World of Warcraft sustaining heavy casualties!

  We are on the second quarter of 2011 and it has been confirmed that Blizzard has lost over 300,000 World of Warcraft subscribers, adding to the losses in the first quarter it mounts up to 600,000+ subscribers that stopped playing in this year alone.

As a result of the decline the developers are forced to find out other ways to please their faithful customers by other means other "adding random content".
"As our players have become more experienced playing World of Warcraft over many years, they have become much better and much faster at consuming content..." - Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime
  Yes either that or Blizzard has dumbed down the genre to badly that even the newest of players needs little to no experience to overcome what ever "obstacles" also know as 'content' to get their gear which seems to rain from the skies in WoW.

  Obviously we don't expect blizzard to blame them selves, so instead they choose to pat the back of their players and say "hey its because you're THE MAN", raising their moral and maintaining the corporate facade... a text book example of Public Relations to minimize their losses.

Blizzard should develop Warcraft 4 (a RTS). But having a big campaign like that of Warcraft 3, not as they did in Starcraft.

It's a fact. World of Warcraft is dying.
Blizzard should start developing another mmorpg.

WoW was once awesome... now it's just a chaotic bunch of easiness and shitty graphics.

world of warcraft stopped being as good a game after it's second expansion pack

Yeah, it's become a bit repetitive. Blizzard really need to think of something ground-breaking that will make the game as enjoyable as it first was.
