1,3M sub drop, This is alot.
i'm worried about the end of WoW coming near :3
Lol, some games are thriving at 200k players and some think 8.3 mil is the end of the game.
Imagine the next quarter.... don't think 5.3 will impress people enough to stay subbed.
With the increase in player base the community went to shit. A decrease will only improve the quality of the community.
I am a statistic now!! Woooohooo
We will see if they break down the numbers, but my guess is 1 million+ from "the East" and the other 300k or so from the Americas and Europe. The game is old, there are new things to try, and in all seriousness who expected Wow to keep 10 million+ subs going when they are approaching the 10 year mark?
I like this Xpac. The raiding has been well done, but it was very unfriendly to alts, and some people like to play multiple toons. We will probably get a bump with 5.4 and then another drop until the next xpac.
I agree with what someone said earlier, I could see wow losing subs until about the 5 million mark and then stabilizing for a long while.
Not that big of a deal. There are still more than 8 MILLION people playing the game. On top of that we had SC2: Heart of the Swarm release which was the #1 selling game this year.
More dailies! More reputation farming! More raid bosses! More tokens to acquire! More point farming! MORE!
Yeah weird, since the game is the best it's ever been. However, I do agree with the low pop issues that needs resolving quickly. I play on a low-populated server and it really feels kind of dead compared to before. Recruiting is difficult and the last 5-7 recruits we've had have been found on other realms. (This is good for Blizzard though, more transfer money - tinfoilhat).
All in all, the only thing that's making the game not enjoyable is the lack of people around on certain servers. Fix it soon!
Most of the loss came from the East once again guys.... unless you got a ton of people on your server that are from the east you where not really affected and your server was not as well!
