times I am letting my account close when my annual pass is up. If I didn't fall for the annual pass I wouldn't probably even play MoP. Between work full time and grad school, I don't have much free time and would rather play GW2 and relax on the couch watching TV.

    You should stick it to blizzard and not even buy the expansion then. Why be out $70 when you could just be out $30.

    Subs will go back up to 10.5-11m, at least at first. Then slowly go back down, then back up if they keep delivering content instead of keeping us on a single 8 boss raid for a year.

    People are voting 0 because this is a stupid poll that deserves a stupid answer.

    This is exactly how i feel. I think wow will have a resurgence do to how awesome MoP will be!

    Well honestly the poll is not really nessicary to create! I mean most MMO's today have 1million of less subs so even if WoW drops by 3 million its still not even close to dying!

    This poll and post is pretty biased. You are making a huge assumption based off something that has nothing to do with MoP. In my opinion you should have made an option to vote for gained subs.

    I think the OP is just being realistic. Its pretty delusional to think WoW will gain subscriptions at this point.

    I entirely agree with this statement and I too voted 0. I think the people who weren't part of the beta are going to be totally blown away. All I can say is....it's awesome! And hurry up midnight!!!!

    I think they're going to see rapid decline in China, and some decline in the west. So I went with 2-3M, and that may be optimistic.
