Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of World of Warcraft players around the world who purchased the Cenarion Hatchling pet, we’ve raised a total of more than $1.9 million USD to support the ongoing earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan. In May, we announced that for every Cenarion Hatchling purchased by July 31, 2011, 100% of the $10 USD adoption fee would be going to assist victims of this disaster -- and the community responded by opening up their hearts and wallets wide. Thanks again for your support and for helping to make an impact on the lives of those affected by these events.

Subscription losses two reports in a row? How interesting. Maybe this will spur them to boot the B-team devs they have now, move the ones from Titan back over, and return to quality.Ah, who am I kidding?
Ahhhh Darnell, you are the coolest rogue the world will ever know...was he just on some random cliff with the weird background from the Eye of Eternity?
Hmm, Maybe Blizzard has to learn the hard way..Old content refaced is still old content, People keep coming back for somthing new, Fun. Not the same stuff they did 4+Years ago.
Anyone a blizzard geek to know the subscription numbers during the much maligned ICC?<Putting on asbestos jacket>If you are morphing your game toward casual (which ICC decidedly was) it was probably not a good idea to try to recalibrate back to hard. Keep it casual.Before you flame me note that a recent review of the data from World of Logs indicated that 85% of attempts on Shannox and Beth are still wiping. Since:A) Raids likely to use worldoflogs are probably already above averageB) Many players are not raidingIt might suggest that Cat really didn't give us content that the majority of players are enjoying.
Oh joy, more people moaning and complaining, and claiming the sky is falling again...
I wish I could find a game where hardcore and casual were utterly meaningless... It's kind of an annoying narrative to have in damn well near every video game discussion. And, just like the increasing divide between Republican and Democrat voters in the States, it's never a good thing.Adamsm: That's a very... limited way of viewing the comments here. And, in a sense, it IS a "sky is falling" moment. WoW has lost nearly a million subscribers, all told. That's a big deal, no matter how many subscribers they still have.
This sub drop actually doesn't surprise me.
It was all locks that unsubscribed, tbh.
Meh so 300k more people decided to either move on or take a break as it is summer after all.
As a guildmate just said in guild chat: "All 300k were shaman." I lol'd.
I am getting close. I am a casual player; I've had the same rogue since Day #1 and that is it. So, I don't think I am speaking from some elite level when I say this game has gotten absurdly easy ... and I am not very good. I was in Sethria's Roost doing some Fireland dailies (and why is breaking down a tower in the Molten Front a daily quest? How many times can it come down?) and I died courtesy of a horde Hyjal Protector attacking me. Happens at least once each trip there; very frustrating.Yet, I enjoyed it. I don't like the fact that you can succeed at this game simply via attrition. Maybe a minor complaint to some, but it is becoming a bigger issue with me. Will it be enough to get me to unsubscribe? I don't know, but the fact that I am even thinking about it says volumes.
It is about an 8% drop. One might also want to know the internals - how many more are accounts which have "time bought" but which are essentially inactive.
Still doesn't change the fact that people will now be using these numbers as yet another 'reason' to show why WoW sucks.
