    They tend to not give specific names when announcing how many games they plan to publish

    and I also predict we will have 100 threads after screaming "wow is dead" even if the game only lost 30 subscribers

    I hope new expansion announcement. With how fast MoP is going I don't think they can hold off until Blizzcon to announce it.

    Even if they gain subscribers people will claim WoW is dead and that subs are artificially inflated by this or that.

    I say around a 200-300k sub lost at lease.

    Wow could gain a million sub's and people will cry about how wow is dead and dying... Most of the time you can't fix stupidity.

    ToT started in March.
    I'd expect the subs to be higher than previous.
    It's the Q2 I'm expecting a little bit of a decrease.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    I see more subs being dropped in Korea/Asian countries, and probably Europe. Not sure where everything is located, but only taking a wild guess.

    Last time i said around 500 000 and i was correct. This time I think it will be around 300 000 lost subs. Reason i think so is all the guilds on my realm that disbanded and the lack of players in OpenRaid lately.

    I would think remains the same. Game is very stable.
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    I predict that those that hate Wow/Blizzard will make a big deal out of even a tiny loss;
    I predict that those that hate Wow/Blizzard will accuse Blizzard of faking the numbers if there is any sub increase;
    I predict that the sun continues to rise in the east;
    I predict that those that enjoy the game will continue to enjoy the game regardless of a sub increase or sub decrease.

    Fear not, I will get the ball rolling, for I am bringer of death to worl.. ehm ye, 1,500.000 lost subs, 500,000 for the Eastern regions, 1,000.000 shared between NA / EU..,well, 1.75 actually, I forgot the 250,000 that dropped their license to slay bunnies in the grand pet battle arenas, as it wasn't pokemon enough since there's no ball throwing.
    This just in, developers are considering implementing ball tossing in pet battles, once the ball opens there's a chance your pet will emerge, or a bag of coins including several purple items, a legendary of optional choice and 5000 lesser charms.

    Close to no change, maybe little gain (because of TOT release). Q2 will be a big drop in subs.

  16. #16
    Drop: 100-300k.

    They lost subs (inevitable at this stage, it's past it's peak, but still strong), people who quit anyway will try and stir up drama and validate themselves.

    Business as usual then, people still playing roll their eyes, and not one f*ck was given that day.

    I don't really care and I'm curious as to why others do?

    I consume Blizz's product, thats the sum total of my relatioship with them. I don't follow Audi's results and obsess over their sales figures because I drive one.
