PC only = massive failure for me. They just ruined the franchise IMO.

How come developers always think they need to make a franchise in to an MMO in order for it to be successful.

This is pretty dissappointing.

Think how amazing a next-gen KOTR would have been. Instead, we get this. It will be a hit for two months at which point everyone will return to WoW.
