The original Star Wars Galaxies, before they went and for all intents and purposes 'WOW-ified' it and lost around 75% of subscribers if not more

WAR for gods sake... But Dark Millenium will rape everything...
But the problem is that no one is going to play an MMO after Halo: Reach is released...

hahahahahaha....

That's exactly what they said about WAR, and that's not even dented WOW's popularity- nothing will ever beat WOW, they might be popular in thier own right but a WOW killer they won't be.

Champions Online for me- I love being a Super Hero, I can only hope they add a Villain expansion like they did with City of Heroes/Villains.

Completely agree with the Baron here. Nothing is going to knock WOW off its pedestal. Age of Conan, Lord of the Rings, WAR, all were apparently going to 'give WOW a run for its money on the top spot' not one of them even came close to catching WOW, even on their opening months.

And the sooner everyone wakes up and realises this when they're releasing MMOs, the better. So much marketing goes into pushing games for a big launch (which usually just ends up with huge log in queues and laggy servers) only for everyone to discover that there's actually no content because the publishers wanted to push out their "WoW beater" as early as they can and start getting subs in. The result - about 10% of the people who buy the box end up taking out a subscription.

I can't see any MMO overtaking WoW - a good, long running MMO is very sticky for subscribers to try to leave. After people have been there for a year or so, it starts getting hard to leave not because of the content, but because of the social side of the game - you want to keep playing with the folks you know. WoW's had too long for people to build up those groups now for there to be any mass exodus to another game (short of them making any SOE style blunders, anyway). Blizzard have a bit of a luxury in the market now - they've never been great innovators (most of what was in WoW in launch had already been featured in other games before it), but now they've got such a long lead, they can see what features are in new/ongoing games and pick and choose the bits they want to add to WoW to keep them on top. All the while, millions of folks pay their $7.99 a month (or what ever it is) subs so they can afford to do it.

I honestly think there are other games with better content, better ideas, and that give you more new content regularly for your money - but WoW's been so far in the lead for so long now, I don't think anyone's ever going to catch up.

I think EVE is less an MMO and more The Matrix, in all reality. Do some research on what happens in and around that game and you start to realize most people who play it took the red pill a long time ago.
