    I belive that if wow is gonna get "killed", that its this game and now, they acually have the bedst chance, since wow's subcribers is going down, and SWTOR is alot like wow, just with more things to do, but can't be sure since they haven't made any kind of endgame info, and it's now even in game testing yet

    The Old Republic looks as if it will make the same mistakes as Guild Wars with the lack of a seamless world, instanced zones, and far too much phasing to make playing with characters of a different alignment a viable option. WoW is a much more versatile game.

    I'll say what I always say: There is NO WoW-Killer.

    WOW will destroy itself when the time comes. Will SWTOR be a great game and carry a big player-base? Yup. Will I be leaving WOW for SWTOR when its released? Well from what I have played in the Beta, yes I will. It has the potential to snag lots of players from WOW, but it wont 'kill' WOW. Eventually WOW wil crumble, and SWTOR wil be there to sweep up the mess.

    Most of the game is open world so there will be little instanced zones, and phasing is from what i've heard from testers not that big of a deal in the game, but still, we can't know anything for sure before there is much more people in game testing

    This game will not kill WoW but it will remain a close second in my opinion until Guild Wars 2 comes out and just obliterates WoW.

    Star Wars is one of the largest franchises on the planet. Even with the turd "SWG" SOE put out they were able to draw a massive audiance enough to keep the game running for the full five year+ contract, and still make a killing. WoW and SWtOR are in 2 completely different playing fields, thus comparing the 2 is sorta redundant. What will drive SWtOR is the millions of Star Wars fans world wide, not the mmo dorks. I believe SWtOR will be 1000000x more profitable than WoW ever has been, i also believe their player base will explode over night. WoW is a terrible game filled with the ever lasting grind, lame recycled content, poor graphics, and lack of true story. Even if SWtOR follows in this path they still have the + of bring new and fresh and appealing to a larger fan base from the start than wow has ever managed to obtain.

    So is SWtOR the WoW killer we have been waiting for my answer is simply no, but not for the reason many think. I feel WoW its self is the real WoW killer. They are loosing subscribers hand over fist with their lack of reinvestment into the game. SWtOR will be its own contender.

    No. The only game that can "kill" WoW, is WoW.

    WHAT'S THE POINT OF A SIGNATURE IF YOU CAN'T EXCEED ANY AMOUNT WORTHWHILE.

    SWTOR and WoW are 2 very different games and different genres.

    Personally I don't like the whole Star Wars theme much and would probably choose to play Guild Wars / Rift / Aion over SWTOR, but I know others who are raving about it.
    It sounds like it will be a pretty good game, but it's very niche specific so only attracting certain people. I've never been a big star wars fan, and never managed to watch more than a quarter of star trek, it's just not my kind of thing.

    Well still if star wars was never your thing, it might be now, since its bioware, they make everything good in my opinion, but i myself is still very much a fan boy of Star Wars
