That just makes you sound like you've never played the game.

It's a combination of people going through content faster than expected, and RIFT, I'd say.
Still playing though, and no intention of stopping

Well after 5 years I just can't find anything fresh in WoW anymore. It's a great game, but 5 years of play just has that boring effect on you.

I suspect a good 5% of that population switched to Rift(I did). It's a good game that copy's a lot of the good stuff WoW had and has a lot fresh ideas itself. MMO's are also the most fun to play when they're brand spankin' new.
What's going on.

I've stopped playing because I simply don't have the time anymore. Ever since I started work, I simply can't fit WoW into my 60+ hour per week work schedule. I can't say the game content is as stimulating as it was before, but I played for reasons that also include friends that I've played with for nearly 5 years. Hard to break bonds like that, even if they are online.

i did the same thing...stopped playing during WOTLK after i was able to experience all the raids, none of which were that fun over Vanilla wow and TBC days. afte TBC i jsut saw the game as...well it couldnt get any better, and looks like others agree. it just got so boring.....the grind itself was fine, and sometimes fun depending on what you were doing. The "purple farming" at first was ok, but then it just became boring. Raiding was fun in the old days and in my mind nothing will be more fun then MH and BT.....they ruined Naxx and the newest end game is just....well doesnt have that "awesome" like it use to.

Ontop of all of that they made the game so easy to get purples and epics during WOTLK that it put a bad taste in my mouth...i saw people turning 80 and then having half sets of teir 9 and teir 10 gear in under a week.....it jsut wasnt fun. They made the game so that everyone can get the same stuff without working as hard as you use to have to like in the original days....it just.....lost it.

my friends keep asking me to play again and i laugh at them...never again and im actually happy i dont play....waste of 15 a month

I played WoW for about 3 years, dumped it for WAR, dumped that for EVE, dumped that again for WoW, and now I'm back to EVE.

I've played WoW with a few irl friends since halfway through tbc and quit about a month after getting into end game content in cata. Of course during that time we all played on and off but college definitely takes up too much time now, and it's a lot easier to just hop into a quick game on other various console games. That and I got sick of the grind and pugs in WoW.

You also have to take in account the fact that China doesn't have Cata yet. I'm sure when China gets the expansion they'll easily get that 5% back. They have a large fan base over there.
