    Prediction: WoW Down to 5.7 Million Subs

    This is my prediction for the next conference call which is just a few weeks away. I know anecdotal evidence is anecdotal, but my bro's high pop servers that he plays on never have que times anymore. Two of the realms he plays on have lowered to medium pop, and several of his guild mates have stopped playing.

    I have several other friends who have stopped playing for various reasons. I don't think its just the SOO burnout, i think its legitimately people getting sick of this game, or just plain bored.

    What is your prediction?

    1m subs so that we can quit this topic forever.
    I can see what you see not - vision milky then eyes rot. When you turn, they will be gone - whispering their hidden song...

    I think it doesn't matter, because there will still be millions playing and that doesn't stop me from enjoying the game, and no doubt those taking a break right now will come back for the next expansion.

    I predict that you will keep making threads to stir up a mess for years to come.
    Nyoro~n? (´・ω・`)
    5:2 diet? Pft!

    One year, 62kg/136lb lost. Only a little bit left...

    Your prediction on the numbers may be close but I find the statement about you having friends hard to swallow :P

    Anyway, game is 10 years old, no big shock that numbers are falling.

    So True. What does it matter anyways about the Sub numbers?

    I would guess less than that. I bet if they told us how many of the remaining subs were actually European/American we'd be pretty shocked.

    Why do we have to waste time by comming up with predictions?

    So what if 1 mil players leave over the course of MoP, maybe 500k will join for WoD.

    Btw, nice sources for your prediction. Hihi.

    Because we're humans. Being a crowd of the biggest trend/game/company is very important for the average human.

    I predict it will be down to just 2 subs. One of them subscribing to harass the other subscription who wants to play.

    My prediction. 7.7 million subs.

    What does it matter to you how many people are playing the game as long as they're having fun?

    Its a topic of discussion. If you dont like or want to discuss it, you are free to not post in the thread. Simple logic no?

    no one is actually playing the game. You, even I, are all actually virtual Intelligences with "life simulators" to insert memories of living our life outside of playing wow and perception of supposed time.

    Sorry guys but the last number (wowcensus) showed good numbers of players activity. Also Boting is in good vibe atm, wont link stuff here ofc but it's pretty insane.

    It ll be a 100K Sub loss at max. I go with 50k loss sub.

    Less. We've come to an absolute stale point in time with no real guesses as to when things will look up, we have no idea when the next PVP season will come about, or how long it'll play out before we have any clue as to when WoD may hit. Worse than ICC.

    wowcensus is an invalid and not reliable source to view realm / player activity. Just look on your realm list and see all those medium and low pop servers.. that should be evidence enough alone to show that subs will be down by ALOT this conference call..

    Sorry mate, the game is just not what it used to be..
