    I think my post is quite easy to read.

    First post says Classic subs are "grim" right now

    then my post happened

    People care about sub numbers to much.

    Sheep really need sub numbers to reaffirm your enjoyment of a recreational video game?

    It's sad.

    It doesnt say retail subs are though.....Are you saying retail is a "sandpark" mmo, and classic is not?

    Yep.

    Didn't stop people from quoting that shit as fact for months and months though. People sure do love numbers when they agree with what they're saying.

    Current count of Full/High pop WoW servers: 85 in EU alone. That's an increase from the last count.

    This story makes absolutly no sense since if this data was linked on the internet, it doesnt matter if they closed the thread it would be easy to find right now.

    Like i said in a previous post, i really dont understand people obsession with it. I dont really see too much of it from the retail fanbois, but a small segment of the classic fans are OBSESSED with the numbers.

    According to OP, the data was NOT leaked - only information that a leak had occurred - its pretty clearly outlined in the OP to be fair.

    Who else is going to discuss game design up in this hell hole?
    You think too highly of yourself and are an attention hound. Why else would you make a thread about quitting the forums instead of just quitting and why else are you still here if you supposedly quit? Also "Only a MMORPG connoisseur such as myself understands this kind of things"? "The intellectual level of MMO-C posts has decreased since my absence"? Again you are a bit full of yourself.

    Lol, you get used to it - she is like this in every thread, but the good news is she runs out of puff really quickly, calls everyone names, and leaves/gets banned.

    OT: I think it would be at most "interesting" to see the breakdown, but i do think it would create an absolute shitstorm either way it shaped up.

    I don't think I'll ever understand why people make fake leak threads. Is it attention? Nah, there's worse/better ways to do that.

    It's funny you pretend not to care, but Im sure if I looked, I could find you in any number of threads about classic subs. Youre habitually in these threads.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    No, they're saying minor niche games are the future of the genre. Somehow. Naturally, it's total bupkis.

    I have no clue what the point of "leaking" such info would be, other than maaaaybe telling people that root for Classic versions of each expansion pack that they just won't be happening. You want TBC, Wrath or even Pandaria servers? Too bad.

    There is a gaping chasm between OBSSESSED with the numbers, and interested in them. For example, I wouldnt have a clue who you are, nor do i care. And yet you know me by name and seem to have a running history of my posts in your head? Thats obsession.

    I have said i would be interested.

    Ah right, I understand now. Browser based f2p and mobile mmos are the future - gotcha.

    Themepark is too much work...only big companies can keep up the insatiable hunger of the fans.
    You are here on MMO-C, how long does it take for threads to appear asking for new content?
    Less than a month from my experience

    Is the flaw of the "themepark"

    Sandbox with a mix of themepark....why not the future?

    Is that why wow has barely broken even over its 15 years? Just a flawed design, right?

    If they announce TBC servers, Classic to them is a success.

    You really need to grab your monocle to engage on a conversation with me...you are failing at it on all levels (>_<)

    Im saying is flawed for the party developing the MMO.
    The company

    We? The consumers? We just "NOM NOM NOM NOM" eat up the millions of dollars Blizzard wastes on development in a month and ask for more

    The story goes their Sub count has been leaked by accident (not a disgruntled employee or anything dramatic like that), including a very in-depth breakdown of the splits between accounts that only play Classic, only play Retail, and those that play both. Her source informed her, without mentioning specific numbers, that it painted quite a grim picture for Classic outside the initial 6-8 weeks.
    From what she said, Blizzard are aware of the leak, and are seriously considering releasing the information themselves rather than it coming from an unknown source.
    If the leak is true, what do you expect it to reveal?
    I am of the position that any 'leak' is fake until corroborated.

    If that was true, nobody would be doing it. Your argument is nonsensical and self-defeating.

    Meanwhile, all those sandbox MMOs are stuck in niche existences, meaning their concept doesn't work any better, and generally far worse. Sandbox players are to small a group to get big.
