    Note: Annual passers are STILL on subscription whether or not they are playing MoP. I expect the numbers to go down a fair amount when November rolls around.

    PS: Welcome back Boubouille. This was your first news post since a long time if I'm not mistaken.
    Where did I say it's dead? I agreed with the DYING part, huge difference... mate.
    An Apple fanboy called me a retard.
    In the real world that makes me a genius.

    No, it's not. is SWTOR dead? Is Everquest dead lol? Wake up and stop hating on games just because you're not playing them anymore.

    Why do the first pages of these kind of threads always have to be spammed with just ''Bizzard is amazing!!! you never fail!!'' or ''MoP is the best expansion ever!!!''

    The sales are still higher than I expected, I thought it would be around 2.1 million. But the 1 million extra subs is not really that much, they already lost more subs once in a single quarter. From this point, I don't think we'll see the subs rising any soon.

    ....In that case every game is dying slowly every day because every day less people play it. When do you consider a game dead then? When it reaches 0 subs? Cause I assure you that ain't happening unless they close the servers.

    So let's see, SWTOR one of the most recent "wow killers" highly acclaimed by press and people managed to sell around 2M-2.5M within the first 2 weeks of launch. A game that was chosen Game of the Year in different websites, etc...

    Then we have MOP one of the most hated, criticized games to date....and u tell me that MOP sold 2.7M copies within 10 days of release, hahaha no matter how much one could hate wow thats a big unexpected number!

    Lots of hardcore gamers have left wow thats for sure, but it doesnt mean wow lacks a loyal player base....

    The sub part doesn't really mean much it just means that they picked up some china subs. 10 mill subs but only 2.7 copies of mop?
    Sounds like people are skeptical about getting it. ;P You gotta also remember this isn't the quarterly report its in a couple months. The last one was just in sept or august. So wait until then.

    Having 3 or 4 capped toons doing dailies in the last 2 expansions was like a job but it got all of them 10k each for flight and the other things we spend gold on without evening thinking about it.

    Well, I expected the expansion not to break any records, at least, but those numbers were hardly bad. Passing 10 million subscribers again so soon was a bit of a surprise, too. Will be interesting to see what will happen during the course of the expansion.

    2.7 million copies sounds like a small number for WoW, if its total playerbase is about 10 million players.
    Are those only the digital versions? Or both physical and digital copies combined?
    2.7 worldwide, or just Europe+America? That number, doesn't say much about the state of the game, to be honest. Further information is needed.

    The real test to MoP is how good will it retain players playing in the next months.

    So 2.7M players bought the expansion not a big deal imo.

    After December you should see a decline in numbers.
    Bad - This is a bad player, he refuses to learn how to play correctly.
    Casual - This is a player that will let everything else take priority over wow.
    Hardcore - This is a player that is fine with putting things on hold while he's on wow.
    Bad/Good - Measure of Skill.
    Casual/Hardcore - Measure of Time

    Problem is I never even replied to you in the beggining. All this was supposed to be towards a post that said WoW is dying.

    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...
    Im one of them, 21st october and im outta there.

    So, they sold 2.7 million copies in the first week but they have 10 million subscribers. 7.2 million of those subscribers aren't playing MoP?

    Also, Cataclysm sold 3.3 million on the first day. MoP didn't even reach that in a week. It seems like this expansion has greatly underperformed compared to it's predecessors.

    Most of Asia does not purchase expansions or monthly subscriptions like we do. They get expansions for free and pay for the amount of time they play in minutes.

    Last I looked their stock price was falling to it's lowest level in over a year though, not a time to celebrate. Shareholders drive everything.
