    Exactly. They should have marketed themselves as alternatives and not replacements. Healthiest form of competition. No one's knocking the king off his throne with arrogance instead of actual results.

    I used to play a whole lot from the very beginning up until the same day they launched the f2p model, sure it had lost quite a bit of subs up until that point but for me the game died that day

    I don't think they floundered because they were touted as WoW killers. They floundered because they were flawed. They weren't WoW killers, but it would not have saved them to have avoided saying that.

    I played it for like a week back in 2014. It's not even on my new pc I got a few years ago, and I carried over other games from my previous pc to the new one.

    I actually enjoyed it when I was playing it. But then Godfather 3 happened with WoW.
