WoW Lost 600k Subscribers
Posted 10 May 2011 - 08:03 PM
The company as a whole is doing fine, they will continue to do fine

a) subscriber base was taken away
pve content is all cleared and everyones waiting on 4.2 and
c) pvp season is about to end
theyre not going to spin numbers like that: also, if it was 300k more, they still have over 11 million

Negative momentum is detrimental in polictics, polls, FOTMs and of course in business. When you have a small exodus on your hands, its best to downlplay it as much as possible.
Some more likely estimates put the number closer to 900k.
I just laughed. What possible methods could you use as "estimate" if you don't have inside knowledge.
Its usually not smart for business to spring their numbers to fool their stakeholders, especially when their methods of determining what counts as subscribers are so clearly stated. It would be fraud

It reached a point where you either play plate, counterstrike style hit the guy you can hit until he dies to unhealable damage or you try to play something with a resto shaman.
Anything else you get frustrated by losing to worse players on regular basis.
Now you may think 600k is insignificant but remember, this is a product that showed profit every year.
Almost all of my friends login to the game, jump in Durotar or whatever, can't find anything to do and log off. These people, including myself, are logging in strictly out of habit and we are very close to quitting. It's reasonable to assume that a lot of people are in the same spot, so wow is due to lose many more.

I'm sure some are pvpers because the state of the pvp game is why I unsubbed months ago.

Rofl PvE is easy as fuck still atm, we cleared it all at the start of the expansion with a group of PvPers..
I can imagine though, knowing the braindead majority playing this game.

In all honesty I'm not surprised they are losing subscriptions. If a devoted player like me loses interest in the game then Im sure Joe Average is going to lose interest as well.
This really should give blizzard a good shake and get them to rethink how much effort they put into the game.
A quick look at blizzards current crappy gear and art vs a free games should be a good indication to their laziness:
The druid helm looks like its got one of those mustaches people draw on paintings as jokes. While Lord Mordekaiser looks like a BAMF

I agree with your post but this comparison is a bit shitty ;<

WoW is something you play for the lols. If you take the game for what it is, you can actually enjoy it a lot more.
Also, looking for a holy paladin for 3s. Hit me up!
