12 Million WoW Subscribers

Almost two years since Blizzard announced WoW had 11 million subscribers comes a new announcement saying World of Warcraft has now reached the 12 million subscriber plateau. They explain: "This milestone was reached in the wake of the mainland Chinese launch of World of Warcraft's second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, and also as global anticipation continues to mount for the December 7 release of the game's third expansion, Cataclysm." They also answer the inevitable questions about the methodology for tabulating these numbers: "World of Warcraft subscribers include individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access. Internet Game Room players who have accessed the game over the last thirty days are also counted as subscribers. The above definition excludes all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or cancelled subscriptions, and expired prepaid cards. Subscribers in licensees’ territories are defined along the same rules."

The number of people on the servers are way down and guild recruitments are pretty much nil.

Yeah I don't normally agree with you on well...anything but I have a few friends who play the game on and off, they are always complaining about the server pops being down and how the raider turnover is insane from all of the people quitting. The old guild a friend and I had built has been around since launch day and never needed to merge until a year after Lich King. Now they've had 4 mergers in a damned year just to keep the thing kicking. I think their WW playerbase grew but their NA/EU playerbases probably fell significantly.

Having seen the Cataclysm "features", they won't be getting me back either and I doubt most of the ex-players I know in real life will bother either. The casuals tend to screw around on their mobile phones and do other assorted nonsense these days.
