Gold - World of Warcraft

Blizzard Entertainment (thanks Tony) announces that World of Warcraft will be in stores in North America, Australia, and New Zealand on November 23, and their eagerly anticipated MMORPG "is planned for release in Korea, Europe, and other countries throughout Asia shortly following." The release goes on to offer quotes about the project, as well as details on a few different subscription pricing plans. Here's a bit more:
In World of Warcraft, players assume the roles of legendary heroes and interact with thousands of other players online as they explore and adventure across a vast world. Whether journeying together or questing on their own, players will engage in heroic battles, develop friendships, forge alliances, and compete with enemies for power and glory. The game features customizable character classes with thousands of weapons, spells, and abilities. With an innovative, easy-to-use interface, an action-packed combat system, and thousands of quests that build an immersive storyline, World of Warcraft offers a MMORPG that will appeal to both veteran and casual players alike.

Graphically EQ2 is better, visually WoW just owns EQ2. And also another good point brought up is how many people do you know now that haver top end uber systems that play EQ1 right now go on a raid and turn all there graphics down as low as possible to get somewhat smooth framerates while going on raids etc? I know quite a few including my roomate who I watch with his system. Hell even with my athlon 64 3200 1 gig of corsair gaming ram and top end nvidia card that I have to turn my settings down quite a bit just to go into the bazaar in EQ1. While in WoW I have everything on max and have yet needed to turn anything down.

But it's not just visual, every single screen shot I've seen of EQ2 just looks bland and empty, while playing WoW everything just feels alive. Music, Ambiance, etc. And look at the EQ2 shots on the griphon and I don't see very much, while in WoW when I take a griphon or other flying critter, I see people, mobs, structures etc.

and I also agree EQ2 just looks like it's being pumped out, while WoW looks like the first child of parents doing everything to nurture it's child.

You keep your Dark Elf, I'll keep my Night Elf. BTW if ya haven't seen the opening cinematic for WoW prepair yourself for some CGI uber Blizzard goodness.
