    I already made a prediction on the official forums that there will be a 500 000 drop, but Blizzard deleted the thread

    NO! They lost two subs and they are obviously a dying game now and we should all abandon ship!

    I predict something between -500k to +500k

    8.8 mil and going down

    With that being said MoP is much better then cataclysm but because blizzard fucked over 25 man raiding its just gonna go downhill.
    I feel we have a strong community and we have 2 25 man guilds on Alliance side, but I play on Horde and we have 0 25s yet, there are tons of people on and about. Friendly chat throughout the day, PuGs, people available or Sha all the time, people grouping fro dailies, and so on. 15 additional people in an instance do not add to the community.

    Part of the problem is lazy people who would rather not interact with others. Part of the problem is internet ass hats you make it undesirable for others to ant to interact. The last part is the quality of life features, partially goes hand in hand with the lazy players for the LFD/randoms part, but you can log on and get your stuff done in an hour and log off. No longer do you need to grind out for hours, days, or weeks just do do stuff and hope you have enough in the guild or hope for server people to help out.

    It's a double edged sword. I think it is better personally. I haven't progressed this fast with as little time, by that I mean gathering mats for raiding and capping valor. We still have roughly the same amount of pulls per boss from the first pull of normal MV to the first kill of H Sha as we did for any other previous expansion with HM/heroics.

    RIGHT! And if they gain subs it's because of all the accounts botters and chinese gold farmers are making!

    It will be pretty equal or a slight loss, US/EU has gone down a lot, Asia will compensate.

    Or they finally figured out how to get out content faster without having to have patch with raids/dungeons every time. This is something they have been shooting for for a long time. After Vanilla, each patch was pretty much a raid patch. So all that content had to be held up until the raid was ready. We say with 4.1 that FL was not ready so the gave us ZA/ZG. The plan for MoP was to go live with raids/dungeons, patch story dailies, additional stuff, then a raid patch. This way they can keep content coming at a faster pace.

    I think the subs will stay the same or rise a little bit. MoP is a really awesome expansion.
    I can see what you see not - vision milky then eyes rot. When you turn, they will be gone - whispering their hidden song...

    Well, in the past they have already ruled that Chinese players aren't real people..
    So it wouldn't surprise me if WoW-fans aren't real people either!

    The best of threads and moments like this is that they bring out all the usual trolls.
    The downside ofcourse being that I cannot name them that

    This forum is fucking stupid.
    Tonight, I will play reverse psychology!
    If subs go up, I will claim that TEH BLIZZ ROX!
    If they go down that means they banned bots :P

    I'm curious to see what will happen. I'm guessing a slight drop of subs; prob -700k. I think that the content really just isn't that good personally. It is a lot better than 4.3 was that's for sure. There are a lot (i'm not speaking for the community just from what i've read on message boards and such) of players that were turned off bigtime by pandaren's and pandaria. A lot of players made comments about farmville this and pokeman that. It's to each their own. I still enjoy the game but there is always going to be stuff I personally don't like that others love. It's just how the game is.

    Content will always drive some players away but it will also entice new players to start playing. It just really comes down to blizzard enticing more new players than the amount leaving.

    Honestly is some mouthbreather makes a "Herp WoW is dying derp derp" thread, the mods are going to have to disable my account for a day or 2 or I'm going to flip shit.

    Quality>Quantity. People don't want dailies as content. The sooner Blizzard recognizes this the better. If people were all gungho and fired up for fucking dailies then they wouldn't have been bored in the past. Dailies have existed since the dawn of fucking time and they didn't stop anyone from being bored before.

    As an aside and not related to the above, this forum has so many cheerleaders it's funny. They caricature every "hater" but don't realize that they themselves come across equally as clownish when they make comparisons.

    CRZ was not intended to solve low pop server problems. They were to fill low pop zones. Let me ask you, did you ever play EQ after the third of fourth expansion? If you did, you know there was no one in any of the non level capped zones ever. In a game that required you to be in groups to progress, this made things impossible and very lonely. WoW does not require you to be in a group to level, but it can still be very lonely and depressing not seeing any one else until you hit OL and then it's all DKs. CRZ was put in to give old emptier zones more life and that is all. Blizzard has stated this and refutes your claim.
