    can you should your math ? because if Q1 repeats itself, it won't happen too many times. in fact it'd take until end of 2014...

    We are in 2013, not 2009

    Got hacked about 5x in a one years time back around 2011, called them, chnged passwards..

    Gave up because the GAME WENT TO CRAP ANYWAY !

    9 million my butt hole, repeat after me " Marketing "

      Not sure I'd mention that to anybody. You get hacked when you do stupid things like respond to fake e-mails or practice crappy internet security or type your password in places it doesn't belong. Played for six years and never had my account compromised once. Five times in one year is just irresponsible.

    No they probably just went looking for one that isn't 9 years old.

    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. 

    Games that are not released here in the states?  Go look up games that are being localized.  Archeage being one of them, and many more are in the works.  Many also have action combat which seems to be a new trend in MMOs.

    Boring game is boring and people are quitting in droves. Yawn, could see it coming from a mile away when MoP details were released.

    Never played it and I dread the day when people start reminiscing about the good old days in WoW,  much like they do with UO SWG and DoAc.

    Nice :). Now they have 8.3 mil +1. I subscribed again. I would like to play some other mmo beside Eve and WOW but there is nothing worth to play

    Where the hell do you people get your sub numbers from? 

    One place i read WoW was down to 7 million subs from its peak around Wrath of the Lich King of 11-12 million.

    Now they have 8 million subs and only lost 2 million?

    There is a huge difference between a game losing 2 out of the 10 million players and the game losing 4-5 out of the 11-12 million players(40% of peak base)

    Is this all nothing but a bunch of people just speculating on information they have no idea about?

    You do know they HAVE around 8.3 million subs, right? image

    That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

    Honestly, who gives a shit? They still have more subs than any other mmorpg on the market by far. Population, this game has it

    Killing dragons is my shit

    Activision Blizzard's financial report.


    The 7 million figure is a guess(no official numbers were released) from when WoW was temporarily banned in China.

    How the people running WoW feel:

     

    Let it be news when / if it's ever down to 1 million or less. Right now it's not a big deal.

    If you think it will keep falling at the same pace I think you are going to be disappointed.

    They lost 1 million ++ subs within 3 month

    1 million ++ players = Kotick bonus getting lesser.

    Some of Blizz devs will get fired for it.

     

    Pardon my English as it is not my 1st language :)

    You realize even with the losses the company set record earnings right?

  • zimboy69zimboy69 chicargo, FLPosts: 378Member Uncommon

    blizzard are fools

    they had a mmo which on average must have been bringing in  roughly 60 million pounds a month for the last 10 years

    a lot of mmos wont even see 60 million  in the life time of the game

     

    why blizzard weren't  investing more in to content is a crime

    its not like they couldn't afford it

    they should have had content updates monthly they could have afforded  12 teams to produce a content up date once a year

    they had time and money to do this

    imagine a wow with a free expansion pack worth of content a month

    no one would have left they could also of got rid of all the grinding and  dailies  and everything players found boring

    and today we wouldn't be talking about blizzard losing customers we would have been talking about the 30 million subscribers

    Must not read what players and ex-players post about then. There are a somewhat large majority of posts are already about the good 'ole days.

    Personally I think the game went downhill from about the time they introduced the Arena. Not just because of that. But thats about when they really started with the design mentality of substituting rep grinding for actual playable content.

    In other words they got lazy, and just made people grind rep thru dailies and what-not so they didnt have to spend real design dollars on new quests, areas, NPCs, loot drops, randoms and so on.

    The Isle of Quel'danas is the pinnacle and start of Blizzards lazy game design. And Im glad its coming back to bite them in the ass.

    I think it has to be stated once again:

    WoW is down TO 8.3m subs, not down 8.3m. There's a world of difference.

     

    That said, it still goes extremely strong.

    It's far from dead, it does however need a overhaul to give the game a little more consistency.
