We've seen countless rivals in the past, battling it out for hype and sales...

 

Who is next?

 

One rivalry I see shaping up is ESO and Archeage, although I'm not sure about the timing.  ESO might be here long before Archeage gets to release.

Vendetta Online, Elite: Dangerous, and Star Citizen will be an interesting trio of twitch-based, spaceflight-sim, MMO-likes (Vendetta is the only true MMORPG of the three, afaik; not knocking E:D or SC)

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I hope it is between TES and AA because both are games I don't feel any urge to support.

A tripple faction free for all between EQ Next vs Wildstar vs Archeage is my pick.

I would have picked AA vs TESO, but it looks like TES fans are having a pretty good fight all by themselves and any hate from another game faction probably wouldn't even get their attention.

If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

I'll choose two Kickstarter funded MMOs. They both have something to prove for the Kickstarter image.

Greed Monger versus Pathfinder Online

One got thrice their funding goal.

The other got barely their goal but more money was requested.

One has a large team an an established story, the other is riding the player-driven story road with a smaller crew.

Too bad their releases aren't closer together, then I could have a true ring-side view of which gets more interest.
