They aim to make a niche game, but I bet they get more subscribers than most f2p games got players :)

It's number two in popularity on mmorpg.com

gg "niche game" :)

    You do realize this site is home to fans of niche titles right?

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Honestly pretty much every one of these except ESO and GW2 is a niche product for a certain type of gamer, whether its ARPG fast combat, WoW clones, or Single player RPGS in MMO clothing, most of those can safely be considered to have their own "niche".

    Currently Playing: ESO and FFXIV
    Have played: You name it

    uhm we are talking mmorpg market right?

    they are aiming to make a niche game in the mmorpg market.

    These games are mainstream in the mmorpg market.

    i don't think it's possible to "aim to make a niche game".  you make a game and it either becomes mainstream,  fails,  or gets a small group of people that play it and keep it alive.  it's not up to developers to make it "niche" or not.  it's up to gamers.

    You've got a point there, but I can't say I entirely agree...I think by "aiming" to a niche market just simply means that its aimed at I suppose what could be described as a specific player within the MMO industry....i mean, considering most MMO's have some form of PVE and CU won't i suppose Jacobs is justified in saying hes aiming for a niche market just in that regard, then add in the focus on RVR compared to more traiditonal pvp.....

    But yeah, i suppose if enough people play it then it could bring this type of game out of niche and into mainstream?
