Its just such a hard market to break into if you don't score big and fast you don't survive. Look at Age of Conan, had a huge userbase and due to bugs and lack of high-level content the place is a mere shadow of its former self. Tabula released to many bugs and unpolished gameplay (at least I thought so). I have heard they did a lot of patch work though and I definitely plan on trying it again before it closes down.

Another one falls to the wow machine.

The trend I notice is simply, bad start = bad in the long run.
