Actually none of the posts are in any way critical of LoTRO Online, which I should say that I have played and enjoyed, but are actually amused with the concept they're using. You can't really completely say that we're calling for Wow to "copy" LotRO when there are so many elements all MMOs are picking up from games past. Player housing first originated with Ultima Online I think, though I'm not certain about that - in any case you find any old school Ultima folks and they can talk to you about origins. (I think that may be the case for US online games, possible that may not be the case if we factor other countries into the mix.) Anyhow, the point is what they do with the concept, how they use it creatively.And exactly what Mullinator said - I just don't have time to play ALL MMOs for long amounts of time. Right now I'm checking out Conan, but only a few hours here and there, and that'll be it when the month runs out. What's really funny in Conan is the amount of people who refuse to say that the game used ANYTHING that could be in any way similar to Wow.
