    If you are not playing wow, why are you reading a wow website?
    I wanna go back to my trainer and learn a new spell in the next expansion! And we all need to be able to fly from day 1 ! (And fly over the Exodar and Silvermoon on our own mounts!)

    I doubt there is much difference between the 1st day and 1st week numbers, and I don't think the difference is very meaningful.

    Find it funny how still people believe (not including trolls) that thats a bad number.
    Guess people just don't have a clue.
    The start seems like its gonna be my favourite expansion since TBC, so now we just wait and see how fast they can bump the content out or will they once again fail us with slow patching.

    I don't play WoW, yet I still come on this website. I don't play my Xbox, but I still like to keep updated on Xbox news.

    What's the problem?

    But... all the hype convinced me that WoW will be dead next week! It can't be!

    :P

    That is pretty normal. For example cataclysm sold about 4.7 millions copies in the first month while around that time the subscriptions peaked at around 12 millions.

    Which you knew in advance?
    Arguing with a troll is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what you do or say, he will just knock over the pieces, take a shit on the board and strut around like he won the whole damn thing.

    Yes for children with no lives. No working adults can squeeze in 12 hours A WEEK.

    Peak was in WotLK and started to decline around the time between ICC and Cata.

    Ugh! But that's exactly the reason. It sold less than Cata because people don't trust Blizz enought in order to buy another expansion day 1. Do you really think everyone keep up with MoP vids and gameplay vids?

    If MoP does better than Cata the next expansion will get more sells.

    Well sure, but everyone was praising it so much, i would have thought all the positiveness of the WoW players would have landed a lot better.

    Down below 8million within 6months, my prediction. Can't wait to quote this in six months time.

    lol you misread what he said, 12 hours to level in total from 80 - 85.

    Anyways it's because around 60% of the subs in is China which don't by expansions.

    yeah, but it's not surprising because MoP got so much hate and Cata was just bad, many didn't even bother with MoP. But the cool thing is that they are now seeing the positive feedback and are coming back. I have 5 friends back from GW2 already. It's a great x-pac, and soon more people will notice. The numbers are fantastic, considering the hate and bad press. And this doesn't even include the chinese and korean players. I'm sure the numbers will be even better by the end of the month.
