Developers are too dumb to realize that they have to compete with WoW, which is pretty polished after 4 years. The excuse of, "it's new, WoW had problems when it was new" can't hold water these days. People don't want to go through growing pains in another MMO when they already have lived through it with WoW.
IMO, the ONLY MMO that comes close to WoW, right now, in polish and what it delivers is LOTRO which isn't an option for many since the PvP is rather limited.
Tr1ck I would completely agree with you, but when mythic launched Dark Age of Camelot a few years ago(maybe more :P) The launch went very well.. You can read that in the reviews
This is the only thing that is holding me on. And mostly I would like to start with something new that still has plenty of surprises in it for me and my buddies
