If you look at just US+Europe, and judging by press releases this last 12 months and WoW's historical playerbase distribution between west and east, WoW has most likely "just" 3x the player base of the second largest subscription game, and 5x the player base of the third.Impressive, yes. But it's WoW's weakest position in a long time. Blizzard needs to get it's act together if it wants to stop losing players and keep it's lead.On the other hand, I actually think MoP might be a huge step in the right direction. The next quarter or two should be hard for Blizzard, though, with the pre-expansion lull settling in the player base.
