    Only 100k drops!

    Obviously some will see this as BAD but honestly it's actually good! WoW won't ever hit 12 million again, not unless the competition all dies! It's on a natural decline but that's nothing to worry about. Especially considering only 100,000 unsubscribed in an expansion that's at it's end! Obviously Blizzard is doing something good to keep people playing

    Anyone who says a quarterly drop of 100k after the previous year is bad isn't thinking straight.

    They didnt start mass banning bots yet. That would probaly be another 500k subs.

    As for the game you will see a huge decrease pretty soon. My guild went from active 30 players to 10 in just 20 days.

    Exactly, what's a Q again? 3 months? That means if it's gonna continue at this rate then that gives WoW a steady 14 years

    Then again. 100k is basicly just bots that have been perma banned?

    A 1.3% drop is pretty much insignificant.

    Well good for all those who left. Now if only they would leave the forums alone too.

    Wait 'till we're 8 months into SoO. That's going to be another huge drop.

    Whilst I love a good WoW-basher-bashing (1.2m drop thread earlier, errmerrgerrd), I'm sure this could be discussed in the other thread.

    20 people quitting your guild isn't exactly evidence

    Yep. 5.4 had yet to come out. Next quarter will be more telling. Although it took a full quarter after DS released for WoW to lose massive subs in 2011-2012. So we may know more during the quarter after this.

    Luckily, the "subscription numbers" are now out of the way of players "satisfaction" for good as the ongoing connected realms kill these arguments of the haters and doom preachers for good.

    But apparently they now concentrate on the financial arguments stating Blizzard catches less money with WoW.

    That "argument" is also old by 2014 as Blizzard will introduce other very lucrative steady money streams with HS and their Dota game.

    7.6 as opposed to the 7 or less I was expecting. I'm actually amazed. Though this begs the question, if the tanks didn't quit the game, why are they nearly impossible to find in queues?

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    Q3 runs July through September. So it would have had the first few weeks of SoO. Not likely enough for people to really flood back, though.
