I'm still more interested in seeing a ratio that compares total sales of the Cataclysm expansion to current subs with what Wrath had prior to Cataclysm's release. Seems like a far more important statistic that just 'current subs' over a quarter.If Wrath sold 20 million units, but never got above 12 million subs, yet Cata only sold 15 units and has just about dipped to 10 million subs, then Wrath failed at subscription retention.I know what they're reporting is important to the shareholders, but does it really lend itself to a review of the success of the product?

That's a fair point, but if you hadn't brought it up, it would never have occurred to me. I suppose one could figure it out in a roundabout way by getting the number of subs just before Cata released and to-date, as well as the number of subs just before Wrath, and the number of units of Wrath and Cata sold.
