    Default Warhammer Online

    Hello. I was just wondering how many people play WH online out there?

    I know its not anywhere near as good as Darkfall sounds, but it has a few factors that make it better than WoW, for example keep raids and open PVP. Anyway would just like to see who plays it out there.

    Nah its okay, its fun to play with some friends. I am definately moving to Darkfall, but WH is just a temporary solution as well as medieval 2 total war

    Try the Stainless Steel mod for METW2 (you need the expansion for it though)

    Ughh I keep trying to like Warhammer and get so bored/sick of bullshit before I ever even get to level 20 on any class.

    I think the server crashes at 90%+ Fortress Raids (An essential part to getting to city sieges) are one of the big things that ruined it for me, knowing that even if I got to endgame, it is unplayable.

    I wouldn't waste your time or money on that game, was a major dissapointment for me and my friends.

    Yep, it's just a laggy, unstable bowl of Age of Rangedattacking.

    So true. 1v1 is completely favored by melee. Scenarios are hit or miss. And then Orvr battles are completely favored by range. Its so dumb lol.

    Glad I have other, more fun games to tide me over until Darkfall. I highly recommend any of the following games if you are bored and sick of Warhammer while you wait:

    Fallout 3 (Don't read any strategy guides, don't try to powergame it, just play it the way it is and the character you would want, and it is a blast)

    The Orange Box (Five Games, and all 5 of them were rated 8/10 or better by basically all major review companies)

    ^--Team Fortress 2 is included, and is one of the most fun, interested, and long lasting pvp games I have ever played, and still enjoy playing a year later.

    Dead Space (Only about 12 hours long from start to finish, but a very well made, and scary as hell, game.)

    Spore (Simple but endless I would say. If you enjoy creating things and appreciate the finer details and freedom to make any alien race/buildings/vehicles you want, you will love this game. If that is not your thing you won't really get your money out of this game.)

    Its not even everyone being in T4. On (and I am not exaggerating) 80%+ of the servers, they are unplayable.

    Mythic is refusing to merge servers, because in an early post they said "MMO companies that merge servers are bound to fail".

    They have the option to merge the extra 25 or so servers that no one plays on, and make there game have a good solid 100-200k playerbase. Or, they can continue doing what they are doing, I.E. releasing "new" classes that they didn't finish in time for release, and let the population continue to decline as most servers can't even manage 12 people on each side in the same bracket to do a friggin scenario at this point.

    So basically, they are failing harder than AOC?

    LOL Well done Mythic, way to raise the bar!!

    I think they had a decent number of players starting out; then the WoW expansion came out.

    Here is one of the quotes:

    Ten Ton Hammer: So no server mergers in the near future?

    Mark: Oh god no! The funniest bit was that when this stuff first started, people told us that we needed to merge servers. It was Friday. And so I'm keeping track of how many servers are mid to high population levels. I even told people on the Vault about it.

    The next day, four more servers had moved from low pop to mid pop. I just want to tell people that this will keep happening and to just be patient. We opened extra servers than we would normally, because we wanted people to have those option. We listened to our community.

    When we did our first launch with the CE and the SE, people were asking us to open a few extra servers because of large guilds or alliances. So we did. And of course people started complaining.

    But it really doesn't matter. We opened with far fewer servers than what we will need to contain all the sales that we're going to get over the next month. We know - or at least we hope - what our numbers will be, and since we have plenty of servers to handle that, I'll think we'll be just fine.


    Basically, they predicted a lot more people continuing to play. After the first few weeks they actually sold 800,000 copies of the game. Massive bugs, CTD's, unfinished game ect. ect. reduced the subscriber base to I think around 400,000 that month, and now it is under 200,000 iirc.

    They are still holding on to there previous ideas however, and refusing to merge servers. Until they do I don't see any reason why they won't continue to have a decline of players. The people playing on the "dead" servers will probably just stop playing all together, and new players who pick a "dead" server, will just get frustrated and have a bad first impression.
