    To be fair... Most of daily posters around here are new to me. I remember 1~2 I see since the Unity 2.0 days, plus hippo.
    I think you could just let ppl commence their own mistakes; Life without any big mistake is not worth living..

    making ann MMO is just the question of how well you can make a Server / Client solution, forget cloud, you need your own server/network logic. And then even if you manage to make that (witch isn't to difficult now days) you need to generate the hype and interest in the game to make it massive, that is really the hard part. Now the question if Unity as a engine is capable of making a MMO? Yes it is, but no guaranty's.. There is no technically things in Unity blocking it.

    Make that the Title of your game, and you will be a millionaire tomorrow on Steam.

    ** edit - the game I am working on has dinosaurs... this is all done in jest..**

    I've tried making an MMO in my second year at uni and frankly it is not impossible to do but incredibly hard if you are just one person or an incredibly small team.

    It takes a lot of time, it takes a lot of effort, you will have break downs and you will need to work on it constant. Not one MMO on the market is perfect. They are constantly being updated on a weekly basis at the very best.

    If you do manage to organise a team to develop an MMO the
