0-100k Sub Loss
100k - 500k Sub Loss
500k - 1M Sub Loss
Greater than 1 Million Sub Loss
Sky Admiral Rogers for High Queen. Remember Theramore!Men, you've trained for this. You're among the elite. You are Skyfire men! This is the ship that took down Deathwing. You think some raggedy little Horde outpost stands a chance against the pride of the Alliance fleet? NO! Those green dirtbags down there plagued your homes in Southshore, laid siege to your children in Redridge, and massacred every man, woman and child in Theramore. It. Is. PAYBACK TIME!
now, if Activision had been the one to buy and merge with vivendi games, and They had been the entire parent company, i would say that yes, blizzard was rolled into Activision.
but no, Activision was merged into Vivendi and then rolled into Blizzard. They totally just choose to call the company by alphabetical order.
Losing $19.5 million dollars a month over last quarter is a real kick in the nuts. They will be under the 5 mil mark on the next one (quarter update). So what is going to give, meaning, what direction will they go. It is very possible they start throwing less resources at the cash cow now, this is all a bad sign. It is not good.

down 600k i bet.
Too cool for a signature
What happened is that a deal was struck that folded Blizzard into Activision, and in return gave Vivendi a controlling share of the stock in the resulting entity (which was renamed from Activision to Activision-Blizzard). However, Activision's previous shareholders also retained ownership interest in this merged company. At no point was Activision, or Activision-Blizzard, 100% owned by Vivendi.
Down anywhere between 500-800k if I had to bet.
I reckon another huge sub loss. Final Fantasy 14s release (regardless of whether you think its a good game or not) I think will have severely dented the sub numbers. I also think they game has become incredibly stale, facereoll and boring until you hit normal mode by which time I'm already burnt out of the content. I voted over a million.

Blizzcon must have quite some news for us, not just raising the level cap, new continent etc... there must be something to appeal to new people.
Also I think blizz needs to think about how casuals play games and try to attract a lot more than they have now.
We're down to roughly 2,5m subscribers in US + EU combined apparently, according to the investors site.

Yeah I think these people are trolling... it is illegal to give insider information to anyone before the results are announced. Doing so could influence the market today, giving people a chance to buy or dump stock before the general investing public is informed. I would be completely surprised if A/B released anything to anyone, even by accident. There are fines involved with such behavior AT THE LEAST.
