    I agree that SWTOR won't be a WoW killer but I think it will be for completely different reasons which I thought she was going to point out. That is the difference in audiences, I know plenty of people who are kinda tired of fantasy mmos even though they are used to them and comfortable with the setting. I for one will be trying SWTOR just because I personally grew tired of WoW and I was a pretty hardcore player. After watching some of the SWTOR videos I think the game is taking a similar approach to WoW in that the leveling aspect is mainly solo with a few group dungeons (duos and full groups) while the higher content is raiding and small groups.

    They released a video of the top level raiding dungeon where we find the fate of Revan and I am assuming the last boss is everyones favorite assassin droid. They just added more single player content in terms of story but I have yet to see a video of someone soloing one of their dungeons, if so point it out to me cause that means there's one I haven't watched a million times. Calling Star Wars super nerdy though, isn't that like the pot calling the kettle black? there wasn't a single super non-nerdy thing said in this interview, I think I actually started developing acne while listening lol. I think it is cool though that blizzard revamped the whole system and I always said they were really good at taking other ideas and incorporating them.

    Star Wars is super nerdy? I don't know, judging from some people comments, they seems to think WoW is more nerdy than Star Wars. Can't we nerds whether they are WoW or SW fans get along? LOL.

    Anyway, I'll be getting into WoW after years on hiatus then afterwards I'll be playing The Old Republic whenever it's out, unless it's as bad as APB. While, I don't think it will get as many players as WoW, it will definitely take away some of its fan base. Mainly because Bioware is making it and they make great games and those who wants to try a different setting from knights and orcs into something more sci-fi, The Old Republic will appeal to them.

    Leah is right about Guild Wars 2 and it could be a major force in the MMO market. Mainly because GW2 is subscription-free and level cap is raise to 80. Now that will draw a lot of players.

    From what I have seen of SWTOR and what I have seen from previous Bioware games... it does look to solo play. I am betting there will be a lack of mandatory group content. SWTOR seems like it will be even easier than WOW and be completely solo play. If I wanted to play a solo game... I could always play Dragon Age or Mass Effect 2. I thought Mass Effect and Dragon Age Origins were too easy. Yes, I played it on the hardest level... insanity and nightmare. Bioware games are not known for their intense difficulty. In SWTOR, you can go afk and mine and afk harvest and afk quest.... yeah... woot. AFK to max level and best gear Bioware?

    It might be good, but I will agree... it probably wont be a "WOW KILLER." I personally believe a WOW killer will be a game that is DIFFERENT than WoW. Not just WOW in space with lightsabers. Do not get me wrong, the first 6 months of SWTOR will be good... with plenty of people. However, after 6+ months... will there be enough content to keep a person playing the same character? Then there is the death mechanics. It looks simply a spawn timer... does not look like it matters if you live or die. Can we fail quests in SWTOR (permanently fail) ?

    Remember, I could be wrong... I am currently not in Alpha or Beta or SWTOR - and I have not played it at all.... so... I might be off.

    did she just shrug off The Old Republic like everyone isn't going to be playing the crap out of it.?

    Where can WoW go from here? Probably the only thing that would bring me back... an overhaul of the PvP system. Perhaps castle or area sieges. More world PvP objective areas. PvP raids with PvE. The biggest problem I had with WoW was it had too few world PvP options and it seemed to be more EZMODE. I would love to be able to fail quests and not be able to re-pick them (and I am not talking about a single person doing a group quest).

    I am a big believer that battlegrounds killed PvP for me in WoW. WoW should have two types of PvP gear... world versus battleground pvp gear, IMHO.
