I predict the sub count is 1.
I am the only real player. Everyone else is either a bot, Blizzard employee, or very well programmed NPC.

No one said shit about wow vs "game title here"
All you do is come into theads white knighting wow and bashing other games. Why in the hell as a mod not banned you yet.
I have been banned for far less then what you have done.
No one in this thread gives a shit about other games.
This is a thread about WOW subscription and only WOW subscription stop derailing threads just because you don't like them.
and to be clear I have reported you.

2010/ WOW subscriptions were 12.000.000 in a world where paid subscriptions were STANDARD in AAA MMO's.
2013 / WOW subscriptions have to COMPETE in a world where FREE to PLAY is the new standard.
As such this change in the industry deserves to be mentioned AND defended in this thread.
I can imagine that most reknown WOW haters don't like me. I defend this game against them by showing the posters an overall industry view and EVIDENT fact WOW subscriptions are influenced by this change in the industry.

This thread is about WOW subs and only WOW subs not F2p other mmos and not about the MMO industry itself.
stop your white knighting bullshit it has gotten old. In every single D3/WOW thread you have to pop in and stop a flame war and bring other games into it when it had nothing to do with them.
More on topic, I don't know why people get their panties in a knot over subscriptions; either way, you'll never see these numbers in game. EU/US have separate servers, as does China.
Why does any of this matter when you'll only ever see half these numbers, if that.
I'll never understand why posters like BenBos make it their life's work to zealously defend a game, while putting down everyone else. Just play what you want and have fun.
Links for 11,5m subs on Jan 10 2010 :
Link for 11,6m subs on may 2009 :

sorry but kotaku, reuters, blizzplanet, escapistmagazine, seekingalpha don't seem like credible scores.
Blizzard did not report any loss till after cata. I would take Blizzard as a credible source

When challenging a Kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.
Over the last 10 years, Blizzard has taken over $10bn from MMO players. Take a look around your game...do you see $10bn worth of content available to you? Do you see even a tiny fraction of that in relevant content? Now ask me again why I dislike what Blizzard has done to the MMO industry.
The thread is about WoW-subnumbers.
Those numbers are useless in a vacuum: They need to be placed in context.
And if that context is that all competitors have almost no monthly paying subscribers, than WoW is doing extremely well no matter what the new numbers are.
In his last posts he isn't bashing any other game.
Something that is against the rules however, is bashing a user instead of addressing his arguments and discussing moderator-actions.
