Yep every MMO is a "WoW-clone" just because devs decide put a quest marker above NPCs heads
People who use the "wow-clone" phrase must be ignorant to the development of RPGS in the last 20 years or so when you consider the likes of Neverwinter Nights, KOTOR, Everquest all pre-date Blizzards game.
I'm sure if the The Secret World has quest marks above NPC's heads it will be another "WoW-clone".
If people ever wonder why Blizzards game is hated it's because the players constant reference to every MMO being a "WoW-clone" as if the game invented MMOs and single-handily changed the genre by putting question marks above NPCs.
Nothing is more untrue than other games being a copy of Blizzards cash cow.
