World of Warcraft loses 1.3 Million Gamers

The popular online role play game "World of Warcraft", which was released in year 2004, has lost about 1.3 million subscribers in the first quarter of the financial year.

Furthermore unchallenged, MMORPG World of Warcraft now remains with approximately 8.3 million active gamers on the first place of MMO-rankings, still having a clear lead over competing titles. However, the losses are startling. According to Activision Blizzard, most subscriptions have been cancelled in the Asian region. Moreover the strong concurrence with its free-to-play titles is a major problem for the publisher. Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, made following statement:

"While we do believe further declines are likely and we expect to have fewer subscribers at year-end than we do today, World of Warcraft remains one of the most successful franchises in the history of entertainment."

Blizzard already works on a fifth expansion for the MMO World of Warcraft.

probably because massive bans of botters.
and thats the death of wow. see the truth. 99% of wow players are to lazy to farm.
on most of the servers, raw materials doubled or trippled in price already. regular players, who hate farming are not able to buy raw meterials already.
gold buying is also hard now. botters are banned, gold prices go up.

before this massive banhammers: rawmat=30gold, buy 1000 gold= 50cent.
for just 50 cent you were able to buy 33 stacks of your rawmat for raidbuffs or whatever.

now: rawmat=60g, goldprice 1000gold=80 cent.
now you can just buy 16 stacks for 80 cent.

and i dont believe, casual players will ever start to like farming again. blizz taught them well to be lazy and just do dailys, lfr raids
