OP  2/27/13 1:09:25 PM#1

James Casey has posted a short farewell on the Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes site to let players know that the game will be ending its beta and full service run on March 29th.

Launched in Beta just over a year ago, the free-to-play battle arena version of Warhammer Online was a grand experiment.  We were able to test new server technology, learn more about the free-to-play market, and engage in endless quick, down and dirty, three-way battles any time of day or night.  On all of these fronts, we were able to make great inroads and insights and deliver a fast and frenetic game. 

Read the full post on the Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes site.

It was a pretty fun game, but it had so many glaring issues that weren't fixed when I was playing that it was just horrible. Plus it had almost no advertising, and a very small playerbase.

Bah, they should have just made Warhammer Online f2p instead of wasting funds on this garbage.

I had fun playing the game a couple of times. There were a lot of issues thou. A lack of advertising kept the player base pretty small.

But that was Mythic for you.


Can't say I'm really all that sad. With Warhammer Online, Mythic absolutely refused to ever listen to their playerbase and marched to the beat of its own drum. If you were able to look up stubborn-ass developer in the dictionary, you'd most likely see the Mythic or Warhammer Online logo.


Their devoted players pleaded with them on many topics/features/issues but it almost always was to no avail. That damn Bright Wizard exploit was one problem that springs to mind.


Anybody with half-a-brain could have told you that WoH was never going to draw a decent following. The damage had already been done with Warhammer Online. Too many players were already scorned from that debacle!

Your fail comment, failed.

I'm so not understanding why time was wasted on this project instead of simply fixing WAR.  It had so much potential yet so poorly executed with so many issues.

This is a prime example of Mythic not understanding their own games.

Listen, Mythic:

Large scale open world PvP = 3 factions

Small scale instanced PvP / battlegrounds = 2 factions


They did exactly the opposite in WAR + WoH.

i <3 MMO's

Id play a true warhammer MOBA in a heartbeat. I hate that this franchise doesnt get the work it deserves. Warhammer has the BEST art in high fantasy in my opinion. it deserves something worth its name and this dev just cant hack it.

Currently playing: MH4U, Bloodborne, FFXIV, and a bit of GW2 on the side.

Gaming should be about fun, not gender equality.

I agree. It's sad that we cant get a good MMO or MOBA from this awesome IP. But then again which awesome IP did create a good MMO?

LOTRO, AoC, DCU, SW:TOR etc are all trash MMOs. Probably the license costs too much so not much left to create a good MMO out of it.

The biggest issue with this game was that the cash shop was glaringly pay-to-win. When I tried out the game,

-Healing potions could only be bought in the cash shop. Admittedly, they are somewhat useless as they can't be used during combat and you regain HP quickly.

-Some heroes could only be bought with real money. The ones that could be bought with cash were incredibly expensive and required you to play around 800-1000 games to unlock one if you didn't want to spend money.

-Character masteries could only be used if you bought the heroes. Think "talent trees". Naturally, this provided a huge disadvantage for anyone who was playing heroes in the free rotation (which did not allow you to use the masteries). Mastery points could also be bought in the Cash Shop.

-Balancing. Any team with a healer pretty much won the game. Healers were tough to take down, and you are guaranteed dominate over any team composed of just any hero in the (gasp!) free rotation. A simple fix for this would have been to have a healer always available in the free rotation, but the devs did not like that idea and just kept it random. The Masteries also fall in this category, as free players are easily dominated by characters with masteries.

All in all, this game has been the most glaring example of "pay to win" that I have ever encountered in any Free to Play MMO due to the fact that the game is balanced toward the paying customers. T'is sad too, since the game would have been fun to play if they fixed their issues but instead found the game was an exercise of "how long until you get so frustrated you will crack and throw us your money".

That was one of the reasons I never checked WoH out indeed. Other reason is that i'm not a real MOBA player, but if WAR (or Mythic for that matter) was good enough, I might have given WoH a chance...

Oh I tried it specifically because of WAR. So I guess there was two sides to that coin. Small population of people who liked WAR who were willing to try it, and people who didn't want to touch it because of the fact that it came from the same place.

Gaarawarr, for anyone who doesn't remember him, has been blogging WAR since launch and now runs the Wrath of Heroes community site He is putting together an interview he had with the developers about the closing. He has said they have a bunch of heroes they are going to release before the game closes in a month. It sounds like the developers are handling the closure in a kind manner.

I don't play Warhammer Online anymore and haven't for a while. However, I only just uninstalled the game a couple of months ago and still think about it regularly. It has flaws but my reason for leaving was the smaller develpoment team that meant slower content releases. It is still my fondest PvP experience, especially later into its life when huge battles could be handled by the game. It is odd because when I play GW2, mechanically it seems like it should be more fun. However, I don't do WvWvW much because it just makes me think about WAR.

Sorry to those who played Wrath of Heroes and are losing something they value. I thought I read that you all will be getting a free month of WAR. I encourage you to try it out if you haven't. They are very similar.
