Why?  While I understand the sentiment of wanting a Warhammer MMO, this one was just a travesty.  I was never more excited for any game, ever than WAR.  It needs to be completely scrapped and overhauled, maybe only taking the character models of the Dwarves and Orks as they were simply amazing.

 

Otherwise, it would be in the same position as before; broken, beaten down and forgotten.  Needs to be someone other than EA publishing and other than Mythic (sadly.)

I want another Warhammer mmorpg and I want a Warhammer RPG even more, but...

WAR??? Really? He was sick and dying ever since he emerged. Let him rest in peace. He deserves at least as much after all that EA and, especially, Mythic did to him.

Just goes to show you, how different our tastes are.

WAR to me is the worst AAA MMORPG I've played period.

WARHAMMER ONLINE, BEST MMO EVER BY FAR.

It made carebears pvp, and pvpers actually care (for their realm, etc). No other game has accomplished that, to my knowledge, ever (maybe DAoC did as well?)

Give it a few years here and it will be right in there with SWG as the best game ever made.

No worries... you just need to convince Games-Workshop to re-negotiate the license with EA, Convince EA it is worth the money and then have them shift devs away form other projects to get it up and running again.

 

To be honest the game would need so much work that it would rival Final Fantasy. ARR.

 

To sum it up... Not very much chance of it.

I would like WAR if the brought it back in the essence of the table top.

 

Every race for itself, loose alliances brokered in some special way throughout the game along Good/Neutral/Evil lines. Keep things three faction, but let the factions shift through this alliance brokerage system.

Example. Dwarves have the best mines in games, getting hammered by green skins and chaos. Faction wide 48 hour poll the Dwarves to ask Empire for a brief alliance (set up in weekly terms.) You help us defeat them, you have access to our mines, tech for defense/offense etc. You earn prestige with Dwarves for fighting with them during battle, allowing you to buy special items (eventually)

 

Might hurt when one race has a drastic lack of players, but that's where the alliance system would step in. Good and Neutral can help each other, Neutral and Evil can help each other. Good and good, Neutral and Neutral, Evil... you get the idea. Make the neutral guys a group of vagabonds or mixed races from both good and evil as well as some of the more grey armies from WAR.

 

Add more races, expand racial zones, make everything contestable - beyond a starting area.

WAR was a really good game at heart, it didn't really need additions or changes, they only needed to tune and fix what was already there.  They never got a solid grip on class balance and the servers couldn't handle high density RvR.  I remember my realm spent the entire day pushing into the enemy capital, crashing the server 3-4 times along the way.  We finally pushed into the city in the wee hours of the night to find that the content there was unfinished, presumably because they didn't anticipate anyone getting there that fast , so finishing that content was a low priority.

i thought this game had the perfect balance of pvp and pve. I usually don't pvp in MMO's but in Warhammer i did because it was actually fun and noone was overpowered. At least in the early to mid levels. public quests were great fun because it was new(ish). I'd definitely play Warhammer Online again if they released as it was with some improvements. However... i didn't have anything if at all to complain about Warhammer except for the lack of players in midgame. EA needs to die and go away. They kill their own games. I still like Mythic though. They should never have signed on with EA to publish their games at all. Every non sports game by EA has died with the exception of Dead Space games.

If you had played DAOC, then you would understand why WAR was pretty much a total disappointment to some of us.

No game let me down more, was so expecting DAOC 2, and instead got something so very diffrent.

Wasn't necessarily bad, as many like you enjoyed it, but certainly wasn't what I was looking for.

I was involved with WAR since early beta. The game ran mostly on CEO arrogance more then skilled developers and that's why it ended up being a low quality WoW clone. These games deserve a fiery death not a nostalgic resurrection.

Is someone building an emulator for WAR?

I know EQ, SWG, has emulators, heck they are even working on a Vanguard emulator.

I liked the core of WAR. I think its biggest stumbling block was that it's version of alternate advancement depended on what everyone in the area was doing. Once that initial rush of new MMO subscribers died down, so did alternate advancement. This did nothing to help incentivize people into staying. Add to that there was quite a bit left undone at launch and development was practically abandoned roughly a year later and you get a disaster.

I am uncertain why the people wanting WAR back (not just a Warhammer themed MMO) take issue with Rift. A lot of the team that developed WAR also developed Rift and implemented some of the better ideas from WAR into Rift.
