There's no reason DCO can't succeed on a subscription model.

The problem is thinking about success in terms of WoW. You can't do that. You'd only hurt yourself shooting for those numbers (hi, Warhammer). You can have a fraction of WoW's userbase numbers and still be successful with subscriptions. Can you match WoW's scale and polish with a tenth of the userbase (like, say, City of Heroes)? No. But you can still have a successful game.

It has nothing to do with the success of WoW. The game itself is VERY limited by what you can do with the powers they offer.
And for the record, there is NO COMPANY that offers the level of polish that Blizzard does, or even comes close on a Single Player/Multiplayer/MMO scale.
