    Why do people care so much about how many people are playing? Just don't play on a shitty dead server and you're fine.

    Honestly, you've nothing to back that claim. This earnings report is of the end of the quarter yes? If we didnt see a drop then, which is something we'd normally see, you can't really assume we'll see one later. Its baseless doomsaying at this point, because everything was pointing towards a drop that didn't happen.

    Q1 2014 though, they'll lose that 200k if not more, just to gain quite a bit in Q2 when WoD comes out, then back to losing more in Q3/Q4.

    I'm guessing they're planning on a PvP resurgence to help sustain the game through the next few months. It might actually happen, as the value of PvP gear will be the highest it's been in the expansion.

    7,8m people, 10m people, 4 m people have one thing in common. That's still a fuckload of people that (most) MMO's/other games can only dream off.

    WoW is dying!!!!

    Wait, 200k up?

    Don't worry, Q1, they'll be down 2 million subscribers. And they'll fire half the dev team. WoW is dying because of store buttons on the login screen and a boost to Level 90.


    Did I cover all the arguments? OK. Just checking. In all seriousness, glad to see that WoW trended up for this quarter. Hey, I was one of the people who came back.

    Of course there will be a drop. Lack of content = Drop in subs.

    At 31st of December SoO was still ripe. Next quarter it won't.

    The best part is once again he is banned and can't make the "Blizzard is lying about how many subs there are" thread he oh so wants to make right now. You know he is sitting there reading these posts just eagerly wishing he could say something.
