    And it took them 10 years, kinda impressing since other games have that loss their first year.

    I did the Annual Pass last time and will never, ever do it again.

    Basically it was a year of no content.

    Cyclical.

    Not really in my opinion but I just thought I'd throw that out there since the devs did so easily last numbers report.

    Looks like 6.2 did nothing and everything Blizzard has done has completely failed. Time for a total change in direction. Get back to what worked.

    Wow, did not expect it to be that big of a drop. I expected 1 mil TOPS, and that was without 6.2 bringing some people back.

    Holy crap. If we get nothing for a year this game is dead.

    Now I'm kinda worried.

    Holy shit that is gonna hurt. Then again im not suprised.

    Also, on topic of token, the thing is that rather than bringing alot of players who were unsubbed, it just made subbed players unsub and buy token instead.

    Expected. Not really worried though.

    WoW subs are still nearly 7x above break even point.

    Next expansion will make or break the future though.

    Subs for wow are down 1.5m and the earnings are up overall.

    I always thought this was a 'fan' site. A place made by people who enjoyed the game, for people who enjoyed the game. Instead it has become a place where every word uttered by Blizzard is twisted and warped into something to suit someone's bitter, sorry little agenda. Its sad to see just how far things have fallen here. Whatever mistakes Blizzard has made with WoW these past few years (and they've made many) pale in comparison with the cesspool of toxic shit that this place has turned into.

    And I've officially had my fill of it. To those of you who aren't petty and childish, take care and I wish you well in your endeavors.

    From 10 million to 5.6 million in 7 months. Savage.

    Q3 should be interesting.

  14. #414
    Wow... that's.... no less than they deserve.

    Neglect and greed will get your product nowhere.

    I'm glad the players are finally starting to talk with the wallets. F2P coming soon™.

    That doesn't change the fact the game lost HALF it's playerbase that it had at launch in 9 months time. No one sits in board meetings and goes "yknow lets only make 10 million dollars instead of 100 million this year"

    Exclamation

    Official number 5.6M, and no change to the subscriber definition:

    Subscriber Definition: World of Warcraft subscribers include individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access. Internet Game Room players who have accessed the game over the last thirty days are also counted as subscribers. The above definition excludes all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or cancelled subscriptions, and expired prepaid cards. Subscribers in licensees' territories are defined along the same rules.
    So it's only "paid a subscription fee" unless using gold counts, so token games don't enter into it if they're telling the truth.

    I don't think they can claim that at this time. Losing close to 5 mil customers in ~6 months is pretty horrendous.

    Tokens are counted towards sub amounts on the account where the gametime is consumed on.
