    No duh! I think the same thing will happen with codemasters after their turning point flop.

    Exactly. Are we all surprised that no one can make a substantial dent in WoW’s marketshare, by doing the EXACT SAME THING?

    The rare exception, Guild Wars, recently reached a million in sales (however, they don’t rely on monthly fees so a million, while good, is nothing compare to the 2 billion yearly that Actiblizzard takes in).

    Tabula Rasa, from all the reviews that I read and heard, just wasn’t interesting enough to keep people playing. I imagine Hellgate: London suffered or will suffer the exact same fate.

    Played the Tabula Rasa beta. If your going to make a MMOFPS “like” game, why not just make a true MMOFPS.
