World of Warcraft is an aging titan, a MMORPG set astride the field which none may challenge. It lays claim to over ten-million subscribers, or at least, it did until recently. The grip of the titan has loosened, and around one million subscribers have fled its shadow for other realms. Blizzard explains the drop in subscriptions with the the usual mentions; a long release cycle without content, an older game. There was also the elephant demon in the room, Diablo 3, which competes with World of Warcraft with the strength of the Blizzard name. Can the upcoming Panda Island Pokemon expansion re-invigorate the titan? Rock, Paper, Shotgun has the story.
