    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    Ah, Jaylock, you and your band of naysayers are tasting the dirt at last.

    Quality of life improvements such as group finder and flexible raiding content were probably attracting more people than the amount that left.
    It'll bask in a certain glory for a while, untill the next sub revelation next conference call.
    dumdumduuuuuum.

    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.
    agree bro, wow is a ghost

    Players like cutting down jaylock, but he still succeeds in getting attention from players and getting them to be engaged in discussions on the forums. Current responses show how peoples behavior swaps when things are in their perceived favor. Just last quarter such posters ran around with their fingers in their ears.

    I predicted 100k - 200k loss but was wrong, did not expect this.

    WoW has been the #1 MMO game for the past 10 years and you care if it goes down? Okay lets all go back to Aion, SWTOR, Hellgate:London, Tabula Rasa, and the others that almost made 2nd place

    None of us, expected this. But it is good to finally see some nice growth even if it is only for a quarter.

    To think that WoW won't lose subs its just wishful thinking.. especially seeing how bad Mop was.
    Slow golf clap for you sir!
    Everyone's an atheist, some people just take it one god further.

    What has America come to where you get suspended from your job for simply stating your belief that all member of a minority group should be eradicated while addressing employees during a work meeting? Political correctness has run amok.

Its baseless doomsaying at this point, because everything was pointing towards a drop that didn't happen.
    The gain from patch 5.4 was enough to sustain the loss from the few (myself included) that already quit prior to 2013 ending. Do you really think only 200k joined in 5.4 and stayed since then? Fuck no. There was a loss from the raid becoming repetitive like every other tier, just a loss that was smaller than what was earned, 200k being the difference. With nothing to incentivize players to make a return in Q1, what will bring in players? What will keep players from quitting?

    This is something that I overlooked, but I doubt it's going to keep that many people in. It might negate the loss from Q1 (but I kinda doubt it as most players, especially PvP, are quite casual about it), but if nothing comes in Q2, the loss will be significantly larger than the gain.

    Hmm 5.7 Subs?

    7-5 = 2
    7-2 = 5 , 5 - 2 = 3

    This means 3.5
    Like the trolls tank from Hearthstone.
    2 is also the cost, atk and health of mad scientist.
    Mad scientist swaps between HP and health so it's used on the troll making it 5 attack and 3 health now.
    3 health is approx half of what he had before (5) just rounded up = Half life 3 confirmed.

    While no one expected a 200k jump upwards, it's a guarantee that subs will drop in this quarter, and drop even further in Q2 unless WoD drops then. Patches jump up a bit, expansions jump up a lot higher. Quarters without any content drop subs.
    Let me throw some water on your guarantee.

    In two weeks Blizzard will put WOD on presale, which means everybody that buys the presale gets a new instant level 90 right then.

    in Patch 6.0 the event leading to WOD Blizzard will introduce Mythic Raiding to SoO AND allow cross realm Normal and Heroic Raiding.

    ALL this before WOD skyrockets subs over the 10 million mark again.

    WOW has at least 20 years left bub, that is a LONG time to hate.

    Sometimes I wonder if he's paid by an outside marketing firm because the questions and ideas he present are just so far out there. 9/10 times you know the answer to his proposed ideas as you cringe because a 50 page trolling thread is about to start.

    Loads of people left, but the end-of-year sale of all World of Warcraft games brought more new people to the game. Smart move, but how many of them have left by now?
