What if subs rose in the west and fell in the east? MoP has been great, so i see no reason why subs would rise during wrath and fall during mop when mop is every bit as good.
I'd be extremely surprised if they rose. I'm part of many large online communities, and although WoW is still a game that is casually played by many, it's also a game that got put aside by many, at least from what I can observe in those communities. Back in the days almost 80-90% of us would regulary play WoW ... nowadays it's perhaps 10%...
This ofcourse doesn't mean that the subs must've fallen... it could just be that all the quitting accounts are replaced by new players, completely new to the genre, pressumably then younger generations of gamers.
I'll make a prediction, not long from now there will be a lot of new threads about this created, and most of them will get locked.
"you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.
hopefully i am one of the many thousands that stopped playing "hello World of Colorscheme island panda adventure pokemon extreme"
Honestly the game should be f2p at least just baseline leveling. You gain no rep or currencies no professions except first aid a very low gold cap but you can level to cap. This way people would not be so discouraged when they get to cap and realize the roles/specs they have to play in pvp/pve are not what they were hopein to play. Speaking for new players as I got pretty much every class @ cap.
I am really interested in seeing how many subs they lost. Esp knowing 5.3 will bring nothing cool to keep the content hogs happy. im going to say 75k-100k subs lost(i hope for way more than that though)

It's almost always the wrong argument to compare yourself to the highest DPS specs out there. "Middle of the pack" is actually where everyone is supposed to be. -Ghostcrawler
•Yes, this is a roller coaster. Our process is to try things out and iterate if we don't like them. If the churn offends you, just hang on for another week or two.
I also live in norway, so i think at 8-9 pm its when the call will start
On Topic: I hope subs and profits go UP and make the doomsayers lose their friggin minds. I'm not a fanboy, I just hate pessimists.
400-600k loss, based on content getting old, shine wearing off and dead servers forcing more to quit via boredom.
All queues of RBG'S/LFR/Dungeon/Scenario haven't been this since like 2 years?
EU/US i think is still rising, but Asian area will drop like 200k again.
That's all my prediction, and we dont live there so why should we care

I see nothing which would indicate the subs will stay/rise from where they currently are.
