WoW. I've tried some of the other games that are currently out on that list and to me personally, the MMO was complete garbage or felt too much like WoW. I am all for trying different games and I'm not a fan boy, but to me WoW is still the best MMO on the market despite what a lot of people seem to think. Come MoP, I really do think Blizzard will pull out all the stops. They have no choice and will bounce back. As for GW2, it looks interesting, but there are a few things they don't have like mounts which is a big draw back for me. Yes, it's a little silly and I will still probably give it a whirl, but no mounts just isn't the same.

GW2 simply isn't going to be like that. With it's lack of subscription fee, the larger patches will probably be replaced with expansion packs and smaller patches will be bug fixes and the occasional addition of quests and NPCs, rather than adding a new raid or dungeon a couple times a year on patch day.
Not a bad thing. It's going to be an amazing game in my opinion, but not something that will retain it's longevity over great periods of time if someone is focusing all of their gaming schedule on it.
Just my perspective.
A person who wants to stop and smell the cyber roses still has the option to do so whenever he wants, as often as he wants.
Mounts aren't strictly a Warcraft thing. Having mounts doesn't necessarily make a game WoW-like either. That seems a bizarre association.
As Fencers said, they're no where near a WoW exclusive feature.
Like introducing (1-3) 8-12 man istances , like <<The Deep>> from GW1 , with an x-pack , every 6 months > 30 dollars/6 month= 5 dollar total per month ?
While the max lvl will be 80 for the next 7 years (like GW1 > 20 lvl max) > so if u stopped playing for a while-or u are playing only pvp-or if u dont like that specific content of that expansion > u dont have to buy any of them > but choose the specific u and ur guild like for PvE ?
EDIT: Ahhha sorry didnt see: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-in-game-store .
No need for digital x-pack copies for implanting minor areas/istances > they will have microtransactions , for everyhting else (not for raids-and maybe they wont be any ).
(PvP scrub bg hero here ,trying to tone down the tension , dont shoot !)

GW2 : Plzbegentle - Ruins of Surmia EU - Sylvari Engineer
WoW: Vergin - Deathwing EU - Elf Resto Druid (27/05/05 - 02/04/12 Perma-Banned- Unhappy whinning PvP customer - whos begged from 4.1 to get rid of the RNG of Regrowth ... )
It seems ppl have the energy to whine for a game , for not beeing exactly like their <<main>> game , while it dont have a SUB , and they dont have the courage to whine at their Game Master for slacking and producing few PvE content ...
All depends if it lives up to the hype, which ever is best of GW2 vs MoP will get all my game time.
