I haven't played it since Cataclysm... That expansion killed WOW for me.
I dabbled in FFXIV, Rift and SWTOR... Currently, I'm playing SWTOR and waiting for FFXIV A Realm Reborn to open up this Sat. (did beta phase 4 and liked what I saw)

I still play, started in vanilla and been playing on and off. I also quit for majority of Cataclysm as it was pretty bad indeed. Outside perhaps the silly panda-theme, I think MoP is the best WoW has probably ever been.
Just killed Iron Qon HC with my guild the first time yesterday!

I am trying to decide if I want to start back up or not. I was starting to play Order & Chaos, but I can't stand spending that much time on a small phone screen.
I would be willing to try a new game out but I don't want to have to learn a game with an overly complicated fighting system.

There is a benchmark you can download and get a feel for the games graphics... FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Official Benchmark (Character Creation)
I'm on the Leviathan server... "Sinime Oni" is my toons name... not 100% sure I will subscribe once that starts on the 27th... People who were unfortunate enough to buy FFXIV when it first came out get to early start on the 24th (free for 3 days I believe) ARR seems to use the same maps, but as I said, the questing system is 200x better.
Here is a video that demonstrates party play... http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/video/RYkH8g614gA

I didn't get far in FFXIV (original), but assume it is heavy on grouping, to the point where you have to, once you are past level 15-20ish (at least that's the way FFXI was - only the beastmaster could solo the game)
But FFXI was my favorite MMO, no other MMO has drawn me in as much... Granted, it could be because XI was my first MMO
Edit: another cool thing about the FF MMOs... One character can be any job class (after a level 10 quest and unlocking them)... You just change your gear and you are the other class... And you can use some abilities from other classes you have leveled.... For example, level a healing class to a certain point, then raise a Tank class high enough and you could use the healing spells from your tank class.

Haven't played WoW for many years now. Still play SWtOR here an there. I still really like PvP. I may try to ween myself from PC gaming once the XB1 comes out. As of right now its still my favorite.Support your third-party developers. There just about all we have...

Sorry Mase, your thread apears to have been hijacked :(

Cool, I think early access for preorders doesn't start till tomorrow, BUT you can use the benchmark to set what you want your character to look/sound and save it... Then when you go to play, all you have to do is load the saved character, pick a name, birth day, starting job class and server! There are a lot of things that can be customized beforehand

I think "The Elder Scrolls: Online" will be the nail in the coffin for wow. Its just been around so long, I can't imagine it garnering much attention anymore. And while there have been competitors to it in the past, they haven't had the fan base to overcome blizzard.
However, that being said, if I'm not mistaken TES: Online will be completely free to play, unlike wow. Also Bethesda does indeed have the fan base to take them on, and personally Bethesda puts out far higher quality products than blizzard. Diablo 3 was a joke, not even worth releasing, with the marginal updates from diablo 2.

EDIT: In fact, they've confirmed it's the usual buy2play + subscription model.
"What payment model will The Elder Scrolls Online use?We will be announcing exact payment methods at a later date, but globally we will be supporting multiple payment options. Players must purchase The Elder Scrolls Online in order to play it. They will have unlimited access for the first 30 days following activation and can continue beyond that with a subscription of $14.99/month (€12.99 / £8.99)." From their website FAQ.
