That's just off the top of my head, and it's only my personal experience so I know it doesn't mean too much. But just judging from the numbers I've read, MOBAs and FPS are way more popular than MMOs nowadays.

I could spend $10 a month to see a movie, or spend $15 a month to grind dailies, or spend $30 a month on a super cool cable hookup that can livestream me events like blizzcon. Hell, even in gaming right now I could plop down a one-time fee of $30 and have just about any game I wanted from Steam.
On that Steam note, I've been having a lot of fun with Garry's Mod. And that's a 1-time fee of $10.
The Book of Ghost Crab:
And he led them out until [they were] over against Orgrimmar: and he lifted up his hands, and buffed their classes. And it came to pass, while he buffed their classes, he parted from them, and was carried up into the Emerald Dream. And they worshipped him, and returned to the General Forums with great joy.
They have gained more revenue.
They increased in MMORPG-marketshare.
They lost less percentage than any competition.
It's a win.
It can't and shouldn't be seen as anything other than a win.
Dailies are a lot more fun than grinding the same old dungeons for more fire resisitance gear
The Scientific Study Done On Fanboys explains a lot of thingsOriginally Posted by Frenegade
The Cult of Wow fanboys, Zealots and Fanatics can not be reasoned with because they will ignore all facts given and attack anyone who criticizes against their god known as Blizzard. The only way to deal with them is to add them to ignore.
I didn't like Cata either. It was a cheap expansion.
That doesn't mean that Blizz are free to create a terrible game. People will leave if the game sucks too, as Cataclysm proved. Cataclysm was terrible compared to Wrath.
diablo 3 best selling game
if only we had known what the game was really like
What I want more than anything is to see this game become massively different. It's not realistic now, but could be down the road. Wow 2 ain't happening.
Overall, if they lost China subs, and retained western subs, they must be pretty happy. China subs deliver very little $$$ to Blizzard compared to western subs.
