well here is a small list of what you need:

1) a VERY VERY good understand of a programming language of your choice (i would recommend c++ or C#)
2) A good strong team. You will need graphic designers, programmers, modelers, and more
3) A salesperson ( if you can get a prototype done you can try selling your ideas to somewhere like EA games, SOE, Blizzard, or microsoft)
4) Someone who knows DX9/10 or OGL programming
5) a good engine. For 2d you can try a free engine.
6) a good strong faith, because you will be spending long days and nights dwelling on this thing. Most teams put in around 50-60 hours a week during development.
7) the idea that creating a MMORPG is near impossible unless you have done game programming before. Start with a RPG ---> MORPG ---> then think about making it a MMORPG.


you are smart in thinking you should start 2d, as it is alot easier to create.

Wipe the Idea out of your mind. Just start with an easy tic tac toe/ hang man game, then move on to a 2D rpg, then a MORPG, then MAYBE a MMORPG.

Using a program to create it isn't the issue- For any game project, not only do you need to be a proficient programmer in the language that you are using (C# is great, though most games are in C++ because of speed issues arising from the intermediate language) you need to make sure that you are comfortable with the game-specific concepts, such as the game loop, drawing loops, and various other kinds of loops (games are loop heavy). Game programming is its own sort of programming. Also, something like an MMO of some sort, RPG or otherwise, requires intimate familiarity with the client-server model of network programming, since you will be writing two programs, the client and the server daemon. Threads are going to be very important to you as well.

Look up some of the keywords above.

* Game loop
* Client-server
* Threads

Oh yes, and as rgfirefly pointed out, You're likely going to need a team.

Okey, to start off i know of a amazing game maker, it is called RPG Maker XP, download it, Buy the entire maker(Sorry for it, if you dont you have 30 days to complete the game), then go on www.rmxp.org, then go at scripts, and search ``Netplay``, thats what i would suggest, look at tutorials at YouTube for RPG Maker tutorials!

---------------------------------

Good things: No team needed!

---------------------------------

Bad things: Completing a bad MMORPG will take long time with RPG Maker, and you need to buy a server to make it work.(Or something)

---------------------------------

Hope this helped you!

Build a tower just like the tower of Babel with your bare hands and then you have the patience needed to make an MMORPG system by yourself.

I'm running out of analogies for making MMORPGs by yourself.

Except for making an MMORPG yourself is like fighting a 40-man raid's worth of a boss by yourself, or like washing 20 truck stop bathrooms with cotton swabs, or like eating an entire box of Rice Krispies one grain at a time, or like watching a tree grow.

I suppose if you were an engineer from Team Fortress you could just beat your computer with a wrench until the MMORPG is made. If you want to make an MMORPG I suppose you could try that first.
