    Honest question here: D3 is already out now. Why is the xpack going to change things so completely that it'll fill some void that exists now that D3 doesn't? I realize this sounds snarky - the xpack sounds good, but not "now I don't have to play MMOs anymore" good.

    I'm sure that part of the reason for this is that the beta is weekends only and the last one was in November.... That being said ESO is certainly more of a challenger than Wildstar is the game is much better

    I see folks claiming that others are saying this.... but you almost never read someone actually making that statement. Odd, isn't it?

    SPOILER ALERT: It is

    I am reluctant to go into details, but its bad, probably going to be one of the worst launches since SWTOR

    All I'm going to say is that I wasn't impressed.

    Yeah, its not great. It will be a distraction for some much like swotor was, but like swotor, will lack staying power.

    WoD expansion boss, Medivh! Calling it now!

    I'd say the % of WoW players who joined because of TV ads is pretty low.

    Anyway, false dichotomy.

    Anyone counting on ESO or Wildstar to save them from their MMORPG slump will be disappointed. Neither game is anything special IMO and at most will only suck up a month or two of everyone's time before they go back to WoW (or quit MMORPGs altogether).

    Hopefully someday a developer will finally figure out what makes a good (modern) MMORPG and make it.

    Maybe GW2 doesn't have great servers, hence why there's a queue.

    If 100 people want to do an event, it may cause a queue, but it certainly doesn't mean the game is swimming in players.

    As for player numbers, they bragged when they had sold 1 million copies, bragged when they hit 2 million copies, bragged with they hit 3 million copies...and they haven't said a word about sales since, meaning sales likely haven't hit 4 million yet. Even if you pretend for a minute that every single person who bought the game is still playing, you're still dealing with HALF the amount of players WoW has...and the fact of the matter is, a lot of people who bought the game AREN'T still playing it.

    And one last thing about perception-let's say a game has 500k players(SWTOR has this many or more, and it keeps getting tossed around as a "failure" in this thread afterall). That's not a huge number of players, at least by WoW's standards. But if the game has 25k players or more logged on at any given time, it's certainly going to seem busy and active to the people playing it(like SWTOR and Rift alway do when I log on).

    You could seriously give a septic tank a run for its money. "Some people" "seem to claim"? Which people? How do you "seem to claim" something? You state that we won't know for sure until an official announcement, but that didn't stop you a few posts earlier from stating that Destiny was going to be a later PC release. Is that how you "seem to claim" something as fact?

    Of all the people posting in this thread, almost every one of your posts reeks of self-important, vapid bullshit. You aren't "in the know". Just stop.

    This is where we'll have to disagree then. You seem rather uninformed and not very up-to-date about the movings and shakings of the video industry, and with that your opinion is very suitable for this thread, as it's a load of ignorant opinions. There are 5 major MMO releases planned for 2014, most people in this thread only seem to be able to name two at best.

    But at least you're getting some points for not pretending to have played ESO beta and claiming it's bad like the others who posted extraneous and unfounded replies so far.

    ESO is awesome!

    also what are the other 2 mmo's? i know of Everquest and wildstar but what else is there

    The problem with new MMO's that have come out (some that have been very good) is that it's very hard to gain and keep a fan base. IMO, that's what it really boils down to. If you can't gain and keep people, it isn't going to survive long.
