    What you define as a lot and what I define as a lot are 2 different things. Some people tellings small details (which half never even ends up being released off in the final product) about their game is not a lot from my point of view.

    Well, by a lot:

    Most of Expansion V if it's intended to be released by Spring next year.

    5.5

    Heroes of the Storm

    Diablo 3 Expansion details

    Starcraft 2 next expansion details

    Hearthstone stuff

    Possible Titan stuff.

    I guess it depends on what the two of us consider to be "a lot".

    Called -150k. But as of 30 sept so during 5.4 rush peak.... That not so good.

    I think it ll depends of bllizzcon and 5.5 but we ll see bigger drop the next q.

    Q4 at least 400k
    Q1 600k

    Now blizzard have to find a way to keep subs for 6 month without any new big content. A true challenge. Blizzcon hype could help.

    Imo if next xpac sounds great i ll just unsub my 3 acc and w8 for it. If it sucks, well...

    Those numbers are not relevant to the predictions or threads on MMOC aslong the Asian sub numbers included.

    Here's the bottom line. Ppl are applauding the fact they only lose 100k instead 1mil. That's like saying - good job - you only lost the game 5-4 as opposed to losing 12-1. It's definitely progress and better than the doom and gloom faction expected, but seriously - slowing the bleeding and stopping the bleeding are two completely different things. Blizzcon is critical for their future success, popularity and growth. And, I am 85% certain they will fuck it up beyond recognition.

    As I said, small details about stuff that have a very high chance of never making it into the game is not a lot.

    They have a lot more going on now than they have at any other Blizzcon in the past. We have three franchises with expansions on the way and two side games that still haven't been released but have different amounts of testing going on.

    Plus there's the movie, all kinds of merchandise, and the extremely tiny and unlikely chance they might show us something about Titan (which I doubt).

    It's a conspiracy, the report is before Blizzcon so MMO-C can ban a lot of people

    What else would we see at Blizzcon?

    I don't think it is fair to place the blame on MOP. This has been a very strong expansion with an increase in story telling and great raiding content. The age of the game is a big factor as to why people move on.

    This "50%" loss started in Cata not MOP. And actually from 12 to 7.6 million is 36%, not 50.
    Disclaimer: No I'm not Alliance. I reserve the right to bat for both factions thank you very much.

    WoW would still be in the top 100 populated countries if it were a country, right above Bulgaria at 99!

    Guess we just differ on opinions then in this regard.

    Oh well.

    Well SoO isn't exactly old yet so it's expected to have stayed around the same spot, to be honest I thought there would be a slight rise in subscribers. Meh, guess I was wrong.
    The Runaway. I love my new nickname. Is there a picture of me? Does it look good?

    maybe another annual pass tied to some other product. it was a brilliant scheme the first time around.

    Not really. There will be other quarterly reports after this one and before the next expansion launches. It's fair to say they'll be worse than this one which is better than I expected.

    On another note: it's disgusting to see so many people emotionally invested in the failure of a video game. Move on already.
