[PCgamer] World of Warcraft’s first subscription drop: are you still playing? - Page 6

post #51 of 221
World of warcraft is one of kind really.. but the problem it's too much work. If your a pc gamer only you might play it all day.. But for a console gamer it pisses you off because you are away from your consoles all day to get some item.

There is so much to do.. and blizz is always updating and making it easier for noobs.. (still pretty damn challenging).

I used to be hardcore, but now i'm casual gamer.. i might do a dungeon once or twice a week.. and maybe a raid.

I see they're getting ready for the Guild Wars 2 release...at least they're not raising prices of their subscription like FailScape. Gotta give 'em credit for that.

So they were reporting 10 million in 2008 and 12 millon in 2010 and backing off to 11,400,000 in 2011 while census data shows 4 million 200 thousand.

I bet they never had more than 6 million at any time and simply pad the books by keeping closed accounts open on books.

Started last fall after resisting for years, and I have a pretty good time when I can get on with some RL friends in vent.
Although it is kinda sad that I have the start icons on my desktop for all 3 STALKER games, Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, Dead Space 2, Metro 2033, Borderlands, Portal 2, Grid, and Dirt2...and I still just click on WoW. I really need to play something else once in awhile.

Which is still about 10 times what any other MMO has.

This subscription drop is the greatest thing to happen to WoW since its creation.
