just curious, anyone going to be moving to this game when it finally comes out? Which side? They are getting much closer to open beta for those of you who pre-ordered the CE.

If they run WAR like they did DAoC, then you can play multiple characters and races, but only one faction. They haven't said anything in beta about it that can be released to public yet.

I'm certainly going to, especially after playing at Origins. The game is going to be fantastic. I just need to upgrade my PC.

Will 100% be playing Light Side, most probably a RunePriest or a White Lion.

I should have mentioned that you can play different factions, just not on the same server. I have a pre-order in for it, but it is a game you can't run through solo. It is very RvR/PvP intensive. I may cancel my pre-order depending on my guild situation come release Smile

I played it at the penny arcade convention and thought....

Hmm, this would have been cool if it had come out before wow. Alas, it is pretty much a wow clone.

"Here is to hoping the pvp parts work out, so that they can differentiate themselves."

Still can't help but think it is economic suicide to go up against wow.

Well if it happens Matt you can call yourself a gaming prophet. Smile

I actually signed up for the newletter and stuff only to be left out of the Beta anyways. Yet getting all of their advertising spam. Bad move on their part because I am hooked on Eve and there is no way I will get into more than one massive online player game.

I think EVE is pretty slick, offers a very different view on the mmo thing.

Does anyone really think, that with the release of the new wow expansion, that warhammer online (for all our love of the hobby) really stands a chance?

Getting into an mmo and having it die blows really bad (with the time and money investment) so i hope that it lives for you guys.

so the only reason I will probably not get it is due to it costing monthly(last I heard never even heard a cost)

Dude you can't go two minutes without complaining about not having money, or you can't do it because of money.

As for the game I play WoW but it does not feel like WoW at all. It has its own feel to it. Sure its gonna have a lot of similarities as WoW but it is definitely its own beast.

dunno about that JT, I played wow to 70 twice and from the 3-4 hours of Warhammer that I played it felt VERY VERY like wow.

Maybe the PvP stuff can separate it from WoW... we'll see.

I dunno. Whenever I get online time its CoD4 and now MGS4.

I cannot see myself leaving those as my time is limited.

yeah, a very different kind of experience.

I am so much better for leaving mmo's behind. You can kiss goodbye to any freetime if you want to actually move ahead in an mmo.

Funny JT but I dont seem to have mentioned that for a month or 2. I have no problem paying for games(I spend plenty on table top ones) but I am just not willing to pay for a online game when I can play a free one that is almost if not as good as the one that costs montly or play a game like warhammer which I can get a lot more out of and have something for it(the models I pay for).

I am in the beta and I have a lvl 70 in WoW and several other toons 50 and above on several servers. All games are simular. When WoW came out, they said it was just Like EQ, EQ was a lot like UO, etc.. It is fantasy, it is hard to avoid simularities. That said, I will most likely cancel my pre-order only because I am not big on PvP. I will admit, WAR is doing it better than any other game I ever played, (including their first game DAoC).
In one sense, they are bringing versatility to MMO characters that hasn't been seen, but most of it is in the background so most people won't notice it. The Hardcore PvP/RvR'rs will though. Just like WoW, you can go up any of 3 trees and you get race specific abilities. Unlike WoW, you can gain abilities through RvR and they added in slotted tactics. suffice it to say that if you like PvP, this game is a must, if you don't, play something else.

That is funny.... and true too. Getting less done on everything with Eve taking up time now. But I suspected that going in.

As a big fan of WFB getting into their online game would have been at least worth a try. Was liking the mindset and knowing the fluff would have made the transition less complicated.

Pretty much what I got from playing the game.
