    as per http://www.businesswire.com/news/hom...Shares-Vivendi wow subs are at 7.7m

    edit: is a drop from 8.3m which frankly is not that bad.

    I was expecting it to drop more to be honest, with the summer and all. I imagine it will go back up a little bit with patch 5.4, or stay around the same.

    I think we are starting to stabilize a bit now, also, odds are people are getting rid of second accounts and what not.

    Well this thread is about to blow up. How much down is that from last time? 600k?

    I expect they will keep dropping, go back up a little next expansion for people who have hopes Blizz will finally get their heads out of their ass then go back down if they don't, probably lose even more to be honest.

    Waiting for the "The game is old" excuse and others.

    7.7M would be Q2 numbers

    You won't see a result of summer, 5.3 lacklusterness or the cashshop shit storm effects till q3

    By the time quarter 3 happens theres a decent chance 5.4 will be out. Quarter 4 may see a sub increase if they announce the new expansion at blizzcon.

    Ahh that's what I thought, 600k. That's not as bad as I thought it would be, it being so late in the expansion. It'll likely hover near there (probably losing more but not much) until the next expansion.

    It does make you wonder where Blizzard gets their numbers from though. Most of the US servers feel pretty dead minus a hand full where the majority of the player base seems to congregate. Dunno how it is on the EU side. Are there really that many Chinese players?

    5.4 can only help the game, so i honestly dont think wow will go below 7m subs Until at least halfway through the next expanison.

    Seeing how there is no annual pass and what point it is in the xpac, I'm not that surprised.

    Virtual realms and a few other goodies really might help for 5.4. No wonder they're bringing out the bigger guns.

    US servers are stable compared to chineese ones. My server and all the servers i play on feel about like they did at the end of cata when wow still had around 9m players. I honestly think at least 70% of all losses since MoP have been in China alone, and they said the majority have been every quarter.

    How do you see it helping short of a new raid?

    Quarter 3 ends on September 1st correct? A chance 5.4 will be out by then.

    I expected them to be sub-7.5m at this point. MoP is actually doing far better than Blizz expected.
    Unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    If 5.2 which had one of the best raids we've seen in a while as well as quite a lot of extra content didn't help subs go up, I doubt 5.4 will.
