Besides the 1M Annual Pass players, keep in mind that:- WoW released in Brazil. Demand was strong enough Blizzard had to add 5 realms, thanks in part to the $8 subscription rate here.- I'm guessing 1M Annual Pass players means something between 500K and 1M less D3 sales, since those players already received the game for free. Also, 1M players that might potentially purchase that angel horse got it for free. While I think the Annual Pass might have had a positive result for Blizzard - and should have an even larger result in the next year, as players are not able to unsubscribe - it was not without costs.- TOR released December 20. There was not enough time for most players that might leave WoW for TOR to cancel their subscriptions, and for those subscriptions to run out, before December 31. We will need to wait for Q1 2012 to actually see the effect TOR had on WoW.
