Waze has 20 millions users world wide... They added 10 million of those users in the first 6 months of 2012... In June 2012, they added just under 2 million users... (http://www.waze.com/blog/waze-hits-20-million-users/)
You're over-thinking this whole ranking thing...

11300 / .01 = 1,130,000
That is, for that person to be a "King" there would have to be at least 1.1 million wazers in the state.
Yeah that was the cause, not the fact that the game was five years old and tablets, smart phones and other newer games were starting to steal gamers. Evercrack (aka Evercraft) used to dominate the MMORPG realm but then something new came out (called WoW) and it faded, before that it was Ultima Online. WoW has done a far better job of remaining atop the mountain, and making it more friendly to the casual gamer actually helped it stay alive as the PC game market has basically come to a near screeching halt when it comes to new stuff. Especially as the hardcorps gamer generation aged into family and job requirements.That's what Blizzard thought too in 2009 when they made their billion dollar game, WoW, more "casual player friendly", they then watched their subscriber base fall every year after.

So both of those would seemingly have been calculated when there were around 1000 users nationally. Recently I saw a user on the country weekly top 50 list who'd 'gone up' more than 3k places - meaning the local user base had at least tripled I guess?
