Total Digital Dozen Hours: 15,073
For the fifth time of the last six Sundays, the amount of time Xfire players collectively spent playing MMORPGs fell between 15,000 and 16,000 hours. Sunday's 2.8% decline in time played was led by Star Wars: The Old Republic (-223 hours) while games seeing the biggest gains was World of Warcraft (+189 hours) and Neverwinter (+181 hours).
Three More Months - Last Thursday, Blizzard announced the release date for World of Warcraft's next expansion, Warlords of Draenor. Apparently, the news of new content, even three month's away, has members of the Xfire community excited, as the amount of time spent playing WoW increased by 2.8%.
Tyranny of Dragons - Neverwinter vaulted back onto the list after a one week absence on the strength of the release of Tyranny of Dragons on Thursday. The game's fourth module introduced a new class, the Scourge Warlock, as well as the new Dragonborn race.
New Kids Off The Block? Both Elder Scrolls Online (-170 hours) and Wildstar (-196 hours) continued their fall in popularity amongst Xfire members on Sunday. The two newest AAA subscription games are in danger of falling off the list within the next month, although a lack of competitors may wind up allowing the two to stay. Perhaps more worryingly for the two games is I could not find a ready event that would explain the big drops in interest this week.
