I'm in the "Who cares" group. Tobold's blog lost it's draw over me a long time ago. It's also starting to be the same with WoWInsider, with it's 'jump to conclusions' attitude. This is just the latest of several articles claiming the mass exodus of WoW players, based on a graph that doesn't have enough data to actually prove the fact. Yes, there's a drop in numbers since BC, however, that doesn't mean anything when even now, the number of players is higher then preBC. Any expansion to any game brings a peak of players, which taper off and level out again. Check any chart, and it's obvious.I'd wait for a few more months to see if numbers drop before announcing the sky is falling. And really, at this point, I wouldn't worry until WoW's levels drop into ballpark range of any other MMO out there. So far Blizzard has proven adept at keeping their subscribers. What happened to the last greatest 'WoW Killer'? It seems Goliath isn't dead yet.
