I guess WoW stopped losing subscribers last quarter.

It'll be interesting to see what happens at the next quarterly report.

It really doesn't matter as long as you enjoy the game.

i play both.
According to BioWare, I lack the imagination to get into the mindset of a species that doesn't have a pretty, human-looking face. I feel inclined to disagree http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/?r...ae0e4569459154

some people lack self esteem so in order to feel validated in their choices need everyone to agree that what they like is "better"
"bibo ergo sum" ( I drink, therefore I am)

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

Not really, It's when people start hating on your game that they get looking into statistics.

you forget just before SWTOR was released Blizzard offered the following

Subscribe to WoW for 1 year and receive


DIABLO 3 FREE
BETA ACCESS to Mists of Pandara.

I haven't played wow in over 5 years and if I had known about that earlier and I hadn't played SWTOR. I would have bought that in an second.

WoW has 7 years of an established fanbase.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

We all just need to give SWTOR time to develop, we are looking at a couple of years possibly before all the bugs are ironed out and the game is a little more stable and tweaked to perfection. Although you may not believe it but when WoW first came out it wasn't perfect.
