There are too many new options out there.

The "community" is what really killed it for me.

 

If they are so successful I'd like to see how many players are in NA and other regions.  You'll never see that.

 

The game is very derp friendly and that is one reason why it's so popular.

With all the mmorpg releases now it's a hard press for Wow to be called the best any longer.
Going by this forum it looks sadly to be a dieing game. Returners are going back and leaving again.

I mean It's still got a hardcore crew as you'd expect with any mmorpg, and still a number picking it up and trying what the fuss has been about all these years. But mostly it's no longer at it's peak. And you have to wonder whether some of it's game design choices are the reason for that.

Because its the default game for so many. I have at least 3 friends that have subscribed for an year even if they do not play occasionally. 

Other than that, add nostalgia, no gamebreaking bugs or stupid lags, old "friends" and a place where you are "somebody" and you don't have to start all over again. Believe it or not, not many people want to start the grind to endgame and "enjoy the journey" all over again in a MMO that seem exactly the same as WoW. It seem all worthless. 

I've always imagined the "WoW killer" to be a game without quest hubs. The WoW killer for me was Gw2 because of the lack of quest hubs. Dynamic events, even though not so dynamic, do make a lot more sense than the good old "go fetch me XXXX and come back". I suppose the "WoW killer" can not be a single game, because of the reasons I said the "WoW killer" is a personal thing. As I said, for me it was Gw2, for others might be FFXIV or even TESO. 

Because of the reasons I listed above I highly doubt a single game can outpace WoW. Not only that. WoW is really polished game even if I'm currently not playing it, I can't call the white black. 

 

It's not really the game that makes it king. If WoW was to be released today, it would probably go F2P rather quickly :)

It is indeed the Wal Mart of MMORPGS  You dont always like shopping there but you usually get a deal and have a bit of fun wandering around.

Just because something is popular (and how many of their 100million are spam type or gold seller accounts?) does not inherentily make it good  - the only people those number really affect is the investors, as a player so long as a game interests me and isnt a ghost town that is what matters - not inflated 1 sided statistics

OP  5/04/14 9:27:52 AM#127

Recently just resubbed. Numbers are still huge for this game. Was surprised to still see noobies in the starting areas. Thought it would be all of us old vets. The new starting areas are awesome! Gnome area is the best!

Love you all for the responses. Glad some still debate!

 

WOW is the only mmo I play once in a while. I have reverted back to single player games. Retro as well.. Warcraft III ect. Ever wonder where the world of warcraft history comes from. Play that game and youll learn. Pretty awesome!

 

Back to Hearthstone now :-). Need to beat up some Zoolocks :-)

World of warcrap is also the only mmo ever made  that has a subliminal message that you hear every time you die within 13 seconds of dying. Subliminal messages can easily manipulate people, especially when they are not aware they are being manipulated, perhaps if wow did not have this, it would not be even half as popular as it is.

If i had a dollar for every time made a McDonald analogy, I would be a billionaire. Literally. The only thing McDonald's and wow have in common is financial success. I am sure if the OP made a thread like this about an old school game like daoc and EQ, people would be cheering. But wow needs to be hated. It's the cool MAINSTREAM thing to do. Bravo!

Never said anything about quality, nor anything about how much money WOW makes(neither does the link). Perhaps reading comprehension is in order.  Thanks though for the input!

@Funyahns is right, Blizzard had a good timing, great marketing and a solid IP to lean on. From a gameplay perspective this game has never been much.

@Xpowederx that is a hilarious statement to make when your title reads: 'Why World of Warcraft is the king of kings, the greatest, the number one of all MMO's'. Which makes anything that follows completely biased as you are obviously a fan of the game. Besides calling people who disagree with your OPINION 'naysayers' isn't working in your favour here..

I loved the Warcraft series and played the first three games 100's of hours. But with the rise of WoW it fell short to me, basically due to the immense generic and dumbed down gameplay. Not being a hater, everyone has his/her own opinions and this is simply mine. I am happy for the people that enjoy the game for what it is, but quite honestly I don't see what the hype is about. I'd prefer a Warcraft 4 strategy game :)

Vanila WoW was a very good game. I remember my first time in Deadmines,Wailing Caverns and Gnomeregan. These were dungeons they were fun and it required people to pay attention and we wiped when we were not careful or played well. It was a  good game. I heard it got dumbed down over the years though.

 

May be a year or more back I went back I noticed they butchered the skill tree and when I went out to Ashenvale and other areas no one was playing, I mean outside levelling outside on the mobs. I think people level via the dungeon finder now.

There are better games out there , although there is no disputing its commercial success.

Also there are a mass of children that play Wow , so I guess it caters to that demographic in particular. I personally always found it just ok.

same here.  WoW is not living up, anymore,  to its early roots as an extremely good game to me.  that doesnt mean it can't again... but they need a bit of a change of direction soon IMHO.  as it stands, dungeon finder, etc cause the overland world to feel empty and lifeless, and their new system of leveling up does not give te theorycrafters among us enough choices to make our characters feel unique.

If DaoC was so fun why don't you just play it?

I wouldn't say that WOW is the best mmo on the market but I will say this, the game has been around for a looooooooong time and it's still doing great. If you are a player who loves to raid then there really isn't anyother game close to the king. I hate Blizzard for being so greedy but I also salute them for making the greatest mmo that will ever set it's foot on this planet.

Today I feel that the graphics are dated and I never enjoyed raiding like most people do so it's not really a game for me but that didn't stop blizzard from excepting my money for over 3 years while I played everyday :)

So my hats of to the creators of this magnificant game.

Too much to post here! Hope you enjoy!

Your a few days late to the party:

 

But with that being said, there is little doubt to the legacy of WoW. It's definitely in the MMORPG hall of fame. After playing the EQNL alpha..... there is no doubt that the "Next Generation MMORPG's" are on their way. I only see decline for WoW in the future and it's days of being #1 western MMORPG are definatley numbered.

 

I can see why Blizzard went back to the drawing board with Titan

 

You're mixing two different things.   You're stating that because WoW's numbers are decreasing that it will not be number one any longer.  That's not true, what's happening is the pie is just getting more slices, but WoW still has the bigger piece and will have for a long time to come.  It's very simple for the reason.  It's because no MMORPG gives the player the playing experience that WoW does.  None of them give you all of the play styles available in World of Warcraft.  All new MMORPGs release games that are "different" but not complete.  The newer MMOs give different things but don't give what's available in WoW first then add to it.

Look at every industry in the history of the world, the market leader has always been the company that gave the customer of their product everything available from all of the competitors products.  The consumer always chooses the product that gives them the most for their money.  It's the same with MMORPGs and for some reason, people want to discuss on forums all kinds of things that don't apply such as things that are "different" like action combat.  Being "different" in all industries of the world has not made any market leaders ever.  The market leader is the one that gives the consumer all that was available and then-some from all of the competitors in the market.
