Q1 2015. Blizzard Loses 2.9 Million Subscribers. 7 Million Idiots Still Giving Blizzard Money.

For those of you that play WoW, don't care what Blizzard does or what direction the game goes in; this is not for you. Continue enjoying your game! Take your hippy Blizzard love somewhere else.

Those of you that continue to give Blizzard money even though you know that they are continuously fucking you over, post on the forums for years about how Blizzard has "lost their way" and don't give a shit about WoW as a game; come right in.

Let's start with the basics.

Blizzard lost the most subscribers they have ever lost in a three month period because WoD is the piece of shit it OBVIOUSLY was from the start:

This is what Blizzard said upon releasing their report to investors:

Blizzard Entertainment had the largest Q1 online player community in its history, up a double digit percentage year over year despite no major launches in the quarter. As expected and consistent with our experience following prior expansions, we saw a decline in the World of Warcraft subscriber number. Subscribers ended the quarter at 7.1 million. World of Warcraft’s revenue performance at constant FX has been more stable, driven by continued strong uptake on value added services, and price increases in select regions, which partially offset subscriber declines, particularly in the East. World of Warcraft remains the No. 1 subscription-based MMORPG in the world.

You know what the text highlighted in red means despite them trying to cover it up with bullshit language (I mean seriously, "strong uptake on value added services?")? 

It means that they don't give a shit about subscribers as long as they have enough players that will give them money for shit like character transfers, WoW tokens, pets, level 90 boost and all the other you players claim isn't "pay to win" (and WoW is P2W now no matter how hard you assholes try to morph the definition of it).

They don't give a shit about making a good game. They do however care about new ways they can stay longer (releasing expansions constantly for example) and making you pay for pay-wall content.

I mean Blizzard said in plain FUCKING ENGLISH :


That means, stop bitching if you are still PAYING TO PLAY WoW. You aren't helping by giving them money and praying that Blizzard sees the error of their ways.

You have morons now saying that Blizzard needs to release another expansion to FIX the expansion they they currently don't give a shit about....hahaha....

You people are stupid as fuck....ahhhh...

Not if you enjoy the game though!

Something grammar fix later yada yada.

The Secret World! Sub. Fee,Cash Shop and No Information Oh MY!

So...where to begin....

The Secret World had announced it's payment model back in August 2011:

I figure they would change it but...looks like they are going ahead with what I feel is a suicide plan.

By the way, this thread they posted it in, is made up of many angry pages and they have not even responded to it.

But back on point.
I had a major issue with cash shops+sub. fees to begin with but liked the fact they had to balls to announce it ahead of time. Probably a mistake,but none-the-less, admirable. 

However, my opinion on Funcom, EA and MTs in a whole:

This game, The Secret World, is the type of crap I hate about MMOs and these greed developers because not only are they "double dipping" in potential revenue but they have given very little information about the game to begin with. Even less than what we got from Bioware with SWTOR.

So, not only do we know little about how this game will play, but they want me to PRE-ORDER it?'s not a joke?

No. It isn't.

By little info, I mean very little actual footage of the game and no information on how much the monthly fee will be. Ironically, this is almost the same marketing method used by EA with SWTOR.

But they have information on the cash shop which is selling character slots because you only get three character slots to begin with!

And don't worry! You know this game will "more than likely" be a huge success due to the fact they are offering a "Lifetime Subscription" plan for a low price of $199 (which is alot more for EU)! Because if the game gets cancelled, like APB and Hellgate, that lifetime subscription 
will be worth it!

Note that EA was involved with APB and Hellgate:London ; both failed horribly.

I bring that up because this game is almost a mix between those two with a Champions Online cash shop twist!

Ahh yes. 

Dark Days are coming indeed...
