    Broad appeal, that means something everyone can relate to... It'll either be modern war based or Sims like.

    I used to play WoW, play Eve instead as i get to blow things up. I like games with guns and explosions and stuff like that, which you just dont get in a fantasy world like wow

    Now more than ever, it doesn't sound like like Universe of Starcraft will be coming. :(

    An MMO FPS would be nice, I quite enjoyed playing Planetside back in the day. Maybe a BF2/COD/Planetside hybrid type o' ting?, actually it would be nice if the next installment of GTA was a gang based MMO FPS actually :)

    Perhaps because it was done by EA? :p

    If it's going to have any kind of "broad appeal" (which, of course, means that it'll appeal to broads :D), they'll have to steer clear of any genres that are seen as "geeky" - which rules out sci fi, fantasy and any kind of war setting. Which means that it'll be as bland as hell and appeal to nobody apart from those people who are already playing Second Life or the Sims.

    Which reminds me - how is Sony's PS3 Home thingy going? It's all gone very quiet since it launched...

    They diluted WoW down to everyone wins already, the new game will play for you? :) (Yes I am one of many to realise MMO's are all flawed.... and ridiculous time sinks!)

    If they want more appeal they'll have to do better Community in game. That's the big zilch of WoW.

    so what it will be actually be entertaining and not boring as hell with the same old repetitive crap that you do every single day, oh and will Blizzard continue to be greedy asses to their loyal customers and make they have to pay for every aspect of the game.
