The Pub at MMORPG.COM  » How many subs do you think WoW could lose to GW2 in the coming year .

OP  8/27/12 7:33:46 AM#1
I'm playing WoW at the moment as I'm away from home and only have access to a laptop which will play certain games . I have played the GW2 beta and I was impressed by what I've seen . In WoW in game chat the talk about GW2 is mostly possative and many friends say they will play both but some are considering giving up WoW for GW2 if they are still enjoying it as much when their current subs run out . Everyone I know personally in WoW is intending on playing gw2 at some point in the next few months . MOP seems to be getting mixed reactions by many people I know to say the least . Given WoW has recently seen rather large loses again I wonder what the impact may be to WoW numbers in the coming year . My guess is at least another loss of a million subs and I think Blizzard will respond by a vastly increased free2play ascpect to WoW within 12 months at which point we will never see any official subscriptoin numbers again simply income stats .

Not many as GW2 isn't a long term investment game mnay players will finish the content and move on quite quickly.

Zero.    Who ever thinks GW2 is the next big thing really doesn't know a damn thing about MMO business.   The ones that think GW2 will slowly kill WoW are the same clowns that said SWTOR would kill WoW , and I for one always said TOR was garbage.  And looking at it today , I wasn't to far off my mark , a few yards away from the trash can.

Anyways , have a nice mindless discussion.

Yes, I have a question. When did you turn into a nutbar?

8/27/12 7:53:03 AM#9


@ OP

I don't think it's going to affect WoW drastically, as one poster stated 'WoW fans have blinders up". Players got a lot of time invested in WoW and the good percentage of playerbase will not leave it just because of that.

GW2 looks like players are having fun despite the prelaunch hiccups. Only time will tell if this game is a success or if it's just a downtime MMO from your main MMO of choice since their is no sub (I am still skeptical about B2P in general, when something is to good to be true, it usually is).

WoW has MoP coming out and it looks like it's on radar for most now since GW2 has arrived.

    I thought GW2 was supposed to have the greatest end game ever that would last until our dying day?

So "they" say, so they say.

Remains to be seen how well the long term appeal will be with out a steady stream of progression for people to chase.

I think wow may loose another million this year it depends on how they krank out content after MOP hits.  I don't think GW2 is the only factor that will pull people away, I believe the drive for new mmo fps's will also inject "fun" back into gaming.

And posts like this always crop up at the start of an mmo lets see 3/6 months down the road shall we.

Why would anyone have to unsub to ANY mmo they're subbed to? Did ANet introduce a subscription when I wasn't looking? Look at it this way:

I have GW2 bought and installed on my PC right now along with a dozen of other F2P games and because I don't have to pay 1 red cent for any of them I'm also currently subbed to TSW. Just the other day someone posted that the world first level 80 was accomplished in 2 days. Do you think I'm in a rush to play GW2 right now? I still have things to do in GW1 to boost my HoM score yet alone dive headfirst in a B2P title built around taking your time.

As for your OP. Blizzard will lose the same amount of subs they did when D3 was released.

Not many IMHO. I mean, every mmorpg takes something from WOW. Rift, TERA, SWTOR, etc, they all took a few of them, but only a small part.

It will also mainly come down to how long GW2's content lasts, how fun it remains, how fast the updates, endgame and alot of other factors like every other mmo.

MOP will also influence when it releases of course.

WoW will lose more subs to pandas than they will to GW2

The above is my personal opinion. Anyone displaying a view contrary to my opinion is obviously WRONG and should STHU. (neener neener)

Probably very very few. The game's a one time payment so people could do both at the same time. People completely in love with GW2 might cancel their sub for a bit to avoid paying for a game they aren't playing but something tells me people will go back. Granted many people will leave WoW because its becoming garbage but it won't lose much cause of GW2 alone.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

8/27/12 8:20:18 AM#20

Zero,  yea that is right zero.   The reason is the folks who play wow are a different demographic.  In fact I not seen any drop off in any of the games I play.  It had zero relation in swtor, eq2, and tsw.  I still see the same old folks.

GW2 has a different type of player than the other games so they are not going to get your typical wow type players.  Just saying, folks want gw2 to kill wow, it not going to happen, only blizzard can do that to themselves.
