    Well my realm is still layered because there's too many players. Interesting to see if the queue comes back now that they're removing layering. Oh and it's PvE.

    Well, what a silly thing to say with absolutely NOTHING to support it from a numbers perspective.

    What they reported, at least how it reads to me, is that it was incredibly popular during that quarterly release and that there is an active community still playing it. This isn't me being a doomsayer, but a lot of you clearly read the words of the released statement with 100% conviction that it fits your narrative completely. Without actual hard numbers you would be borderline retarded to assume anything regarding the health of classic.

    What we do know is that it had a lot of hype and a lot of people subscribed for that quarter. What we don't know is how many people were subscribed prior to classic releasing, and what the numbers look like now. If live had say 3 million people playing it a month before classic, and 2.5 million people subscribed before that quarterly report, this still says nothing concrete about the two months after classic released. What we can assume is that retail subscription numbers are probably pretty static at this point (prior to classic, it was like 2 1/2 months into it's patch cycle, which is about a few weeks past the point that people taper off) and that any notable subscription loss at this point would be a result of people losing interest in classic (people certainly weren't subscribing in mass in middle to late August because of 8.2). All we know is that they stated it's well above pre-classic subscription numbers, and that's all we're ever going to know because they don't release exact numbers.

    My numbers above are entirely made up, but assume that the 2.5 million I cited was true. From that you would have to guess what "well above" would mean using said number.

    I like classic a lot, I really do, but the fanaticism from select individuals here and in-game is pretty retarded. It feels like some people aren't bound in reality, and you're easily the worst part of the community (again, whether it's here or in-game). You see what you want to see though.
    No need to panic. It's all simple and easy. Classic was released for existing "vanilla" fan base with hope to attract some retail players. It's natural that those numbers will never bound to stay that high. True hard fans will stay loyal to classic, others just comes and goes away.

    Yep, it certainly is. It's gonna be a real wakeup call when people realize they're gonna get camped 24/7 with honor coming out

    Never had that kind of experience. Never played WoW back in these days, when leveling took days. Amd funnily enough, I enjoy it woithout being a diehard. I am not bored either. I enjoy being able to skill up my professions in pair with leveling. I enjoy the community. I enjoy the world when I can feel endangered. I enjoy the need to utilize my spells. I enjoy the need for consumables and thinking twice before making a decision.

    I guess you're the opposer of Classic experience so you came here to whine a bit I won't say it's the best I have seen, but the concept of a real, vivid and difficult world buys me. It also gave me an idea of how WoW got oversimplified, so that many aspects if the game became meaningless, unfortunately.

    That applies to classic too, farming MC until your eyes bleed out (consdering the snorefest it is), so your argument is completely retarded.

    so if you are reading this everywhere you must have some links to examples?

    Stop and actually think for a moment.

    The largest quarterly sub increase in franchise history. Think about that, and ask yourself again if it’s reasonable to say that this information is COMPLETELY orthogonal to an estimate of the current classic player base (your claim).

    I would imagine it still has more people playing than BfA. So if Classic is dead/dying what does that say about retail? Go try Classic sometime, you can barely find mobs to kill because there's so many people playing.

    Why does everything on this shitty forum have to be a pissing contest by people who have to find some reason to justify their like or dislike for something. I wish I genuinely had such an uneventiful life to whine about such an irrelevant subject.

    It literally doesn't matter.

    I know!

    Neither is changing their mind, and it is *almost* as if it is two totally differinggames played by differing types of people. Neither is a better or worse player for it, and you enjoy what you enjoy.

    Peeps need to get over it, already and just accept things and move on.
    Yeah. It's like that xbox vs playstation shit all over again, just this time it's the same company lul

    You are retarded in that case as you obviously missed the point that I said BOTH WoW are in decline with nothing to do, so wtf are you all about? Did I even claim Classic is more content than BFA?

    Wait, I have a solution for you!

    Dunno, I uninstalled it 1 month ago because it was a boring experience, but many of my friend are still playing it.

    And honestly, the game wasn’t even that good. Broken raids. Broken leveling. Broken quests. Broken story. Broken specs.

    But here we are.

    Fuck my life.
    Imagine being that mad about '15yo dead game'.
