While I'm sure an argument can be made that WoW is losing some steam, the game only lost 500,000 subscriptions. That's larger then the player base of most other MMOs.

Uhm, that's been out of date for me since October or November of 2012?

Hoo boy

That makes a ton of since since they sold, what was it, ~1million annual passes?

And while yes, the signups were open until March when D3 came out, most people got their Annual passes in 2011.

So yeah, most of the annual passes are already lapsed.

Did you hear that Everquest just released a new expansion? They had something like a million players at their peak (around ten years ago) and they're still profitable enough to keep the servers running and the expansions coming.

Blizzard is also good about very long-term support for their online games. They still have official Diablo 2 servers.

Wow is dying, yes; it's not going to run for all eternity. But it's not likely to die anytime soon.

I think most of the subscriptions lost are people who have been playing since Vanilla or BC and have just gotten tired of WoW. The reason more people won't come in is because current players are dicks to all the new guys. I'm guilty too.
