Cata rode on the hugely successful coat-tails of WotLK, of course it woulda sold huge on the first day. it shows how popular WotLK was.
MoP rode on the hugely disappointing coat-tails of Cata. everything considering, the numbers look good.
Nice number. It's selling more and more. Several my friends just bought it today. So numbers are increasing.
And I'm happy to see that sub number increased 10kk+ ^_^ Go, go Blizz! we need 12kk+!
But that's fine though. Who cares what it sells? I don't care about agit prop for mop or against mop. In your speech or in other dudes here. The expansion is good I agree I'm having fun some big things suck atm but I'll probably be grabbing another month. Midterms next week then another week off. If i see no progression on the things that bug me well I'm out bro. I'm sure that doesn't matter one bit to you but it should I hope matter to Blizzard. I guess that's naive I'm sorry. However these are things I think or I hope at any rate they will look into and they've said they are. Let's put it diplomatically then. I'm an open minded skeptic.
This is good for wow, here's hoping blizz don't drop the ball again on patches. a decent patch every 4 months is great and maximum time between content should never exceed 6 months for a sub-based game. Hope they don't pull a ZA/ZG on people again either.
I'm not surprised about 2.7 million. Cata was terrible, that xpac made me quit half way through vowing never to return. I'm sure many others (looking at the loss of subs during that expansion) would of had their WoW experrience forever ruined.
But if you look on the bright side for the remaining people that play WoW, blizzard will see this as a warning. If they don't release content faster to keep the current (but diminishing) player base happy they will continue to lose subs.
These number also show roughly the enormous amount of people in china that play this game. I still think that is why they decided to go with the panda/chinese style theme to begin with. Why not appease their largest player base.
"you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.

Now we just wait, and see if subs fall back again like cata did
MoP sure did deliver a lot more fun the cata did.
around this time in cata i was pretty much exalted with all factions (beside tol bard one) and started with the new vanilla world, since except raiding and random dungs. i didnt have that much else to do.
in MoP, im doing dailies/raiding and random dungs atm. i still havent finished questing completely (1 zone left) but thats cause i dnt have much time for it. i havent done much scenario's which i wanna do more since they were actually quite fun.
and i also wanna start doing the pet battle thing, which i only did 1 night and got a pet too level 3.
comparing that too each other, makes MoP more fun at the start. i just hope blizzard doesnt mess up agian like they did in cata and make it worse and worse over the expansion. and this might become the best expac i played so far. and very succesfull
See just how many times someone point at a design decision he doesn't like, and has his argument ignored through clichés like "rose-tinted glasses", "you're just burned out" and so on.
Sometimes it's true, most of the time it's just a way to ignore the argument made.
Hmm comparing this to Wotlk, Cata, and BC sales it is kinda disappointing. Blizzard intentionally made it sound good by announcing sales world wide rather than just USA, Europe and others like they did before. I personally think the Venturebeat guy was correct sales probably barely peeked above 1 million in the USA.
By these numbers I can say that WoW is the best video game of all time. Every other game is a piece of crap compared with God's gift to mankind: World of Warcraft!
