@Milk I once believed that MMORPGs needed better combat and action, but with time I found out that most of the playerbase liked the genre because it required no fast reaction type like FPS or more combat focused games like PSO2.
At it's core, it's more strategical and less reaction skill based (not saying that it's bad, just different for a reason). And with time, most of the game genres became hybrids.
In the end, variety of game styles is great and hoping for wow or ffxiv to be more like pso2 might not be for the best... I would love it, but probably not everyone's cup of tea.
I could compare different genres in games being compared like trying to make a ping pong player play on the olimpics for Tennis... Like, it's pretty much the same but the table is the floor and the objects are bigger... And they would probably look at you like o_O
