I point out once more because people conviniently ignore the reality of:
-no sub based MMO has ever reached 12 million subs
-no sub based game has ever kept almost 8 million subs after 8.5 years
-in fact..no sub based game ever reached 8 million subs ever in their life span
-no game (sub based or not) has kept growing or maintaining their player numbers over more than 8 years
Add to that Blizzard keeps pumping out other sucessful games like SC 2 and the Diablo franchise...and is working on the next gen MMO Titan....
