OP  8/12/11 6:26:17 AM#1

Hi, I tried to resubscribe to WAR today - after quitting right back in the early days due to the client crashing my system.

Installed from DVD, then the patcher crashed and refused to patch. So downloaded the current client, and tried to resub, but the account page just showed a 404. So tried to start a trial account, same thing. I noticed the front page "News" section is now almost a year old, so... I'm guessing this game is dead right?

You'd think they would put something on the front page rather than just closing, but hey ho! Was a (not so) fun hour spent trying to make it work lol.

If anyone knows otherwise, please do let me know and Ill try again some other time.

Thanks.

Whatever you do, do NOT speak ill of Asheron's Call 2...

My suggestion would be to try harder. The Herald is up and has an update from just two days ago. The game is also patching just fine over here.

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

Thats very helpful, you are a star, thank you!

In a less sarcastic note, the patcher (in the EU) has an error and closes. The download client asks for an account login, which you have to create, but you get a 404 error on the website. And the website front page last update is "9/01 Return to WAR" - dated 2010.

Main Page:

http://www.warhammeronline.com/

Account Page:

https://accounts.eamythic.com/war/trial/WHFB9F-PNAIU-3XRWI-E6BRD-TRPTI

So, as your so amazingly clever and clued up - please could you tell the rest of us where YOU go to sign up and where YOU go to get your news?

Thanks

Where does it say this?

Seriously, the website is a mess of barely working code. Is the game like this? Has it not been updated in over a year?

The game has changed hands a few times and your characters houls have been transferred the first time from EU to US, and later from mythic to EA-mythic to origin (still EA).

Sounds like you missed the EU to US transfer and not sure if that is still supported though.

Thanks for the info. So we have lost all our characters? Harsh. Ah well, best to start a-new anyway I would imagine. 

So its being run by the UO team now? Thats quite good news I would imagine, as they have been keeping UO running pretty well, with expansions, for many years.

No, all your characters are still there. You may have to transfer them to a new server before you can play them if they are on a server which has been closed down though, it can be done for free via the account page.

The game is still ran by Mythic, the only thing that has changed recently on that side is the merging of the account center with EA's.
