Warhammer Online - Impressions anyone?

A couple of mates of mine have really started to show a strong interest in this one.

Has anyone here managed to try out the Beta?

Thoughts? Impressions? Anyone planning on jumping on board?

After the whole "Age of Conan" debacle, I'm feeling a bit reluctant to jump back into another MMO...

After spending over a $100 on a game I got only a little over a month of play on...

Yeah... I am a little reluctant.

@hmboy: Err... anything more to add?

Its like wow, but less grind.

More interaction with people is pushed your way, and it works.

You could get max level with just PVE or PVP if you want either way. (or mix it up for the fastest route).

Max level is 40, ive made 3 10's and an 8. (in beta)

I like it.

Of course that has nothing what so ever to do with WoW stealing all its looks from Warhammer in the first place...

Anyone, anyone interested in forming an "Atomic" warhammer clan?

I know generally we never appear to get the numbers, but I was curious.

Azawrath? You out there buddy?

If you're not planning on jumping in, you could always send the key my way ;)

I'd love to get an impression of the game before I had over my hard earned cash.

played the beta for a while, loved it. Great game so far, the RVR is awesome.

recommend it... the open beta is starting on the 7th an cant wait to get back into it.

i am also forming a guild once it goes live with a couple of other atomicans, your welcome to come join us. akthough its not an atomic guild per say.

if u missed out on getting into the beta for a test run, shame, dont think there will be trials for a while.

This game is just fun. theres no real grind, the pvp is great, scenarios u can join anywhere and they drop u back to where u where so theres always stuff to do an see.

not done any keep takes or any of the end game rvr soc ant comment on that.

but ya, and i am getting a ping of 24 to the oceanic server :P

got to love that

wouldnt rate the graphics so much just yet, all the options where not included for the beta, there are alot more options put intot he last patch.

i have also read since CB finished that changing from med to high did nothing, and that maybe the high end graphics where not included in the beta....

but i can't vouch for it...

still WoW is a rip off Warhammer anyway so .....

Less grind seems to be a term thrown out about every new MMO out there



then you play and :O the same grind....well less than WoW which i guess is a good thing.

And to jump on the bandwagon... Warcraft is a ripoff of Warhammer, with less hammers.

true enough, but with a less focus on gear and a crafting system wit no lvl system it seems to make the pvp - rvr more about class play than uber gear, so farming raids for a 1 in 12 shot at 1 peice of uber armour is not an issue, so u dont have to grind for gearas u would have in other mmo's

the renown gear system rewards for rvr and this is the basis of the game.... so u get rewarded for playing..... not farming say the rift in lotro.

I'm looking for a guild to join. Got myself the pre-order and was able to nab a closed beta key :)

Can't wait till it officially starts off.

Preview Weekend Plus went up not long ago and after a quick go I'm having fun. The UI seems a little overwhelming at first but it probably didn't help that I just charged in, turned off all the help popups and went looking for PvP as soon as I loaded up... I'll probably need to sit down and move everything around but that can wait till morning, a couple of quick hours sleep and back into it.

I have played about 2 days worth of the Beta (Work has kept me away from home or I would have played more)

As a coincidence I also played WoW for the first time last week.

If I had the time I think I would subscribe to WAR over WoW just because the WAR story appeals to me a bit more.

I think WAR is the sort of game that could be quite enjoyable if you take the time to follow the story and read all the "Tome unlocks".

The combat was a little bit "Meh" I thought - then again I do appreciate the difficulty of making combat work in MMOs.

The Public Quest idea was also good I thought.

Crafting apparently can be quite complex in WAR - that's a plus if true and if it works?

Also, I am an RvR player at heart.

My big concern is that there does not really appear to be a proper side balance mechanism in place (yes, I know about side caps and IMHO that probably wont work).
So the potential for zerging could spoil a game with real potential?
