    you feel sad for a game that after 10 years has 15x subs from the second subbed mmo? now thats something to laugh :)

    just for the record it has 8.3m subscribers. not that bad, right?

    the drop in subs is some 10% over a quarter - don't sound so bad now does it? ofc blizzard is going to lose big when they drop subs they have 20 times the number of players.

    Wow I thought they would be growing with every expansion. I would think they would be up to 16 million subscriptions by now. Maybe they should do a new expansion every 3-6 months?

    Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

    An ~9 year old MMO that loses players...omg that's something new XD
  • SithosSithos Sault Ste. Marie, ONPosts: 320Member Uncommon
    Every game has a shelf life. WoW exploded onto the MMO scene and as a matter of course has lost many players to the newer MMO's. Now having said that,any MMO that garner's 1/10th of the population that WoW has currently is considered a huge success. WoW may be losing players,but it'll be king for years yet.

    Most of the sub losses from last quarter were in China.

    Most of the sub losses from this quarter were in China.


    Im guessing China doesnt like the Chinese themed expansion.

    Might want to correct the title. WoW is not down 8.3 MM subs. It is down to 8.3 MM subs.

    2 million people just figured out that they don't like hamster wheels.

    Lol they're not losing any money - far from it. They're just profiting 25-30 percent less. Blizzard probably breaks even at the 1 million subscriber mark, give or take a couple hundred thousand. That's not even factoring in the length of time this profit margin has been maintained. If they're worried about that as a company then there's an underlying factor.

    MMORPGs are great to look forward to after a hard day of work, but heaven is the ultimate reward for those who live Christ-like.

    like what ?

     

    I havent heard of any of the newer mmo's getting a massive surge of players...and being smaller, a small swell of only a few hundred thousand would be instantly recognised.

     

    only growing numbers i know of are in eve which is 10 years old.

    Only took Eve 10 years to get to half a million, and WoW still has 7.8 million more players.

    When you get hacked five times in a row, it's usually indicative that your computer has been compromised.  You will need to completely reinstall your operative system to get rid of the back door that registers every time you type in a new password.

    Antivirus and Firewalls do nothing to fight against the most dedicated hacker and back door programs that can easily be installed on a computer just by miss typing a single domain in your browser.  It doesn't not even have to ask, once you press enter and the domain is incorrect (or even if it's correct and that site is infected) it can be installed.

    In any customer service of any MMO they will likely recommend using a new computer or just completely having a fresh install of your operating system, followed by changing your password.  In addition, when it comes to WoW, getting the six dollar authenticator will also improve security immensely  Most of the "it doesn't work" tripe is propogated by the very hackers that don't want it, or people who have it and don't want everyone to get it because then they'll be worthwhile targets against as opposed to "not worth the effort" to hackers who still target people who don't have them.

     

    There was also a big scam way back whereby passwords and emails were compromised on gaming sites and cross referenced with WoW.  You'd be surprised how many use their MMO email and Password as their forum Email and password.  Even if it isn't the same password, the email tells them what their account name is right off.

     

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    I quit WOW about four years ago now. I have many fond memories of that game that I will remember forever, but not as many as Everquest. Since, I have tried about 7 or 8 other MMOs, but never found what I was looking for. I really am waiting for that right MMO with somewhat of the original EQ or WOW feel and community. I'm really crossing my fingers for EQ Next and Titan. I have my doubts though.

    Single player PC games.

    Console games.

    Any one of eighty blowzillion free to play MMORPGs.

    God forbid, maybe they went out looking for members of the opposite sex to annoy.

    Why assume they surged as a mass anywhere?

    had...at the end of March. By now it's less than that. Even Blizzard expects this to be the case.

    The 2 million subs were mostly from china.

    How many ppl on this site alone are ex wow players ? why is it so hard to believe people who quit wow now wouldn't go play another mmo ?

    Make sure to check out the FFXIV A Realm Reborn open beta when it comes out.  If you're looking for community then the already established servers are the way to go; the new ones will likely have people coming from WoW and others, wanting to just power level and worry about themselves.
