First visible sign of market exhaustion of WoW?

I don't know, maybe it's just the market is tired of this rote formula or perhaps tired of subscription MMOs. Guild Wars 2 pushed what, 2.2mil copies in a week or two? I think there is definitely a market there. I just don't think that they really appealed to their fans with this. As soon as I heard it was an expansion involving the Pandaren I wrote it off. They could have put in flying mount combat with a dance studio and revived Arthas (again) but I had already dismissed it.

Let's be honest, the B team is working on this. I still see almost weekly hotfixes. The A team already moved onto Titan, although it will be interesting to see if that ever makes it to market as the climate for subscription MMOs seems to have drastically shifted. They put this out because they thought they could make a quick buck and to get some younger players into the game. The trouble is that the younger players are probably dicking around with a Nintendo 3DS or cellphone games.
