I'd play World of Starcraft. I would not play World of "Diablocraft". Just so sick of the fantasy swords and magic shit.
i don't see them cutting their own arms off with a diablo mmo, it sounds like a good idea but why would they do this if it would basically make everyone that plays d3 switch to the mmo.
also the dedicated fans that like d3 would be the only ones to bother with its expansions.
it all seems a little arse backward to me. also someone said that titan was hinted at being a FPS. its also probably bull, but even that seems more likely to me.
I'd much rather a Starcraft MMO. Fuck Diablo.
Diablo 40k. And I am not joking. It is a new IP but it Is not. It is not Warcraft, I has something from couple IPs (starcraft and diablo). It is a spinoff. Not fantasy (so no competition with WoW). You've saw it first!
And it have to Sandbox. If you want do something new it cannot be a themepark. It is so sad that every mmo on eu-us market is a themepark. SWTOR failed so hard because SW fans wanted to LIVE in that world not just make some questes. I love WoW but why should i switch for a game with more raids, dungeons, quests, dailies? I miss a good sandbox so much. Everything on the market is either low budget (poor graphics, lots of bugs, not enough ppl) or old (UO). Eve is nice but i want to play my Avatar not his starship. Archage looks promising but who knows... Blizzard has made a great themepark. Now they can make even better sandbox and rule them all (mmo market). PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Also Bobby Kotick, in 2010 Q2 Activision earning callings confirmed that Blizzard is working on brand new IP named Titan to the shareholders (And lying to them is pretty much illegal)
It's called "Project Titan". The Titans are extremely advanced lifeforms (as can be seen by all the futuristic tech in WoW). I'd like to think that translates into a futuristic MMO of some kid (as was previously hinted to).
Of course you always have Chris Metzen's quote from BlizzCast 12 saying "Will we see actual titans one day." Rather that's related to WoW or Project Titan I suppose we'll see...
/wave at mobs? It´s not that we have so much alternatives. All we can do is click something, and then something happens.
For me it doesnt change much if something dies on my click or i loot shit on my click or whatever i happens when i click.
there won't be a World of Starcraft for the simple fact that the format its in right now is too successful as an esports. they're not gonna take their best cookie out of the esports cookie jar.
if its loosely based on an existing IP, its definitely World of Diablo or even World of Sanctuary. the world of sanctuary has everything that azeroth had to fill all the expansions and raids and dungeons for the next 10 years or so, just like WoW. if you've played any of the diablo games and WoW, you'll notice that a lot of skills are borrowed from each other.
based on the yes/no to new ip go-around, i'd say it'd be an MMO set in sanctuary, but at a different time period than the current diablo games.
It's gonna be Activision strong arming Blizzard into making Skylanders MMO, lol!
I think a Diablo MMO would be awesome, but something new would be even better. As far as a Starcraft MMO, That would be disappointing to me because I don't really care for Sci-fi.
They did say it would be kind of like a First Person Shooter MMO, I'm thinking Starcraft would be ideal for this type of thing.

Jeff Kaplan on interview...
I think any type of [intellectual property] can survive. I'm shocked we haven't seen more sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic, historical MMOs; there's all these completely different fantasy settings beyond the traditional high fantasy ones." So is Blizzard's new MMO going to be sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic or historical? "All of those combined!" he said, laughing.
It would certainly be a nice addition to their other franchises.
