    Exclamation Subscription predictions for next quarter!

    Personally I think the newness of Pandaria has faded off and subscriptions are going to be in decline. I predict 8.5million subs, that means 1.5million lost.

    Does it really matter what they are?

    I am having fun. Millions of others are having fun. How many subs there are are not top of mind for a majority of players. It did not matter when WoW started, It did not matter when it had 12M. It did not matter when it fell to 9M.

    Because it's of no influence on the game and because the majority (probably 95% if I'd have to say a number) is not an investor and is therefor not affected.

    It did not matter for you. Stop putting words in others mouths.

    i doubt it would be lower than 9. i personally want them to stay the same.

    when they go up: "PFFFFFTTT EVERYONE KNOWS 99.9% OF PLAYERS ARE FROM CHINA"

    when they go down: "SEE SEE EVEREH ONES IN TEH WES THINK THIS GAIMES SUKS NAO BC WAS BES NOOBS"

    when they stay the same: "meh nothin to see here"

    Well if it fell dramatically to like under 4-5M then there might be some impact on the game due to the lack of resources coming in. However even with that amount it wold still be bringing a lot.

    When WoW had 12M my server had very healthy population with many riding, pvp and RP guilds (its PvP-RP server). Now that WoW has 10M my server has one raiding guild that does heroic content, pvpers and rpers moved long time ago. So in my case sub numbers kinda matters.

    Ok so only 1 out of 10M+ doesn't care about subs according to you. I am pretty sure a vast majority of players do not read forums and just play happily without regards to outside news. This can be observed by the fact that there are stil 5x as many people paying to play this game that any other MMO even though this and the official forums claim its a dead dying game. If everyone payed attention to this crap they would have left a long time ago.

    I am an investor and it doesn't matter to me since WoWs revenues went up as subs dropped.

    You can't tell me what matters to me because I decide that myself, and one thing that matters to me is subscription base numbers.

    It matters because all the dead or dieing realms will be worse.

    Milking players on dead servers with PCTs. Make sense.

    wow would be profitable at 500k subs. in fact that was there one and only goal when it came out "if it gets to 500k we know weve made it"

    the only impact it would have on the game if subs got really low is that content might come out a little slower and realms would have to be merged but as long as its profitable blizzard will continue to make expansions and content for it

    People that hate the game think so. It makes them feel better. In a few days it'll be hilarious, if subs stay the same, they wont make 1 thread XD.

    i think MoP is one of the better expansions, but i expect a small drop.
