    Default The Death of a Thousand Cuts

    A very interesting Article: http://www.wolfsheadonline.com/?p=5663#86365

    Shareholder's meeting explains whats been going on. Apparently Blizzard has lost nearly 1,000,000 accounts (estimating by June at this point) and 600,000 as of April 2011.

    Excerpt:
    Last week during a shareholders conference call, Mike Morhaime revealed that WoW has lost 600,000 subscribers since Cataclysm’s release. At roughly $15 per subscriber that’s a loss of $9 million dollars per month in revenues. Given this bleak news, I feel somewhat vindicated. I was one of the few if only MMO commentators to have the courage to take on the 800 pound WoW gorilla loved by 12 million fans and tell it like it is.
    Another great quote and so, so relevant to the problems we face as MMO gamers:

    What really struck me is that he discusses WoW in the typical analytical and clinical way most players now talk about WoW these days: content and gear. It such a shame that MMOs have become so singularly focused on stats, loot and progression that nothing else really matters. What a sad and banal thing that MMOs have become.
