    Going by that logic no star wars mmo should be allowed to exist after LA messed up with teh last one.

    Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"

     How many successfull star wars games have been put out. A ton, LA was involved in everyone of them because Star Wars belongs to LA there is no way around it. Why is SOE making another star wars MMO at the same time that TOR is coming out?

    because it's Star-Warsy.

    While the site may still be called MMORPG.com; it has been evident for a long time that they are covering more aspects of computer and console gaming... if you did not notice that, it is nobody's fault but your own.

    I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

    If they have Sw clone wars listed as  MMO they may as well put down Mech assault 2 as a MMO while they are at it. Honestly the only MMO SOE should have on MMORPG.com is Planetside NEXT

    Its here so SOE trolls have something to focus their rage upon. But you knew that didnt you OP? ;)

    WOW isnt great because it has 12 million players. WOW has 12 million players because its great.

    Ok, here's the deal. Currently, nobody in the public has played SWCWA, and we have very little information to go on. That being said, the information we do have very clearly shows that this game is not an MMO even in the way FreeRealms is, as CWA is said to only have a central hub for socializing (the Jedi Temple), and that's about all we have to go on, no 'world' to explore even comparable to it's big brother. Now, we can argue semantics 'till we're blue in the face about what makes an MMO, but to me, an online browser based game where carbon copy station cash bought 'avatars' barely have the ability to meet people while doing the same 6 minigames does not an MMO make.

    If SWCWA has a section in these forums... so should Rockstars "Red Dead Revolver" (as it has a FAR more robust multiplayer aspect).

    What other games that are clearly NOT MMO's are more MMO that SW CWA? I'm sure there's plenty.

    It is funny, to say it is not a MMO - when - it has features that people are clamoring about in their favorite MMOs, eh?

    Depends how you define successful I suppose. Of the 30+ SW games out there only about a handful games were actually decent or better quality-wise. So if you define successful only by "made any sales" then yes, a ton. However, if you require any gameplay value then no, not even a quarter of the SW games were successful.

    I don't think anyone has been clamoring for an "mmo" solely comprised of mini-games.

    It is funny, to say it is an MMO - when the page you link us to also does not make that claim.

    What is Clone Wars Adventures™?

    Clone Wars Adventures is a brand-new action-packed online game where you can experience the thrills and excitement of Star Wars:

     

    Fable 3 is more MMO than SW CWA!

    Since the most people you can actually play the game with is 2, I don't think it passes the massively multiplayer test of an mmorpg.  For that matter there is no RPG quality to the game either.

    It is simply a chat lobby with minigames tacked onto it.  It is neither massively multiplayer nor a role playing game.

     

    We might as well start calling farmville and diablo mmos if this game is going to be listed as an mmo.

    Right.  This site lost their identity a long time ago.
