I was reading this article and when I got to the quote by Greg Z of BioWare, I was kinda sad. It's basically admitting they went at SWTOR as a WoW clone, as what he seems to understand is WoW is how all MMO's should be...
"It [World of Warcraft] is a touchstone. It has established standards, it's established how you play an MMO. Every MMO that comes out, I play and look at it. And if they break any of the WoW rules, in my book that's pretty dumb."
I've met the man briefly. He's a genuinely sweet man. But I must respectfully disagree.... then again, I'm just a lowly writer and he's ballin' in the game's industry like there's no tomorrow so...
Still, I look forward to GW2/TSW where the developers looked at WoW and decided "nah, that's not our bible or blueprint."
BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.
