FTP games are chiseling away at WoW. Those 600k over that quarter are a direct result of Rift going FTP. Rift is a quality game, and I doubt it will stop at 600k. WoW needs to look into a new business model.

Somehow i doubt rift gained 600k subs directly from wow.

Have you logged on recently? The game is full even at 2am lately. Not that I'm saying all 600k directly came from WoW, but the influx of people was huge, and they had to come from somewhere.


As a side note, it's worth pointing out again that 7.7 million subscribers that they list aren't all $15 subscribers. A very large number of WoW players are in eastern markets that don't play monthly subs, and they've always been rolled into that same big number that gets tossed out.
