I love that this thread is all about shitting on Blizzard and sheepishly agreeing with the sensationalist news, but when there's a story about how PC games sales are dying, and 99% of the thread is 'OMG, no they're not, digital!!!'...

Hypocrisy much : )


I love it when blizzard accounts are compromised, the problem is clearly on blizzards end, and they're fucking evil. Yet when GW2 accounts get compromised, people here can't say enough nice things about anet.

The compromised accounts for GW2 were because people used the same passwords on a guild wars fan site. It was pretty much isolated to that. If the accounts were caused by some negligence on the part of ncsoft or ArenaNet you can bet they would have gotten criticized.

I think its fair to compare Cataclysm sales versus Mists of Pandaria they are likely apples to apples comparisons (aka retail). It hints at a downward trend. It could also have been released at a odd time in the month for some people. I know quite a few large games have been released that are pulling attention away from World of Warcraft at the moment. It is possible to see a surge of players after people finish their run through of Guild Wars 2 or Borderlands2 or Torchlight 2 or what ever it is they are playing.
