    Exactly and that mentality alone is the most refreshing thing to happen to the industry in years. I'm so tired of everyone trying to top WoW, it's never going to happen the MMO market doesn't work that way anymore. Hopefully going forward it's far more often to just see MMO's come out that want to be their own thing like Wildstar does.

    Yes exactly I agree aswell, that was one of biggest pull Wildstar had on me at the beginning & still does today. Carbine is just trying to make a great game for their community & they are prbly flattered their game is being compared to WoW, but of course people have to always go to extremes thinking so & so game will kill WoW. Yet we say it time & time again the only ones that can kill WoW is Blizzard.

    Wildstar is a really good game & a nice change of pace, but its isn't revolutionary & isn't as amazing as people portray it. That is just hype & setting high expectations that will not only hurt the game in the long run, it will hurt Carbine aswell.

    They have at no point in time ever tried to oversell themselves and they actually love WoW and respect it for being as important as it is to MMO's as a whole.
    The only people trying to say it's a WoW killer are people that dislike WoW. It's an MMO that want's to be it's own thing and it's not even attempting to be a competitor with the elephant in the room. That's why it'll be successful, because it's doing it's own thing not trying to copy. It'll have a decently sized core fanbase and that's totally fine. I still haven't decided if I wanna move over to it when it comes out but listening to the Dev's and seeing what the community is like already I'm seriously considering it.
    No other MMO ever said they were "WoW killers" either. The only ones that dared challenge WoW publicly were Warhammer Online and Rift. One is already dead and the other is gone F2P

    Seriously, find me one instance of developer from GW2, SWTOR, FF, ESO who ever said their games are "WoW killers". NO ONE in the industry dares say that anymore. The only ones yelling "WoW killers are WoW fanboys themselves who try to mock the game who presents any competition to WoW

    I see a shit ton more hype for Wildstar than ESO nowadays. 700 pages of discussion in the VG section? Named #1 most anticipated MMO from Mmorpg.com?

    To which I hope Destiny does well also. Not fun having a bunch of WoW like games. If I wanted WoW then I would play it.

    I like wildstar because it's more cartoony + moar tits. But in the end the too-cartoony atmosphere will scare the players away, maybe some will stay for the tits.

    Wow combines the seriousness or a vicious world with the comfortable feel or a cartoony atmosphere. And that will never change no matter the tits. I hope lawl.

    But that's because everyone except of people that deliberately ignore facts know how big of a fail ESO will be.

    As for the 40 man raids, we don't know if these will be actual, hard, instanced raids. Could just be some more complicated world bosses. Or it could be something like WoW's Wintergrasp or Tol Barad. 20 man raids should be what they focus at. And I'm sure they will switch to 20 man model when it turns out 40 mans are not as popular as they expected.

    I also don't understand why people are going "THEY WANT TO MAKE THIS GAME LIKE VANILLA WOW". They never said that. They said they want to capture the unique feeling vanilla WoW had. Its social aspect. Not make this vanilla WoW in space. I'm sure they are as well aware as we are that vanilla WoW was a bad game. Now I'm not into beta but after watching a lot of gameplays I can say they are doing a good job at it.

    Unsure if this topic even belongs within the general wow discussion, who knows. As well, rumors is not really a source.

    And so what if they did? Blizzard switches teams a lot, and some running on project contracts. It is possible, though still, waiting on a source to be updated on the first post of the OP.

    I don't see why anyone would want to work on Wildstar, I've been in the beta, it's WoW in space with GW2 combat. The devs even said: "At one point you will have to become invested in the game if you want to do any of the cool stuff."

    Yeah, fuck that, I've had my pre-BC and BC grind/life sink gaming experience, getting reputation for 15 million factions just to get a key which would allow me to grind more reputation so I could get one item which would allow me to grind raids to grind ever more items, repeat to infinity.

    They can keep their monthly fees and their "we want to bring back "rewarding" MMOs for those who invest time in them" mentality. This is 2014. Many old school MMO players are burned out with this system, and are looking towards MMOs who feel more like games instead of second lives, which WoW devs have realized and have adapted to, otherwise this game would probably have even less players today.

    10 minute raid buffs and 5-6 different potions/elixirs/flasks combinations requirement every raid night multiple nights a week, woo hoo, yeah no.

    Also, it's tacoS not taco's learn to spell ffs.

    The last several pages have been more about Wildstar and random stuff than about Greg Street so this will be closed.

    It's not surprising really because Street has already indicated that he's not going to another MMO like WoW. Whether or not that's true remains to be seen. In any case this is really no longer about the topic--not to mention the topic was misleading to start with since 'the development team' went there nine years ago--and there are more and more posts that could be infracted for game bashing so instead of doing that we'll close it up.
    If you have anything to contribute to a thread topic, please do so. Discussing moderation or calling out specific people is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Please report problem posts. If anyone is unclear about the rules please read our FAQ. Thanks.
