wow reached 11.5 million and stopped growing 5 years ago in 2008

http://www.vg247.com/2010/02/10/morhaime-confirms-the-unthinkable-wows-stopped-growing/

WOW briefly reached a new peak of 12 million when Cata released but lost 10% of their playerbase soon after

regardless, WOW is a behemoth and seems to be holding steady at 9-10 million

wow....you can always count on Nadia to bring the facts!.... with links!...nice work

If you can't kill it, don't make it mad.

Maybe if I had played a good class I would have stayed but this isn't really the question.

What has it got now?

How do you feel about WoW?

How do you feel about that WoW has peaked?

 

At its peak, if I remember right it was north of 13 million.  Its now down to around nine and still declining.  Thats only to be expected, given how long the games been out, and the influence of Ghostcrawler... ^^

But just about every game company out there would be VERY happy to have even half of that.

Now? I went back for Panda land, and ran two of my nine 85's up to 90 (warrior and rogue).  I may eventually do that with my 85 hunter, but I'm in no hurry.  I started in late beta, and have had a lot of fun with all of the expansions, but I suspect I'm reaching my burn out point.

I was less than impressed with the new monk class. If I want a tank, I use my protect warrior. If I want dps, I use my rogue, arms warrior, DK or hunter.  I've never had any interest in healing, so thats a non starter.

As for the other, as has been true for years now, the only threat to WoW is Blizzard and/or Ghostcrawler... ^^  It will be with us for years and years I suspect. Slowly losing ground, but always keeping more than enough to be profitable.

I enjoy the story and lore in WoW.  There is actually a big overarching story in MoP.  It's not spelt directly out like in BC or vanilla.  You're not actually the main character of the story in MoP.  The main characters in MoP are Anduin, Garrosh, Vol'jin (when he returns to become warchief and reuinite the troll tribes under the horde banner! oops forgot, spoiler alert lol), and Taran Zhu.

 

It used to be your character was the epic hero that was the protaganist.  You made history, defending azeroth from the likes of the firelord Ragnaros and the evil dragonkin of Onyxia.  Then you were sent out to explore beyond the dark portal, where you found out that Illidan was planning on destroying everything.  Once again you put on your hero pants, and put him in his place...6 feet under.  Wrath of the Lich King is where it started to shift.  Although you were a main character, there were NPCs, who were also main characters, like Tirion.  He's the one that actually saved your butt and called upon arthas' father to ressurect your slain carcass to defeat his son.  Another NPC main character, Bolvar, then takes on the responsibility of holding the reins of the scourge.

 

In Cataclysm, you are just another hero in a long list of heroes.  The main story is all about Thrall and Aggra, and the dragonflights.  You were no longer the main hero in the story, instead you sorta play like Thrall's right hand man.  This shift is what alot of people didn't like about cataclysm, whether they know it or not.  You're no longer the main protaganist in the story of Warcraft.

 

All MMOs eventually hit a wall and start to slowly slide down it.  Some hit the wall sooner than others, but it took WoW a long time to get to it.  Some slide down that wall faster than others, but WoW is going down the wall very slowly.  It will still be a long time before it is "dead" but everything ends eventually.

LMAO many gamers feel that the next big MMO will be the next WoW killer but to tell the truth WoW will be its own WoW killer and no other MMO will not kill WoW so to answer your question of course a 9 year old game will be on a decline.

When a Kender says "oops!"; its already too late.

I quit WoW sometime during Cata.  Have not desire to go back.

WoW is in decline, ableit, a slight decline.  This can be attributed to the simplification of the game (IMHO)

Besides, no matter how much polish Blizzard gives the game, a polished turd is still a turd.

They will keep making WoW more and more casual to keep the numbers up. Real gamers will have moved on while WoW will be populated with 10 million toddlers and arthritic grannies.

Don't see the point in fretting over total sub numbers. As long as there is a server with at least 50k people on your chosen faction (Horde or Alliance), you're golden. That is all you need... a large portion of the servers are much MUCH MUCH higher population than that.

Yes, because people with rape in their username tend to scream maturity and skill. I agree with what you're saying, but you're not one to talk.

What exactly is a "REAL" gamer? Is it someone who enjoys the same gamestyle as yourself? Thus everyone else isn't a real gamer?

 

What if real gamers were those that like everything you hate and you discovered all THOSE people are the REAL gamers and you are just some Bitter Old Vet with no games to play? Wouldn't that make you unhappy to not be included in the ultra-cool gaming group of REAL gamers?

 

WoW isn't dying anytime soon. REAL gamers continue to play.

Great post 

 

WoW has certainly peaked, it is still a great game, I maintain a sub playing it on and off, I think it is starting to show its age now, they have tried to make it interesting with phasing and a bunch of other features, but I think its about time they announce their next gen MMO and start getting plans for a new world of warcraft iteration if they havent started already which im sure will happen ( most profitable game IP of all time?! ).
