World of Warcraft is a beast. A beast to be reckoned with. For over a decade Blizzard’s top MMORPG has been dominating the gaming world. With over 12 million subscribers at its peak in a few years ago, and enough money to last a lifetime, the long-term growth of the franchise is slowly coming to a halt.
