After playing SW:tor I have to say that it doesnt really stand much of a chance at killing wow, which was its dev's hope. Its fun but its on a fresh start and everyone is already quiting it... It is a nice game, and worth a try, but so is LOTRO. and lotro has been out much longer.
THe Hobbit movies come out next year. So if they are a success people will be in the perfect mood for this game.
the devs continue to make the game grow, and if they advertise it right, and push the game in lots of directions, it could actually be up there.
Its classed as a F2P game, but that doesnt mean it isnt making a hek load of money.
My opinion is just that whilst SW:tor will be very succesful, the community and devs will make is so... but i now beleive that after playing it this game has just as good chance (infact better) to keep its place high among players.
What direction do you think this game is heading? what other MMO do you play?
