Game is still new and fresh. There is a 0% chance this game will have the longevity of WoW

Not really a big achievement m8, BDO (a fresh, new game) managed to get a better score than WoW's legit WORST expansion. Even blizz admitted it sucks and ceased to work on it and moved all their cash to make a new one.
And that's all if we IGNORE the fact that WoW still has much more SUBSCRIBERS where BDO is B2P and still low numbers :P
Nice try tho, keep hoping

Dropped to 6mil in WoD. Like I said, their worst expansion yet.

It's such an unfair comparison really. WoW was revolutionary. The only thing remotely revolutionary about BDO is the character creator. The game play is mediocre. idk if you can even call afk fishing "game play"

Blizzard -----ing suck, period. Their recent fiasco with nostalrius just shows how they don't give a shit. ----- them.

However, nothing I think will ever "beat" WoWs previous success.... only because wow had a whole storyline and series of games behind it.

This game however will do well in it's own way.

I think most people play wow these days simply because of the sunk cost fallacy.

Seems like you don't comprehend how large 6 mil  is. It's still 30x more than BDO.

B..But it's WoW? I wonder how many people will switch back when Legion will hit. And remind you that WoW is around since 2004. This game is just a few months old(for NA/EU).

Until Legion, then I will go enjoy the Demon Hunter swarm for a few months then happily trot back to BDO to see and play the awesome content I missed.

WoW was not revolutionary.  When it launched it didn't invent anything that other MMO's didn't already have.  With that said, WoW was great a copying features from other games, they took good features & ideas from other games and combined them all into one game.  They often enhanced and upgraded those features and made them work well for their playerbase.  Blizzard deserves credit for what they created, but they were not revolutionary.  Think WoW like Microsoft, rarely invent anything, but took ideas & inventions from others and made them slightly better for their users.  Both software have tons of users because of accessibility, affordability, and user friendliness.

Anyways I figured this thread was a troll/bait thread.  But no, BDO won't touch WoW in terms of subscriber count, fanbase count, and Blizzard is literally printing money in Irvine.  They make most any other gaming companies jealous, it's really no surprise why so many games tried to model after WoW.  BDO is more of a niche game that caters to a crowd that have been looking for a game like this.  There really aren't many games like BDO, it explains the popularity.  Going by user votes, BDO is also the most popular game on mmorpg.com for games released.  It doesn't really mean much, but it should mean something to the publisher/developers of this game.

Everquest, Asheron's call, DAoC. It was business as usual. Then WoW came along and things changed. It could have been Everquest, but it wasn't successful enough.

WoW copied the same game design as EQ1 but added the ability to level via quests and made everything accessible until end game. That's about it. Later on with further expansion packs when they started doing phasing, etc? Maybe. But not at launch.

well... bdo is still first O.o

yep. that is Hype meter.

Even though I hate WoW, it is still the No. 1 MMORPG on the planet. I guess just because it was first to provide whatever it did and how it captured the market.

BDO is at a healthy 1million copies margin.
