And after seeing some Everquest Next videos? Yeeeah, good luck ESO.

Yeah for better or worse EQN is trying something new. That's what we need more of. If EQN flops, it'll still be an innovator that inspired some other studios to get outside their comfort zone and try something new. (Most likely Blizzard will lift many of their ideas for Titan). If ESO flops, it'll be just another WoW clone down the drain like so many before it, having inspired no one.

It's no coincidence that Blizzard decided to rework their new MMO recently, just like when SOE reworked EQ3 into EQNext. People are starting to catch on that you can't just keep making the same fucking game with a new coat of paint.

I wonder if we're not seeing the beginning of another cycle. SOE makes EQ Next, Blizzard comes along a couple years later and puts their own spin on the idea, and then shitty clones en masse follow that for several years.
