I will admit I am a little slow but I really never thought about the fact that other MMOs might be watching to see if SE could pull off a come back. Even with all the discussion on the forums I guess it didn't sync in or I didn't understand the implications to the broader industry.
I wonder who will be next to try. If games like SWTOR who have some interesting concepts were allowed to go back and try again would they do better the second time? In my mind it poses some interesting questions.
Ultima Online: The Oldest Realm Reborn?
Darker Age of Camelot?
Everquest and then quest some more?
