    I will gladly stay out of your WoW thread when people stop bringing GW2 into it with patently false information.
    People in the GW2 sub forum have already called you out on that stuff.

    You mean this thread where people claim that bi-weekly updates and the main city don't count? If you meant real debunking then I recommend heading to those forums with it.

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ll-alive/page4

    To move it back to the topic, could someone post screens of the new event on their server? It'd be nice to see how many people are around to enjoy it, the casual stuff seems like a good change, and how people respond to it is probably important to this conversation.

    The new event seems to be as much content as 5.3 barrens

    And it shall go down in history as that... well to be fair apparently there is a minior quest chain there, which should at least be worth twice as much as the unbearable "go to the barrens and collect resources" weekly quest.

    6 months is gonna be ROUGH especially without valor vendor for some kinda of longer term casual progression. Especially when the island pays out better than lfr (apparently). Of all the stupid fucking times to get rid of the god damn vendor.... Lots of other titles coming out this holiday season (new GTA, new battlefield) as well as new consoles. Maybe I cancel my sub now and put that money towards a new console? mmmmmmm lots of things to pull people away.. i hope the chill is felt in California because WINTER IS COMING (i couldn't help myself)

    And the tiny fraction for whom heroic raids are currently well tuned? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, the vanity development that gives you guys your own content is no longer supportable.

    And even that wasn't enough. Tell me is timeless isle on par with isle of thunder? or launch content? All the content that came with the raid offered little character progression. What it did offer was terrible grind and not altogether enjoyable.

    If you would like I can post at least 12 sources that we can measure and look at that show about a 80% drop (at the very least), including NCSoft sales, sPvP population in-game and server population data. Let me know if you want to see actual data and not some "pictures" which prove nothing.

    This thread is of Epicness:

    - First off, the Title is Negative-LITERALLY
    - Second, Jaylock bro, Nah-Dood. Naw
    - Third, WoW is the most polished MMO in History, has made more world headlines, and more money than any mmo we will EVER see in the history of EVER.


    Get over the fact that Sub Loss is always going to happen with an CIRCA 9 year old game (WOW RELEASED WITH HALO2?!?!?) - Get over it already

    Most polished is a matter of opinion....I think quite a few other mmo's are more polished. Can't really compare Wow to halo 2 since they are two different types of games. As for the 9 yr old myth "9 year old game really means nothing. Mop is a year old...wow today and wow in 2004 are two different things. The 9 yr old game argument would work if they never dated it. So let me ask this How was the game gaining subs when it was a 1 -6 year old game and did not start losing more subs than it was gaining till Cataclysm? "All of a sudden oh shit the game is 7 years old it starts losing subs" Of course this has nothing to do with Blizzards actions"

    Let's not forget they pushed back cr. I know several people that have taken the free seven days, seen that their server is still dead and said screw this game. People on the larger servers are getting to enjoy long ques and lag island. They have done a terrible job at server population for both ends.

    Well that too. I don't see the 5.4 holding people that long

    Final patch usually brings with it an influx of players who left a month after launch of the expansion.

    Players get to play at the beginning doing all the quest zones. leave, and come back to fill in what they missed, then leave again until the next expansion. This type of wow players plays a total of 3-4 months out of each expansion, and yet gets to experience (especially now with lfr) almost the entire content (the exception being battlefield barrens this time).

    If you like the game, but you are not totally addicted to it as a way of life, then this sub model works for most people.
