the amount of damage control Blizzard is being forced to do is truly amazing. I dont think it will be enough tho

With World of PandaCraft they have digged their own grave

"never heard that before"

Do they charge $15 per month fee to the Asian market that they are obviously targeting? They can scream that they have x million subs but the bottom line is the $$ per sub. This time next year should shed some light on total sub lose from 2011 and if they're still on the decline.

They offered a free copy of Diablo 3 and entrance to the beta with a year sub with WoW.

No damage control needed.

They aren't appealing to the Asian market, these pandas were around since WC3

and since your bringing in $ per sub WoW's profit margin has GONE UP not down, that should tell you a bit about which subs it's been losing, west or east

@(Unverified) : Western WoW players have been begging for Pandaren for years. It's one of the most requested things in WoW's history.

Exactly. They lost subs after Cata and they are now willing to throw Diablo 3 under the bus to get their behemoth looking good to their investors again. Whoa, sweet! WoW subs have gone up again, guess we didn't screw up as bad as we thought with the last expansion! Whew, we can go back to being lackadaisical about development!

I'm sensing that Blizzard is getting worried that Kung Fu Panda isn't exactly being well received. Well at least the D3 bribe to stay subbed to WOW is going to arrest some of the sub leakage.

You just get the feeling that Blizzard is swimming in shark waters and have just noticed they have a couple of cuts on them.

It's a shame, Blizzard used to be such a good company once upon a time. Least that's something they sahre with SWTOR... George Lucas used to be good once too...

Now look at him.

@mmogaddict Activision is killing Blizzard. EA is killing Bioware.

Two great production houses done in by greed.

You should blame on the logic of economy. They are forced to present increasing revenues and profits every year to shareholders and are expected to beat analists expectations or be labeled as disapointing.
They then get desperate to grab money from people and reach a point that the average customer will say is enough. And on that point the decline begins...
