You guys need to get past this fear of using WoW in any context. The fact is, it's the biggest player on the field, and to turn away and act like it's not is just denial and foolishness.
You think there's ANY MMO developers or executives or investors that can have a meeting without mentioning WoW?
You think any new MMO project being discussed anywhere in the industry can go full length without someone mentioning WoW?
You business-minded people who are so enthralled with the financial side, forgetting that you're gamers FIRST should know this more than anyone. It's the way it is. WoW is the biggest, most successful MMO in history, and it's still going, and it's still dominating, and it's still got more subs, etc etc etc etc.... until that changes, you should not get offended whenever someone compares features to WoW, and stop getting offended when someone says "wow-clone" and stop gasping when someone says "it does just like WoW did" .
Can you talk about FPS without mentioning Call of Duty? or Halo? (bring on the exceptionists... *sigh*) no, you can't.
Can you talk about operating systems without mentioning Windows? Don't even try to say you can....
now, does anyone agree?
This is not a troll, flame, or anything else worth banning me over. It is simply my pure opinion, and I have a right to share it.
