There's no ONE single reason WoW has been losing subscriptions. But burnout, real-life interference, economy woes, and the like have existed in every expansion. A 15% drop in one year is a pretty clear indication that people didn't like Cata in general. That manifested itself in specific gripes, sure - but when taken as a whole, the overall direction of Cata was poorly received. It's pretty telling that the subscriber loss lessened after the last patch, a patch which reversed most of the game design decisions of Cata. It's also interesting that there were more subscribers at the end of Wrath after a year of nothing but ICC than there are right now after a brand new content patch. I'm glad that Blizz is on the right track again, but let's not pretend they were never on the wrong track.
