I have played the game and it is really fun. It doesnt fit in the lore or really make sense as a story but who cares if it is fun to play.
I like MOBA's but always wanted standard MMO controls for them and this brings it. The action is fast, fun, and doesnt take a huge time commitment. So if you can put aside that there is really no story and this has nothing to do with the Warhammer universe other then having it's characters in it, then you should enjoy it.
I tried the game back before its original "release" and found it an unplayable and sad experience. I had read a lot of negativity on this board and other places, so was reluctant to try it again but was a little burned out on some of the other games I was playing and decided to give the trial a whirl.
I have to say I have found it pretty enjoyable. I find the graphics decent enough, the combat moves at a good pace. I am playing a healer and the talent trees are awesome and I find myself truly excited when i get new spells. I am a big fan of the study system and the library is a pretty awesome idea and has helped me on numerous quests and tracking down crafting items. I have found a few bugs here and there but nothing major. I went ahead and bought the game after a couple hours and have not been disappointed, I even talked a friend to give the trial a whirl and he soon bought it.
The population isn't great but I had no trouble getting groups to kill named bosses. My friend and I found a group of people in a guild and ran a couple instances, 1 was a lot of fun and the other seemed bugged on the final boss, he just wouldn't die and killed everyone that targeted him almost instantly but I understand these things happen in new games. My friend and I got invited to this guild and there are always people on and very helpful.
All and all I am having fun in this game and my friend and I are trying to get as many people we know in the game as possible. I think with a bigger community this could be a really great game. I know some people are big on bashing the dev team and mr. smart, and I can admit from his posts he comes off as abrasive and slightly douche-ish, but from what I saw in beta to now I have faith they will only improve the game. If you haven't tried it, look past the hype and give it a try it is a fun game. You just may like it. Just my 2 cents.
