How bad is that? I don't really know what people were expecting (if this was low or high)...losing subscribers is bad, sure, but it's only like 1%...it did have to go up against SWTOR finally being released so it might be ok?

It's really really great considering SWTOR launched during that time. I mean, Rift bled about 500k-600k subs from WoW, and SWTOR is generally accepted as a better game, with a bigger audience.

In truth, it's as uninformative as the previous drops have been. The other drops were mostly in Asia, as an example. TOR hasn't released outside of Europe/USA (though plenty of others bought copies from there) and the subs for WoW in Europe/USA hadn't really taken a drop over the last year from what I recall. In addition, the Europe/USA market is subscription based and a lot more of the profit than the Asian market.Comparing TOR's 2 mil to WoW's 6mil (IIRC) euro players is a bit different, but all those numbers are just up in the air really.

100k is almost statistical noise at that level, but the significance is in the trend (down), so it's bad, but not really bad.
