    Excuse me while I chortle at such an inane attempt to achieve persistence.  They don't even understand what the word means in the genre.  But in your defense, MMORPG already covers games that really fall far short of what persistence really means.

    I read this too and a couple of thoughts came to mind;

    They talk about battles 'once per day'?  I wonder how they will schedule that? 

    It will either lock out the low pop time zones...

    OR

    people will rapidly become annoyed by the '3am Ninja attacks'

     

    Other games have tried this mechanic and it has caused all sorts of problems.

    Nothing says irony like spelling ideot wrong.

    there will be a world map, and you can only attack a territory in the evening that territory is set in. so for a US territory, US evening, russian territory, russina evening. basically clans will end up fighting over territories in their own time zone, but if you want to attack at noon in europe from the US nothing is stopping you.

    Basic definition is what it is:  Massively Multiplayer.  There are over a thousand players connected at one time to ONE server.

    Doh where is the persistence?  Right there is none, hence not a MMO period!  They did say they have some changes coming down the road that might change that, but at the moment it just is not a MMO.

    Yes there is. I think you have your definitions confused.

    Depsite mmorpg.com editors saying they would remove it in a 'few days' ...its over 9 months on & still

    no sign of being declassified as an MMO? 

     

    *Edit*

    Before i get trolled, I am playing WoT & enjoying it, depesite it's frustrations,

    but its no more of an mmo than CoD or BF2

    The Deathstar destroyed planets...Lucas Arts destroyed Galaxies
