0-100k Sub Loss
100k - 500k Sub Loss
500k - 1M Sub Loss
Greater than 1 Million Sub Loss
Also 2013 did not have a new expansion, so the total revenue of 2014 will probably beat 1 billion dollars again.
If not do enjoy the new money streams of HS and Blizzard's dota in that year.
They make it look like one is just ok, and then they had just slow/bad one.
(and say in the next meeting they expected a slow Q4 and are going to be releasing an expansion soon 'so don't worry')
This has nothing to do with wow failing or any such thing - it is doing amazing for its age.
Looks like management just tried to pad their numbers to have a good quarter.
Quit making assumptions on peoples intentions.
-if people activate the free 7 days at the end of Sept. they would have been active accounts.
Free time is the same as Pre-paid time.
or how about as is stated...trials and free accounts do not count towards active subs lol....its not guessing your intention...you are bringing to the table falsities and trying to draw the links when in actuality there is no links to draw from it. Meaning you are ignoring facts due to an agenda you are trying to push. lol
I was expecting alot bigger hit.
Damn Blizzard, goodjob.
With f2p cardgame, moba and new expansions for WoW and Diablo they seem to have strong year ahead of them when it comes to making money.
And that's why these "discussions" are useless as Blizzard has many more money streams in the pipeline than WoW subscriptions.
So "financially" this subscription focus lost its interest now that WoW is just a part of it all.
And player wise ... these discussions are complete OBSOLETE as connected realms solve the empty realms/weak economies forever.
So tell me haters, why the fuzz ?
sigh: another bunch of frustrated guys putting up a green smile I guess tonight...
I am surprised it was that low, I guessed over 1 million originally and that it would be under 5 million by end of year 4th quarter. It is a casual's casual game now that's for sure.
The calm before the storm. Q4 will be very nasty.
