When Warhammer launched (smoothly My business is told) the group of us who hit 40 first most stopped playing and went back to WoW. I joined after this during the early December and swept up to the slower leveling bastages and eventually many people were hitting 40 in late January. That is right around when Darkfall powerleveling opened and everybody jumped ship to try out the game we've been years and years for. I canceled my subscription last week prior to a 3-month period was up. Beyond all of us I believe you will discover only one or two bastages still hanging on their subscriptions.
after +6 years, i've cancelled my sub to wow about a year ago, after the most boring Cata exp.
today i enjoy GW2, which is the first mmorpg that i've called "better then wow", unlike aion, rift etc.
swtor gone f2p today, i advise everyone to check it out, its quite good specially on the story/leveling aspect. pve is quite nice, pvp is wow-like.
