    A good example of an MMOF/TPS is defiance and firefall. (also, gw2, tera, and vindictus all involve aiming. EOS will probably as well)
    A good example of an MMORTS would be something like End of Nations.

    Personally, I'd rather it was completely new and had nothing to do with Diablo or Starcraft... leave them to their respective genres.

    Then again, it's all rumour so I'll just wait until I hear something that is actually official. Anyone can make up stuff like you read on that link.
    FYI, Titan will feature huge blood-sucking space vampires! (Obviously not true but you see my point. All it takes is a small amount of brain power to create a half decent and believable rumour.)
    Sometimes updated...

    That might be a little to close to a SC spin of SWTOR something I imagine they would want to stay away from, even if they thought they could improve it.

    Diablo is too close to Warcraft (fantasy). So I guess it's a F2P Starcraft MMO. That way they have a very stable fanbase in Korea and Starcraft is also getting two addons so the Starcraft hype will help to sell it a few months later. With a Starcraft MMO they cover all the Sci-Fi fans that never liked the Warcraft Fantasy Setting.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic?

    Diablocraft? Would it not be just World of Diablo? Why do we need to add craft on the end?

    That's like people who add "Gate" to stuff to make it like Watergate. "Ohh this is Mad Cowgate!" The hotel isn't called the Water hotel! Gah!

    Rage!!

    Also, nah. I can't wait till we get our first look but I doubt it has anything to do with Diablo.

    He said epic space battles.

    Galaga gave you more control over your ship than swtor.

    I remember a year or so ago there was some info posted by Boub that led us to believe this would be an MMOFPS, even including something along the lines of "The FPS aspect is likely here to stay.".

    Now, I know even what he came up with was all rumors and nothing concrete, but what information has come out since then (even if it's rumors) that leads us to believe the FPS aspect is now gone?

    When I wrote this I based this on the fact that Blizzard called Titan their new MMORPG, and I'm not really sure what the difference between an MMORPG and an MMOFPS would be, because even if it's a shooter it can still be an RPG, right? I mean you're playing a character. So what would you call this MMORPG then? MMORPGFPS? Also I mixed up FPS with RTS in my head, so at this point I have nothing against the idea that the MMO is a shooter. If it's Blackthorne it would even make a lot of sense.

    Diablo mmo, hmmmmm interesting I could go for that.

    Honestly though, starcraft makes more sense to me.

    Agreed.

    It would be something blizzard makes that I would actually buy.

    It would probably play a lot like mass effect 3 multiplayer.

    I don't think Diablo is really that close to Warcraft. Warcraft is more like Tolkien, with orcs and elves and dragons. Diablo is more about demons and angels and hell. It's certainly closer to Warcraft than Starcraft, but still distinctive enough.

    the problem I see though, would World of Diablo be THAT different to World of Warcraft? Sure on a lore basis they're far apart, but in pure mechanics it seems to me they'd be far to similar...

    World of STARcraft however
    What if the combat is action rpg hack and slash meets mmo. basic slashing dodging blocking and then specials with cds. kinda like tera or gw2.

    going to state the obvious without reading the whole thread Starcraft space mmo kinda thing. I'm sure Titan is a spaceship

    It's weird all that Diablo references, because Starcraft MMO seem like the logic decision, from lore content, then to concept arts that fit nowhere (cyberpunk), then to actual desire from the community, and capability to sell, and finally available niche to be installed.

    Besides, it's well established that it's a SPIN OFF. It's about some elements that are isolated from the series, and developed diverging from the usual way. Diablo is the LEAST prone to that, because everything is limited to Sanctuary and its 2 planes.
    WoW and SC have lots of explorers lost away from home, and they could even make a spin-off using people from BOTH IPs mixing.

    You have mage, hunters and warriors - it's the same. If WoW had an darker Burning Crusade it would have been like Diablo with demons from hell. I think Diablo is really not different enough to be another MMO beside WoW.

    Let's just hope World of Starcraft will not be a flop like Tabula Rasa. It's a shame TR is so unknown. It came too early, too much WoW hype stealing the focus.
