Mythic: Why you should play WAR instead of WoW

Thursday, 18th September 2008 20:42 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Undecided? Mythic boss Mark Jacobs isn’t. Warhammer Online has now launched and he reckons World of Warcraft players should try it. Here’s why, courtesy of MTV:

If you’re looking for the best RvR [Realm vs. Realm] in any online game, you come to “Warhammer.” This is what we do well. This is the most core reason to play our game. If you’re looking for the latest and greatest RvR of any MMO, you come to play our game.

Our number-one focus is RvR, but we have spent so much time and resources on PvE [Player vs. Environment]. We’ve put so many things in there, that if you’re a casual player you should come here. One of the things that certain games have done — and we won’t mention names — is that they’re trying to go back to an old school, we-want-people-to-work-harder-to-level [style of gameplay] and make it less fun. No, we’re not going to do that. We want you to have fun in our game, and we want you to feel like you can accomplish something. You won’t come in and go, “If I can’t get four hours in straight, I’m going to feel awful.”

There’s more reasoning through there. Loads more. Mark can talk. We’re installing WAR right now. Are you?

    Significant problems in Europe. A lot of services offline, people can’t log on, massive queues for servers for those that manage to even register…

    Only problem I had was that I’d registered for a beta in May 07 and couldn’t remember what password I had for the account and all the account management stuff seemed to be disabled. So I just registered a completely new account and joined a low pop server and I away I went. Took bloody ages to download the patches, mind you.
