I don't know. I think the new Star Wars has a good shot of knocking wow back a bit, numbers wise. The reason I say this, is because I've been playing wow for a lot of years. The other mmo's that have come out have had some mention in trade and lfg, usually right around the time of their release. On the other had, as soon of bio-ware officially announced ToR I've seen stuff about it in trade and guild chat on a fairly regular basis. There seems to be some true buzz with this game that wasn't quite that for other mmo's. To be honest, I haven't seen any people talking about Aion in trade. I've seen more about guild wars and ddo than aion. I'm not sure what this means as far as ToR's success, but there does seem to be quite a lot of WoW players interested in it.

Well, there's a few reasons for the big buzz. First, it's Star Wars. The property is everywhere, and is easily one of the most marketed properties in the world. Second, the developer is Bioware, which has a long, long history of making excellent CRPGs with lots of depth and character, and enough story to make SEVERAL novels. Third, it's the first MMO that Bioware has attempted, and they are coming at the game from a different angle. The whole thing is quite exciting to multiple crowds, from the Star Wars crowd to the CRPG crowd, to the MMO crowd that is hearing about all the new things Bioware is trying.It's exciting. People will talk.
