"and while it's no different than in Wrath the naysaying seems to be becoming more widespread with Cata."I do not remember any real naysaying about WoW during wrath. I remember a certain amount of people being curmudgeons about how ezmode the game is, but I don't really remember people talking about how the game was dying. Near the end, people were excited for cataclysm.I still maintain that Wrath of the Lich King was and is the pinnacle of MMORPG'ing. It made it the most accessible while maintaining the interest of the uber-hardcore. It had great stories, great questing, and a lot of interesting lore. Also, it had what I believe to be the best video game story arc that has ever been invented (the Arthas/LK story).It also had the best PvP experience I've ever had in any MMO-type game ever, that being Wintergrasp.I'm not going to bring up the downfalls of cataclysm, but I will say that the "naysaying" so to speak is much more prevalent, and the subscriber losses are bigger than what the article writer reports. Their subcription numbers dropped under 11 million based on ATVI's last quarterly report. This is not just the general whining of a few loudmouthed curmudgeons - it's definitely more than that.
