Warhammer 40k has so much MMO potential. Would have a problem with factions, though, as no 2 races would work together (for long). I could imagine a great PvE 10-man raiding scene, storming hulks/hives etc, and large open world PvP.
Anyway, won't say much on it, as it doesn't belong in this forum. Would be nice to dream on though.
In truth i could really care less about what happens with WOW if SWTOR is a hit, Im just looking forward to this game and if it is a big hit like its gearing up to be, i only think about what it means for the furture of this game, not WOW.
ONLY thing that's gonna pull it above the pack of average is the franchise.

I'm pretty sure very few of the WoW player mass has ever played a warcraft game before.
No, the reason why WoW was so successfull is because they took everything people enjoyed to to in mmos before, they polished it, made it look great while still not too hungry for hardware. and the most important thing: they made it incredibly accessable and took the player by the hand in the beginning and introduced new stuff with perfect pacing. something all MMOs before, and most after, failed completely at.
and thats exactly what SWTOR needs to do, all of those things.
Bioware recently produced Dragon Age 2, a horrible game. So until I actually get to play ToR, I will continue to be skeptical about how successful it can actually be.
I would have to agree that the only way to truly judge the game is to have the opportunity to play it yourself for a little while.
WoW ran out of ideas long ago, their last innovation was bringing authenticators from banking to gaming. That was 2 years ago.
Now their R&D department consists of doing what other games are doing. They spent the last year removing class specific quest chains, and now all of a sudden class stories are important for MoP?
It's one thing if you bring actual details to discuss, but throwing out vague swipes at other games without justification isn't showing your full potential. WoW's MoP is dragging in pretty much what other games are doing. They used to bring their own ideas, but now this isn't the case (room for a different forum thread).
Please stop bringing up WoW did this, Blizzard did that into everything. We get it, you like a proven game and like to ridicule games not out yet.
Have high hopes for the future, or don't. But if you don't, please stop trying to bring everyone down?
why feed an obvious troll
It has an interesting premise, and I would enjoy playing it, but I don't like falling to hype, I did it with WAR and I did it with Conan. I'd rather be negative to the game, be proven wrong and come out happy than get all hyped up and it's just another conan game and get annoyed that I spent all that time and money for naught.
I want the game to be good, I really do, but until then I will it back and doubt the hell out of it so it looks better in the end if I am wrong.
I fell for Warhammer too btw. It was interesting, but my final days were spent sending complaint bugs/suggestions/tickets to Mythic back to back. No kidding I sent about 100. The game was not ready for release - I didn't read the forums, I didn't need anyone to tell me this, I knew it by playing it. I did like their PVP though, the best part of the game.
Buuutttt... that was then. No reason to be negative so soon. If the game goes out and has issues, by all means let it out. Why assume it's gonna suck before it even comes out? Warhammer was rushed, even when it was released people knew it was rushed. SWTOR took it's sweet time, however.
I know BioWare is bustin' tail to make it work, I saw the last patch notes (oops someone posted them on MMO-C but they were deleted fast) and they were impressive, the detail involved.
