    Um.

    Which is the only part of your posting thats not pure speculation, isnt it ?

    Anyway this alone is more than enough for me to not care about this project at all, since I view social networks as riddiculous constructs that allow a single company to collect tons of data of people. I'm certainly not going to join in.

    Blizzard are like bioware, used to make good games but are now riding on their reputation. Just that bioware started the decline earlier.

     

    Biowares last good game was Dragon Age: Origins. Not that long ago ?

    Maybe the Mass Effect stuff IS good too, I wouldnt know. Its a console game with strict copyright protection stuff on it, and its not really a roleplaying game, so its not interesting to me.

    Either way Bioware started its decline when EA bought the company.

    DA:O was planned to be PC only, with multiplayer. EA made it PC and Console, no multiplayer. DA2 was nothing but a moneymaker, as a game it was a joke. SWTOR became one huge WoW clone, with completely riddiculous details such as Republic and Empire having basically the same set of force powers and non-force combat abilities, just with different names and different visual effects.

    I think the core problem is simply that the people leading these companies do not want to make great games. They want to archieve great profits. And Blizzard has the exact same problem.

    We know a ton more about EQ Next than about Titan ... we know it will be a MMO like EQ and EQ2, while Titan ? We have no idea what that game is about at all.

    Um, what ? The really great games, like for example

    - Baldurs Gate 2

    - Neverwinter Nights 2

    - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

    - Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines

    - Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

    all lived up to their promises, if not exceeded them.

    But that was before the age of profit. All these games have been created by gamers for gamers. Bioware has been overtaken by EA, Troika Games went out of business, only Obsidian and Bethesda still remain. Somewhat. Last TES was a sure buy for me until Bethesda decided to force Steamworks on their customers.

    If it bombs like swtor, no need for people to make up nicknames like "tortanic". Blizzard do seem to be tempting fate with the code name of Titan.

    Almost positive it will go the way of Starcraft: Ghost.

    Having two MMORPGs is too big of undertaking, and Blizzard already covers the two major settings us nerds love and enjoy: fantasy, dark fantasy, and science fiction.

    A modern MMORPG would be a huge twist. Imagine a realistic modern MMORPG like the Sims, from Blizzard, hah.

    What would be a real twist if they made a game that had very little or no violence involved. That would truly impress me.

    And yet it will still sell 6 million copies.... before being bashed on sites like this 2 months later and will still be played massively.

    Revealing Wow 2 before Titan is out on the other hand would be a bad idea, some of the Blizzard fans could decide to wait for it instead, and it might hurt Wows expansion sales numbers so they will do it behind locked doors for now.

    Of course, that is only me guessing, but every game Blizz made since 1996 have either been a sequel or had one later besides Wow and Wow is their greatest success. Anyone thinking they will do sequels for all game except the one that made them really rich needs to think some more.

    I agree, Cata & D3 have hurt their respective franchises at various degree's and stung Blizzards overall rep, I honestly think that it will be up to Titan to restore Blizzards bulletproof rep, but its going to have a harder time doing so since I think Blizzard used up a lot of its "free ride" or "leap of faith" selling power up on D3 and its a real shame because Blizzard gave us excellent games in the form of 3WC RTS + DotA, SC & WoW + TBC  =/

    I never understood why gamers would like to see a WoW 2, IMO maybe Blizzard should do a switcheroo by making a "Warcraft 4" & "Universe of Starcraft" I think that would up their fortunes since a lot of Blizzard supporters keep asking for a SC MMO. =)

    Explain how, rather then just saying it "hurt their rep".

    Easy to criticisze negatively, hard to give constructive criticism.

    The fact is you personally don't like, doesn't mean it is bad.

    Do you want the game to be successful? Do you want the game to be great?

    Or you just want to watch Blizzard burn...

    My bet is on social + eSport + storyline SP set in science fiction, possibly SC universe.  Sort of a cross between Halo and SWTOR.

    You just need to use google to find out the current "information" mostly spilled by blizzard ex-workers points to that titan will be a new ip casual mmorpg heavily based upon an inmersing storyline and "charismatic npcs and story characters" and apparently awesome and interesting lore.

     

    So idk where all that city builder imagination came from.

    I am convinced that many would prefer it to fail and Blizzrd to burn. I don't think these people are interested in having a good game, a fun game, an immersive game. They are only interested in their own selfish agenda...which is the destruction of WoW and it's creators...

    Its not "many want to see Blizzard burn" I think its "many want to see the old Blizzard back" you know the gamer friendly company that made very high quality games for gamers and not what we've got now which seems to want to make games built around RMAH's & cash cowing it.

    For example many believe if the old Blizzard North team was still around the below would probably not have happened and it would of been clear blue skys and good sailing for D3, just my thoughts on the matter.

    Titan will be a horrible mess if it isnt anything other then a sandbox/themepark hybrid.  Until Blizzard gets back to innovation and expectations then none of their games or expansion will be any good.  I fully expect Pandaland to bomb even worse then Cata.

    Titan will be freaking amazing and make GW2 look like ET from Atari.

    I was thinking at work last week about Titan and what it may be.

    I don't ever believe there will be a wow killer but at some point there will be a game that has more players than wow and I believe Titan will be that game.

    This is what I think Titan will be.

     

    -Blizzard said it would be a social game. I'm thinking Titan will be directly tied into Facebook.

    -I think Titan will be a online city builder. Player housing,shops real people will run,events,neighborhoods,farming,tailoring,architecture. Deep deep deep customization.

    I think titan will be a mix between second life,farmville and yoville.

    I think titan will either have one huge server supporting millions of people at once or a few servers supporting millions.

    I think titan will have a standard camera view behind the player like wow.

    I think titan will have custom skins using our webcams for our toons faces and our webcams to video chat while playing titan.

    I think titan will use webcams and microphones to give our toon voice in game and animate our toons mouths.

    I think titan will have a military option for pvpers along with open world pvp for players that join the military.

    -Bases will be set up around the world to capture cities and towns.

    I think Titan will have one faction.

    Titan will be very deep in customization and I believe Blizzard will set a new standard in server population capacity.

    I feel bad for you, those expectations are so high...you are hoping for a bit much.  I mean, sounds great...but whoa...lol
