Realistic with just a touch of flaire a non nnanyized mmo would fit a nice nitch slot i think
I hope they don't mess EQ Next up as well.

WoW is unkillable...even if Blizzard released "Titan", WoW will faceroll it.

Could you expand a little on what you want from a new engine that the game's current engine cannot be evolved to do?
well my american friend, maybe the engine as it is will do fine we only know when its been tested with something else that dont look my little pony adventure cartoons, yes and i know this is the style like it is at warhammer but nobody says it cant be changed out of the box of cartoonish to little bit more realistic.
I just feel like alot of the users have grown up since then. EQ2 gives you the option of two different types of graphics on character models, don't see why WoW can't. I think it would be a neat feature that would help the longevity of the game, sure its all about gameplay mechanics, but lets be honest, it doesnt hurt if a game looks great either........well, unless your vanguard at launch and noone can play you. (amazing game by the way, just got into it and really liking it alot.)
I'm quite certain that's what GW2 is.
Originally posted by Gajari I don't think Blizzard could strike gold twice with a WoW2. But they'd certainly get a ton of box sales. Still, the OP might be right. Everyone's trying to copy Blizzard's success, so maybe Blizzard needs to show them how it's done again. If they can. Maybe they can't. I don't have a lot of faith in Blizzard at the moment, 'cause D3 is kinda disappointing. Their next MMO in the works, Titan or whatever, might be pretty awesome, though. Who knows.
GW2 did not copy wow wich is why its superior
TSW did not copy wow
Archeage did not copy wow infact it will revolutionize the siege as we know so far
Blade and Soul while still in Beta in korea did not copy wow,but its an ncsoft game anw so i pass.
MMO'S start to change and it was about time.
wow is a failure now each expansion worse one after the other...cataclysm epic fail...MoP i wont mention that pile of shit..pokemons are not my thing,
they r better mmos coming than wow...archeage and gw2 are just an example

Add me to a WE. I would love a WOW2
I would agree with the OP - but I hate to say it, 2 faction games where the classes are just copy paste on both sides, in a world with very cartoony graphics and some very Disney'esque concepts (hey, I used to love wow pre Burning Crusade)...anyway, what would they do differently?
If they added a 3rd faction - that would be cool, but would they just implement the same classes three times? This might work for games like GW2 where W v W v W is just three copy pastes, but WoW would have to do better than that. Otherwise, why not just play GW2?
Things to make WoW 2 viable:
So three true factions, designed in Azeroth - maybe the old Azeroth like some of the expansion stuff had or a future Azeroth, who knows.
No mirrored classes! Sorry Tauren paladins and dwarf shamans, but seriously?
Tighten up the graphics
Keep improving pvp fun
That's about it I think. With the piles of talent and cash they have on hand, I believe they could really make the 1 mmorpg to rule them all....TWICE.
Until then, I am happy to wait for Elder Scrolls Online - where I just might get all that anyway.
WoW has evolved so much from vanilla, we're at like WoW 2 or 2.5 right now. So no, making a WoW sequel would be an absolute waste of time and resources. It won't happen, unless WoW dies someday. Which won't be any time soon.
What if you can't stand Azeroth, the lore... the characters, the species... or ANYTHING about Warcraft?
I don't think "we" need a WoW 2.
WoW 1 already ruined the MMORPG genre.
I don't know. The only incentive in a WoW2 is the freshness of building from the ground up again, and maybe not be limited to what could be now a archaic system. I think really I'd be more interested in a warcraft 4 than a WoW 2 though.
If Blizzard waits until GW2 and the other new MMOs on the horizon play their courses, then drops an MMO that improves upon everything they did to create another MMO with dynamic whatevers, then I will laugh my ass off.
Then sign up to play it.
Then watch as 10,999,999 other players sign up.
And then watch as people complain about it on MMORPG.com, even though they've been thirsting for the kind of gameplay it will bring since GW2's manifesto was released.
I hope so.
Please DO NOT count me in the "we" category.

I'm curious when Blizzard is going to talk about Titan or someone leaks it.. It's been years since I last played WoW, and it's been years since Titan was leaked.. I won't go back to WoW or WoWlike clones, but I am curious what Titan will be........ Currently I'm waiting for GW2.. Rift and TOR failed on keeping my attention past 3 months..

Same here, I'll be playing GW2 and Planetside 2, but I have been interested to see what Titan will be for years now. I wouldn't ever go back to the grind of WoW again, but still will keep an eye on Titan. If it's just another gear grind treadmill though, I'll pass.
