  • This may be one of the first successful non WOW MMORPG's of the last couple of years none have had a very good run, good numbers at start but trailing off quickly. I dont see this being HUGE, but I think its going to do better than its brothers (except its big brother). I have played um all, and most just get boring after that starter gloss wears off. This one has a few tiny extras that seem to make it a bit "more" the class system is really not much different than other games, but its options can make you think you are really Customising your character and its fun..

    Success- yes, Huge success- no.. it wontbe going F2P in a year like all hte others.. at least I dont think it will.
