Lead Game Designer Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas discussed the surge and wane of subscriptions with Warlords of Draenor with VentureBeat. You can

and we have the highlights below:
The surge in subscriptions was thrilling but we needed to be even handed about it.
More people than ever are doing organized raiding due to things like cross-server raiding and flex sizes.
Shortcomings: 5 man participation is down, due to removal of VP - this swung too far in the direction of not needing to do them vs. having to do them until the end of the expac.
Garrisons encouraged people to actually play when they only had 5 minutes to play vs. not logging in at all. Doesn't necessarily buy that those log ins are coming at the expense of group play.
Re; Subs up and down: "Things are inherently cyclical"
Previewed 6.2 features: Timewalkers, Mythic 5 mans, new raid, Tanaan, shipyard, adventure guide
"it's almost impossible to have enough content in a patch" - "What patch 6.2 represents is iterations on our existing systems, polishing things using lessons learned from 6.0, adding new content in that model. "
WoW Token brought no drastic change to subscriber levels
Re; Mythic raid size: Happy we can balance encounters for mythic but wish we could flex it.
LFG has made things more convenient but harder to form social bonds - trying to sway more to the former experience of spamming trade for group members with the group finder feature.
