You know what would be awesome? Interactive MMO for exchange. The reason why games like Cybernations or Nationstates (2) or Erepublik tend to be popular is because players control the gameworld. In Cybernations everyone is oppressed by NPO and it was fought against three times, now it`s long enemies are weak and almost non-excistant. Would it be cool when The Old Republic comes, we let the war broke out as players and when the next generation comes in in few months, we are already negotiating new peace in which like year later Republic would be exiled to Outer Rim and new players would start there, building towards their own interactive Republic. Each player fights and all players as a side negotiate or ignite war for the whole cause of the Republic or the Sith (and Bioware would make sure that no side would win the ultimate victory). I mean, over 4 years of Cold War back in Azeroth is just... boring.
