    Waste your time on something else, it isn't worth it.

    Let me guess it's your first homebrew trial ? first time ever you will code a game in 3D ? first time ever you will code some network based stuff ?

    ive done some programing in C++ and some 3D animation. i was also planning on making it 2d anyways. too much work for 3D. but i was thinking of making it single player at start to where you could just train and do some quests. Until i would be able to set up the network. Also think about it do you think I as 1 man can really make several cities?

    Good luck, is all to be said.

    It sounds like a pipe dream to me, but who knows? You might just pull it off one of these days.

    It would be better to do Ultima Online. More doable and a better game overall.

    This might be the most optimist reply you'll get.

    And making a single player of a MMORPG, is without a doubt, a bad ideia.

    I think the idea of an DS MMORPG would be great.
    But, Warcraft? I don't think so.

    How about something such as MapleStory - it's 2D, cutesy graphics...

    *cough cough*

    with all kiddiness aside, the idea of a DS MMO is great, i dont think WoW or maplestory (even though MSDS shall be reaching NA shores in a few years) will do it well. If you ask me, something with a Mana-style approach would work-2D, top-down-ish, action rpg, etc etc

    MMORPG for Handheld is a no-no.

    The thing I'm wondering about is: "Why base it off another game?"
