    Another MMORPG if one came out?

    WoW had it's share of success in the clan, and in terms of player participation it grew the group as a whole, and also was the focal point for some downsizing as well.

    WoW has clearly worn out its welcome, but others will come along in time.. So I'm curious as to whether we would try it all again with something new?

    What if that something new was a new MMO from blizzard?

    We've had other attempts at MMORPGs but none have had the overall success of WoW. Wondering if the genre itself has played itself out or is it just the game/developer..

    This is also my shameless attempt to try a poll for the first time.. :p

    I would. I enjoyed the run of WoW and what it offered the CDL. I would prefer it be a different theme next time, as the medieval theme is tired with me at least. If it were a post-apocalyptic world, etc, I might find myself playing.

    Likewise I would try it out again. Our early runs and even our late run of WoW were a success.. MMO's offer a unique environment for CDL where it thrives.

    I'm kind of burnt out on the whole medieval thing as well so I would prefer something different. I've really had my eye on APB for some time it looks very unique but most don't seem interested in it.

    I will be purchasing Star Wars: The Old Republic (TOR). And while I would love to play with you guys, I know that a good number of people here would shy away from the more dark side of the Star Wars Universe. If we were to form an official division, I would not want what happened to WoW happen with TOR. And that was when the decision was made to split our team into the Horde side and the Alliance side (on two different servers). To me, the camels back was broken the minute we made that decision. And while we did manage to find a few Dragonwolves on both servers, for the most part, the number of CDLers that were playing WoW no longer come here for a visit or are active here anymore.

    I loved WOW and sometimes think of going back to it....I would be down for anything similiar.

    Thats prob years out while they milk the heck out of WoW original.

    I thought the idea was Blizzard was doing another MMO, but with a different, new IP.. At least that's what sites like Massively have been saying..

    Probably be the same formula, but it shouldn't be WoW.. Either SC or Diablo would be decent IPs to mine as well, but if the rumours are right it will be something new..

    Thing is even if WoW lost 80% of it's subscriber base overnight it would still be the most popular MMO out there.. So they'll be able to milk WoW for some time, while turning their server farms over to support their next attempt..

    I brought up WoW more to gauge whether it was "WoW the game", or Blizzard that people had soured on.. :)

    Yea and it is more common now than ever, game companies just try and pump out games and focus on quanity over quality hoping to find the next cash cow.

    As soon as they realize the WoW model cannot be repeated and it will take an original game with some solid testing time and development time the better off we will be.

    From what I have seen, games like the new Star Wars game, Jumpgate, and APB have been spending more solid time than I have seen anyone spend recently. (Star Trek online for example, Champions Online.. all pushed to release) hopefully we will get something good out of one of those.

    I've heard it said that Fallen Earth (post-apoc) is supposed to be quite good, but I haven't read much about it..

    APB sounded ok, but some of the dev videos I've seen have made it seem a bit wishy washy.. I'm just not sure what it's going to be about or how good it'll be..

    The Old Republic does have my interest though, as does jumpgate, hopefully the delays of the latter don't spell doom for the game..

    Yea Jumpgate has been pretty MIA.

    APB is going to be a crazy customizable game where you are a cop or a robber. Customized cloths, decals etc. Clanmates all wearing the same outfit. It looks pretty ground breaking in that sense at least.

    Search google for "all points bulletin pax east hands on" as there have been alot of reviews of the recent build of the game just a few weeks ago. Worth reading a bit. :D Also some new vids. (http://www.massively.com/2010/03/30/pax-east-2010-hands-on-with-apb/)

    I also have some interest in the star wars game and wouldnt be opposed to being on the dark side for a change, I always enjoyed their badassery over the jedi. :p

    Fixed my post, bad link to the wrong place. :p
  13. I agree with everyone else, while i am still willing to play an MMORPG i do not want to play another WOW or a look alike.

    I would be up for more MMO play with CDL. I'm still active in WoW and enjoying it. ABP does look interesting as well as Fallen Earth. I have always loved the post-apocalyptic setting myself.

    I do miss me some CDL.

    The advantage that the Star Wars IP has over most of the others is that they've already tried it (Star Wars Galaxies) and failed once they decided to get all cutsie and give everyone the ability to become a Jedi/Sith. If you try to appease everyone, not everyone will be happy. You can fix something once you see how it broke in the first place.

    Aye, I like what I've seen from them so far also.

    Still playing WoW and enjoying it, I am.

    Blizzard, has made some nice enhancements to the game that has made getting in Dungeons and Raid easy.

    As I mentioned in a past post, I am looking forward to the new content with the release on Cataclysm.

    As does Warwolf, Miss -CDL-, I do.
  18. Asp

    And clearly, with Debic's yoda impressions he'll be looking forward to the Star Wars MMO as well :p

    I'll probably drop in for cataclysm as well for a goof to see what they do with it.. Unless something else catches me. :)
