AC topped the dung heap of MMO's. Large world fun to run around in. Very limited instances, no stacked instances of zones. Monthly events. No classes. Jump was a skill that paid off One full PvP server. $10 a month sub fee. No weird level based damage limit (attacking something too high level being impossible) Too bad they didn't make a true sequel to it.
AC2 was a stinker.
Why don't any new AAA MMO titles try any of these? From what I've read SWOTROWRS is just a WoW ripoff.
