    Everyone? You mean 2.7M people. Not everyone goes to WoW forums and fansites. Heck most people I've met in WoW don't even know what MMO-Champion is...

    Stating the amount of subs is so pointless it's crazy especially when thinking about friends I've got complaining about dead realms, makes you wonder how many of the subs are actually still playing...

    In the real world that makes me a genius.

    Also another question and maybe a silly one but if wow has 8mil players and 2.7 mil bought the expansion what about the other 5.3mil?
    Or does WoW eu and US only count 2.7 players out of the 8mil?
    The 2.7mil also means the physical copies included? so without that its 2mil digital sold?

    Well China has had shorter expansion intervals because its always been behind the west by a long way. Now they have pretty much caught up to us which means blizzard will need to provide content otherwise the Chinese will feel the same pain the west have with content delays.

    Very impressive figures for a game that is almost 8 years old. Sure it is less than at peak but still damn respectable. WoW is currently not dying. Bleeding perhaps but is likely to live a few years more at least!

    Happy to hear they are doing well on numbers. I did highly expect the numbers to bounce back up after the very very long Dragon soul patch, but what I want to see is how this expansion does 3-6 months later. I will have my sub cancelled after my contract is ended and I did not buy MOP, because I want to see how well Blizzard does in maintaining their game on issues like, balance, raid content, and dungeon content. Cata was nothing but broken promises, so I want to see if they have turned it around in MoP before I put money into it.

    I would like to see the US + EU numbers.
    Pretty sure there are only so many copies sold because of the growing markets in Asia.... i dont really know but lets say Wotlk was sold 2,2mio times in EU+US and 600k times in Asia. For MoP the numbers should look something like 1,5mio in EU+US and 1,2mio in Asia.

    Moreover there are a lot of people with multiple accounts who have to buy mop multiple times too.

    Can argue that the sales are poor any way you want. 1 million people came back to play MoP. That's 1/3 of the loss gained back. Once word spreads that MoP is actually good than people will try it out and realize the pandas aren't so bad little creatures.

    There aren't really any glaring issues that would cause subscribers to leave in the masses. If they are smart they will make reputation account wide though. Don't know how they missed that one.

    Ah yeah the Asia argument. Can't forget to discredit the numbers in every way possible by bringing up Asia. What does it matter? It's World of Warcraft not EU/US of Warcraft.

    Mate... you do realize that even if WoW drops to 1M players, it won't be considered dead right? SWTOR has around 500k subs and it's still kicking. Atleast that was the number I read about last time.

    Pessimists will always be pessimists.

    Well, welcome back those who joined or came back to WoW.

    To be fair, you chose a super conservative number and gave yourself a super conservative time frame in which to accomplish it. 2 million people in six months is in line with losses before, so don't think you're being prophetic or unique. If anything, you either need a bigger number or a smaller number to warrant quoting.

    Let's say you're wrong. Just a thought. What happens then?

    Still very rarely, but it has nothing to do with WoW

    It will take ages for WoW to get to that point.

    It sold for less than the previous two expansions, so yes, it is dying.

    Only 10 million after the release of a whole new expansion? I expected a lot more. My bet is that it's going to proceed in dropping as seen before, and that we will be bellow 9 million by January... Not saying I'm unhappy with the game, I love this expansion so far, but if history is any indication along with these news, it doesn't look very good.
