Internet Pirates are like the modern day Robin Hood. They take from the rich, and give to the poor.

 Wait for WoW. The graphics actually look like fantasy. If you check out eq2's graphics you'll notice they look like gumby and is too realistic (djin pointed that one out).

The graphics for WoW are exactly why I would advise people that either do not like the Warcraft series or have never played it to stay away from it. It looks too campy and cartoonish to me (Im not a warcraft player). As for other features I have not looked into WoW yet to see what it offers, but when I see people talking about EQII and Horizons they talk about what they will offer. I have not heard anyone talk about how great the housing system or crafting system will be in WoW. Maybe I have not looked in the right place for that, but I would think people would be talking about that stuff here if it were to be so much better than either Horizons or EQII. Elighten me if I just missed the boat on that.

 For WoW, here's the details...

 Transportation- You can fly gryphons, sail ships,ride horses and many more creatures. They are even talking about being able to use a flying ship.

 Player Housing- They have looked into the player housing but they will not have a confirmed result until near the end of completing the game.

The World- From the very detailed cities to the forests, swamps, and mountains, the world looks very interesting.

Combat- It's very fast paced with lots of great spell effects.

Questing- They say there is short quests and the epic life long quests to choose from.

That's some info on World of Warcraft that i found.

Thats better. Gives me an idea of what we are looking at. I have spent some time over the past few hours looking at various WoW sites, and still come to the same conclusions.

The graphics remind me of new age comic books.

The races, save for Undead, are typical.

and it seems to be set up to cater only to the Warcraft player. Which if that is the case it still will be very successful, as there are MANY Warcraft players out there. I feel that there is not much there that will draw the new players in. I think that Horizons has that with the unique races (not just Dragons), its crafting and consignment system, kick ass housing system, and nearly classless skill system.

The only thing I found intriguing was the different mounts that you spoke of. I would hope that they consider housing, as its toughest competition has that going for it.

 Arenas - There will be arenas for fighting. You can fight player against player, player against monster(dragons ect.), several players against monster. Team battle which is players against players. And you can buy a ticket and spectate in the crowd to bet on who will win. And did i mention.... Guild battles?

Player Weddings?- You heard me. There might be player weddings in the cathedrial and you can rent the room and buy/send out invitations.

Boat travelling- No the boat will not just take you to the destination in a snap. You actually see yourself progressing to the destination. There will be quests along the way like attacking pirate ships, even gambling.

Combat- When you attack a person, blood will actually spill off the player.

Quests- The talk from E3 is that the quest systems are very nice and solid. It includes talkative NPC's. And they have tons of dungeons that no mmorpg to date can beat.

Look- Most people call it cartoony, but the people to experience it at E3 call it "art". Your characters Camera movement is flexible, and smooth.

Well that's enough research for one day, i might add more later depending on what everyone thought of it.
