I'd rather think it was the game shaped out the players than the player adapt to the game. I only playing on Orders because the Chaos looks terrible, at least for myself. Just like WOW, I don't want to play undead rogue because they can't even run properly, and it affects my RL somehow. Therefore, I would not want to try again. There is nothing to talk about because it is just like food, you have your favorite and I have mine.
Gosh, where to start... well okay you choose order, no need to have a phylosofical discussion about how the walking affect your real life...
Warhammer is not actually one on one PVP game because it is designed for group PVP (GPVP), because the class balance is not based on each, therefore, you may seen high level is not necessary able to kill a low level, because no matter what class you chosen, all skills are nearly the same. The game is heavily based on Armors and Weapons which you will get better armors/weapons through GPVP or Capturing Battle Objectives in a conflict zone to earn yourself with the renown point to increase your stats so this is very important enhancements. And level will enhanced your skills either mostly are damaging or healing. A high level without renown point means your performance are much lower because your stats are lower too.
I wouldnt say realm rank is that important, but high lvl is more important, like a lvl 31 killing a lvl 21 in a scenario even when the lvl 21 is boosted to 28, will happen 100% of the time. But a lvl 21 with 21rr has no chance against his mirror lvl 31 with rr5 or 6... And no, you dont get loot from battle objectives, from keeps maybe, but not from BO.
I don't like to play any PVE contents because the core of the game is GPVP or CBO (capturing battle objectives in conflict zone), I think PVE contents only help yourself to make gold or unlock certain quest. I can't see it will help you performing better since I can't see the difference between killing 1,000 certain mob and if you killed 10,000 mobs. I can't see the difference if you completed or not complete the Public Quest. In LOTRO, you need to kill hundreds of certain mob to gain enhancements and title but not in Warhammer, you may gain a title just like a trophy to decorate your armors without any real value. So the grind in Warhammer is mainly for gold or a slim chance to get rare armors/weapons. However, if the quest have chance to drop rare armors, you can be sure that it is similar to a Raid size in LOTRO, and people still can roll the thing they already have and it is quite rare to gain something you really needed. The PVE contents are very poor and it is not able to compete with other PVE mmo.
In fact questing is one of the fastest way to lvl in the game (if u dont mind not getting any realm rank). There is no grind for gold as gold is meaningless in WAR, gear yes, gold no. And to do the PVE set parts quests u just need 2 or 3 players... is that the raid size of LOTRO? or maybe you are talking about the public quests, well the bags can be given to somebody else with master loot, and in 1.3 anybody will be able to pass the bag. No comment on the last sentence...
My experiences on EU Core server, especially on Order side is most people like to do PVP or GPVP. And they are enjoy soloing. Soloing in a group. Because the game provides 9 characters, therefore it is so easy to forming your own guild. And the game keeps educating players in loading screen that if you need a party just join a open warband, and you can leave or join without any reason. This is the playing style Mythic expect everyone to have. So we all playing with our own style. Not all healers want to heal you because they prefer to play for themselves than make you play better. The most terrible thing is playing the wizard, when you deal lets said 300 damages, you have very high chance to hurt yourself with 384 damages up to 540 damages, so the wizard always killed himself. Without healing, you won't be able to use your skills 5 times.
Soloing in a group? the game provides 9 character so it's easy to form your own guild.... those 2 sentences dont even make sense... You know, if you join a guild with players, well you wont have to join PUGs... I can guarantee that all healers heal, since there is a huge RP reward from healing, maybe they dont heal you, because you are out of range or suicidal...
Wow just wow, you are the first person to even complain about playing the Bright Wizard... God forbids...
I have played healer in most mmorpgs, and I also playing healer in Warhammer, all my skills are for healings, and I only heal but then when I play other class, I barely to see other healer so generously to heal people. I found out many healers are trying to deal damaging than healing or they just don't want to heal. When there was someone chased by a destruction, I usually will joined but then the Order just run away. And many times, when I engaged with a destruction, the Order just run by without help. And one time, I was grinding gold in a public quest, I was high level, there were some Order just asked me to leave because I also have the chance to roll. This also explains why Destruction is dominant on our server just because the player on Order are solo player in a group. And now, when I playing healer, I do my best not heal anyone or ressurect any dead. There were many times, a healer stood on my corpse without ressurection. Sorry for my honest, but I swear to God, there are so many healers they don't heal. Furthermore, the healer in Warhammer is extremely boring class and they died fast in GPVP.
Well, if you were solo grouping to grind for gold, It's no wonder that healers who were dpsing the mobs would ask you to leave (sarcasm). So you love healers in other games but hate healers in WAR, where they are exactly the same as in all other generic mmo, figures.
What about defending a keep? most people died before the real defensive comes, because they so enjoyed for dog fight, again solo in a group. Therefore, when the Destruction breaks in, there wasn't enough live people left and many people included melee all run to the roof instead of blocking on stairs. If I remembered right, I had only one time attacking a defended keep, the other times, Orders are not able to attack a well defended keep, but Orders are only capable to attack empty Keep.
So I'd say Warhammer is a big PUG game just like you go to internet cafe to play a F2P game.
I have seen reviews, and negative reviews, but non-sense reviews, that's my first time seeing.
