Have you ever thought of how much money Blizzard earn on WOW!

If lets say at some point wow had 11 million subscribers that pays 12,99 EURO a month each year. That means 12,99 * 11 000 000 = 142890000 EURO so each month Blizzard earn 142890000 EURO!!! That means on a year they earn 1714680000 EURO!!! and they're still thinking of closing down BlizzCON cuz its not profitable enough, and what are they doing with all that money?

    I'd assume they're paying their thousands of employees a salary, keeping their buildings up, and keeping their numerous expensive servers up (or at least trying to), among other things.

    But what do I know?

    I seriously don't know what this thread is about though, so why did I post? God if I knew.

    There's always a side of the story regular people like us don't know about.

    They are constantly talking with ad companies, sales companies and distributing companies about the game and its products, even if they make that much money, most of it is spent to maintain the money flow and such.

    Think about that, then think about the fact that they are going to charge a monthly subscription for BattleNET when Diablo 3 comes out.

    WHAT THE FUCK BLIZZARD.

    I thought they decided not to make it subscription based, to keep it with the original diablo fanbase.

    All that money must mean a lot for you, but they use it to pay people who work there and stuff. Of course the owner/s keep the rest of the cake.

    I'll bet about 10-30 million of that is actually banked for profit.

    They throw all of that money into pits and burn it.

    Now how about we ask a more sensible question this time?

    You post was lacking curse words. Therefore it was overlooked.

    I tend to act more civilised and avoid the use of curse/swear words, it's my thing.

    No, no, no. Haven't you heard? When you type anything on the internet it must include the following:
    • At least one curse word
    • Something unoriginal and overused
    • One long run on sentence, followed by a two word statement
    • A disagreement about something. It doesn't matter what it is or how stupid your point may be
    • The use of the triple periods (e.g. ...)
    • One or more words typed in all capital letters
    • Three or more typos, even if your post is one word long
    • A made up word

    What does this all look like in practice you might ask? Well, I am positive you can find an example of it somewhere.

    Something on-topic: I could care less about what Blizzard Entertainment does with their money. Why not watch the news? See where your tax dollars are being spent? Maybe you could learn a new language, fill out a résumé, be a mentor to someone you care about.

    If they make it subscription based, No... Because you can merge a battle.net account with a wow account and use the same shit to log in everywhere.

    what a retarded question.

    renting the building to use for blizzcon prob cost more then you will make in you're whole life. because of the growing number of fans they need to rent a bigger building each year. and that cost cash..

    and as said already. they need to pay workers, keep servers up, pay for buildings, making new games and expansions, etc etc.
