@Seríssa, Flix, Uruk, Tahen, Zalren and others: I do understand that WQs are not to everyone’s liking. Unfortunately, that is not something I can fix. I am also well aware that many people are not interested in many alts as I am (and some others are). It is also most unlikely that there would be major changes. One thing that Blizzard might eventually do is to edit the BfA WQs in a way similar to what they did to Legion ones. It will not make them any more fun for those who simply detest them, but possibly at least some future unlockers will have a slightly easier task ahead of them. I do have to note that I am just guessing here, not in position to make any promises. Despite the green text, I am from your view point, just another player, nothing more…
@Zalren: I am sorry that I kept you waiting for this reply. Unfortunately, as I noted earlier, I am not well today. sighs in physical pain I ran the other method and ended up as follows:
US minimum 944 148 active accounts.
EU minimum 923 533 active accounts.
I do have to note that what I already feared last year, has now happened. Some WCR data points are so weak that it is ridiculous. Existing limited data suggests that at some point during early morning, US horde factions have an average population of 2,1 characters and EU ones… less than 1,3… Which obviously can not be correct. Unfortunately, we have reached a point, where there is nothing I personally can do to fix the situation. I can only note that as far as I am able to tell, US and EU regions each still have far more than 900 000 remaining active subscriptions.
I am going to see, whether I could somehow squeeze something more out of what is available, but at this point, I am forced to admit such a stroke of luck is not likely. One area that I do intend to investigate is whether I can find some additional correlation between my older posts and WCR activity update charts… Which appear to be giving out slightly positive signs, but I need to double check that I have not made mistakes (as months have different lengths, they require slightly different calculations).
@All: Good afternoon to all! lumbers off to rest for a bit, holding on to his stomach, looking more than slightly pale (more than usually)
