You allude to 3 years of development (for live players) right after referring to WoW, TBC, and Wrath. The reader could mistakenly think you mean Blizzard has only invested 3 years. Just a little muddy there.But, yeah, not only are we talking the several years WoW (plus expansions) took to develop, they built on the shoulders of 3 former complete games (with 2 expansions). That's no small mountain to climb.

Mythic are not noobs when it comes to MMO development. Their experience with DAOC probably helped them to learn a few things about running an MMO. Plus you seem to think Warhammer is a completely new IP. It has 20+ years of background, lore and active fanbase to support it. If any MMO IP has a chance against WoW it's WAR. The only way it will flop out of the gate is if Mythic fubars the experience.

Decades of history, lore, fanbase in the millions and an awesome universe didn't help Star Wars Galaxies. It was still a shitty game. I do hope WAR turns into a great game, a true competitor to WOW. In the end that could make WOW even better.
