Brings a smile to my face to see this. WoW is dying? Pshh, so what? WoW is like a phoenix... just comes back brighter than ever once it "dies" :3
I know that *I* actually did start dual-boxing during the $5 sale and RaF rewards. After playing from the beginning, that was what spurred me to try dual-boxing! It was pretty fun, but yeah I'm sure some of the boosts aren't actually new customers.
I dropped my sub in January due to sheer boredom although I don't play any other online games in place of WoW. After hearing that they finally canned that removed Greg; I'm very inclined to resub just to show my support of that decision. I'm relatively convinced that any gains in December/January were attributed to christmas and tax season and will be short lived. They're not going to see any persistent gains until WoD.
You realize that he left on his own right? He got another job, and quit; he wasn't fired.
Yes, cannot stand the cancer. Only way to beat it is with tolerance. Spread the tolerance and understanding.
In all honesty, I think the anti 'wow is dying' crowd is starting to get almost as obnoxious as the 'sky is falling' 'wow is dying' crowd. People get so sensitive/defensive whenever anything is written about wow's sub numbers these days. Its ok to admit that Bliz used some cleverness to get those numbers up for the Q4 report. It doesn't mean the end is near.
I'd be willing to bet that a lot of people came back when they heard about being able to mail account bound items to other realms. that's one of the things that I came back for.
Very good to WoW, but to be honest 200k is not the best thing, with the release of D3:RoS, maybe WoW will lost some subs, hope with the release of WoD, the subs will start to raise again...
How many subs would be required to keep the game running? Far less than 7 million I can assure you. do not worry people, WoW is doing fine.
And yet sti lf tanks
Still sucks we lost alot of players through the years.. and with 90% now being Swedish this game kinda suck more.. I mean,, LFR = Looking For Removed.. players are to lazy to listen what to do when told.. And we lose more BG's then ever before.. Conclusion I made: Swedish Players can't play and suck HARD! And I based this theory on absolutly nothing!Still.. good to have more players again.. But it's not enough yet..
Without any new real content until WoD (which is going to be awhile) Blizz is going to lose all the new subs they gained.
