 Could you link the blog? I can't see how they could possibly make 3 factions without adding any new races.

Waiting for: Archeage, Darkfall 2.0, and Planetside 2.

 I think i jsut had a mild cardiac assault.

 

 Is the time of restoration upon this game? F2P would do good for this game. Hope it happens at at somepoint this year. Even if they don't wantto admit it. F2P would make them competetive again.

It is best for the industry the MMO throne remains an dusty empty seat never to be filled.

So what was the big news? I'm guessing it wasn't F2P since I can't find anything about that on the website..

Free to play would make this game a success .

 These predictions are meaningless, so don't go around patting yourself on the back.  I'd bet you don't remember all the ones you "predicted" that haven't come true.

Only 10 days ago, and the announcement was that they will be annoucing something.

 

Stay in your cave forever please.

Announcement about WAR will come in late August: WAR Herald

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kai Schober (Community Manager)

I hope you'll understand when you see the announcement and the way it's done. Sometimes things need a certain setting.

I don't like the delay neither and I wish we had been able to talk about it the day after the blogger's visited us (which was the initial idea). Don't expect too much, though. It might not be interesting for you.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
As for what I think, I highly doubt the announcement will have anything to do with WAR going F2P. IF anything, like others on the forums have suggested, it will probably be about a new payment plan, possibly one linked with TOR. Perhaps an RVR pack as well. It won't be anything big though with his, "Don't expect too much, though. It might not be interesting for you." Unless it's some sort of joke to control hype. I see no point in waiting though. Just give us an appetizer now, and save the meat n 'taters for gamescon.

Gamesday Announcements:

 

1. They will be bringing back fortress for some of you that don't know what it is. It's the last zone you have to cross to get into city while fighting the enemy faction and a Lord npc guarding it. If there are people guarding the fortress some will be chosen and buffed into a giant champion like during city battles.

2. They will be adding capture the flag in RvR. What does that mean? each zone will have a reliq/flag a player will take it from the enemy fortress and bring it back to theirs. The reward will most likely be RP or some renown boost for everybody in their t4 faction zones.

3. There will be a T7 armor for vanity purpose. It does not give stats but you can use it as an alternate appearance.
(Hint: It looks ugly as crap, they showed the Shaman, Chosen, and BW)

4. They will add another player monster races in the game like skaven.

5. Range DPS will get more CC

This is just about the next two upcoming patches, whatever is under the NDA is still set for the end of August.

I would spend big bucks on store items if they would just go F2P, the way I did with LOTRO and AoC...

Feels weird saying F2P in the same sentence with "big bucks"...LOL

The problem is that LOTRO works fine as freemium because it is a PvE game.

AoC is really a PvE game as well even if it have PvP. If WAR went F2P or Freemium it would become a pay2win game and it just wouldn't work out.

As I see it is the only good way to save WAR to telease a expansion and at the same time change it into B2P with a itemshop selling fluff and possibly some XP pots. But that would cost money that I think EA wont put into the game.

WAR as F2P or freemium would be a bigger disaster than it is a P2P.

The simple free to play is a massive xp boost. If they boosted all forms of xp for pay accounts I'd pay to come back, and every time i rolled a new toon pay for that toon's leveling. 50-100% would get my money, I remember liking this game because of collision detection, and I wanted to go back to it, but read its a dead game on these forums and that deterred me from a pvp game. as far as leveling goes, if i remember correctly they'd still get a lot of money outta me because i'd be paying for all those levels you get from pvp when you hit level 40. i think i remember it being like 80 ranks or levels that were essentially pvp levels. i could be totally wrong though.

just read your post in detail and saw you mention xp pots. thats okay, but it doesn't cover the hours when no ones on and i wanna just solo level, since group xp and pvp xp was way faster in that game if i remember. i'd always feel like i can't consume one because its just gonna be a waste of money when i'm trying to level solo. paying upfront for the service always feels more comfortable.

also, you can sell stuff that'd make crafting easier in some way? i remember there being time durations to some of the crafting features (planting seeds i think?), anything that doesn't directly affect pvp is probably safe to boost with player cash.

AoC pvp is kinda fucked I hear because they made it a buy2win game with the selling of the highest ranked pvp gear.

The game isn't nearly as dead as people like to think it is. T4 and T1 pretty much have fighting 90% of the time on US servers, and T2 and T3 have them about 50% of the time. Mostly during afternoon/evening/weekends for t2/t3. But it's still there.

You had me toying with the notion that I should come back, but then as I re-read 't4 and t1 pretty much having fighting 90% of the time' I realised that could include just the battleground pvp and not the outdoor pvp that made for a lotta fun. If that wasn't what you meant, but you were actually talking about keep siege that'd be a different story.

Nah he means open RvR too. T1 oRvR is tedious tbh and ends up (during peak time) simply being a warband or two on each side just fighting at the entrance to one anothers warcamps. T4 usually has a good few warbands full of people fighting across and locking the various zones in order to seige the opposite sides city + plenty of Scenarios (BG's) popping. T2 & 3 is just plain open RvR but for most of the day only consists of capping empty zones or against very little resistance.

Even though WAR may not go F2P there maybe some link in when Bioware/EA launch their Star Wars game.

Perhaps along the lines of - pay $10 for Starwars and $12 for StarWars and WAR. Of course I am speculating, but recently we had to change our WAR account details to a more generic Bioware type account, hence my speculation.

 

With regards to Population in T2 and T3, I have many alts at this level of the game and regularly find RvR action in thenm with up to 40 vs 40, which is more then enough to enjoy the game.
