    It's not "China argument", it's simply an explanation for why things happened at certain points. If you're going to disregard any factual information with regards to China as "Hurr durr China", then why bother responding in the first place? Nobody discounted them as subs. If we did, then WoW would have lost significantly less than 800k subscribers.

    You will probably not see this comment. But still I think your comment is one of the most interesting points among those that have been brought in this thread outside of the Fanboys/Haters eternal debate.

    MoP shows the disconnect WoW has with its own lore, and that disconnect is now further confirmed by WoD, it shows that Blizzard can no longer advance that story that started with Warcraft and can only now either bask in the nostalgia or worse twist it like they did with MoP into something it just isn't.

    Not too long ago, WoW was associated with innovation, fun, and great design, the whole industry was looking up to it, now it has lost all that innovation for more of the same or worse less of it, lost all the fun to the same old raids, and now they are essentially copying other for skills, ideas, and philosophies (the ability pruning is essentially making WoW feel closer to QWER MOBAs).

    LoL is where the innovation, fun, and great design is happening now, the King is still alive but people care about him less and less.

    Well deserved drop for being liars. I still remember that "Dragon soul won't happen again".

    OK Blizzard, do you know a thing that will never happen again? 10M subs. maybe 9M neither.

    It just blows my mind how they could let that huge gap happen AGAIN (and even longer than before), despite all the talk over the years about how they want to achieve the opposite.
    Same here, I was tempted to drop out after Dragon soul but decided to give it a chance. I don't see myself coming back, though for those who still enjoy it have fun.

    Honestly think mmo devs need to stop aiming for "WoW' numbers because none of them are gonna reach it without watering down their games for the people who are still in the mmorpg scene.

    Yeah, but that'll be true for all MMOs.

They are losing sub's because of the catering to casuals, they are making the game easier and easier, and the subs keep dropping, real easy to see, good players leave, baddies stay.

    Baddie still crying about the game being too hard, go practice, hell if you practiced as much as you cry/whine on here you might not be bad, well, not as bad.
    I bet you're fun to hang out and play video games with.

    I sure love these "hurr casuals ruined everything" when even "hardcore" pros hated Cataclysm's heroics (SFK took forever, and wasn't fun, and Deadmines was an even worse shit hole).

    Those complaints came from guys who like to talk tough on the forums. It was more fun playing with mediocre players in Wrath than good ones in Cata. The game was old and tired when ICC dragged on but people kept playing because it was fun and there were ways to advance a toon.

    WoD will be Cata 2.0. The curve's drop will get steeper if the new content isn't lightly tuned.

    Always the same during the summer months, everyone out for hols and good weather been the same since Vanilla, plus always goes quite a couple or so months before an expansion. there does seems a bit of a downward trend but wont be clear till Warlords launches then we will know how many came back.

    I guess with WoD they will get back 1 million - but WoW will continue to decline. Old game is old.
    The graphics are being updated continually, ex: New Character Models, Darker Nights etc.

    WoW isn't all about new concepts or themes, it's about classic archetypes that fit the Holy Trinity gameplay style of Warcraft.

    Hah... "old days from WotLK".

    If you didn't play pre-release invite only alpha, you can't consider them the "old days".

    Speaking only on my opinion and personal 10 years of playing WoW and closed beta of it: WoW was once a great game, with alot to it, more involved community, less complaining, and more involved dev's.

    Problems that plague WoW are the constant lore flubs, the changing it on a whim and to suit the very near sighted wow dev's who need to make quick content to appease the masses, in which only is counter-intuitive and hurtful to the game and community as a whole.

    The dev's used to have more of a solid stance against the community and didn't bow to every poster who complained about something. And for those who say Hardcore people don't complain, you would be incorrect. As a officer who was in a top 5 U.S. raiding guild for the better part of 10 years, we complained plenty. But we did so without trolling, flaming, and actually not just complaining but offering some sort of solution. Its better to say hey X and y is broken and then offer how to fix the problem to make it solvable and prosperous for both sides.

    Another problem is, most people who are invited into beta's and testing for blizzard anymore are just average joes who want to brag they got it. They offer little to zero feedback, and tons of complaints. They never think outside the box. I myself like to do so, because if I buff a mage to be unbeatable, then if I come across it on any characters, how will I beat in which I allowed to be buffed to much? Always flip the coin, and thats what made WoW into being awesome.

    The lack of content, lets be honest... the lore for MOP is lackluster. Thus why WOD is coming out, but with these lackluster changes to classes, in which limits them... who exactly gave them the feedback in which now most classes push 2-3 buttons? To me thats boring, great if you're limited in skill. Also the fact people killed garrosh for well over a year.. Blizzard said they would stop that.

    If you take a look at the numbers and dates, around where it stayed even or went up, content patches were made. Where you see drops was farming content. And where you see a surge, ironically right now before WOD.. is a expansion. Notice until the end of WOLK that didn't happen? Why? Numerous reasons that only myself can speculate on and from my observations.

    Did you really have to bump up this post, or are you trying to give people the impression that Subscriber numbers are ping-ponging from yesterday?
