While playing my 14 free days in Warhammer Online I notice something.  Darkfall Unholy Wars has a bigger population than Warhammer Online.  That gives me high hopes for Darkfall but makes me sad for WAR.  I do like WAR still and hope EA doesn't shut you down.  Maybe they will make the game F2P to save it?

Do you REALLY believe the words that you are writting?

They have NO PR, let alone full time devs. Who would do f2p for them? Closet gobboz?

It's so sad, the situation now and I'm not talking about population on our 2 remaining servers. But if this silence from EA Mythic goes on I fear for the future of Warhammer Online.

They have recouped the investment made on WAR so at this point they couldn't give a damn.

WAR's future is already be a vegetable until it no longer supports itself.

I don't think they even have the dev manpower to turn it f2p.

They don't have. And Nid here could confirm that.

They have what? Three devs total? And several more(not more than five, don't get your hopes up!) that bounce between all the Mythic games(UO, DAoC, WAR).

Such a shame for such a franchise to get the devs of this "magnitude"(or the lack there of)...

Yeah.

It doesn't look like there's any kind of manpower left for Warhammer Online. No 2nd part of the live event and no info since months about the patch 1.4.9 that was nearly finished back in those days. That patch should have "shortly" followed the 1.4.8 Currency patch that went live 9 months ago.

With zero communication since months my guess is that everything concerning War has been put on hold for quite some time now, till ...

Even Fozee, lead moderator is being kept in the dark, no contacts anymore with any staff for a very long time now.

It's a pain in the arse but nothing we can do, or now even hope, about it.

After playing a week and reading about WAR it feels like a sinking ship.  WAR doesn't deserve this type of death.  I wonder when the franchise contract is up.  I bet it will shut down then (usually 2 year contracts).

I'll be polite:

WAR came in 2008. Today is year 2013. I somehow doubt that license lasted(or will last for another) two years.

It's not such a loss to the MMOland(it was an average MMO set in awesome IP). It IS a HUGE loss to us WHF fans tho. When and, more importantly, if we will have another WHF RPG is a BIIIIIG mystery...

It's going to be a big loss for us, the remaining playerbase, as there's nothing else for us to play.

We only have 1 game and even that is going to be taken away from us. And because we're linked to that fucking Warhammer IP, you have no idea Gorwe how much I hate it to be linked to the Warhammer Fantasy IP, we won't be able to have a private server up and running or the code made available to someone willing to keep a private server up.

Nid:

You can't hate it being tied to Warhammer more than I hate Warhammer being represented by...this. It's one thing to waste beautiful Diablo lore on ARPG or SW lore on Tor, but this...this is a new one(to quote Ezrael)!

And do you think we have any other option(especially when it comes to RPGs)? I've even reconsidered subbing because I don't like other "settings"(Save the Conan/LoTR/TES) even a fraction as I love Warhammer. PvE+RvR exploits to keep in shape->RvR endgame(as it should be). But if I do that, I am financing the guys that failed...scratch that. I'd prolly be using Amazon anyhow. Therefore financing some retailer and not Mythic.

In short: we are in a very similar predicament, you and I.
