I remember not too long ago about how AoC was gonna be a WoW killer. Yeah.

AoC sucked in beta. I was shocked at how many people were saying the game was fantastic when the game went live. Made it very tempting to buy it. :/WAR, on the other hand, seems to be pretty good from what I got to see during the preview weekend. Back when EverQuest was still "big" (500,000 big, not WoW big), Dark Age of Camelot was the second place MMO for quite a while.I see WAR fitting in the same place. Will it overthrow WoW? No. It will do far better in the PvP department though, and that alone will set it up with a good subscription base.

As I remember (could be wrong though), the talk of AoC potentially killing WoW was fairly minimal and came mostly from AoC fanboys, many of whom hadn't even played it yet. The WAR speculation is coming from market research, preorder sales, and overall positive reviews of the beta. However, still not many (other than WAR fanboys) are calling it a WoW-killer. The concensus seems to be that WAR's future as the new mmo king is questionable, but that it's likely to be one of the more successful mmo's to come out since WoW.I would bet on at least 2-3 million subscribers within a year or so, assuming they don't hit any major snags with the release. I seriously doubt it's going to top WoW though anytime soon. Then again, who knows? Guess we just have to wait and see =P
