I'm tired of mmo champ posting the sub count. If people wanted to know, they have a way of finding it themselves. But it's nothing but detrimental to the game when the largest WoW fansite posts the numbers because a large portion of their viewers don't understand how to correctly interpret what those numbers actually mean. Thus, it lowers the moral of the morons who jump on the doomsay bandwagon and leave the game.
My suggestion: Stop posting the freaking sub counts on the front page of the website, MMO. Good or bad. Let the viewers who actually know what that information means and WANT to find it, find it on their own. If WoW truly is "dying," then most certainly you're not helping anyone by adding fuel to that fire.
(This was my post in another thread that got closed due to there already being multiple threads on the subject, and it was closed before I got to hit reply so I'm posting it here. The OP basically agreed with this OP and said it in a much more sarcastic way, some guy responded, and this is my response to that response, and tbh, I think it still applies in this thread, anyway.)
