    I expected a larger drop off than that, honestly.

    and lol @ the person saying FF14 is the best game on the market. Yeah, it only took them a decade of screwing up FF11 and then years of screwing up FF14 to turn it into a functional product. Good job, Square-Enix! Bright future ahead there, for sure.

    Mop lost a lot of people early game, but has done wonders at subscriber retention. The last we heard during cata, wow was at 9.1m subs. That was from the previous quarter, so its likely they were in the low 8m. I mean in a years time MoP has only lost wow 100k subs. Pretty impressive if you ask me for a 10 year old game. I expect subs to fall to just under 7m and then rise back up to 8.5-9m with WoD. WoW aint dead yet.

    I'll never understand these types of comments. What made you decide to post this, what are you hoping to get out of it? And if Wow is dying with 7.6 million subs I'm sure a lot of mmo's would like to be 'dying' right now.

    A small drop, smaller then I had expected. Regardless, people will draw their own conclusions from this Call.

    We live to fight another day.

    A bigger dip in Q2 perhaps, but that can be ridden out on our glorious march to expansion.

    I think that Blizz cant ignore 25% fall of subscribers or can they?

    Sad, sad Panda

    5.4 must have done something right.

WOW never lost 3M ´subscribers´.. what they lost were 3M people who were paying $1 per month.

    Also. ATVI beat estimates for earnings, tomorrow is going to be a good day!
    I tend to agree. WoW probably has around 3-4m loyal western players, and 1-2m loyal eastern players. I don't expect subs to fall below 4m any time in the next 6 or 7 years. I figure wow has 10 more years before ftp.

    not surprising considering we are stuck with no new content since 5.4 released til 6.0 comes out w/e that may be, its been 9 months so far of the same old content , and beta for WoD isn't even out yet so thats very discouraging.

    Hardly surprising considering we are at the end of MoP, the subs will rise when WoD hits

    Just a small drop of subs. I guess the boost to 90 served its purpose well.

    WoW losing 2 000 subs per day with Wod pre-order active.

    "cough"

    And then < 7m for Q2 because everyone will be bored as fuck of SoO (hell, I already am). Nothing to really see here.
