Oh no! Now their profits from subscriptions have gone from 153 million to 136 million!

First world problems.

I doubt it will kill it, but, this game has to be taking a chunk out of their numbers given it's no-subscription model, attempt at destruction of the trinity, much more fun gameplay and imminent launch.

Sure I can. I currently have a 2000 dollar internet bill to pay off by the end of this month.

IMO, Guild Wars 2 isn't going to kill WoW, just like Guild Wars one didn't. ArenaNet isn't trying, and that's why they're successful at what they do -- making their own thing, not trying to follow the MMO mold.

Guild wars one and guild wars 2 are a completly different game. Guild wars 2 is going to be the best pvp game since Dark Age of Camelot. I'm starting at launch, everyone I play mmo's with have all had very positive experiences with the beta's.

There are a few fundamental problems with the game, but it's obvious the Diablo 3 team is hard at work to address them. For example, the Diablo 3 Forum at Battle.net is in shambles at the moment. However, the community leadership team implemented by the game creators is determined to clean up the general trolling and otherwise obnoxious behavior presently clouding any sort of flow of constructive communication. Here is a link to one of the game forum's community leaders addressing this very concern:

It's to be expected, the game is like 10 years old or more (including developement time). It's really showing it's age compared to recent MMO's. Personally I haven't touched MMO's for a few years now.

The steady decline has been happening since early 2010 and briefly last year the subs fell below 10 million and that is when the Free to Play up to level 20 was added which balanced the numbers and its been sitting at 10 million till now, every one knows that WoW is getting outdated and people are getting way bored and moving to other better F2P options.

Also the fact that WoW has a lot of other Free 2 Play MMOs to deal with I am surprised they lasted this long but one thing is for sure, WoW is eazy peazy now and the fun and friends you made along the way from months of grinding levels 1-85 is long gone.

WoW is like this now "level 1 yesterday, level 85 today, ilevel 403 ruthless PVP gear to marrow" there is zero effort what so ever, the fun and time spent is gone.

How will you ever recover from such trauma?
