    losing 500k subs during a 12 months of the same content is nothing lol

    1.5 million pre-purchases of WoD tho.

    suprising? no and yes. i was sure it was down with more. sure you will say its stil 500k but if you think how much has changed between the last 2 shareholder releases ( this is sarcasm by the way as nothing changed) you would think more have stopped with there sub temporarilly or forever.

    I was right on the money... I guess an 800k loss. I also guessed 1.3-2m preorders but thought it would be around 1.5m

    Not really unexpected seen as we've kinda had SoO for nearly a year and still 2-4months till any new content... Only really themselves to blame for any losses :/ Sure it will pickup again in wod...

    P.S iseeyou and eriktheviking are each others biggests enemies

    Not suprising. No new content for a year. I expect many of them will be back when 6.0 is released or at least when WOD comes.

  12. #12
    Well, they could have tried another annual pass to stop massive sub loss, even so, 6.8 million is pretty good. No MMO out there right now, that i'm aware of, has close to that.

    That's great news for them. People are resubbing to catch up for the expansion and that seems to be holding them over despite the admittedly embarrassing lack of new content since 11 months ago.
    Blizzard has forgone the route of taking risks with their stories and has decided that
    pandering to the rebellious pre-teen mindset is a safer bet. Thanks Metzen.

    Would be nice to see what the sub loss would have been if they did not require you to sub and log in, to get the free chopper? That would be the real sub loss, but they padded their losses by requiring you to log into the game to obtain the chopper mount.

    It's an 800k loss actually and it is only Q2 which covers up to 9 months after SoO, not the current 12 month mark of no content that is upcoming

    OH NOES! Only 100m/month from subscriptions! How will they ever survive?

    The Sub quarter was expected, what wasnt expected that WoD is doing this great!
    1.500.000 and the big advertisement of cinematics on tv and everything hasn't even started yet.
    I see WoD having old sale numbers of near 3.000.000 on first day!

    Any subs that logged in to get the free chopper are not counted in this report.

    6.8m is the number of Subs WoW had at the end of June.

    Maybe they should stop saddling their subscriber base with year-long droughts at the end of every expansion. I mean honestly, they should have learned this particular lesson all the way back in Wrath.
