Ruh roh ... incoming nerdrage concerning SWTOR. I've never really understood how some (and I do mean some, not all) WoW players and SWTOR players can never get along. Can't their be two big MMOs out at the same time and both be financially successful?

"Can't their be two big MMOs out at the same time and both be financially successful?"In a perfect world...yes. In the real world...No, Absolutely Not, and negative!WoW fanboys will always have it out for anyone out there trying to compete with WoW and any other MMO fanboys will want nothing but WoW's destruction. Just the way it is. Blizzard has been winning the battle for years though. Warhammer, Aion, Final Fantasy, AOC, and yes...even Rift have all fallen to Wow when everyone was going on and on about them being the 'WoW Killer'. However, SW:TOR is the ONLY one that may actually do it AND has the deep pockets to withstand the first turbulent six months to a year that every new MMO has to go through until it gets it's footing. Would be nice if everyone could play nice, but I don't see that happening.

@ DBriggs304: WoW killer is such a horrible buzz word. It should honestly just be struck from the vocab of the MMO community. Also saying that games are failures or have fallen just because they didn't live up to the horrible buzz word of "WoW killer" is equally as bad and stupid. If a game is running and making a profit for their respective companies then that is a success. There are reasons why people make up a top 10 MMO list after all and that is because multiple MMOs can and do run simultaneously while being financially successful it just happens to be that WoW is at the top of the list, it doesn't mean it's the only successful MMO though.
