Shocker: WoW Not Going F2P

Though it seems readily apparent that Blizzard still has around 7.6 million reasons to continue charging for World of Warcraft subscriptions, Eurogamer has verified that they do not plan on walking away from all that money any time soon to jump on the free-to-play bandwagon that WoW's success helped force upon almost every other MMORPG on the market. "We didn't make the game to be free-to-play," production director J Allen Brack said. "We would have to rework the game pretty significantly in order to make it free-to-play. It's not something we're currently considering." And though the game's still-enormous player count has slipped over the years, he indicates they are still creating as much new content for the game as ever. "We'll continue to invest heavily in World of Warcraft to deliver frequent, high-quality content to our players, he explains. "But in terms of the content and developing, we have more resources focused on developing content for World of Warcraft than ever before. So we expect to continue having a long and happy life."

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.
Think what you want. I did it and it really didnt take that long.
Try it yourself, its not that hard.

Youre saying it yourself, you have no clue how they calculate a player in China. Me neither, and since they dont even give out simple info like that, their numbers are useless, and from my experience bullshit.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
