Okay, keep in mind this isn't going to happen. If it did, I would be shocked.
So, since there are MMO's about there basically beating the Dead Horse of Fantasy with a stick made of FAIL, why not a military MMO?
A friend and I were drinking beer and "designing" a video game (basically just saying what would be awesome). We've done this for a long time. When we started spewing ideas about an MMO based on the military theme, something hit me-
Crazy uniforms, close combat, and all this other jazz- dude, that sounds a lot like GI Joe.
So, without further ado, here we go- let's design this game.
Race: Okay, this is GI Joe. You're human, moron. You don't get a "race". Instead, you get to choose a "branch of origin". A branch takes the place of this, giving you your "base stats".
Joes get the choice of Marines, Air Force, Navy, Army. Further expansions could include Coast Guard, Homeland Security, Police/SWAT or something like that.
Cobra gets Vipers, Troopers, Iron Grenadiers, and Maybe Night Creepers, CLAWS, or Coil troopers. I haven't really thought about it a lot.
Basically, you "level up" your Primary MOS first. Infantry, Medic, Close Quarters Combat, Sharpshooter, etc. Beef up these Careers and move into your Secondary MOS- which is what really determines how badass you are. The options are limitless.
I realize "magic" is out of the question and so are "magic items". Instead, you'd start with basic crap (Like crappy greenshirt fatigues and an unmodified M16A2), then you can move on up.
But if there is one thing I hate it's working my butt off just to buy a new weapon. I think the game would be awesome if you could instead modify your current weapon for multiple levels (Collapsable/folding stock, laser sights, long-range scope) and basically use your money for ammo, grenades, and some cosmetic goodies (Desert scarves, camo cloaks, so on and so forth).
So... whaddya think?

It's really not a fresh idea but it's never been done, I mean Honestly if they didn't screw it up it'd be awesome but honestly so few devs out there that work on MMOs don't screw up. Eh who knows maybe blizz is working on some awesome FPS MMO ...

I could get into that.
Some changes i would make.When you start out as a greenshirt,you don't get a codename until you reach a certain lvl.Then you start to do missions with named characters and starting fighting the big wigs of cobra.
You would also have to figure out a way to do vehicle drivers.Maybe some folks want to be a tomahawk polit or something like that.
I would want to play as a cobra.Work my up to a Alley viper of course.Maybe release it like City of Heroes/Villians.Have a Joe disc and a cobra disc.
Think about it.Hawk sends you a message,you have to assault Cobra Island.You take off from the FLAGG,land on the beach and see and attack it for the scale it really is....BIG.
