it was great other then  that 50% of the guild picked a se server and are set on it and the others have picked a CE server and won't change. bastards!

To the OP, I am a HUGE fan of TF2 and MMO's, so I'm pretty surprised that you drew such a unique comparison betweent the two games, but then again I think it's pretty smart :)

Out of curiosity, when you compare it to TF2, do you mean you compare it not only to the specialisations of each class of TF2, but also in perhaps... roleplaying? I know that sounds strange, but remember the emotes and taunts that each class has in TF2, I'm hoping that perhaps at least one MMO out there (hopefully WO:AOR) has decided to perhaps that same dynamic to the game.

Very good game and the best part about it that it is only going to get better over time.

Awesome loads of fun.

Cancelled my WoW account and bought a new PC the day before yesterday so my missus can play alongside... A bit skeptically at first she tried out the game at my machine where I got it installed and after the first RvR scenario (at level 4) with her Bright Wizard she got pretty much incoherent and refused to budge from my PC until they shut down the OB servers... "Look, look! I exploded again!!" was pretty much all I could get out of her (she is a natural redhead and it might have something to do with it.)

I really hope we'll manage to DL her client before the headstart goes live else I won't get to play much.

So far it looks like the real deal. For me this is WoW 2.0 - everything that I hoped for from that game but which never materialized due to cretin EQ-school devs is here. You actually have FUN most of the time in WAR, rather than 20% fun and 80% grind-to-earn-the-right-to-eventually-have-fun we've become used to in WoW and similar games.

It just felt so... random.   If i must describe my experience with warhammer in one word it would be:  annoying.

My verdict is the same thing that me and my little brother said to each other int he moments before open beta ended in game. This is possibly the best mmorpg I have ever played and I see myself playing this one for many years to come.

Yes, only time will tell, indeed. But I can guarantee you that you are one of the posters who always find something negative in each mmorg - especially Darkfall and Fallen Earth after you give it a try ;] I don't like people like you.

I couldn't have that on my conscience badmouthing a game. I always enjoy a game that I find the most pros against cons.. The cons itself can be merely fixed, so it's a win-win situation, you know? Did it make you feel cool badmouthing a game that developers have invested their time, their lives, their money, their creativity, their humor into these games and people like you have to say something moronic about it? Why can't you appreciate games? If you find something wrong with it; send a note to a bug report or feedback. Simple, no? If you wanted to write a review on this game then do it in proper grammar, mannerism and maturity.


You know what? I find you in one word too: Annoying.

Pretty much feel the same as the OP. I hated PvP in WoW, didn't even really like it in GW and I play Counter Strike against bots, but like TF2 there is just something about the PvP that makes it so much fun I find myself instantly queuing for another scenario as soon as I log in / finish the previous one.


I'm even planning on getting up at 3am... stupid living in Australia; although Mythic has given us real local servers (unlike some other company), so I suppose I can forgive and will soon forget.

Agree with WAR as a casual gamer-friendly mmo, since there's PvP from the get-go and you can earn EXP in a lotta ways...

WAR FRICKEN PWNS!

Enjoyed most of it and will be playing, was wishing PvE was more challenging, pulling one at a time with no trains was not that much fun.

Trust me, it gets more challenging as you level up.. most mobs are very close to eachother for aggro. Ack!

Quite easy for tanks, but not for bright wizard/sorceress, haha. (Just speaking from experience pfft)

My first impression after playing the game was "well I guess graphics are not the best but still ok. Game play is a seems a little boring but  I will still give it a chance since it's OB" After realising that I have spent close to 6hrs playing this game I laughed at my self and went to sleep. the next day I was surprised that I had the urge to play WAR again and this time I tried the RvR/PVP and loved every moment of it (note: I hated any kind of PvP before, used to be a strictly PvE player).

After all I have said, I still feel like WAR is lacking something, but I'll still be playing the game.

I bagged it initially, but I enjoyed the beta, so I plan to play it casual for a couple hours a day.  I also found PvE a bit on the easy side, with little challenge other than some PQ boss mobs, but thats ok. I got my DE Sorc to 10 and Marauder to 13.  I enjoyed my DE Sorc more than Marauder because the combat seemed more varied, more options at your disposal, and you had to think faster. Then I picked up the black orc i created originally, and that was fun too, the idea of  "builders" is very much like combo's in AoC, and I enjoy those mechanics, plus the damn Black Orc is tough as nails.

So i think ive given away my 3 classes for Destruction havent I? :p

When it comes to order, im not sure what to roll with, the class choices are a bit uninspired for me.

Ill probably pick up a Bright Wizard, cause i love magic classes, High Elf, will likely be White Lion or Shadow Warrior, Dorf will be engineer.

3 and 3. 3 on 1 server, 3 on the other. Talking the two Oceania servers.

Sounds like a plan to me.

See u in game

Actually I find you annoying.  Having a go at someone because ... *gasp*...  he posted his opinion on a message board.  Ironically you can't find the conscience badmouthing a game, but you have no problem badmouthing a person who dislikes a game you enjoy.

all these people complaing about PVE and havnt got their toon past 20.........................

name a game at lvl 5-10 that you had super awsome PVE content/dungeons. 

nothing more really needs to be said about those people. Also iam guessing most of you havn't even checked out the 15+ dungeon or even tried to check the pve content out.  Just blindly posting what you have seen at lvl 1-10.
