    Obsessive much?

    So, now you're asking how is something we don't know anything about that we have no idea when it be ready going to impact WOW.... And you wan't people to give specific answers... And you think its a rational question no doubt.

    Well it all depends on whether or not the aliens from the planet Juju have reached Earth yet as our need to fight off their nefarious plot may take precedent but I'm assuming when that happens WOW will lost about eleventy million subscriptions.

    You just wanted to hear people say that WOW will lose subscriptions, right?

    It seems pretty clear what you want people to say.

    My guess is that Blizz is going to have some kind of a transfer/migration plan/incentive for WoW players. Some way to "if you like it stay, if you don't, go back to WoW". Possibly even a combined monthly fee so you can play both games? There are many ways that Blizz can incorporate both games to actively co-exist. Don't underestimate the options since they are all under the same Battlenet roof.

    You only know nothing about it if you don't use the gifts nature has given you as a human being, reasoned anticipation.

    We do know the following:
    - It's listed as next-gen mmo (Meaning that it's supposed to redefine and feel like an improved version of current mmo standards)
    - it's highly likely that it will be subscription based (I can't see Blizzard moving away from that formula)
    - there's many rumors that it will be an MMO FPS (Although anyone remotely knowing Blizzard will know that it will have RPG elements)
    - It's very safe to assume that Blizzard will put a lot of energy and resources on making more publicity for their new next-gen mmo than for the older generation wow
    - Blizzard's "A team" of developers and artists is working on it (further indicating they hope it to become a very succesful game, and this success want it or not, ties in with the success of WoW (or the lessening there of))

    Ideally, Blizzard should want these two IPs to "rule the galaxy together." One shouldn't displace the other; they should coexist and complement one another with their differences and designs. Hopefully.

    Doesn't help us at all.

    You might be right or you might be wrong. There's nothing backing up this theory.

    - there's many rumors that it will be an MMO FPS (Although anyone remotely knowing Blizzard will know that it will have RPG elements)
    Because we all know rumors are accurate sources of information amirite?

    - It's very safe to assume that Blizzard will put a lot of energy and resources on making more publicity for their new next-gen mmo than for the older generation wow
    I don't think this is a safe assumption at all as long as WoW remains the cash cow that it is.

    - Blizzard's "A team" of developers and artists is working on it (further indicating they hope it to become a very succesful game, and this success want it or not, ties in with the success of WoW (or the lessening there of))
    We don't know this since, again, we don't know anything about the game.

    maybe there will be connection between them, Like EVE online and DUST 514?
    It would make sense with that codename and WoW lore is heavy Titan oriented

    This is my feeling almost exactly.

    I am sure that people that play WoW will play Titan, given that Titans status is presently very much unknown and they are reenforcing WoWs dev teams, I doubt you need to worry about it right now.

    Sorry, but that's just not realistic. Most people like to focus their attention and energy on one game, one main hobby. Even the FPS scene took a major hit in activity when WoW started growing, a lot of Counter-Strike clans died / transferred to WoW over the years. There's only 24 hours in a day... and most people don't have time to play two games, or don't even want to. Games being of a completely different genre isn't going to matter at all...
    THIS post sums up your agenda and mentality in a nutshell. You really aren't interested in anyone else's opinion, you don't believe there is any course of action but the ones you would take -- the pretending to care what others think is nothing more than the conduit for your agenda. All you want people to say is whether or not they will keep playing WOW when the next big thing comes around.... as if there isn't a massive sample size of data already on the subject of sure thing WOW Killers.

    This may shock you, but.... People with non obsessive personalities do just fine having more than one hobby. Some of us even manage to work in a full day's work, have active participation in a regular sports league, maintain a relationship with someone of the opposite sex, and still have time to goof off playing video games because we grew up enjoying them.

    The constant threads, your admission that you don't believe it's possible for people to enjoy two games at once, you've sort of outed yourself as that chick in Basic Instinct when it comes to being obsessive.

    Bunny rabbits everywhere should be very afraid.

    Your poor testicle... no doubt it will miss it's life long friend and wing-nut.

    I'm kidding, I have no opinion on what Titan will be, or be based on.

    I think you deserve a tinfoil hat. I'm merely intrigued with how Blizzard is planning to release an MMO which in my opinion, without doubt, will become very competitive with WoW. According to the production slate and conference calls Titan was planned to release Q4 2013 ...

    And the selection for the poll speaks books....
    There's no choice about that both have nothing to do with each other.
    And the most logic vote: "I have no idea what Titan even will be. How could I choose?"


    I vote for closing the thread..... No one really needs it.. We got a significant long one already.
    This one just feeds the OP's ego, nothing else.

    I'm going to agree with this statement. I love World of Warcraft, but I have no interest at all in Starcraft and very little in Diablo. I will obviously look into Titan, but I probably wont play.

    This is a really interesting idea.

    Physician heal thyself... Given your stance that Blizz is purposely sabotaging it's own market to ensure the success of a future endeavor -- Id say you've got the tin foil cap super-glued to your cranium.

    Again, you state your opinion and add "without doubt."

    Since you already know the result, the constant asking others what they think is rather disingenuous. You simply want a soapbox to push on with your agenda and to further convince yourself you are right.

    /wave, These are not the driods you're looking for.

    Enjoy your thread.

    Do you have any proof that the majority of those changes in the CS scene was due to WoW? In my experience, there is little overlap between FPS and RPG players.

    You might as well claim that chess competes for players with football or american football.

    A lot of baseless assumptions there only bent towards being personal attacks, great.

    Just because I like to gather opinions and see people's views, doesn't mean I'm going to agree with every single argument that might be made. I've learned a few interesting things from this thread, and if anything some other people seem to have learned more about Project Titan as well.

    As for the attention comments... I fully expect this thread to sink down to the forgotten recesses of page 2 very soon, so... yeah, no. It's pure interest regarding the subject. But liking a bit of attention isn't against forum conduct either though. xx
