By that definition Dargenus, practically all MMOs are dying. Wildstar will be 'dying' after less than a year. Of the MMOs I know, Neverwinter is possibly the most similar to Wildstar. Some of Wildstar's players will be new to the MMO genre (and hopefully the game will be have a good enough difficulty curve to encourage them). Many however will be MMORPG players, and thus poached from current games. A large chunk of said players will come from WoW simply because a large chunk of MMORPG players play WoW due to its sheer population. Nostalgia aside, vanilla had a lot of clunky and bad mechanics. Current WoW has some bad mechanics as well, but overall the game has years of experience in improvement. Hopefully Wildstar can build on that platform.
