So we see growth this quarter, Q4 2012 will likely be the real show in how well MoP release content holds (and possibly 5.1, since it's due on the PTR soon). If they keep rolling new content out quickly and continue with their philosophy of new content for all levels of skill, it'd be a strong argument that they learned from what was largely a failed experiment with Cata.
Even if WoW dropped to 3 million subs it wouldn't be dead because that is more subs than any other mmo has.

Honestly Blizzard kept all of their promises for the launch of Mists except for I think, what, the Valor Point Upgrade for Gear?
I figured 5.1 may drop by December. They're actually doing their best to push content out faster.
But, yeah, that wouldn't make you petty:P
As far as reporting subscription numbers to its shareholders, while these numbers are interesting the real numbers are Blizzard's revenue, costs and net earnings. The money is what is most important. In fact, as we all know, Blizzard has amazing earnings. That's what shareholders want to know about.

It's strange to me that 10 million people subscribe while only 3 million play MoP.
You can't say Blizzard is a healthy company though. They never have the resources for anything.
