    The only time subs go up is when a new expac comes out, or when Blizz does something right.

    Banzhe: given what you're asking for, I'm not surprised they fired you as a customer. Satisfying you would be far more trouble than you're worth.

    A person with marginalized preferences, such as yourself, cannot expect to have a non-niche product that is tailored for them. At best, you can expect to find your place in it on the fringes. And apparently that isn't enough for you.

    If you register at activisionblizzard.com to listen (see the Investor Relations page), the stream is now available, although nothing is playing yet. The stream looks like it will have audio and a slide show.

    The game feels a bit emptier than it did before, I wouldn't be shocked at a mild drop. Nothing drastic though, 300-500k as a guess. They finally pulled their finger out and put out content at a good pace so they really don't deserve a big drop like they had before.

    Spoken like a true knight in shitt.., ehm, shining armor Osmeric, it may have made sense if you read just the first 3 lines in my previous reply, not that it matters now as you've proven you are part of the overall issue facing WoW now.
    Not that it matters in any way, blizzard have been rather successful in convincing people that the fun is in repetitive content where the reward is different colours, and tbh I'm not surprised looking at your reply n' Avatar

    They need a kick up the backside to get them working on issues that have caused some friends of mine to stop playing and that's low populated servers. Not everyone can afford to pay 40 odd pound to move servers and that's just for one character. Though I doubt they'll lower the prices they least they can do is drop that stupid excuse they've been using and just merge them already.

    So yeah I'm hoping for a big loss though it'll probably only be a small loss of a couple hundred k.
