WAR, Aion, FFXI, UO, LOTRO, AoC, CO
What do all of these games have in common??
THEY ALL EVENTUALLY IN SOME SHAPE OR FORM GOT THE AXE FROM ME!
Some lasted for a while others did not.
With some, AoC, UO, Aion, and LOTRO, I had no qualms about canceling and then uninstalling the games from my PC.
I had no attachment to them, and there was no “magic” when playing those games. They felt like soulless clones.
With FFXI—yeah I am playing FFXIV open beta now…so you know I am just playing FFXI – 2.
The final game…Warhammer Online (WAR)
I SO wanted this game to work. The Warhammer IP is such an awesome world. It is a fantasy world, but it is a brutal one. Even the pretty elves are not without their flaws. The humans are a bunch of religious fanatics. A very brutal brutal world.
WAR was also the 1st game where I got into PvP. For the most part Tier 1-3 to me at least was balanced and not too bad within Scenarios. in Open RvR combat…..made me want to bash my head in. Inbalances killed it, and people who do not know how to work as a team.
Tier 4…oh god how I wanted to love thee. By this time ugh….hated those scenarios…..CC, Roots, Knockbacks galore, and Order’s guards bugged…..Serpents Passage made me want to cry…and due to its low # requirement…it was all that ever popped it seemed on Ironforge.
Tier 4 RvR…..again beat head into wall…..poorly implemented.
Also…no PvE content…or a severe lack of….and the biggest “PVE” thing to raid your enemies capital city….severely bugged/gimped etc.
Although, recently I have heard that WAR has done some good things….Rivs even went back for a bit. I am tempted to reinstall and head back maybe.
The one thing that has me tempted to go back…..SKAVEN to be added as a mobs etc. Sorry for those Order or Chaos players. I am a servant of the horned rat at heart. Playing the table top game and having a millions rat men it seemed to swarm the enemy!!!!
Sorry Blood God or Sigmar, Skaven and the Horned Rat is where it is at. They really should add them in at some point. I know I would come back to wage WAR!
