In three months time though the numbers may shift and Blizzard will be stuck in a bad spot. If they nerf the dungeons some people will cry foul. If they don't and the numbers have dropped the shareholders are going to demand resignations at the end of the first quarter.
I'm pretty sure Vivendi is giving Blizzard the benefit of the doubt on this one. For that matter, I think they've already most likely factored for the possibility of subscriber numbers wobbling a bit, it happens every expansion.
Having said that... seriously, it's been a few weeks; you're not going to be back to where you were at the end of the last expansion. It could take months to get to that point. IMO everyone needs a chill pill.
