WoW Loses 600K Subscribers in the 2013 Second Quarter

In the latest earnings release, World of Warcraft is down to 7.7 Mio subscribers. This means a total loss of 600,000 subscribers from 8.3 Mio last quarter. WoW has definitely seen better days, as at one point they had over 12 million subscribers, and since then that number is rapidly dwindling.

Activision Blizzard Purchases Shares From Vivendi

Activision Blizzard is purchasing 429 Mio shares from Vivendi for $5.8 billion. The purchase is financed with $1.2 billion of cash that was on hand and $4.6 billion of debt proceeds, leaving them with a $1.4 billion of net debt at the end of the deal in September 2013. With huge subscriber drops each quarter, it was not the best time to completely separate from Vivendi.

Countermeasures

The launch of an in-game store by Blizzard in 5.4 which is supposed to offer convenience items, such as the Elixir increasing XP in Asian regions.

Transmog items added to the Blizzard Store. Earlier this month, helmets were added to the online store for $15 each.

It's time to introduce another Annual Pass, if Blizzard wants to lose less subscribers next quarter. Things look grim for Blizzard. Despite the vastly improved game quality in Mists of Pandaria they still arent able to counter their subscriber drops as more and more players stop playing the game, growing tired of the same content. We know that Titan development was restarted from scratch, this means WoW will need to endure a bit longer.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens to WoW’s subscriber rate once Blizzard implements in-game microtransactions. After all, it’s very possible that they could end up driving the subscriber numbers down faster, but at the same time if the people who stay start buying items in-game then it’s possible that those transactions could offset the loss of revenue from the subscribers. Only time will tell.Click read more for all the  game details!

So what should you do if you want to know the latest news about guild wars 2?It's surprising how many people who play Guild Wars 2 know so little about some of the best websites for a game they play countless hours of. In this list, we provide you with ten of the best –There are of course more than this, the fact is we only give you an indicator as to what websites worth GW2 players collecting.

Kill Ten Rats

Technically KTR (as it's more commonly known) covers much more than Guild Wars 2. Ravious however is a long time, staunch supporter of the game. Not only this, but he's a brilliant writer and his editorials are always topical and food for thought.

GW2Reddit

A busy, bustling community that is first for Guild Wars 2 news while also being great for discussions. If that wasn't good enough, they're actually a friendly bunch who are quick to help and support one another. Should you ever need anything answering about the game, or if you simply want to waste several hours reading through excellent topics, look no further.

GW2Stuff.com

An accurate and well presented event timer. With the ability to choose your server and overlay the graphics onto the game, it's a great support tool for farming events when you've achievements to complete or money to earn.

Dragonseason.com

Passionately run by Tilion in and out of game, it is a homage to the game at a truly fan level. With some excellent editorials, a busy forum and a ludicrously active twitter it's well worth visiting regularly.

GuildMag.com

With a beautiful website, an excellent focus on lore and passionately run by Ollannach, GuildMag is regularly worth visiting. What makes GuildMag stand out however, is their e-magazine that anyone can freely download. It's well worth reading.

Orrator.com

Visually stunning, niche and lovingly written, Orrator.com is a breath of fresh air against the miriad of sites out in cyber space. Simple and elegant in it's delivery of content.

Dulfy.net

I'm not sure Dulfy is a 'lone ranger' in the creation of all her content spanning multiple games, but it cannot be disputed that the guides produced are timely, accurate and most importantly, benefiting the communities they are aimed at. With an easily navigated website and optimal wording/image use, it's a great support network for anyone who doesn't want to spend time getting to grips with content.

GW2lfg.com

As the mandatory place to go when looking for a group (until ArenaNet implement their own), GW2lfg is ideal if you love to run dungeons or fractals.

GW2Spidy

Although I prefer GoldWars2 (unfortunately it requires a subscription to use) as an accurate tracker of all things Trading Post, you really can't got wrong with spidy. Updated often, while remaining a corner stone of many wheeler and dealers, it really is a must for anyone wanting to flip their way to a profit.

GW2Wiki

Where would many of us be without the Guild Wars 2 Wikipedia? Updated instantly by the community and a treasure trove of lore, statistics and information, I've lost count of the hours I've spent researching skills and traits. if you want to know more detailed information about the online game then check out
