    It's not tho. When you want to compare numbers dont just look at WOW:Shadowlands but also at WOW and compare searches etc. Dont just watch Asmongold videos and check stuff for yourself.

    I dont really see that. I see a lot of people that have turned away from the game because it objectively declined.

    I've been on both sides. I have dropped the game back in early Cata and was pretty sure I would never come back. I was wrong. The game is still in a very poor state and in some areas it continues to get worse. Blizzard has earned most of the critism that comes their way.

    I never got this lol. Google trends like that will tell you how many ppl Google that term. Its all then interpreted about how that could relate to subscribers. If anything imo, it tells how many newer ppl were interested. Cause like u said, ppl that play wow would go straight to wowhead
    Oh god you're right, I better start typing in world of warcraft in google every day. We gotta inflate this useless metric!

    The case for OW is quite odd. It came out of the gates really strong, and it seemed that for once Blizzard had finally managed to create something to go full esport with. Which was certainly impressive, considering that OW basically consists on what they could salvage out of the failed experiment that was "Titan". But after a few years, it does appear to have ran out of steam... I still find it odd though, especially considering Blizz's hardon towards anything that smells like esport. And what more promising than OW in that regard?

    The game is flawed. The game doesn't receive as much development input as it needs. But if your "criticism" is nothing more than some burning desire to see the game completely crash and burn along with everyone who plays it...then that's not healthy.

    Ultimately, why are you even here. #TouchGrass.
    Yep, it's pretty sad. There is such a strong entitlement culture in invested gamers. I do believe there are people who want to see the game crash and burn because they feel like their demands weren't answered. And it's not only in WoW, but I'd say it's more prevalent in MMOs and competitive online games in my experience. I guess any game that adapts to feedback regularly opens this pandora's box of entitlement from some players, who take it very personally (maybe because they've got nothing else going on in their lives, but that's just my guess).

    It's a way to vent frustration for something you cared about a lot changing into something you can't stand to even play anymore.

    I mean its probably unhealthy way to think but understandable.

    Steam?...You mean Money?.... The problem here is that Overwatch didnt sell, now THAT is the problem with that game. People play it for free and after some countries in Europe made "Loot crates" illegal and considered gambling, people realise that Overwatch was all about "Loot crates" and left the game to play COD or anything else, than paying tons of money on "crates".

    It was a poor design. And Blizzard didn't found a way to capitalize the game even more. No expansions, no subscription....No nothing.

    They only cow left to milk is WoW Classic and WoW Shadowlands. And i bet both of team are losing players because....Who actually is going to keep paying monthly subs to play a game? really, who?. With so many games out there that doesnt cost that much to play.
