I gotta say, the world looks incredible. It completely blows the door off of other MMO's. But if it ends up playing just like WoW it's not going to survive. The world doesn't seem like a generic fantasy world either, hopefully I'm right, because I want this to turn out different then every other MMO on the market. I wonder when they planed on showing this, I'm pretty convinced they released it early after all the shit that went down this week.
Hopefully all that crap with RI will give them a bit more incentive to show us more soon. They're not going to survive if they continue to be so tight lipped about it.
EDIT: on a second viewing it does look a but more fantasy generic sadly. But something about it just seems different, I specifically like the way some of those cities looked.
