    As for the question of the thread, i think after ICC and during Cataclysm they tried to cut back on content and probably thought that the players will stay nontheless but after that didn't work out they probably got their dev team back to the original size.

    Everquest is still going;
    And isn't Ultima Online also?

    WoW isn't going anywhere until it becomes unprofitable and there are many courses that can be taken to ensure it does even if/when the game is no longer king of the market.
    Even if the player base drops under it's absurd amount now people will scream it's dying;
    Just like what happened with EQ.

    ...And this is really making me want to pick up that game in my free time to see how it's evolved.

    Honestly, this is one of the best analogies I've seen in a LONG time. Bravo little bunny.

    Well, let's hope they keep their promises, i think if they keep up the good work and fast content, and would bring like burning legion, i think the subs will go over the roofs

    Did they keep all their promises before? No, so why expect them to do so now?

    You know MoP is succesful when the worst thing people can say about it is that there are daily quests to do, well, daily.

    It's simple to me. As long as they produce a game I want to play and think is worth paying for, I'll keep playing. Only when that's no longer true, will WoW be "dead".

    What cracks me up are so many people who clearly think WoW and Blizzard now suck either continue to play or continue to post on a message board for a game
    they don't like.
    Stating an opinion as fact does not make it fact. Opinions are not fact. So don't be stupid and make a fool of yourself by trying to pass off your opinion as fact.

    Really, using a terrible illness as analogy it's the worst thing you could do, and most of all shows how much you're idiot.

    OT: WoW has at least 2 more expansions in it, so no it's not going anywhere for a while.

    Just gonna say.

    I got my PS2 a little after it was released, and it's still working today. Heck my boyfriend's is still working too.

    9 Million+ players seem to enjoy this claimed "Playstation of MMORPGs". That's simply your opinion.

    Oh, by the way, GW2 is it's real competition. GW2 is a FANTASTIC game, just not one I liked and thus did not level past level 18.

    It also had the competition of Rift AND SWTOR. You remember how those worked out, correct?

    And I like my PS3, thank you very much.
    I'm not sure you understand what competition is.

    How is GW2 or Rift or SWTOR not competition?

    I mean, sure, each game has their own share of subscribers, but a portion of those players are also former WoW players.

    That makes those games and the companies who made them competition, because they're holding some of the customers another company wants.

    It has 9 million subs. It's still doing well I think.

    Speaking of, Final Fantasy XI is 11 years old and has a new expansion being released.

    As for the Sony thing, had Blu-ray not won the format war the PS3 would probably not have been as popular as it is now. The only thing that keeps a system profitable now is exclusivity of its games. The more games are available on multiple consoles the more you can weed out bad systems now.

    For WoW, I'll hold my judgment for how this tier ends. If Tier 15 goes like Tier 14 did where I have to wait until the VERY LAST DAY and get my 4-piece from LFR by flipping multiple coins on the Tuesday that ToT LFR launches I'm out. I already look at my alts and can't stomach grinding out Golden Lotus rep on them or suffering through endless Lei Shi and Tsu-takes-too-damned-long for possibility of gear. Let's face it: I'm old, I'm tired, and I can find better things to do to spend time with my irl friends than run around a fantasy world that decides to give us the middle finger on a regular basis.
    Anyone else think Jaime Lannister only has the Kingslayer title because he was just too lazy to kill the king on heroic mode?

    I think new glory days of WoW are only ahead of us.
    No I'm not talking about subscriber numbers, but quality of the game, rate of content releases, more and more ingame activities. MoP improved so much this game and I think it's only the beginning.

    I believe it. Im lovin 5.2 its keepin things as frash as things can be daily-quest wise

    That's defiinitely the impression I get from this expansion and especially this patch. The World of Warcraft seems intent to expand in every sense of the world.

    Meh. If they continue to not add dungeons after the initial xpac release, this game won't survive past the next xpac.

    Yeah because 5mans are really what makes or breaks an expansion.
