It might be true or it might not but nobody has the guts to call them out because Blizzard makes people money when the succeed. The media is not going to mess with their cash cow.

Ugh this old chest nut!
 
It's simple (this is present on all blizzard press releases)
 
World of Warcraft’s Subscriber Definition
World of Warcraft subscribers include individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access. Internet Game Room players who have accessed the game over the last thirty days are also counted as subscribers. The above definition excludes all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or cancelled subscriptions, and expired prepaid cards. Subscribers in licensees’ territories are defined along the same rules.
 
When blizzard apply the above rules to their player base they come out with their 10m or what ever.
 
The OP can dissagree with the definitton till the cows come home but the numbers don't lie.

China.SImple and easy.They dont pay monthly subs(they have a per hour system there)and i dont even know if they buy the game at all.especially with the internet cafe shops they have.Its like league of legends in Korea where every hero is unlocked for everyone but only in computer spots where you pay by the hour to play.There might be something like that in WoW too.

I haven't read every page and post in this thread, so this has probably (hopefully) already been said, but...

Blizzard is part of a publicly traded company. As such, they have to release (at the very least) quaterly reports giving said public a breakdown on their current finances. If it was discovered that they were lying, they would be CRIMINALLY charged w/ securities fraud, the results of which would be DISASTROUS. Not to mention the almost guarenteed monetary fines, and possible jail-time for any executives that had knowledge of the deception, which would almost certainly include the CFO and CEO, as well as a host of others down-the-line...it just really isn't worth it to lie. I mean, it's possible, and not unheard of, but it's highly unlikely.

So no, they are NOT lying about their sub-numbers....stretching the truth using funny math's? Yes, but outright lying? No.

All companies exaggerate like crazy, when it's about stuff others can't immediately disprove. For example, when they are in development of a game, and want to hype it up. That's why you don't preorder games: half of the stuff said will never show up, or only a year later in form of an expensive DLC.

But: who cares? What does it matter to me, how many people are playing WoW? If I am playing WoW, then the only thing that matters if I have fun.

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

That article was written by someone who has no business trying to analyze things.  They are trying to use Warcraft Realms census to prove their point, however they fail to mention (or even realize, I don't think the person who wrote that is remotely intelligent) two key things about that census:

1. Almost every single server is listed as red, meaning not enough people have reported a census to get an accurate pictue.  The actual numbers are *significantly* higher

2. Its only for NA/EU realms

That article is Bullshit

WarcraftRealms only tracks EU/US subscribers and characters.   There are only around 4 million EU/US active accounts for WoW.

It doesn't matter if you pay 15 bucks or 5 cents a month.

If you pay for WoW at all you are counted.

I'm not going to waste my time trying it discredit 10 million subs. 

They have 10 million active paying accounts even if different countries have different payment methods.

I've been playing EVE Online for 7 years off and on. I don't care what the numbers are on a game. Fudged or real, if I like the game I will play it. If I don't, I won't.

 

If WoW has 2 billion subs, Gratz to Blizzard. I still aint playing.

Lol no you don't.

 

You have 2-3 million subscribers, and allot [mod edit] who paid for an hour of play time.

 

If i subscribe to a year of a magazine, and pay 15 dollars a month for a subscription, and get a magazine everything month, that is a subscription.

 

If i go to the magazine store, and buy 1 copy of the same magazine for 20 bucks, and never buy another magazine, that is NOT a subscription.

 

Saying you habe 10 million subs when you don't is lying.

 

How is this rocket science? Detials don't matter, fact is, they lie.

** Also, i just looked South Korea uses a similar time model ~

 

It's deceptive watch :

 

Play a game that has over 10 million subscribers!

Play  a game that has 3 million subscribers, and some penny men!

 

They use the subs as an advertising pillar, and a quip for broadcasting false consumer health.

[mod edit] w

 

people in china are also spending $77 dollars for MoP.  how does that make you feel?

 

 "Netease has the license to operate the game in China, and the expansion pack will be available at the official Netease-Blizzard online store at bmall.163.com. As seen in the image above, it’s priced at 486 RMB (US$77). It’s already hitting some other e-commerce sites in the country, such as Amazon China and 360Buy, though shipping won’t really begin until September 28 in China, allowing Blizzard to first deal with the likely huge demand from the Korea and Taiwan launches on September 27th at midnight local time."

Thats the price for the OPTIONAL limited collector edition BOX ,which as you can see isnt even sold out two months after launch. You only pay for a "luxury" disc booklet and other goodies. Not for the otherwise free upgrade.

There is and was no huge demand from Korea and Taiwan either for expansion sales.

WoW Korea is close to dead anyways and Taiwan does not pay for upgrades either.

Does it feel good to resort to missinformation in defence of WoW?

 

No I dont support the OP or that blog. This guy is giving everyone a bad name, who knows and keep exposing Blizzard PR spin, and the deliberate ignorance of many WoW fanboys who just love to fall for the spin and keep reciting the reports with the usual small yet crucial falsification, just as intended by Blizzard. He doesnt have half a clue what he's talking about. Neither about BLizzard, neither about Warcraftrealms statistics etc.

Measuring the number of players that an MMORPG has is kind of like measuring the unemployment rate:  there are a lot of different ways to measure that are all justifiable, but they give very different numbers.

Lol, no kidding. I stopped playing WoW years ago because it got hella boring, but threads like this are popcorn-worthy :).

 No.  That is only one definition of a sub.  They define a sub as anyone with an account that has paid something in the last 30 days, excluding free trials and first months.

  Whether you agree or not is irrelevant.  10 million people have payed something in the last 30 days, whether they loggin in or not, they paid something.

I have a WoW account.  I did not buy MoP.  I have no need to buy it.  I"m not anywhere near max level, have no interest in fighting with the pets and am not interested in the monks.  I'm sure there are millions like me.

Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

I love the the common retort: "EVEN IF WOW DIDNT COUNT ALL THOSE ASIAN SUB THEYD STILL HAVE 5 MMILLION/ THE MOST WESTERN PLAYERS BY FAR WITH MUCH GAP!!!" whenever we got yet for the hundredst time over the point that the game does not have "10 Million player" but 10 Million so called "active accounts" all over the world.

It just yells "I am a foool!"

 

Like as if they even know how many "Western" player there actually are.

Like as if they have any sort of proof or evidence WoW even has close to 5 Million Western player leave alone more.

Like as if there is any sort of official evidence WoW ever grew above the 4.5 Million Western player Blizzard proudly announced back in 2008 when people voiced their doubts about the "+10 Millions" they couldnt be find on the Western server.

 

But yet the fanboys ask  you to proof their baseless claims wrong and accusing you to falsely push the burden of proof on them.... its hilarious.

 

And whenever you do post the evidence in form of financial reports and exposing lies and missconceptions about businessmodels and their role in the "record numbers", yet again they call you out as "desperate hater spinning the truth" and start to ignore the thread.
