Yea its basically going the same way call of duty will go soon enough. Unoriginal content that rips off all the previous versions and eventually the kids who play it grow wise to see its crap and there's better stuff out there which forces the developer to a fork in the road- adapt and improve, or die (hoping they'll die).

Hmm, another Blizzard thread full of haters. What a surprise! If WoW lost 100% of its subscribers today it would still be seen as one of the most successful games of all time. I quit 3 years ago but it was still a fun game. If it's not your cup of tea, just don't play. Why rain on everyone's parade?

In other news, bicycle and frisbee sales were up by 300k units last quarter. Also, there was a dramatic increase in sales of contraception devices.

Lol? Game not dumbed down enough yet for you? The PvP skillcap in this game is already dramatically lower than it was during BC arenas. It sounds like you just need to learn your class better, rather than expecting blizzard to give you more free loot.

"People finally got a life"

I imagine most people are just playing other games. I quit not too long ago and have been filling the time with TF2 and BFBC2.

As for the very few not completing hard modes. There was a greater feeling of accomplishment, to me anyway, of downing SSC, TK, and Sunwell knowing it was hard anyway you went at it. Hard modes to me don't make much sense. It's like, ok we killed this guy, now let's try it standing on one foot. If I kill a boss once then that's it for me. Of course we would go back again and again to gear everyone but, that's not why I raided.

No, yeah, that's a great hypothesis. WoW players are quitting because in the upcoming future months, new games are going to be released. P.S. Black Ops is dying at the moment because BF3 comes out in October. BF3 is preemptively dying because in the next decade BF4 will probably be out.

Ive played PVP at a high level from 70, 80 and 85 and 70 TBC pvp was so slow paced RNG related it wasn't funny. Mace Stun oh Mace stunned again oh windfury proc dead. Wow that warrior solo'd me due to random procs procccing over and over. So many classes were just not viable at 70 unless they played heals and even then were relatively awful ie paladins. SL/SL warlock was a joke and so boring to play.

The best thing they have done is make all PVPers have access to pretty much the same gear minus T2 weapon. Gets rid of most of the well I got beat cause I'm so under geared and makes the game more fair which in a PVP environment it should be as equal as possible so that it truly is skill that sets you apart. All I do now pretty much is RBG its fun and that's what a game is supposed to be. Also grain of salt losses really this was there peak of subscribers its bound to drop a bit they still have what 11.** million subscribers yup games dead lol.
