SOE is doomed
Just one less humorous afterthought on MMORPG companies losing subscribers: Technically SOE has zero players for all their MMORPGs together right now. When these games will be back up at an unspecified future date, SOE will still not have any revenue for another month, because they are handing out free 30-day subscriptions to everybody affected. And after that they will have to see how many people still trust them with their credit card data.
I do think there is a non-negligible chance of SOE closing shop, or at least significantly down-sizing the company, before the end of the year.
