It is not enough if you want content updates. Maybe some players can do without but many can't


 

Content update? The game is just over a month old. Name one game that has had a major content update in the first month? They are at least constantly fixing issues and trying to balance the scenario vs. RVR issues people are complaining about. With the upcoming server transfers they are at least giving people the option to find a new home with more players. They have already announced a couple of the missing classes and other content in December. The game if far from perfect believe me I know, I crash to the log in screen at least once every 30 minutes. But for anyone complaining about a lack of content updates you obvioulsy have not played many games, most who give free content updates do it every 3-6 months depending on the devs. I will be canceling myself until December in hopes that the bugs are fixed and the servers shake out. And Azrile is it your mission in life to troll EVERY game on this site, you are a pitiful shell of a person to comment on every thread on the forums how your game WOW is so much more supeior than any said MMOs. What a coward you use a however old game, WOW, to put down new and improving games.

1. Box sales continue to plummet off the charts, which means very few new players

2. 50% of Xfire users(5% of War players)  that played the game a month ago are no longer playing it.    How much does that imply about non-xifre players?  Who knows... but it is a significant number.  Even if you assume every non-xfire player resubscribed, it still shows a 10k drop in players from last month.

3.  The biggest announcement made in the last few weeks is that server mergers are coming soon.  Again, not a sign of a growing game.

There is simply no piece of evidence that points to Warhammer ever having as many players as it has today.   You also have to worry about MJ lying about not being able to give subscription numbers.   Yesterday WOW announced 11M subscribers which clearly shows that a publicly traded company CAN announce subscription numbers when it is something they are proud of.   MJ instead insists on throwing out misleading numbers like 'accounts created' rather than saying 'games sold".


 

Havnt you beatn the poor horse enough.  How many more months will you spend on this forum instead of a forum for a game you like.

Cant wait till the servers are back up so I can play a game instead of hanging out in this forum.

Alot of people liked EQ didnt mean other companys didnt make profit.  Mythic is making money and thats all they care about they never tried to be the "WoW killer" just like they didnt try to be the "EQ killer"

Give it a rest Nancy Drew. The game will do fine you dont need subs in the millions to have a game with a steady amount of players and updates.

Well Sirlorn, glad I gave you a chuckle :)

But I got one too when you post "I have been part of RvR battles where at least 100 toons on the field". Err, isnt it meant to hold more than 100? 100 sure doenst sound like a lot to me, and thats the point of this guys post. Numbers.

My basic is, unless they can retain the numbers you wont even have to worry about more than 100 people fighting and wondering about stress levels. Mythic envisioned HUNDREDS doing that, not 100. But again, I told you Im not techinical and thats not what I said about the RvR. Other T4s said that who know better. My toon never got past T3 before it got the sparseness of my server kicked in. (Tor something server). I couldnt take the silence in there for the type of gameplay given. It was like playing Vanguard, which at least has things like crafting and diplomacy  you can do solo when no one to group with.

I just think they should kill servers from what I personally had seen. It was a constant gripe in there and apparantly still is. So that MAY point that Mythic cannot sustain its true numbers and the shiny 'Palin Effect' is starting to wear off. They wont crash out as Ive said many times, but they wont ever expand this games base but so far. Its gonna be niche.

If those other PvP games, Darkfall Aion and GuildWars 2 and others come out with smoother play, fresher graphics and more polished, Whammer better looks out.

 

LMFAO, dude, this was 100 toons in a small section of one pairing in a zone!!  With seige cannons, and other goodies that all have to be rendered, along with all dem packets you call players that your PC has to also make real purdy like and in sync so when you button smash your keyboard, you actually get the desired result.  The point was this, the game in its present state can obviouslly support these types of battles, what other MMO out RIGHT now can (stable) say the same?!  Let's see the same numbers in an AoC seige, HAR HAR.....CTD.....boom CTD.....I guarentee!     Let's look at it this way, wtf are you expecting, the whole server to converge in a t3 area that is under seige, or what is your point?

This game is gonna be niche, HAHAHA......you are talking about a game that is designed around game play that is BY FAR the smaller part of a community as a whole, I wish PvP players actually came close to PvE players numbers, and that my friend is part of teh problem too, it isn't Mythic did this wrong or Mythic miscalculated this, it is MOST players sub'd to WAR and weren't core PvPers to start with!  Logged into a Realm vs Realm mechanic game with a PvE mindset, plain and simple.

And to your last statement, well, first off......LMAO, Darkfall, TCoS and MortalOnline are the ONLY real fresh PvP games that will release, they are not RvR in design, what they are though are as true as can be to date Skill based PvP oriented games, with Active Targeting, there isn't any omg ASSIST UberTank_01, as you have to aim, and actually adjust to a different game play mechanic all together, I haven't been following GW2 but Aion is NOT teh new "PvP' game, I guarentee, heh.....and graphics....rofl, Warhammer, Gamers Workshop the holders of the IP stayed true to their mythos with their (I hate to say it) WoW'ish fantasy graphics.....OMG, smell the coffee, Blizzard ripped off Gamers Workshop with their current big money franchise to begin with!

 

 I now give you PEW PEW and cut your reasoining to shreds, come play on Wolfenburg, Destro please so I can make you burn heretic....../chuckle

I always love reading the doom-sayers and their posts. Here is a little information for all you doom-sayers of games.

1. No game has ever launched without problems. There is no way a company can foresee problems with a live game untill it goes live. Sure they can get it down to a minimal amout. But you don't know how a car runs till you drive it down the road as to say.

2. Most MMO companies have always worked the problems out given a little time.

3. Some of the worst games are still online. I can think of one that got so many bad posts and went down as the only MMO that lost 3/4 of it's subscribers the first month. But it is still there...

4. If you pesonally like a game, you will play it no matter what others say. So why even waste time making negative posts about a game you don't like and go find one you do like.

5. Every game comes down to what you want out of a game. There are games out there for everyone of all age groups. (One of the meanest PvP players I ever seen was an 82 year old woman. I loved going alongside killing people with her)

6. For you forum trolls who never even play a game. And for those who post on games you havn't played. How can you make a comment on something you havn't even done? That is like me saying I don't like pizza when I have never eaten one. (hehe I love pizza)

7. Every game has population ups and downs.

8. When a game first launches there is an imbalance of zones. This is due because... opps there are only 10 people on this server who are level 30. When a game first launches this happens. The hardcore 300 hour a week gamers are up near the top and the weekenders are still back at the begining. And hardly anyone is in between. It will balance out after awhile.

9. Get your facts before you post. Nothing more embarrasing than making a post and not having your facts right. Know what your are posting about before you post. (All the things in this post I searched up and also know from experience). Don't embarras yourself.

There you have it. Some true facts about gaming. Instead of doom-saying and negative posts spend that time finding a game you like. People who like a game will play no matter what you say. Reminds me of the top "10 worst things a gamer could hear" list. (don't remember where I seen it). But one of them was SOE just took over your game. Even I know that SOE has bad karma with most gamers. But they still have their games and enough players to keep them going...

The last thing that made me stop WAR was when destro attacked our fortress outside of Aldorf. Well....if you call 3-4 secs lag playable then the game was really able to handle the players. But for that's not the case. Mass scale sieges are just not playable.

Crashes to desktop during scenarios wasn't pleasent either. And don't blame my system please, only WAR makes it out of the 20-30 games I've played on this PC.

What can we blame then?  Without knowing your system specs, how can you justify your comment that mass sieges are unplayable?

With my system:
AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core
4 Gig DDR2 RAM (1066mhz)
GeForce 9600GT

I have little problem.  The only thing I have to do is turn of spell particles.  Doing that, I have very little lag and almost NERVER CTD.

Raquelis in various games

Played: Everything
Playing: Hearthstone, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Destiny (XBOX ONE)

Anticipating: Everquest Next, Everquest Next Landmark, Warhammer 40K

The secret to making a great game: Don't cater to the masses!

Sirlorn, I guess my point would be Mythic had a certain number of players in mind. They made so many servers to reflect that. They have loads of empty and crippled servers where people are unhappy. They are now merging them but they should collapse them. You keep pointing out that fun, fun, fun and thats good for ya. If you like this game, Im not jealous of that. I actually was hoping to see this game succeed better than it is. Why?

So uber players like you would have one place to collectively come and kill each other, instead of trying every game out and messing with us carebears there. Whammer was spose to be that, but it looks it wont be it. Its gonna be niche meaning.. Whammer fans and those who are just bored with others will give this a try. That will be the base. From what is posted anywhere, again, get used to that select 100 players RvR you enjoyed. Sounds like a good environment for you to play in, since that will probably be the max. Not what Mythic hyped.

I always hear a Whammer say" I dont give a flying **** about WoW! Stop talking about it. Stop comparing Whammer to WoW." Obviously they do, cause almost at any chance, the first chance they get its..  "go back to WoW" or "kiddy camp WoW". This is because of mixed signals from Mythic. They state they dont care about WoW and Wow fans. What a complete shill. What business wouldnt want to get its competitor's customers? Thats a bad model when you say "we only want hardcore pvp fans" cause theres only like.. 1000 of those "War all the time, I ownz you, I want blood!" players around. The rest is all casual pvp and gaming. Log on, play some, leave. As opposed to PvE carebears like myself who generally play for years almost everyday.

Mythic definitely wanted some of WoW's pie and to say they didnt is frankly, playing to YOU, the "uber killyalots" psyche.  See, they make you think youre playing something special, hype you up cause youre one of the few 'real' players. And you buy that nonsense and when someone points out you arent playing anything original or really that much fun long term, you get all defensive. Its like a slap in your face cause it reflects on your judgement that youd pay for this, when you could do something like Guild Wars or Call of Duty4 for free.

Well, please stop taking it personally. If you like this, like some like 'Candyland WoW', then stop coming on here and fanboing it up. Go play the "best RvR ever". You need to stay out of these defend Whammer threads just like people need to stop flaming it. Your just as bad as they are. Actually your worse cause youll say they have no game to play, no life. Well, you supposedly GOT one, yet you come on and defend it like you invented the game. So you'd rather be yakking than playing Whammer?

Relax dude.. youre still "uber'. BTW* you WOULD have killed me.. I was a Bright Wizard and our tanks stunk so bad, I was picked out each time in those fights. Boring.You are VERY right about Destro PEW PEWing. Order sucked badly, and thats one reason this game has big problems holding people atm.

I agree, and I think the title of the thread is a dead giveaway. There's a certain kind of irony in someone who uses phrases like "n00bs" to defend the game that made wildly inaccurate claims about its PvP to attract the "hardcore" PvP audience, and then jumped on the PvE raiding bandwagon the first chance it got. At least WoW can add new raid dungeons and new reputations to grind, where is WAR going to go from here? Nowhere but down.

Doomsayers is probably not the right word for the ppl that are starting to see the shortcomings of WAR.   There has already been a topic from MMORPG about the unbalance in factions.  That is a huge thing when a game is supposed to be a RVR.  But there are many other issues coming up now that will "force" ppl to quit. 

The unbalance in EXP and Renown gained by classes is incredible.  THis issue has already destroyed scenarios since dps classes are going solo getting alot more renown than tanks and healers.  What is Mythic doing ?  Nothing.
 

PVE content is not up to acceptable standard in many ways.  So alot of the PVE players that bought the game orginally based on it have left or will leave when WOTLK comes.  Mythic is not doing anything to strengthen PVE or PQs in next big patch.  I dont even think they mentioned PQs in it.

Class balance.  Huge issues with 30+ classes are now coming up.  Some of those should really be considered as gamebreaking and there are problaby 1000s of ppl that log off every night very frustrated on how some tactics are dominating the game based on abilites of 1 or 2 classes.  Some of those issues could be considered as expoits cause they are so big that its just unbelivable that nothing has been done about them.

Biggest issues ofc is the Magus/engineer trick that is kinda destroying RVR and scenarios atm.  Yes these classes can pull up to 9 ppl through doors in RVR sieges.  THankfully Myhic fixed the magus issue that was pulling huge number of ppl (20-30) and destroying all chance of Order getting any sieges cause of it.  Scenarios are RUIND cause if this since pulling 9 ppl - ever 20 sec - from 65 yard radius and then using mass silence, knowckdown and rooting + aoe dmg kills an ENTIRE scenario group in 3-4 sec.  And if not - then it will 20 sec later.   

There are many more issues that are so big atm that there is no wonder that the game is looing players atm.  It does not mean the game is bad - it just means it has some big issues for 30+ content and Mythic has been very slow to try to relove these issues.  And then the Faction balance issue pretty much something that will always haunt this game from now on.  Server transfers will not change anything about that.  Destruction is dominating all severs and more and more ppl are rolling destro cause they pretty much know that order wont be able to cope. 

I think there are now quite a big group of ppl that have desided to stop for now and see how Myhtic is going to solve the problems that have come up.  Next big patch that talks of "no nerf and only buffs" isn't quite true and if Mythic doesn't handle it right we could see this game fall very fast down with just 100% destruction playing on few servers.  I hope not.  But sadly it seems like a 4 year old game is gonna beat WAR hands down.  Thats sad cause I just HATE that game now - but I have no other choise cause PVE in WAR is to weak to bother with.

Sirlorn, I guess my point would be Mythic had a certain number of players in mind. They made so many servers to reflect that. They have loads of empty and crippled servers where people are unhappy. They are now merging them but they should collapse them. You keep pointing out that fun, fun, fun and thats good for ya. If you like this game, Im not jealous of that. I actually was hoping to see this game succeed better than it is. Why?

So uber players like you would have one place to collectively come and kill each other, instead of trying every game out and messing with us carebears there. Whammer was spose to be that, but it looks it wont be it. Its gonna be niche meaning.. Whammer fans and those who are just bored with others will give this a try. That will be the base. From what is posted anywhere, again, get used to that select 100 players RvR you enjoyed. Sounds like a good environment for you to play in, since that will probably be the max. Not what Mythic hyped.

I always hear a Whammer say" I dont give a flying **** about WoW! Stop talking about it. Stop comparing Whammer to WoW." Obviously they do, cause almost at any chance, the first chance they get its..  "go back to WoW" or "kiddy camp WoW". This is because of mixed signals from Mythic. They state they dont care about WoW and Wow fans. What a complete shill. What business wouldnt want to get its competitor's customers? Thats a bad model when you say "we only want hardcore pvp fans" cause theres only like.. 1000 of those "War all the time, I ownz you, I want blood!" players around. The rest is all casual pvp and gaming. Log on, play some, leave. As opposed to PvE carebears like myself who generally play for years almost everyday.

Mythic definitely wanted some of WoW's pie and to say they didnt is frankly, playing to YOU, the "uber killyalots" psyche.  See, they make you think youre playing something special, hype you up cause youre one of the few 'real' players. And you buy that nonsense and when someone points out you arent playing anything original or really that much fun long term, you get all defensive. Its like a slap in your face cause it reflects on your judgement that youd pay for this, when you could do something like Guild Wars or Call of Duty4 for free.

Well, please stop taking it personally. If you like this, like some like 'Candyland WoW', then stop coming on here and fanboing it up. Go play the "best RvR ever". You need to stay out of these defend Whammer threads just like people need to stop flaming it. Your just as bad as they are. Actually your worse cause youll say they have no game to play, no life. Well, you supposedly GOT one, yet you come on and defend it like you invented the game. So you'd rather be yakking than playing Whammer?

Relax dude.. youre still "uber'. BTW* you WOULD have killed me.. I was a Bright Wizard and our tanks stunk so bad, I was picked out each time in those fights. Boring.You are VERY right about Destro PEW PEWing. Order sucked badly, and thats one reason this game has big problems holding people atm.

 

Hmmm, who is taking things personally?!  I never called you or anyone a carebear, and I know I do not have that "I am uber" attitude that you numerously make mention of and assert in my general direction of being.

 

I played EQ 1 for 5 and a half years, PvE EQ......beta'd WoW too......hit cap way before any new content was released, and way before PvP was a thought in Blizz devs heads......I tought about PvP because killing an NPC that is put on a xyz path gets, well boring....add that human aspect of competition, and well......it is a whole new game.  That being said.....

 

I am sorry you were picked on in school, and I am sorry your Warhammer experience was not pleasent!  I am sincere in the last remark, again you miss the point, the 100 players fielded example was to state for my experience thus far, I think the game can and will be able to handle large interactions with lots of players present, this was my opinon, and came from the experience I shared.......   Now.....anytime I have said the games Warhammer Online, and World of Warcraft should not be compared was in refference to the fact that they are TOTALLY different games not only in design of game play, but in "the end goal"  

I will simply break it down to one is PvE based, and the other is RvR PvP based.....as stated .......numerously.....why it is you want to continue to bash Mythic, and what "they hyped" and fortelling teh "bleak future" you WANT it to be, again in my general direction and other "uber PvP players" general directions, I will point you to my opening sentence in the third paragraph of this reply. 

 

Now my invetation to come play on my server so I could "pwn" you was totally in jest (although had you shown up and had fun with it woulda been neat too) and just MY way of trying to be wity and funny at teh end of my (what I thought was clear) reply to help you see where I was coming from.

 

Last thing, I never once said Mythic did not or would not want ANY subscriptions, and or players they could get, be it from AoC bailers, to WoW bailers, to OMG StickMan MMO bailers......please stop from putting or trying to put words in my mouth as it were, I ask you once nicely.  Again, it is MY opinon that you are STILL missing the point(s) I and others have been \ are trying to make, and such is life.....I hope you find your next venture out from whatever game it is you play now, to something new more enjoyable, as I believe from your first reply, and most deffinetly from this one that you NEED some enjoyment in your life, as you are the one taking things personally and seem to have a bit of angst left still from your bad experience(s). Heh  

I said good day!

Magus don't cause much of a problem on our server. There's plenty of ways to disrupt them. Silence, knockdown, focus dps.

Sometimes they get you, but sometimes our engis do as well =)

omg. Sirlorn!

I JUST saw you post on the WoW forum.

Again, heres a Whammer fan who plays such a 'great' game and is such a more knowledgeable player than most, that hes running to post on WoW boards then runs BACK here to defend some more.

Dude, you need your own game. Called Forum Defender.

Crashes to desktop during scenarios wasn't pleasent either. And don't blame my system please, only WAR makes it out of the 20-30 games I've played on this PC.

 

Please name the most recent MMO, and I mean MMO, that you have NEVER had a crash happen with your system?  Thanks


 

LoTR never crashed for the 2 months I played it. And of course WoW crashes once every 1-2 months but in WAR I had to switch chars. My human tank ( was it swordbreaker?) crashed 3 out of 4 scenarios. On the Bright Wizad was far better only one crash on every 4-5 sceanarios. And believe me I tried everything.....PC box dust cleaning, reinstall drivers, lowered video settings, even switched display cable from digital to analog /a guy on forum suggested it/......nothing helped.

With my system:
AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core
4 Gig DDR2 RAM (1066mhz)
GeForce 9600GT

I have little problem.  The only thing I have to do is turn of spell particles.  Doing that, I have very little lag and almost NERVER CTD.

What my computer spec has to do with server lag?

But ok:
6400 core2duo

2gb DDR 800

ROFL Popinjay, actually......I am multi tasking with several boards that I subscribe to, while checking 5 email accounts, monitoring 2 diff servers for work (cause when I am remote, I can't really be playing ANY MMO).

 MMORPG's home page is open, I close the posts when I am done replying, and if I happen to notice that a topic I posted on pops up on the current forum activity section, then I go look, or if it is a topic that interests me, I do not troll teh forums, and mainly shoot my wit and opinons from this interface.     Not that I had to explain myself to you or anyone else, but you caught me in a sharing mood........so, try again somewhere else, I am sure there is someone that chopped your banter down to what it ISN'T, you are still sore at you can goad into forum PEW PEW.....but my coffee mug is empty, so ciao for now......

The unbalance in EXP and Renown gained by classes is incredible. THis issue has already destroyed scenarios since dps classes are going solo getting alot more renown than tanks and healers. What is Mythic doing ? Nothing. (posted by Frobner)

 

Guess you havn't read todays patch notes... one is they upped the renoun gained by healers. I havn't heard about tanks complaining about renoun. I'm not saying they havn't, just I havn't heard it. Another fix was they added experience to objectives. So are far as your comment about doing nothin....

Also I agree with a post made earlier.. the game is only one month old. No MMO has ever released a major patch in the first month. I can't think of one that did after two months.. though I am not saying that it hasn't happened. And Mythic said the major content changes and fixes will be coming with the patch in Dec I think it was. Along with some of the classes that got cut at launch. So seems like they are doing something, people just have to give them the time to do it.

no Sirlorn,

The fact that youd rather go back and troll 7pages into a post on the Wowhead forums called "WoW dominates Aoc, Whammer.. etc" says volumes about you. Then bounce back here to reply some more.

Still don't care about WoW?  Still would be rather playing Warhammer huh?  lmao

There are many things that can attribute to a 2-3 second "lag".  However, this isn't necessarily the servers fault.  Alot of problems can be attributed to client side issues: slow system, bad firewalll, unstable internet connection, ect.  Bad firewalls can filter out important stuff.  Think of it from the perspective of making coffee.  If you use 1 filter, you'll have good coffee.  The more filters you use though, the weaker the coffee becomes.  If your Firewall is too strong, you'll have problems.  If you are running too many firewalls, you'll have problems.

CTD:  If you're running Windows VIsta and have 2gig of RAM, while playing WAR; you're going to encounter some problems.  WAR uses 1.7gig of ram constantly.  The more system processes you have, the quicker your RAM fills up.  Once it fills up, it uses your page file.  From there, CTD are more frequent.

My point was, WAR servers are relatively stable.  Alot of the issues are client based, not server based.  My old system I crashed every 30min.  The computer is/was old.  It "met" the required specs, but that alone isn't enough for the game IMO.  Built my new system, and I've crashed maybe 1-2 times since then.
