I think it's probably safe to say that the era of the "MMO" is gone. The most recent WoW expansion turned out to be a fairly massive disappointment, as it's become obvious that activation has started to influence game decisions (or so it seems most believe).

Meanwhile, large swaths of players are now playing gobshite like Fortnite. It would appear that the direction for gamedevs will be largely focused on getting players to play that kind of shit and MOBAS which are also very popular.

What hope do we old school MMO gamers have? Is there anything that will come close to recapturing the glory? Its kind of a bummer
