    Will there ever be a MMORPG that defeats WoW?

    Hello, As title says, Will there ever be a MMORPG that defeats WoW? and if so, what company will make it?

    Let the battle BEGIN!

    There is no battle.

    No, the only thing that can kill or defeat WoW is that blizzard decides to end it.
    People have played it to long and are to attached to their characters, guilds and friends for it to die.

    WoW is the McDonalds of MMORPGs.

    The Top 40 channel on the radio...

    Not sure if I want another one...

    And why is that?
    People have said this the last 3 years and the game is still doing great.
    im willing to bet almost anything that WoW will still be around in 5 years and will still have lots of players.

    Just ask yourself this:
    You have a company and your main thing is to sell hamburgers. You have this burger called Woopper of Whallop that sells for millions each month, its by far the most selling burger in your menue and also by far the most selling burger in the world. Would you stop selling it?

    Well, if you say yes to that you are terrible and making money

    Inb4 "Titan will beat it"

    Jokes aside, MMO genre was defined by WoW, nothing can beat it unless Blizzard themselves decide it will be taken down.

    Why does every MMORPG that comes out have to beat WoW? Also GW2 did not fail, because it did not try to "kill" WoW in the first place.

    I doubt it. Most people who play wow have zero expectations from Blizzard. When they did not release any content for a whole year they only lost 25% of the player base. Since the people who remain are happy with nothing they will never be tempted to leave for another game. When you are not only happy with nothing but actually defend the company who gives you nothing you ain't ever going to leave them. With such a large chunk of the mmo market stuck in that mind set i cant see another mmo 'defeating' wow in the numerical sense.

    Happily several games already defeat wow in fun. We have enough mmos now that you don't have to beat anyone. Play what you enjoy and let the other guy play what he does.
    I'm a Forsaken. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

    Well, they don't. But the idea IS to make a game that's appealing enough to players of mmos. And since a very significant number of those players play world of warcraft, it is fairly ideal to make your game exceed wow at what it does best.

    I for one think the market for gaming is always growing and welcome new competition in finding more "fun" things to do. But mmo's aren't for everyone and I don't even think they will be the big thing in the gaming industry down the road.

    Sure, in the future there will be another MMO that bypasses WoW, but there is no battle as to who or what it will be. In the current state of things, the only way for WoW to die would be if Blizzard decided to shut it down. With more than 9 million active accounts, it is very unlikely that it would die within the next year as you state it will OP. If they have 500,000 active players, it is still a success, and with as much money and fun as this game has made and makes, it can still go on for quite a few years to come.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    Yes there will be. It just needs to be next gen. Truly next gen, not just a WoW clone with better graphics and a few gimmicky extras.

    WoW is not the McDonalds in the gaming world. People always need to eat.. food doesn't evolve:P I think the tastiest foods 1000 years ago were as good or even better as they are today. Technology on the other hand evolves. WoW is already showing age, it's just that nothing truly revolutionary or new has come out to provide competition. It's just more of the same in a new package so far.

    Far from it, WoW took a lot of inspiration from other games, and was hardly the first MMO either.

    This is where you lost credibility.
    You may not enjoy it right now but so many more people obviously do.

    WoW doesn't need "defeating". MMO's like Rift or Guild Wars 2 are doing just fine from what I've seen. Hell, Everquest is still going strong with continuous expansions.

    People are dumb enough to think that A will have to beat B always because they share the same genre, even if the game itself has a different approach to the genre and to the business mentality

    If MMO's were failing we wouldn't see this high ammount of new games in the industry.

    I think he means that WoW took those features and refined them to become MMO standards. Defining what future MMOs would need to compete.

    MMOs before WoW were more or less just constant grinds. WoW is the casual little brother of the MMOs that came before it.

    I'm praying they launch another big and consistent MMO because wow just plain sucks now.

    WoW is more than a game. It covers generation(s?) with its culture. I won't easily forget the fun times I had with the community and alike.
