Re: Is wow dieing?

said by Vinceruos_t:

Wow as a whole is going as strong as ever and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

WoW is definitely not as strong as ever. WoW bled a lot of subscribers prior to MoP launch and though it resurged with annual pass and the xpac it still is not on the level of the numbers of BC/WotLK.

WoW will be around for 10-20 yrs more as long as there are a few folks playing and a server left up....look at Ultima, Asheron's Call, DAoC, Everquest.....MMOs dont die they just fade into cult followings.

I wonder what their break point would be.
UO supposedly still has 100k active accounts. There hasn't been a land expansion in years. Though they have released new content. But supposedly the 100k subscribers is enough to keep it afloat and bring in some profit.
Though how many out of that 100k are actual people, vs 1 person with multiple, is another thing to be determined.
