Billions? The survey is of gamers not the general population. 180 million players with a sample size of 500. Most polls don't take a gigantic sample they break it down my demographics and for a survey like this where it boils down to "do you " or "don't you" you can still get a respectable sample with that low of a number.

Sample size of 500 is plenty large enough if the demographics are chosen properly. If you just pick 500 people at random walking down the street, the results are usually off but if you choose 500 people broken down by age, sex, income level, whatever you can get a pretty decent sampling reflective of the general gaming population for a particular game.

eh they are just waiting for the "next mmo that will be the chosen one" that will fulfill all their hopes and desires. GW2 is that game and then after that launches they will be QQing again.

Why would anybody try and convince you otherwise?

What other mmo lets you actually change the world?

Yeah I think that is why Wow is popular, plenty of people raiding and having no idea what the story is but they get fat lewtz

Majority of mmos now a days are co-op RPGs. Wow killed the group quests when leveling a while ago, most of other mmos killed group content and restricted it to the group instances. At least in TOR you had more group content when leveling with heroics but people tend to either skip them or its hard to form a group.
Mar 15th 2012 10:34PM I wish game developers would realize that not every popular franchise needs to be an mmo.....They make great single player games. Just make an RPG with coop as an option for the campaign and just release expansions every so often. Making an mmo usually means you end up adding water down content to provide the filler required to keep people grinding away and paying.
Mar 15th 2012 9:59AM I remember all the "GW1 will be the end of wow because it has no sub" from the official forums years ago.
Now considering I quit playing a few months ago I might actually think GW2 might be the new thing because people might be tired of paying a sub for once a year content patches.

I think everybody just plays vultures circling looking for a fail opportunity to swoop in.
