I don't think it will be one competitor that will overtake WoW unless some other manufacturer comes out with a game that is not only entertaining but revolutionizes the genre much in the same was as Warcraft did for RTS.IMO WoW's losses will be split among their competitors - some will switch to Star Wars (as I would do if I hadn't already invested time and myself into WoW), some to AION (indeed my guild is losing at least three members to AION in protest over the Battle.net drama), and of course there are others out there as well. In the end WoW will still be on top but parity will be closer between the competitors and WoW.Of course there is also the possibility that the new games will bring new people into the genre of MMOs and they will in turn leave those new games for WoW. After all it happened to me. I started with World of Kung Fu, a pseudo-free MMO and move from it to WoW
