These threads always make me laugh.  Oh no, the game lost this many subs but still has more players than most of the competition combined...it's so dead!

 

Anyone who knows anything about MMOs will tell you that subs gradually go down (well for the good ones anyways), then they get a boost with new content or expansions, then they slowly fall again...I'm sure ANY developer would love to launch with half the subs WoW has after 10 years...

Nobody can escape the cracks of time. Blizzard doesn't need to change a thing.  The game is almost 10 years old.  Its already reached all the success it needs to.  Let it age in peace like Everquest and remain a fond memory to many of us.  And for the people that still play it and don't want to play a different mmo - good for them.  As long as they are still having fun, then that's perfectly fine.

well said statement, also keep in mind even if went down too 1 mill players, it still be making them money. an by then they just swap things around too cash in on those left playing. also if/when it hits that point, blizzard next MMO will be out an the cycle will continue.

No, from 12M to 7.7M means that 4.3 million people are unemployed and can't afford to pay for MMOs.  When they find work again, they will sub to WoW again. 

If WoW went down to 1M subs, then the next best MMO would have 1k subs, and everyone else would be playing F2P for free.

Those of you who think WoW is Dying are the same ilk that didn't believe in Global Warming.  BTW the reason the Republicans denied GW was because they feared that the Oil and Coal companies would be held financially responsible for it.

Keep ringing that bell, because WoW is sticking around for another 10 years.  The last WoW gamer hasn't been born yet.  Your kids, grandkids, and great grandkids will play WoW, before anything else replaces it.

This.  Not to mention that at 7.7 mil, even if that were the true number of concurrent players - it still isn't nearly "more than most of the competition combined".  Every MMO that takes a lot of time and effort is competing with one another, and I can name a handful of games whose numbers WoW cannot touch.

Or maybe they're tired of the game.  I have the money to pay for WoW, but I wouldn't go back with all the games on my pc and/or MMOs coming out in the near future.  With all the improvements being made in the genre, it'd be like going back to Runescape when I was playing WoW.

Comparing sub losses to "dying" is like saying that the Apple iPod line is "dead" because their sales have dropped off severely compared to when it came out and several years after. Don't be ridiculous, guys. People are just trying other things, some will come back periodically, but the fad is over. WoW still has great content, the best raiding in the business, incredibly competitive PVP, and almost 8 million subs. I bet you any MMO out there would kill for 1/8th of that number. Oh, that's right, almost all the other MMOs are F2P now, so they don't have subs. That is 7,700,000 guaranteed sources of income for Blizzard from their WoW franchise month after month going forward barring future decreases, etc. I bet the expansion settles at around 6.5-7million subs before picking another 1.5 million when the new expansion comes out.

Actually, I would bet the copies would increase. "Guys! Guys! our #1 Themepark MMO competitor is dead! Time for us to move in and take the market!!" x 1000

I'd say years of those kind of games already did that, if you look around you'll see many of the recently announced MMO's are going in different directions. Make no mistake though, whichever design comes out on top of this next crop, will be copied for another decade.

Do you realese wow numbers from china and other asian countries  (excluding korea ) is payperhour ? wow has 7.7m players /accounts now but not subs . Subs = 15$ (euro etc ) monthly fee playing player .

It is impressive how everyone repeating this  blizzard PR  without thinking/ questioning .

This is a really good post Eir.  It's the dilemma I have with a few of the old games I like.  I got a letter from Turbine warning me that my two LotRO houses are going to be taken away.  I realized then I probably wasn't going to play the game again. I wasn't going to reinstall the game to get my account in order and it hit me.  I'm done with this game.  The same is true with EQ2 as much as I enjoyed it.  There are too many games now for the time I have and new releases right around the corner.

Curse you AquaScum!

You must be counting Runescape, because 7.7M is more than the total playing any of the WoW killers on the failed shelf( Next to GW2 ).

OMG DOWN to 8 MILLION!! that's still more than 4 x the amount of ALL the MMOs currently on the market. Love it or hate it or love to hate it or hate that you once loved it. WoW isn't going anywhere. If EQ can last 14 years and 18 plus expacks then your grand kids will be playing WoW with you in the nursing home. Peace haters

No.  They are just too poor Kenney.  Here is some good stock advice, don't waste your time and money on the next round of failed WoW killers.  Or if you insist on wasting your time and money.  Make room on your shelf for more games you got tired of playing.

I know alot of players have left in 5.3 for one single quest.  There's a quest (anyone player that's done it knows exactly which one I'm talking about) called Glory To The Horde or The Lion Roars.  These quests require you to PvP in a PvE questline.  What this has done is made PvPers sign up specifically for these battlegrounds to kill the PvE player with no gear and they get slaughtered.  They do this because the bonus for doing random battlegrounds is negated in full, and then some, but the utter number of kills you can get in these battlegrounds by killing PvE players.  Whoever thought of this quest idea, I don't think works for Blizzard anymore lol.

A PvE quest that requires PvP...isn't a PvE quest....just want to point that out.....

None, They have left subscription gaming until the recession is over.  This is why we see so many games failing to take gamers away from WoW or bring new people into gaming.  WoW's numbers are falling because the number of gamers is falling.
