NowGamer has spoken to Michael Pachter about the impact Star Wars The Old Republic will have on WoW, and he has given them some interesting stats. Take with a grain of salt.
Somebody's going to make a whole lot of money.
SWTOR is looking good. It's some solace after the last Star Wars MMO that's for sure.
where was he all this time?
SWTOR will gain 10% of Wow population and 30-40% of everyone elses, plus a shit load of new comers. From what I played of SWTOR beta, i won't buy a game all next year.
WoW will convert 500k users to SWToR. The small decline in WoW's numbers is on Blizzard. Pandas or god damn light saber wielding Jedis...easy choice and I don't even like Star Wars.
that was a stupid ass comment. as if panda's are the only race in the game now. give it up.
I dont think the melee classes will be fun long turn. But the bounty hunter class and the gunslinger smuggler classes are kickass range classes. I played bounty hunter in the beta now thats fun. Not sure about melee but range classes are the most fun of mmo's i played. And i have max toons on wow,lord of the rings online, and dungeon and dragons online.
SWTOR will flop, mark my words.
i agree,this mmo will do good for couple of months then decline....
