Next Generation of Online Gaming

I just can't stop playing online games. I'm not addicted. I don't even play 5 hours daily. It's just that my work isn't going so good that I don't have free time. Give me millions of dollars and I quit playing. Till then I will try to have fun in MMOs

The Warhammer Online Experience Day 1

the DVD #1 couldn’t be read by my ‘PC DVD player properly. I’m wondering how the American publisher did his job.
After the installation and the activation of the account I could finally play Warhammer Online. The MMO which should last at least 3 months. If not, then the game is obviously *****. My expectations are a bit higher than average just because it’s a “pay to play” game. If you as a company ask money on a constant periode, you are competing with the A-class MMORPGs. You must give the player a reason not to stay at WoW, GW, Lineage 2 or Everquest. Most of the time it is the “new game” effect which draws many of them to the new competitors. Finally, new quests, new classes (well, not really ^^ ), new areas, etc. But seriously, how long can this last?
It is a matter of time till you did the last quest in this new game and then don’t know what to do next. Well, I’m a PvPer so that’s why I am even touching Warhammer at all.
I didn’t expect a good PVE game. Man, this is a WoW clone in so many ways that I sometimes wondered why I’m playing Warhammer Online at all. But I entered a scenario (PVP instance, very similar to WoW Battleground and the father of PVP instances Guild Wars) and I enjoyed it. Fighting against other lvl 1-10s was kinda fun. But will there be lowbies even in some months? Im lucky to join Warhammer at the relative beginning.
It’s Friday 7th. Next Thursday the new expansion of WoW is coming out.
Should I hurry before WoW wipes all servers in WH?
Even now players don’t answer when I say “hi” when I meet them on a random basis. This situation isn’t new. When I played LOTRO in the Open Beta and a trial after release, the same pattern occurred. I have no clue where this behaviour comes from.
I ended the day with lvl 2 of my nuker on the British “core” server. Core means PvE in this case. I also tried some other classes and other server types but I decided to go along with my dark elf nuker for a while.

Impression of the day:
PVE is very WoWish. PvP is amusing but I want more than just PVP instancing. I want real RvR. Well, im just not high enough. So let’s lvl a bit more before judging the entire PVP of this game.
