WoW Loses 1.1 Million Subscribers, Down to 9.1 Million

I was expecting a drop, but that is pretty hefty.

I hope Blizzard learns eight-month content lulls are a bad idea.

They most probably won't, I'm sure we'll see a new annual pass for the next expansion, whatever we end up getting I'm not sure

Actually most of the losses were from China, Taiwan and Korea, while US and EU stayed pretty much stable. GW2 will surely draw in a lot of players and the benefit of this will be that Blizzard probably copy-cats some of the good concepts from GW2. Win Win situation.

And the best is that no matter how much WoW copies from other games. WoW 'nerds/fanboys' will always think that Blizzard invented everything while everyone else copies.

I honestly hoped it was like 5m subscribers. Send them a message. I know I'm not active right now.

I don't stand against the crowd, I stand with the truth.

Not to mention, AJ isn't the crowd. It's a small percent of the WoW playerbase. The crowd are those LFR/T1 geared people who you can meet in Goldshire, who will spam xDDD and crap every time you say something that makes sense.

If you actually read the article, you'll see that there was a massive rise in total battle.net users.  Diablo 3 caused this loss if anything.

Do you work for blizzard? Because that's some pretty good spin. Of course there is going to be a rise in Battle.net users when an ENTIRELY NEW GAME IS RELEASED ^.^

Nope, I quit WoW one year ago and never even wanted to go back. Nice try though.
