I never said I don't think Tobold is news-- as I said in the post, I think he and other high profile WoW players (including us here at WoW Insider, I'd say, though hopefully not too arrogantly-- if I quit WoW, would you guys care?) are indicative of trends in the game. Of course I think he's news-- I reported on him. If WoW Insider closed up shop tomorrow I assume someone else (maybe even Tobold) would report on us. It's always news when someone who's known for playing a game stops playing it (or starts playing it again-- look at Michael Jordan).You make a good point about summer dips, and to a certain extent, this post is just a little bit of chronicling on my part-- next summer, when the population dips again and everyone starts declaring the death of WoW, I'll have something to link to that reminds everyone that players come back in the fall.
