imo games that aren't even out yet shouldn't get rated. so your top 2 are flawed imho.

Ah very true. I guess I just found it odd EA would be distributing/publishing two major MMOs concurrently.
Apparently they (EA) want a bit of both sides of the coin as I imagine there won't be much similarity between TSW and TOR.



Plus his avatar is a bunny with a crown on its head. Whatever arguments you might have had are invalid. The only way they could be more invalid would be if his avatar had a pancake on its head instead of a crown.

I don't know if I would have rated TSW as high as #4. Not because of Funcom or anything like that, but because they are targeting role players first. A lot of the game seems like it'll attract a fairly specific kind of person, but not your general gamers or just regular popular. Which is fine, really...probably good actually. It just limits the audience and potential size of the game. If games like AoC or Aion have a really good year (they're getting old enough to actually be a good experience) it could push TSW down the list a bit.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

Vanguard is not on list so whose fault is that? it is very easy to blame players though. In my opinion Vanguard is a real disgrace and devs should take a lesson on how to not launch a MMO. Trion has set new standards on launch quality and releasing new content updates. But why are we even arguing? state of Vanguard speaks for itself.

I almost agreed with one of your top X lists for the first time, but i think that The Secret World is ranked way too high.

Though i doubt that they'll manage to top AOC in terms of failure (more features printed on the box than actually being ingame is hard to top anyway), Failcom will find many ways to fail again.

 

*Edit: where Rift will wobble after SWTOR and GW2 hit the scene remains to be seen. But with estimated 150-200k subs mid 2012 it won't rank above EvE for shure.

I approve of this list. However with Rift, I think it should go below The Secret World, because in-game I've been in so many conversations with people saying how they can't wait for one of the big 3 (GW2, SW:TOR, TSW).


Also regarding SW:TOR and GW2. The reason I agree with their positions on the list is because there is no doubt that SW:TOR will be hugely popular in the US and Europe. It will likely do better than GW2 in at least one of those continents. However GW2 will have something SW:TOR won't have... an Asian market, alongside the US and Europe. I say this because GW2 is aiming to be a highly competitive, highly skill-based, e-sport and it is no secret that a lot of Western games that have that sort of format appeal to the Asian market (Starcraft, Diablo & Dota-styled games).


So if NCSoft heavily markets GW2 to the east (focusing on the PvP) and NCSoft West markets it well over here, then we could get a highly successful game that will at least trump SW:TOR.

That is a big 'IF' that is why i said that in terms of sheer popularity WOW will always be number one.

Everything has an expiry date.  I'm skeptical that WoW's will be next year, but it is on the decline.  If the upcoming big titles perform as they look like they will, WoW will still be number one, but no longer the dominating force that it is.  An it looks like there are other developers out there who are showing their own unique visions for a change, so they will also bring pressure to bear.

Nothing lasts forever.

Nothing lasts forever but we are talking about 2012 ;) and i really doubt WOW's popularity will be on decilne any soon.

Will always? If people that like this genre believe this MMOs are doomed! There is no way this genre is going to survive if the only game that ever reaches the point where people that do not play MMOs know it is WoW. I actually feel sorry for this genre if its fans believe in 2020 WoW will be the most recognized game. To put that in prospective I know a lot of people that do not play games and they can name more than one single player game (it should be the same with MMOs if this genre is healthy), so if people in 2020 cannot name any other MMO than WoW good luck on this genre surviving.  


 


Other than that good list look forward to seeing how close it is at the end of 2012.

WTF?  You think it's just coinicidental that there's an explosion of democracy in the Middle East that is giving the people of those countries time to prepare for GW2 launch?

I have no idea what WOW's popularity in future got anything to do with survival of MMO genre. Talk about over reaction. WOW can close down its servers tomorrow and still it will be remembered and stay popular for gamers because like it or not it belongs to golden era of MMOS when MMORPG went main stream and wasn't limited to basement nerds.

You talk as if WOW is the worst game and by remembering it fanbase somehow should feel ashamed.

WOW is like Elvis of MMORPG. Dead or alive it will always be popular. But i agree with above poster...way to over react.

Are you really comparing WoW to Elvis a guy that has been dead since 1977 and still racks in millions of dollars each year? Wow has just barley been around for 7 years and already the fans are linking it to Elvis, I really feel sorry for the genre!
 
And for your record that was not an overreaction I was just pointing out how stupid it sounds to me to say WoW will be popular forever when it is freaking 7 years old. Unless you people have a way to travel into the future you do not know that, it could be a game rarely mentioned like Battletoads for all we know.

There we go again.Stop feeling sorry for genre because it will just do fine. And yes i used Elvis a s an example because in MMO genre nothing has been bigger and popular. So i would be surprised if WOW is still not talked about after 20 years.

Its a very reasonable list and i can accept it without much of a problem


 


Personally i won't playing TSW because it's done by Failcom (sure, i has some intriging stuff and ideas but so had AoC) and me and my HC Raiding members got tired of getting banned almost everyday for either pooling gold to build our player city as a FIRST (be it World or Server) or banned for selling (either for absurdly high prices or volumes) player crafter stuff that only we could make in the server due our city crafting shops... and trust me, getting ppl banned almost every day while taking 1+ week to un-ban them makes alot of resentment and a big no-no on trust at the Failcom Support Department.


 


Personally i hope they have improved, cuz we sure don't need no more garbage launches, the last couple of years have already filled that quota nicelly :p
