Tabula Rasa Q&A with Garriott

Lord British Takes on WoW Father of MMOs Richard "Lord British" Garriott trash talks World of Warcraft in a recent interview with TGDaily. Nah, who we kidding, Garriott is the consummate gentleman. We'll simply color his comments... interesting. We ended our interview with what it would take for NCSoft to beat World of Warcraft. Blizzard now says it have more than 6.5 million WoW subscribers. Garriott graciously praised Blizzard, saying, "It is a really good game and deserves the success they are having." He also said that companies report subscribers differently and added, "I have some doubts as to that number." Garriott says the success of WoW has a crossover effect on NCSoft. Players that leave WoW can stream into NCSoft's family of online games. "I have no fear of Warcraft, I applaud their success and I think they are nothing, but good for NCSoft," says Garriott.
