I'd still play with a mouse and keyboard most of the time though.
    Consoles sell the hardware intentionally at a loss to make it back with profit over games sold at higher pricing. Thats why the hardware is cheaper in comparison. The initial saving are gonna vanish just to pay the fee for online-play.

    Well tbh you're mostly right, however you probably didn't "follow" the discussion from the beginning.

    Who? I only came in here to see if there was a discussion about WoW being brought to consoles. I really can't see that going over well unless Blizzard intends to cut PvP support entirely.
    Why? I am right now above 1.8k in 3s and I've pvp'ed only with a controller lol (and this is the first xpac I am truly pvping). I have several friends who have got glad this way.

    I have bought like 3 years of xbox live for 60€ dude and have game pass until the end of 2021...

    Got this from a christmas sale.

    Usually 1 year of xbox live is 60€ alone and that is only for paid games. Free 2 play and I believe sub based games are excluded.

    EDIT: However you are right that they sell these console at a loss. This isn't entirely due to their paid services though. Microsoft makes up most of their money through game sales (as they always get a cut) and at this point game pass. Also the hardware costs aren't as expensive to them as they have exclusive deals with AMD. Looking at their latest quarterly reports and the whole controversy of wanting to make xbox live more expensive, it seems like Xbox live gold isn't bringing in them the money they used to.

    You're the biggest manchild on MMOC and this says a lot. I've never seen anyone so far who was afraid to click on the "Reply" button and try to defend his arguments. Don't worry mate, I see your posts even when you're not replying to me lol.

    Either way, all you've BS arguments have been disproven and everyone made fun of you already, so it's time to stop for me. Live in denial if you want then, but WoW is doing better than in the last 10 years and it's not because of Classic.

    Alternative facts I guess?

    Well, it's Acti-Blizz users. I don't think they have many services themselves. Still, i think somebody forgot a "million" there.

    Very unpredictable. People go in a mental fit discussion about what xpac was best, what xpac had highest sub numbers and wether classic was/is a success or not.

    Why does it matter so much to you? Would anything change for you if wow failed? Or has huge success? If wow crashed and burned tomorrow, how would that affect you? if it continues to have huge success the next 10+ years, would you get mad about it? if so, why?

    Why does it even matter? I mean, if you hate the game, you wouldnt keep playing it just because 10+ mill people do? Would you quit playing wow if you loved it alot but it had 100k players only?

    Millions play candy crush every day and I have zero understanding of why the give a shit about that game. But people apparently do like playing it. Why should I spend my time screaming at people that do? Dont get it.

    Suppose it works for slow classes and healers in particular that don't need to have precise control of their direction. I'd like to see a rogue doing this though.

    Blizzard financial calls say other wise

    https://investor.activision.com/stat...f-e10a1c0119b9

    as of 10/2010 WOTLK had 12mil+ subscribers

    https://investor.activision.com/stat...5-f1974324af8a

    Weeks after Cata launched they said they still had 12million + subscribers. If they had record subs they would have touted it but they never did.

    WoW Classic supported half of all WoW subs. I personally disliked Classic and didn't play much past max but the amount of people who actively hate it because it's popular is astounding.

    OT: Gaming is dead as fuck from a quality standpoint, they've finally managed to breed a generation of gamers who will eat the most broken, overly-monetized piles of junk and smile asking for more. Especially if people say how broken and overly monetized because they have tied their entire existence, their image and personality to a gaming studio.

    Most retail servers would be dead to if not for cross realm.

    Mounts, Pets other bullshit. Most likely heading for some sort of Pay to win or more likely freemium pay for convenience model. IE, Bag Space and EXP boosts. The games dead from a quality standpoint but as long as Time Played is high, people here will be happy (For some reason?)

    I entered the topic thinking it will be a conversation about possible console ports or new IPs. Instead I see the same old ramble that is in every thread of the kind.
    It is just them trying to troll but not doing it very elegantly. Shit gets tiring at this point and it would be better off to just ban those people. We already dealt with a shitload of Classic vs. Retail a long time ago and that is far behind us now, time to move the hell on.

    The funniest thing in the these investor calls is seeing WoW being successful and these boards doing some olympic level mental gymnastics to prove that actually no, WOW IS DYING!
