On this week’s Massively OP Podcast, Justin and I tried to answer a question from a listener named Kenny, who proposed that we consider the idea of games other than World of Warcraft being used as a prop in the “WoW-Killer” paradigm.
“Do you think we’ll get to a point where a game other than WoW could take a majority of the playerbase away from another game, essentially ‘killing’ it?” he wondered. “Will Blade & Soul or Crowfall ever be called a Guild Wars 2-killer? Will Star Citizen someday be labeled The EVE-killer?”
What do you think? Are we ever going to see a WoW-killer-killer? What MMORPG has the best chance of being the next “x-killer” meme in the genre?
