While proclamations that "WOW IS DEAD" are premature, the writing has been on the wall since Ghostcrawler was put in charge. He has no clue how to run things, as painfully shown by the last two expansions. I agree that the smartest move Blizzard could make would be to ditch him.(Really, Cataclysm's ONLY saving graces were gnome priests and the fact that heroic and raid content wasn't a total joke like Wrath.)Like it or not, WoW is about to get hit by a 1-2 punch from TOR and GW2. (And even Final Fantasy XIV 2.0 looks far more promising than Mists of Pandaria, to be brutally honest.) It would not surprise me in the least to see WoW's population halved by this time next year.I'm honestly not that impressed with TOR, but it is at the very least more interesting than the crap Ghostcrawler has been churning out since Wrath came out. I have no personal plans to sub to TOR, but I know many current and former WoW players who are planning on making the switch. This is likely not going to be another AoC/WAR this time. It looks like TOR is going to be REAL competition.I used to think that WoW was rock solid, with no chance of it being dethroned by anyone but Blizzard themselves. I was wrong, because I didn't anticipate Ghostcrawler. He managed to take the greatest MMO ever released and turn it into something that isn't even worthy of being called "World of Warcraft" anymore.This post is gonna go black in five seconds, but it has to be said. WoW is likely to soon be eclipsed by other games.
