    Classic Vs Retail

    So just wanting to get opinions here, a lot of people keep saying Classic has more subs than Retail, or vise versa, there was an article posted which you can read here. https://www.battlechat.co/2019/09/wo...R3FvJ6ZYMBO5A0

    in the article is says "Blizzards main income for World of Warcraft still comes from paid services like mounts and race changes. Which is also a reason why BFA scored better than Classic." Of course BFA Scored better because it is 1 sub, you have to sub to the main game which is retail to play classic, classic is free with that sub, so how can people say classic is beating retail when it is all under the same roof?

    Pretty much also that part in the article made me laugh because I doubt their main income for the game is mounts and such, they still have a lot of people subbed which is where they get 90% of their money I would assume.

    "Game vs. Game" type threads, as well as debates about subscription metrics, aren't really conducive to constructive debate or discussion. Closing this.
    "The finest line of poetry ever uttered in the history of this whole damn country was said by Canada Bill Jones in 1853, in Baton Rouge, while he was being robbed blind in a crooked game of Faro. George Devol, who was, like Canada Bill, not a man who was averse to fleecing the odd sucker, drew Bill aside and asked him if he couldn't see that the game was crooked. And Canada Bill sighed, and shrugged his shoulders, and said, 'I know. But it's the only game in town.' And he went back to the game." -- Neil Gaiman, "American Gods"
