I don't find a 'WoW clone' phrase negative at all. In fact, I think no company out there has succeeded in making one. There are some poor imitations of it all over the place. If they actually did manage to clone it, and improve on it, it would've been a success lol. From what we know until now, Wildstar comes across as WoW 2.0, in every positive meaning of the term. It's what WoW should've become, and failed. Everything points it will be just as polished, keeping the core ideas that made WoW great and improving on them; sailing with the changing times while not discarting those designs that work well, and have so for years. Time will show how it will turn out, but so far, they are as close to WoW as any game ever got, plus more. It's not a bad thing.
