Whoa...you need some better fact checking.On the Instance, Scott speculated (not stated) that Blizzard might have some really big ideas they hadn't put into WoW yet, and that it would be likely they move some or most of them to the next gen MMO they are developing. But in no way did he or Kurt (sic) say that "WoW was done for."You better check your sources before you publish a second hand account.

Whoa yourself.Please note the column was answering a reader question and the not making a statement. Think twice before calling someone on the carpet.

I did notice that, which is why I used phrases like "fact checking" and "second hand account."I think the WoW Inisder folks could have easily verified whether or not anyone on The Instance made statements like the reader claims. Instead they appear to have simply published the reader's interpretation to tens of thousands of people unchecked.

Shawn Coons is correct. Scott Johnson and Kurt Schilling did not say that WoW was done for. As a matter of fact, a few weeks ago they said that they would not be surprised if WoW was still around ten years from now. They merely stated that a significant amount of effort is going into this new game, and that the new game would probably have new/better features that never made it into WoW. The hosts of the instance are very knowledgeable about the game, they just like to speculate and give their opinions as well.
