She'll be alive for years yet. Not with the same playerbase perhaps but the servers will be online for atleast a decade imo.

With 8.3 million other subscribers still playing, I wouldn't break into sweat just yet.

Hell, don't they always lose a bunch of people towards the end of an expansion only to add more when the next one comes out?

Well problem with WOW stagging numbers, is the china market. In china they pay by minute not per month. So if Mr.gold farmer logged in for 30 sec this month and payed less then 5 cents in that is same as a U.S. player pay for a month sub in the 8.3 million count. At the height the rumor was 50% of player base came from china, given their sub pricing the fact very few games get a china release that % has grown I'm guessing.
Don't get me wrong I am sure they have well over 2 mil typical subs but that number is in a very staggering decline and will be the number that kills wow or makes it go F2P.

Since when was Exodus ever a  "top" raiding guild? Unless I'm confusing them with another raiding guild that is infamous for cheating.
