And as far as BLizz talking about community... Maybe they should actually look at their dead servers and try to create some community instead of forcing ppl to pay 25$ per character for transfers? CRZ are not solution to dead servers. Just makes it worse.
maybe this will result in Bliz devs getting off their ego train, and stop trying to force players to play the content they want to......that dailies-rep thing was totally retarded.
then again, not sure what they could really do, after cata, to get it so wrong again in MoP, most of the people I know who quit, swear they wont ever go back no matter what, and have moved on to cheaper and arguably better games.
Still, its not like 9.6mil is the brink of death is it?
You know it kinda sucks that I didn't play from the beggining. The only dungeons I got to experience before LFD were Deadmines, Wailing Caverns and Scholomance.
Yeah yeah I know some people say it was hard to do 523648726429 quests in order to get attuned but it makes you feel more unique that way. Not to mention now that CRZ is here the point of servers is gone. This is the exact same reason I moved to Silvermoon EU. My server was somewhat "dead" and with CRZ it felt alive again. There was a problem though. Those players were not from my realm and they could honestly not give a single fuck about me or anyone else outside their realm.
So even though I never played before 3.3 at cap level, I really really want them to make Titan and never put LFD/LFR or CRZ.
people said that subs would go up once MoP was released. I guess not
Just goes to show how big WoW is though other competitors would love 500k subs never mind 9.6m.
500k is huge. its new xpack and allready 500k ppl left
Gee, maybe overtuned raids are the *wrong* thing to do...
At the start of MOP "not counting release" MOP has already lost 400k subs there is a good chance now that threw the rest of mops life it will lose more subs.
Personally I feel wow will have 8 million or less subs at the end of MOP if it keeps up this rate it will be a lot more.
What I find funny is that people where blaming the sub drops at the end of CATA due to no new content for so long and yet this early in MOP's life when there is a decent amount of content and just recently released raids there is 50% drop to what cata had in 4.3
People can over look it if they want but WOW has finally reached that point where they milked the MMORPG market and people are leaving.
Now will WOW die I personally say no but it will get to a point "and it started in CATA" that where will lose subs until it lowers to a base number and sits around it for quite some time.
"Before anymore comments about WOTLK WOTLK had the most high sub count in WOW history and even with ICC being out a year still got 500k subs at the end of it"
The Difference in WOW then and NOW with subs is that any sub that left back then 2 took its place and now for every sub that mite come in 2 are leaving.
To be clear once more there was no noticeable SUB lose in WOTLK it started with CATA.
Don't believe me google the sub reports and see for yourself.

Most complaints don't look like love to me. They're infatuation at best. That never lasts.
But then again, these days words are thrown around so easily, feelings, emotions, meanings... they mean nothing.
As far as I'm concerned, its the love for games that define and shape gamers.
Everyone else is just another person playing a game for any other reason but.
Just like all those half-assed "pro-football players" back in school/college. How happy they were to brag with their pro-skills.... None of them became pro...
I guess the moral of this story is..
People have a bigger bark than they have bite. And i find it difficult to take them seriously as they are just setting themselves up for ruin.
Perspective is like a coin. It has two faces, but most people fail to see both.
