Mythic on WoW's WAR "Imitation"

There's a Warhamnmer Online: Age of Reckoning interview on GamesIndustry.biz where Mark Jacobs discusses Mythic's recently released MMORPG. An interesting bit that's highlighted in a separate post is Mark's contention that PvP elements in the upcoming World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King expansion are inspired by the release of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning: "It wasn't like all of a sudden the idea of open world PVP or leveling through PVP came into their heads and went 'nobody's ever done this before'. I don't think it was accidental that they're talking about doing it when Warhammer comes out. Four years and suddenly, miraculously, at the same time Warhammer comes out that's when they start talking about these things... I think it was Jeff Kaplan who said they like to look at other games and learn from them - well, I'm flattered."
