    Thoughts on the Next Big MMO?

    8 year wow player here. Honestly I'm just waiting for the next big MMO to come out. Any thoughts or suggestions on what that might be?

    Elder Scrolls Online for sure.

    I already got rid of WoW. Got bored. But everything I have seen for ESO has been anything and everything I could want from an Elder Scrolls MMO. It merges the two game types together so perfectly. I am pretty stoked.

    Elder Scrolls Online looks to be "the big one" by all accounts. Massive budget, AAA production, well known brand, aimed at the mass market. Probably the most mainstream being released in the next 2 years or so.

    Wildstar looks fantastic too. Though will be a smaller game than the above.

    I just hope that it doesn't go down the drain like Rift or SWTOR....the supposed "WoW-killers".

    Right but the topic is what is the next big mmo, whether you like it or not doesn't it stop it from being the next big mmo.

    the next big MMORPG will be one that completely throws out the hotkey combat system for something more kinetic(like GOW-style actionRPG) while still maintaining the rest and pushing more personal story crafted by the player.

    i could see the elder scrolls MMORPG being big, IF they deliver on their extravagant promises.

    something i've noticed is more actiony MMORPGs working to try and get controller support for their games, so the first game to actually make the controller a viable play method will have a major advantage.

    cause atm they've been fucking it up, not using the analog movement of the joysticks(tera im looking at you), making the camera control(one game had the camera controlled by the D. pad, and no the right thumb stick wasn't even used at all for anything in the game) or the skill set up(one game had you most common attack be L1+X/square+A/X, A/X was the "commit selected action" button for ALL THE SKILLS).

    and nearly all of them don't allow you to change the control setup completely.
    it clear that these people don't even know how to work with the thing.

    Rift wasn't positioned as a WOW-killer. Also Rift still thrives with a huge expansion, active population, highly regraded PVP & development as well as maintaining a sub fee where other bugger budgeted titles had to go free-2-play.

    Rift is a fairly successful & critically well regarded.

    SWTOR wasn't a "WOW killer" either.

    Don't mistake fan enthusiasm for marketing. Only 2-3 MMOs have ever been positioned in the market as a "WOW Killer" or directly competing for the same player base World of Warcraft attracts.

    There has been only one mmo in the past 5 years that could have had any chance at that. It had the IP, huge fan base, top notch developer, and timing of when it launched. If that game didn't put a dent into WoW's fan base, no game ever will.

    But you know what, that's ok. As long as a game is good and has a healthy population then everything is alright in the gaming world (except for those folks wanting a wow killer for whatever reason).

    .
    bullshit, on both accounts.

    did you even see the rift ads? they were gunning for killing WoW, or at the very least were mocking it.


    and as for Sw:toR the devs themselves claimed they were going for WoW's head.

    Elder Scrolls Online
    WildStar
    ArcheAge

    Those are the 3 I look forward to the most at the moment. I'm following a bunch of f2p mmorpg's aswell. One being Neverwinter, it looks pretty solid, albeit not very innovative.

    It's basically a new MMORPG currently in closed beta. It's not really a continuation of the Neverwinter Nights series or anything, just a pretty standard MMORPG.
    As said, it looks really solid but doesn't really bring much new to the genre. It's sorta hack'n'slashy from what I could see, but not in the same style as TERA.
