You gotta admit, world of warcraft is the Alpha of mmorpgs.

    I will only admit they had very clever marketing and timing.  Hell, I even had a blast during the initial Beta for WoW, but it's still the game that blighted the MMORPG community.  Fact.

    If "Alpha" means the most concurrent subs, then sure.

    I think he meant as in the top dog, and at a time he would have been right but many would argue whether that status still belongs to WoW. 

    Edit - If subs decides that status I suppose he's still right. I guess the question is what makes a game the alpha game?

    YAY! A game that I have no ties in developing, no stock in, and no affiliation with (save for the fact that I play it) is the alpha!

     

    Looks like I really taught those competitors a lesson or two in building a winning game.

     

    I am very proud.

    Blighted? Fact? No, not even close to a fact.

     

    Did it change the way MMO's are made and played? Yes.

     

    Does this mean for a fact WoW is a blight on the MMO genre? No, not even close. That comes down to opinion, not fact.

    [mod edit - stay constructive]

     

     

    Also, "Alpha" can be defined as either the first of something, or defined as the highest ranking of something. So WoW is the Alpha of the MMO genre.

     

    One of a few Dictionary definitions of Alpha;

    Alpha - Being the highest ranked or most dominant individual of one's sex

    Weird because THE SECRET WORLD is the highest ranking released game on this website.

    Therefore The Secret World is the Alpha MMORPG.

    Yes, because MMORPG.com how an MMO becomes the alpha. No wait, it doesn't.

     

    The thread clearly indicates MMORPG's, to me meaing as a genre, not this website.

     

    Also, I believe that numbers make up the alpha, not reviews on MMORPG.com.

     

    WoW beats every single other MMO with numbers by a clear mile, also, if we look at reviews away from this site it also beats every other MMO with the amount of good reviews it has.

    WoW pretty much mounts and impregnates all of the competition. Otherwise MMO developers would try something new.

    I believe the OP either needs to change his title or define what he/she intended "alpha" to mean.  WoW is neither the first nor the most popular MMORPG.  A simple search will show just how far off WoW is from either of these possibilites.  For example,
