I enjoy AOC right now, but you are correct, AOC will fade, and it will fade faster that most people think. A majority of the people i have talked to about AOC are playing it because
1. They are bored of WoW
2. They are bored of Daoc
3. Have no other game to play atm
FunCom couldn't of had better timing with the release of their game. With no other major MMO that has really hit the market as hard as they have, They have lured away people that have grown bored of the major MMO's out right now.
Once Warhammer release you will see a pretty good decrease in population in WoW, AOC, and DAOC. Mythic (now EA Mythic) has a very strong reputation in the MMO scene. The longevity of DAOC is a testament for Mythics dedication to their games. But until warhammer comes out, i am very content playing AOC since no other game peaks my interest right now.
