Oh I would heartily agree with those points and no offense taken btw. My statement that 10 million subscribers must mean fun was also meant as a cynical remark tageted at the imo somehwat simplistic message in Anet's blog that subscription must mean boring content (thats not all they said I know but the message was there). WoW succes is not solely derived from it being an uber game and all others sucky, a lot of it has to do with timing, friends, character loyalty etc as you stated. What I am firmly against however is the theory that all those 10 million subscribers are hapless victims of Blizzards superb means of mind controll. I tend to give gamers a bit more credit then that and certainly my friends that are still playing it.
