Nothing will 'kill' WoW IMO. Even if subs continue to be lost I think there is going to be a sweet spot where things will balance out due to content continuing to come out and people just wanted to continue to play the game. If anything was to kill WoW it would be something to do with Activision/Blizzard. Like a lot of developers leaving WoW for a new title or someone being hired and taking over who screws everything up. I think if they stick to the current model and the team stays happy developing the game it'll be around for a long long time to come.
When you stop subbing, or turn off your computer to do something else, you ARE the wow killer.
It's all on you baby! lol
This soap opera drama about which game will beat it is just a game to keep you in the market. ^_^
Only you can kill wow, by not playing it.
The wow killer is time.
Ghostcrawler is the WoW killer.
LoL is just a bad fad that will die out eventually, most people leave games because of things changing in there life. I have multiple friends that left WoW because they didn't have the time to commit anymore. They play Dota 2 & CoD alot, but those are quick games they can jump into when they want.
They always say though, if they have the time to commit to Schedule in WoW again, they would resub in a heartbeat.

It's been 10 years or something? Or close to it? There is no "wow killer"
The game will get old and die eventually. There is no magic "thing" that will come along to "kill" it. No hobby has ever been killed by something else. People get bored, they move on, they find different shit to do. That's it.
Now, that's not saying Blizzard can't revive the Warcraft scene with a WoW2 or something big and new that grabs people's attention spans once again, but things like new expansions and items in the current game itself won't do much for keeping WoW going indefinitely. As I said already, things like this die over time... the blame can hardly be pinpointed on anything other than time itself.
I hate MOBAs with a burning passion.
The killer was in the house THE WHOLE TIME GAHHHHH
