I really want to know where they get those numbers.
A few months back I checked every server how populated they were and they were rather empty, except 1 or 2 exceptions like Area 52 on horde side (alliance side is completely deserted).

You logged on to every server? There are almost 250 US servers alone. Another 100 for Europe. Then you take into account Horde and Alliance side... and the time it takes to run a proper /who census with a mod. Sorry, I'm calling bullshit. And even then you only get concurrent users, not how many active subscriptions there are.

And that's not even considering China, which I have no fucking clue how they calculate a user there.

I guess we have very different ideas about what constitutes "frequent", particularly as it applies to when one pays a monthly fee for a service.

Not to mention that "have to rework the game pretty significantly to make it f2p".

There's nothing to rework, remove the price tag, done.

Christ I hope you don't run a business.

Are they just out of original ideas?


I thought Pandaria WAS an original idea. No one liked it.

Anything using existing lore and people bitch that it's rehashed and lame. Anything new and people bitch that it has nothing to do with Warcraft.

Kill off all the characters people who played Warcraft loved?
Retcon it all by doing a shitty time traveling expansion?
Fuck WoW and fuck their writers.
What drivel.

What characters are you referring to?

EDIT:
Cutter bait:

“When there’s an article about us, there’s always one person who’s like, ‘IT’S A SCAM,’” he confessed.

Fools and their money are soon parted.

Explains why you're so bitter, mate, you must be flat broke!

wah-wah.

Bioware has yet to release a game that I did not find utterly enjoyable. Are they all at the same level of quality? Fuck no. Are they all a "buy at full price" level of quality? Nope. Dragon Age 2, for example, was too bizarre a departure from the first one, and didn't have enough variety. But I still enjoyed it and sunk a fair number of hours into it. Shit, even SWTOR kept me busy for months.

Never really understood all the bile. Bioware at their worst are still better than most companies at their best. And they actually appreciate the PC as a platform.

They've certainly not reached the threshold for where I will flat out declare them unworthy of my dollar bills.

How's it feel to be Bioware's bitch? Wait dont answer that. I can recognize true love when I see it. Dude youre like the wife that wont leave her abusive husband. Classic victim mentality, it cant be his fault I deserve all that Im getting....

Hey I just came up with a new way of describing fanbois!!

You seem a little mad.

Cutter, your responses only come in one color. You have even less variety than the Mass Effect 3 endings.

News Comments > Activision Blizzard's Financials - WoW at 7.6M Subs
23. Re: Activision Blizzard's Financials - WoW at 7.6M Subs Nov 7, 2013, 00:48 NKD
 
Mordhaus wrote on Nov 7, 2013, 00:39:
Maybe they wouldn't have lost more subs if they wouldn't have terminated the 25 year cards of their employees or former employees. I have some friends who worked for them in Austin, at their CS helpdesk for WoW. They laid 90% of them off, but did let them keep the cards as part of their severance package. Apparently management decided recently to put the kibosh on that and cancelled them all. Even current employees will no longer have access in that fashion.

All I can say is, Good Going Activision! You ran CoD into the ground to the point that it is now like Madden, new edition every 6-12 months with minor changes, and you are slowly killing your other cash cow with idiotic moves. You and EA are like twins now, enjoy your ride into mediocrity.

Nobody is quitting WoW because some people got laid off. The WoW player base doesn't give a fuck about your friends. In fact, they spend a good portion of their time talking about how useless your friends are. Hell, its the other way around: people got laid off because people were quitting WoW. Customer service was over-staffed.

There's no secret here. WoW is losing subscriptions because it's old and people are bored of the same old shit and there are a lot of other similar games to play out there.

WoW is one of the best games of all time.

Panda-land is an awesome expansion.

Can't wait for the next expansion.

The setting didn't interest me enough to play much at all this expansion, not really interested in Pandas, Pandaria, or Asian themed content, but it's probably one of the better expansions in terms of balance & challenge curve.

For me though, I just tire of the formula. I'm done with any kind of serious play in a theme park MMO. It's worn thin.

Creston wrote on Nov 6, 2013, 20:33:

It's THE most succesful, obviously, but not the ONLY succesful MMO.


MMO fanbase has two annoying habits above all others:

1) Crying about their "broken immersion" any time they see anything they don't like.

2) Calling any MMO a failure that does not blow away all the other competition. Even if it has an active player base, and is profitable.

Not excited at all. Couldn't care less actually. I'm still bitter over them ruining Multiboxing in WoW. It's very unlikely that I will ever give that company another dime.

What did they do there exactly? I must have missed that one after quitting.

That's a good question. I barely log in these days. But I have no idea what he is talking about. People still multibox just fine.

What do you mean? There is gameplay video.

Cutter is actually a bot that just posts negative shit at random from a database. Sometimes the pattern recognition fails and it posts something nonsequiter.

The Saint's Row DLC SUCKS. Unbalances the game. Borderline useless. But the game is amazing. Give them your money (for the full game, not the dlc).

Let's just cut to the chase here: Does COD Dog die?


Yeah that would suck. Don't give me a dog in-game and then kill him. I still hate reading the email from the HEARTLESS FUCKING WHORE in Deus Ex:HR where she says "I couldn't take care of your dog, and I didn't know what else to do. I'm sorry. He was a really sweet dog."

I wish I knew which NPC in the building it was that put my dog down, because I would murder her over and over and over and over and over again in increasingly inventive ways.
