Er, no, you didn't call it. The game has been out for roughly 3 months now, and it's in fact continually *gained* paid subscribers.

Mmmhmm. The server population trend numbers don't support you.

The subscriber numbers do. In a month, they went from 1.7 million subscribers where most were still in their free trial, to 1.7 million subscribers were the vast majority are now paid. That is an increase.


That just looks like a little press blurb very light on details. I get what you're saying, its not doom and gloom like people are making out but they aren't exactly candid about current churn. I can't really see this increasing as the casual market continues to move toward mobile crap and the core market doesn't appear too satisfied by it anymore.

I don't think its even the game itself so much as it is people are burnt out on the traditional MMO formula.
