Why Alganon Resembles WoW

Alganon Interview with David Allen on The MMO Gamer talks with David Allen, co-founder and President of Quest Online, about Alganon, their debut MMORPG. They cover a wide variety of topics and conclude by asking about the similarities many have noted between this game and World of Warcraft. Here's part of the lengthy reply:

Our biggest fans are the players who take the time to view Alganon as its own product, but you have to play the game to do that. Most of the naysayers never played the game; they base their negative comments on assumptions they’ve made from playing other games, or reading forums, or looking at screenshots. They compare these surface elements and make a list of things they find similar. Even when they do enter the game, they do so with the goal of finding similarities. They don’t bother to ask the most important question of all, “is it fun?”
