World of Warcraft activity
Ghostcrawler, who due to the economic crisis has to work two jobs at Blizzard, developer and community manager, recently said that WoW subscriber numbers are still increasing. That may be, but how active are all these subscribers? I have a definitive impression that the "new - shiny" of Wrath of the Lich King has worn off. There appear to be less people turning up for raids, and I'm selling less goods on the auction house.
It appears as if everybody was waiting for patch 3.1, the raiders for Ulduar, the casuals for the other features. Is this something particular to my server, or do you observe a similar decline in WoW activity?
