It all depends on the speed of the patches and updates to the game.
That is exactly right. You simply have to keep people interested. Any MMO is only as good as its last update/new contence. Once those will stop coming fast enough the game is doomed!
Guild Wars was a running success until ArenaNet stopped releasing new contence. Now even popular outposts (Lions Arch, Kamadan) which used to have up to 10 districts are down to 5 and in places like Aspenwood you might have to wait for 30 minutes and more for opposition to show up.
"No new contence" would have been an understandable policy if GWII was just around the corner but, as thing stand, GW seems to be loosing players at very high rate and I wonder just how may of those will come back once GWII will be released.
