OP  3/04/09 11:04:14 AM#1

MMORPG.com Managing Editor Jon Wood reports on three of the most visible features of yesterday's Update 1.2 for Mythic's Warhammer Online, the new map features, the grouping tool and the rally call system.

Last night, I gathered a number of my friends and logged into Warhammer Online not only to check out the new Live Event, but also to see the practical application of those pages and pages of patch notes that bombarded us when we first heard about patch 1.2. In this article, I wanted to share some of my early experiences with the new event, and of course, the new patch.

As it turns out, a great big pile of patch notes would seem to directly relate to the length of time that it takes to download a patch. Yeah, I know, that falls into the “wow, this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about” category of stupid and obvious things to say. I only note this because up until now, I can’t remember ever really waiting any length of time for a patch to apply with this game. This time, I spent 20-30 minutes waiting to be able to play. Not to worry though, that wasn’t even enough time to go through the condensed patch notes on the game’s launcher. That being said though, a half an hour isn’t really that long relative to most MMOs, I just thought that it was something worth noting.

Read Early Impressions of 1.2

Cheers,
Jon Wood

Ah well, WAR was fun while it lasted....

 

Thanks for sharing, but I'm wondering what this has to do with the article in question.  Please don't hijack threads simply because you didn't like the game.

I think that article had some good info for everyone. I don't know what the two posters above have issue with...at all.

ONTOPIC:

Looks like some good changes, but honestly i wonder why they didn't just add a flight master to every warcamp, and added a warcamp for ever zone. While the instant travel is a different approach...i guess it works too.

I will mostlikely come back after a few more patches.

Touchy :)  Let me be a bit more clear then:

I liked WAR, I have enjoyed it for the past few months, its not a bad game by any standard I can see.  I played a Git shammie and Squig herder both to 40, and enjoyed every single second of it.

As for the article, it is well written, and a pleasure to read.  My point was however that all the content that you wrote about is too late on the part of EA.  For starters, I have no desire to re-roll a new character and play the same content for a third time, so the lure of new classes simply dont appeal to me.  The other new content also has little bearing on me as very few people actually bother with the dungeons.  (why that is, I dont know, I wish they would)

So I apologise if this was viewed as a hijack, it was not intended as such.

 

 

 

So, basically, you just wanted us to know your no longer like the game for reasons that have nothing to do with the article.

 

Do you have a news letter?

Very nice.

But i'm not sure i like the Rally call feature.

One way that i look at it is that it takes away the ability to outmaneuver (spelling?) your oponents. But on the other hand to defend it, the outmaneuvering isn't happening on the order side on my server.

nice article.

i like the fixes and will play slayer from next week on. i share your irritation on the previous LF system, and I'm happy they improved it.

however the rally call makes orvr a bit more like sc's in my eyes, dunno about that feature ..

So the BO timer thing does basically the same as the State of Realm addon? Or will I still need that?

Despite the major nerf my class (WE) has got I'm still looking forward to playing this patch tonight for the improvements to open RVR with the Zone Domination system and fairer loot drops. Also, it's live event time so if my class totally sucks I can at least work towards unlocking the Choppa...

Thanks for the article. i enjoyed the read. I commend you and your staff for continuing to write unbiased articles about the games we love. It is nice to know WAR is changing for the better and while I no longer play it I am grateful for the fact that i can come here and catch up on all the news of the gaming industry.

 

thanks again

I agree with Kalistar. I now longer play WAR cause it just felt like there was too much missing. And the nerf of WE didnt make me happy either.

But articles like this give me a chance to preview patches and hear what is going on in the game. I am hoping to come back to the game if Mythic keeps fixing and adding things like this.

And...off topic, I am so sick of all the DorkFail fanbois hijacking every thread here just to say how much "X" game sucks and how godly DorkFail is.

I haven't really been playing WAR consistently for awhile.. partly because of the little things that become frustrations as they build up..

I'm glad to see they are starting to add a little polish, it just might have me logging in again to take a look..

Yeah I agree that this was a well written article. I quit playing WAR before my first free month expired because I found the game very tedious to play and the RvR didnt really have any purpose behind it. I just couldnt see what I was fighting for beyond the level progress of my own character and the initial fun factor which seemed to wear off quickly.

However this article has peeked my interest a little bit so I might resubscribe to check it out along with the new classes.....even though I know I'm gonna get bored very quickly but oh well. Who knows maybe in a few years Mythic might actually finish making WAR by including all of the cities that were originally meant to be in the game.

Hi Jon, nice article, although there was one small mistake that you should correct if only for information integrity;

The maps could always be switched, at the bottom of the map there has always been 3 buttons to switch between World View, Pairing View and Zone View, you can then see any zone from anywhere.  You could also use mousewheel down to "zoom out" the map one layer up, and click in to "zoom in".

For the few people that are considering resubbing to War after this patch, my advice is if you have Rank 40s and were bored, don't resub until they patch in Land of the Dead.  For the others that don't mind starting new characters, make sure you pick a busy server (there are only about 3-4 constantly busy ones) the experience is night and day between a busy server and the many many dying ones.

She cuts me into a thousand beautiful pieces...

I would hate to have your job Stadden, The troll posters are one in the same, just some guy on a alt after he gets a tempory ban. And looking at the history of them, seems they are bitter Darkfall players who got their' $$$ taken by Tasos.

Back to topic

GREAT UPDATE, I tell ya this game keeps getting better and better. There are alot of things planned for this game, and I am seeing increased numbers of players on my server (on both factions).

The updates are awsome, makes the game easy to navigate and lots more

Good Job Mythic!

There is a flight master in every warcamp.  They also added flight masters to the zones that didn't have a warcamp.  That change has been in for a while already. I guess they still wanted to do more to help people get to the fight wherever they happen to be when the fur starts flying.

A few other map related things I didn't see in this artical... the hotspot markers on the maps now have mouseover info.  They tell you how many people are fighting at that spot, like 12 or more, 24 or more.  The pairing map also shows the hotspot icon if their is RvR going on in that zone.  Another handy addition is the arrows on the edge of the maps to view the next map in that direction... sure beats backing out and back in to to see the rest of a zone.

The new party and group menu is also great... if for no other reason than the fact you can see the available groups without leaving the one you are in.  Now if they would just add the option for a group leader to add his group to another open warband from the group panel.

All in all the changes are pretty good.  They are mostly aimed at making RvR action easier to find and get to.  No more moving between elf, dwarf and empire looking for the WAR when you log in.

The addon also the ability to broadcast your target or timers to the zone, rvr, warband, or any other place you choose too.  It is also a visible popup indication of when a BO is being taken by the other side.  I will still use that addon for those features.  It is easily toggle-able.
