I just don't get it. Even when I'm unhappy with game I think it's sad to see so many sub losses. There are some of you literally squealing with delight at the quarterly report...Why? If you want to see the game fail so badly, why are you even still playing? If you aren't playing, why is it of any importance to you?

I don't know that people are truly happy about it. If anything, when people take issue with the current state of the game or some of our design decisions, a decrease in subscribers serves as some sort of confirmation that others must feel the same as they do -- validation that their point of view must be right, or at least shared by the masses.

No one's ideal image of what World of Warcraft should or shouldn't be is truly right or wrong, and we're still committed to making it the best experience possible.

Some people will respond to this post with, "Well, then why did you do X?" or "You shouldn't have made Y decision." in addition to the more cynical reactions that call into question our level of passion for, and commitment to, this virtual universe.

The truth is that there's never really a single silver bullet to game design that is the savior, or destroyer, of a game.
