    People have been claiming that WoW have been dying since 2004, which is what he ment by his post. We've seen this kind of posts ever since then.

    Yeah if what seleri posted doesn't say everything that needs to be said then idk what will.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

    Hey I'm not saying that WoW is dead. I'm just saying that it has been circling the drain meaning it slowly bleeds users. The number of customers doesn't necessarily have a huge impact on me (I don't even have an active sub right now anyway). However the more active users there are the more resources Blizzard has available to expand the product. At least that should be the basic approach.

    In the end every game will die at some point. The question is always what you do to stop or at least slow down the bleeding. In my opinion the increase of "speed" that you have in game didn't help this process overall.

    No wonder you've lost millions of subscribers, And rapidly heading to the bottom of the best mmo list.
    MODs...Dont forget to delete this post like you do the others, because it makes you uncomfortable to read the truth, maybe this time you can top the 1FPS that classic had
    WoW isn't dying. You are dying. You have precious few years left in your life. Why are you wasting them on something you don't like?

    The only truth is that idiot naysayers with new accounts made specifically to troll people are fucking annoying. That is why shitposts like this get deleted!

    Once upon a time, there was an MMO plagued with problems, published by a well known studio with a reputation for quality in smaller game spaces. This MMO grew in popularity and with such speed that it couldn't help but grow at a pace where quality couldn't keep up. Despite problems plaguing the game since launch, problems that never got better even with many expansions launched since, players ultimately created cohesive groups by banding with each other and approaching the game from an intimate place to share wonderful social experiences.

    This is the Unicorn that people refer to when they remember Wow fondly, claim it's dead, or tell their real life friends why they quit. Unfortunately, it's not the game that has died or that has lost its soul... it's people, who have lost their play group, realizing there isn't much reason to play without one. There's something to be said about playing a game for others that cannot be said about playing alone...

    Sharing the experience is everything.


    Instead of wishing for Blizzard to bring the game back to whatever place gave you a home, figure out how to create a home wherever you find yourself playing a game you enjoy. I loved Wow because it was deep, interesting, and vast. There were so many angles to explore it reminded me of life on a number of levels, arming me with tools for success I didn't have before I played Wow. All the same, those things I once enjoyed about Wow, stopped existing in the way I enjoyed them.

    So I moved on. Wow is still here, chugging along broken haphazardly. But I hear they are bringing classic back, so that's nice.

    I dunno, voodoo love-doctor services are probably a good deal more useful than people shitposting about wow dying

    If you want a real good laugh, take a trip to the WoW forums on October 2nd, 2003 (before the game even launched).

    Notice the topic near the bottom. "Why Blizzard Will Fail in the MMORPG Market".

    "wow is dying". First time I have seen that. or maybe not? People have been making threads like yours since BC was released.

    Cant wait for new threads like this halfway into 9.0
