Lots of people on here make valid complaints against this turning into a possible WoW clone and now is a great time to voice those concerns, rather than when beta comes out. There's also a good deal of "blah blah blah, WH40k is nothing like WoW, WoW stole from Warhammer, derp derp derp" going around. Speaking as someone who doesn't want a WoW clone I have to correct this confused opinion that's rampant among the fan bois.
Regardless of Warcraft and Starcraft being Warhammer and Warhammer 40k based games, World of Warcraft as a game is what it is regardless of the IP involved. It's a medium. As an MMORPG it has specific rules and limitations that determine how the game plays out. WoW did a good job being WoW, but pretty much every other MMORPG after has tried to remake that specific type of MMORPG medium. It doesn't work. Those games always end up failing. THAT is what we're talking about in regards to WoW clones.
IP aside, the game stripped of the colour and fluff and story elements is what has become stagnant. If we wanted WoW we'd play WoW, it does it better than any of the wannabes. Let's see a DAoC clone with a Warhammer 40k skin, hmm? Wouldn't that work just fine? I think it would be the next big success in MMOs. Even if it just made the history books as an amazing tour de force during a bleak time in MMO history, it would still be as successful as any of the other failures littering the market. Better to be loved and fail than to end up as something a drunk turd wouldn't kiss and still not make back the money you put into your expensive as fuck WoW clone.
