      Pretty cool analysis. What this shows is while the game has similar sub counts as Legion's peak, since now there's so many different games (Classic, Hardcore, SoD, Retail), the playerbase is fractured and each game has far lower player counts.

        I wonder how many of the accounts at this point are zombie accounts, where the owner doesn't even. Realize he is still subscribed

          No many since most are nerd man

          I accidentally let a year long sub roll over 4 months ago which is why I tried out SoD, but I was kinda bored of classic at that point so I haven't touched the game in like 3 months now. and there's still 8 more months of sub time where I count as a subscriber.

          so yes, zombie accounts like mine definitely exist

            Can kindasorta confirm. Friend of mine tried EVE and since he's a richgay he just set autorenew when he made his account. He ended up not liking it and quit after a few months. Fast forward about a year and a half, he decides to give it another chance and realizes he forgot to cancel his sub the first time he quit. Fortunately he had a fricklong queue when he quit so he didn't waste too many skillpoints.

        You might have a point if the game didn't have one sub for all versions effectively making them one 'world of warcraft' product.

        The fact that they've figured out how to cater to the audience and create such an upward trending graph in 2024 for an old ass MMO is a miracle.

        The #2 mmo FF14 can't even match the player numbers for any single version of WoW except maybe hardcore (lol). You Pedos are finished.

            The graph (and Bellular's vid in general) has none of the following information.
            -A Y axis with any kind of frame of reference.
            -Disaggregation of different SKUs/products (WoW Retail, Classic, Hardcore, etc.)
            -A direct source for the data that may have been used to construct the graph.
            -Confidence intervals surrounding the line to indicate roughly how strongly Bellular (or anyone else constructing a similar graph) believes his guess can be relied on.

            Some additional info that would help shed some light:
            -A breakdown of accounts per SKU
            -Average number of toons per account per SKU
            -Average number of hours played per toon per SKU
            -Aggregated (and disaggregated) playtime per month, per server.

            Blizzard has all this data, by the way. The software generates it automatically for them.

            If the news is great across the board I'd expect them to revive reporting player stats.

            It's guesswork, it includes no less than half a dozen products (I'm actually prepared to believe that part - the sub count according to the graph gets a four million sub shot in the arm right as Classic comes out, right at the nadir, and then it steadily stays above that, indicating Classic and its forks are keeping WoW alive at this point) it contains no detailed breakdowns of where player activity is or what's going on these days, etc. As a snapshot it's potentially interesting but statistically quite risky to rely on, but I don't think it can form the basis of any serious analysis.

            Quick question, by the way; Does Blizzard count the chinese method of subscription, aka time that ticks down as you play, as "active" accounts (for example say you pay for thirty hours and play for an hour a day, or fifteen hours for two days)? Swore it was mentioned somehwere they do

              Ya. Not only do they count it, but they count it super dishonestly by treating any account with any gametime on it as a full sub, even inactive accounts with an hour left on it forever unused.
              The newest cope from WoWbucks is that they didn’t count China which is just a blatant lie

                Pretty cool analysis. What this shows is while the game has similar sub counts as Legion's peak, since now there's so many different games (Classic, Hardcore, SoD, Retail), the playerbase is fractured and each game has far lower player counts.

I think I was too young to realize back then that TBC was also bad. Replaying wow classic and wow classic tbc the difference was night and day. tbc had nothing to do but dailies and the weekly raid.

    Blizzard shilling has increased since they got pushback on the new battle.net terms of service that force you to waive your right to dispute arbitration and class action suits that you either must accept or permanently lose access to your account.

      Lol is that really their updated terms of service?
      I just started telling people a suit against Blizzard for not providing the service they were payed for via bans would be worth millions. You can absolutely decide who you provide service to but you can't still charge them for it. Why Blizzard is so fricked is that they have created a direct dollar value of their gold.
      The second thing is that their censorship of ingame chat requires violating wiretapping law; which means anyone banned for that reason has a very easy settlement.

    It's a /wowg/ fake campaign after the Graphgate meltdown about 24 hours ago.

    They actually believe that Bellular, who pulled numbers out of his ass, is correct when it clearly shows that the graphs are clearly taken from Google Trends and the lines connect.

    >All these people in these threads who refuse to believe that World of Warcraft has this many subscribers
    The unfortunate reality is that it's true. What people are missing though is that a subscriber is not an active player.
    WoW has been shilling out "Exclusive" bonuses for purchasing lengthy subscription packages for ages at this point, and this is why their subscriber numbers stay high. A ton of morons purchase a 12 month subscription deal because of FOMO over some moronic looking mounts or cosmetics and then quit playing after a month, but they count as an active subscription for the entire year.

    Basically Blizzard figured out how to make a lot of players who only count as an active subscriber for 1 or 2 months out of the year (People who sub to play an expansion and then quit) count as an active subscriber for 12 months of the year through these packages, and it works.

      Consider the following: It only says "subscriber" and not "paying subscriber". Any currently active account that has been subbed for one month at any point in time is counted as a subscriber, whether the owner is paying with actual money or using tokens for gametime.

        You clearly missed the point.
        If you remove the ~5 million chinese subs from WOTLKs peak sub count, you're left with about 7.5 million world wide.
        Chinese WoW shut down at the start of 2023, so any numbers of the current sub base is the worldwide (minus china) stats.
        And according to the "new information", the current sub count is roughly 7.2 million, or only about 300,000 subs behind the worldwide (minus china) subs the game had at it's absolute peak of popularity.

            Since you can no longer play WoW in china, that means the number of worldwide players is roughly the same now, 15 years later, as it was back during the peak of the games popularity when WOTLK was current.

          Pretty cool analysis. What this shows is while the game has similar sub counts as Legion's peak, since now there's so many different games (Classic, Hardcore, SoD, Retail), the playerbase is fractured and each game has far lower player counts.

    I mean I'm not surprised considering one sub gives you access to what, 4 different versions of the game. So even if you're only playing one of them you still count towards a single sub total.

      And if you're playing all 4 you count as 4 subs, because that's how Blizzard counts their players.

        I don't think that's true. One sub gives you access to them all. If I pay for a sub because I want to play SoD, I could also play Dragonflight with that sub if I wanted to (which I don't, but I could)

          If you play Diablo 4, Overwatch, WoW, and Starcraft 2 all within the same month you count as 4 different monthly active users.
          If you play WoW, WoW Classic, WoW SOD, and whatever the third one is WoW Classic WOTLK or something I'm guessing, you count as not only 4 MAUs but also 4 subs.

          It's been this way for years. They're incredibly shady in how they report their user numbers.

    Classic surely brought back a lot of terminally addicted customers but judging by the server pops they didn't stick around. If they did have 7 million subs you can be sure they wouldn't "leak" it via an unmarked anonymous graph, 1.7m seems more likely a number with the bulk of that being classic.

    The only reason to even play WoW anymore is if you're a sweaty minmaxxing raider. The game showed casuals the door years ago, and then begged them to come back with Classic's marketing, only for them to again be shown the door by the sweaty minmaxxers who took over Classic.
    There's no helping it, that's the game Blizzard made. All it has is raiding. It's insane how much content they've made to be utterly disposable and how they took out progression (the second most satisfying thing about MMOs aside from social interaction) except for the very last step, which is raiding current content for gear.

    It used to be that you could start a new character and have a great time going from the starting zone, to early dungeons, to different zones doing group quests and crafting to get incrementally better gear. It all took time so each new piece and level felt meaningful.
    Then WotLK introduced heirlooms and then they nerfed experience to be something like a quarter of what was originally needed and you essentially just skip all the way to the end because it's the only thing that matters.
    It's miserable to play.

        I personally just think they should have focused on ensuring zones were still useful after players had finished leveling/questing in them. Gathering, crafting, and stuff like OSRS's Slayer or XIV's Hunts should have been copied.

You need to update and maintain 3 versions of ur game and all of the revenue is shared. Still nothing on their peak when 50 dollar expansions were dropping every 2 years and selling 20 million each plus sub on top.. though they did say one store mount was more profitable than an entire starcraft game so blizz drones are just moronic. Will never drop the game and continue to be milked dry.
