WoW never required skill and the talent trees were never capable of doing 'unique' and still be viable at end game.

As to the ability of MMOs to survive, it boils down to how well they do the free to play model at this point.

Say what you like about World of Warcraft, I'm sure if you shout extra loud then Blizzard might hear you enough to turn up the sound on their solid gold stereo as they bathe in 50 notes.

WoW is successful, whether you think it is or not, and it dominates the MMORPG scene. Pretty much all other MMORPGs die within a very short span.

Added to the general trend is the footage of Eternal Crusade. It's Space Marine multiplayer with a big landscape, right down to the same silly running animation. Why would you play this instead of Space Marine?

Well... I can play as various Chaos Legions. That's enough for me to give it a shot

I still play WoW, it is a good time waster. As to how well a MMO does, there is many of them that have been around for quite some time now using the F2P model. Are they as populated as WoW was? Nope, but WoW is not the bastion of invincible power it was before either. It has lost players to the point that it is merging servers now.

Even the giants die eventually. I had plenty of fun with WoW. Took Blizzard a while to start implementing suggestions from the fans, but the game steadily improved over time. I regret all the time I wasted playing it, but those were fun days.

Any MMO I try nowadays, I usually don't play past the free month. There are only so many ways to make grinding feel like a unique experience from game to game.

Maybe this game will have something special that makes it worthwhile. I WANT it to play just like Space Marine, but with more options and better support.

I agree ... I loved Space Marine for the multiplayer, only completed the campaign to get some unlocks. Wish that they had more boards and better way of matching though. This could be a SM clone and if they give it support, I will buy it.

I hate when they close down projects only to be boughten out under new management and given shitty ass names. "Dark Millenium," was a great name, not this "Eternal Crusade" garbage. Anyway still looks cool, cannot wait for the release.

I'm looking forward to seeing gameplay of them using orcs or even elder, looks cool what they showed us but tbh we all seen it before in space marine, they need to show something new and exciting and 2 new playable races would be in my opinion

I was underwhelmed by the footage and concept. I would like to get back into an MMORPG at some point, but it would have to have a subscription to remove pay to win aspects, SOE or EA couldn't be involved, and the game would actually have to be something new playstyle-wise.
