If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.
On topic: I think, with x-realm heirlooms and SoO, that the sub loss will be mitigated somewhat...definitely not below 6.4 mil subs.
Don't know why you guys keep wasting server bandwidth over these stupid "prediction" threads.
Won't change a whole lot , but this topic is new and exciting so glad you chose to make it....
Less players means more mounts on the blizzstore.
Once WoW enters its final downwards spiral ATVI will try and get as much money of the remaining players as to fund their next golden cow.
Disclaimer: The majority of my posts might be dripping in sarcasm. Don't take everything I say literally.
Literally what you said.
Implying Blizzard should 1) Stop catering to Casuals (i.e Appeal to the more "hardcore" audience), 2) That it's the cause of lack of players.
WoW is only going down from here, if you ignore the occasional ~100k gain from new expansions. And it has nothing to do with the fact it's more casual than ever. It has everything to do with the fact that the game is 10 years old, and eventually people are gonna get tired of playing the same thing over and over again. Some people will come back for the new expansion, but they'll quickly remember why they quit in the first place. That happens to me every single time, but it won't happen this time.
It won't happen this time because I've realized that Blizzard is done creatively. Instead of staying hungry, they got fat and happy with where they were at. That's why when the subs started dropping, they had no answer. The subs continued to drop, and they thought getting content out faster than ever would be the fix. They were wrong. The problem isn't the speed of content, it's the fact the content is now boring.
It won't happen this time because I've realized that Blizzard's main goal is to milk the game for all its worth. We're seeing more and more items and services being thrown on the store at an alarming rate. This game used to be free of that stuff, because paying $15 month actually meant something. Not anymore. Next will be microtransactions on the level of Candy Crush.
I think it's time for people to wake up and smell the coffee. Blizzard is but a shadow of its former self. Their greed is leading this game to ruin, as it will for all their games.
this video explains it too:

Don't know what happened but Blizzard must have socially engineered people over the years.
Considering how many people from my friends list started playing again that I haven't played with since T11: No loss - 200k
I don't think the subs are going to change much to be honest, it's probably going to be like +/-100k.
