Until someone changes the game paradigm, WoW will still dominate. I honestly wonder how many of those Warhammer people will be playing tomorrow when 3.0 hits. Even better, how many people will be playing Nov. 13?
Someone needs to just change the game design. AoC and War are all too influenced by WoW. We are tired of the same mechanics (or if we aren't we will stick with WoW). Then again, at Blizzcon, Blizzard announced a completely new game in development.
