If you guys want to make a mmorpg like wow but 2D i found this maker.
Eclipse is a free to use 2D game engine. This game creator makes mmorpgs. No previous knowledge is necessary because Eclipse uses a simple point and click system. If the software does not have the requirements you need you can program it with the source.

This is what changes the maps on Eclipse. The actaul Graphics can be changed by the user.
