The majority of people who are unhappy with a service just stop using it they do not tell the business why. Blizzard have a fantastic resource in these and forums like them in which people will gladly give up their time to talk about, in detail, what they like and dislike about WOW.

I wish there was only 3 milions subscribers, with WoW cancelled at the East, to shut up all the haters with their - "WoW East doesn't count".
I wish this 3 milions that left were happy customers, with all the haters and hype hoppers left the game already.

It's obviously going to be lower. No, that does not mean that WoW is dead.
Nor does it mean that your pet peeve is right, and that if they <removed LFR, brought back world PvP, make heroic raids even harder, nerfed crowd control, etc> that everything would be fine. In fact, it'll probably make things worse.

Personally I don't think it's fair or even has much use to compare subscriber numbers between MMOs when most MMOs out there don't bother trying to release outside the West (US, EU, Australia). And then to use the subscriber numbers as a measurement of quality is when it gets completely ridiculous.
Let me point out what is wrong with the following statement:
"WoW is the best, because we have 8,3M subscribers!"
1. "WoW is the best": Very subjective. It has smooth and very responsive controls and sure does offer a lot of things. But on the side of graphics and gameplay diversity or even quest and leveling quality it falls short compared to more recent MMOs. It also offers a decent endgame, but not the best end-game or best raiding scene that is available on the market right now.
2. "Because we have 8,3M subscribers": Only because they forcefully made the game have a global coverage. Most modern MMOs that people think try to compete with WoW or try to compare with WoW aren't even reachable for 90% of the market that WoW covers. Once again, it's pointless to compare MMOs when WoW has a global coverage and has subscriber numbers inflated by a few million chinese, while other games like GW2 and Rift don't even try to branch out into Russia or the middle-east, let alone Asia... Furthermore quality is definitely not defined by subscriber numbers or viewers... since if that was the case then Honey Boo Boo child would've been one of the best TV shows of the decade and Pewdiepie is the best Youtube channel ever...
It's why I find the 8,3M number ... very dumb and pointless when used to compare with other MMOs. And why Blizzard should post regional sub numbers, or people should only use the regional estimates if they want to compare WoW with other MMOs.
But hey, nice to see you play on Silvermoon EU by the way. I was a founding member of Inner Sanctum for many years...

Freedom without Socialism = Plutocracy
Socialism without Freedom = Tyranny
Personally, my enjoyment of the game doesn't correlate to the sub numbers, as long as I have enough people to raid with.
