11 million subscribers of $15 per month = 165 million per month excluding any other sales ever made.

That's a 1980 million per year. Excluding box sales, online sales, trading card game, authenticators, race changes.

Because strangely enough it takes money to maintain servers, and you need to pay employees.

Not even close. The richest companies in the world are oil and gas companies. Just for comparison, Activison Blizzard had a revenue of $4.8 billion last year. ExxonMobil, the richest company in the world, made $433.5 billion.

For one they don't have 11 million subscribers; they were barely at 10, I think it's at 9ish now.

For two, of those 9mill, that's active accounts not monthly-fee-subscribers. That includes trial accounts, as well as the Chinese accounts that are pay-as-you-go.
