I think you're misinterpreting what I was saying. I didn't say it wont have anything in common w/ WoW. I said the graphics while cartoony aren't as cartoony as WoW.
And that the reason SWG died is because it changed the game entirely
years into it, effectively POing TO THE MAX the entire player population. For example, if people wanted to be jedi they literally had to waste untold hours doing insanely painstaking tasks. Then they decided to just make it a starting class essentially nullifying more hours than i want to even imagine those players had put into leveling.
SoE also did a piss poor job w/ their attempt to copy WoW, because they wanted it to be PS2 friendly. Which was another stupid decision, as far as I know it never came out on the PS2.
WoW does a lot of things right obviously, Bioware is smart to not disregard everything they did. It cant be a complete clone, I mean how exactly would they reconcile running as a ghost back to your corpse in a graveyard in TOR?
He was probably referring to a seamless open world mixed with instances for storied quests, along with some crafting & looting thrown in & some sort of marketplace.
I mean, for example, in TOR you have companions; do you have companions in WoW? In TOR you can task your NPC companions to do your crafting, looting, quests, etc.. for you while you're offline. Can you do that in WoW?
Granted, my total combined experience with WoW was only a couple days; feel free to correct me.

There aren't a lot of species that have been revealed yet, but of the ones which are there are some that are more alien-ish than just a repaint.
There are for sure way more bizare looking aliens than that though. We can only hope that they are playable.Edited by pale_neon - 5/1/11 at 12:12am
