Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes: Amenadresh Returns!

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,610MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Warhammer: Wrath of Heroes has been steadily gaining momentum over the past several months. We managed to catch up with Carrie Gouskos to talk about all the changes including the new map and hero that arrive next Wednesday. Keep reading!

MMORPG.com: What about the new hero? Can you spill some details on him/her/it?

Carrie Gouskos: Amenadresh the Steward was briefly available in the closed beta, and we’re very glad to see him back. He’s a Liche Priest that can both curse the opposing team and bless/heal his own. He’s one of the more interesting heroes (I think) and brings another healer-type back into the mix, which I know a lot of people have been looking forward to.

    Instead of investing in warhammer they are spinning this and trying to make some money from a cash shop.  SHAME on them.

     

    Warhammer the should have could have would have. Sad panda /sign.

    completley agree, shameful

  • FadedbombFadedbomb Aiken, SCPosts: 2,081Member

    What a shameful thing to do. Honestly, put more money into fixing Warhammer Online than this trash.

     

    What some companies won't do to save face. Simply appologize for your failure, and promise to turn the game around while at the same time putting money into it. 

     

    OR

     

    Shut it down, and start over with a new direction (ie: The way WARHAMMER should have been, and not a WoW-Driven copycat).

    5-button-spam game with little potential. Lobby design stolen 100% from League of Legends and cash shop that already starts on the opening days of beta.

    Warhammer has no future guys. There are new mmorpgs coming. Ppl wont go back, even if it goes f2p.

  • volttvoltt richmondhill, ONPosts: 269Member

    I think you guys are thinking of the mmo warhammer that was years back. This is a totally different game. Currently in beta i believe and will be f2p when it comes out.

    paul barnet went on record saying warhammer online is boring and wrath of heroes is more fun, in his own eloquent way....This is the same paul barnet that said warhammer online is amazing. what a douchebag that guy is.

  • Grotar89Grotar89 beograd, CAPosts: 343Member

    Carrie Gouskos destroyed what left of WAR I see her reward is to get to destroy another game.

    This is why TOR is losing subs as well, ppl responsible for bad design stay in company but poor coders and other guys who just did what was told to them get fired....

    EA devils !!!

    Wrath of Heroes gets rid of 'all the boring crap' of WAR

    why did they sell us boring crap in the first place?

  • IstavaanIstavaan CorkPosts: 1,350Member

    Sure but then ppl who ruined game should get cut too, not give them other projects to destroy..

  • IstavaanIstavaan CorkPosts: 1,350Member

    the fans of warhammer online were telling mythic to go with three factions way back in alpha, but mythic didn't listen because all they could think about was how can we get wow players to play our game. Now they are going with a three faction system in this f2p game...what a bloody insult.

  • IstavaanIstavaan CorkPosts: 1,350Member

    I could see paul barnet trying to sell life insurance at a funeral..what a sleazeball!

  • HEKKRAHEKKRA DelftPosts: 80Member Uncommon

    not denying that, but playing the poor coders card that people like to do is a red herring.  They would be cut if the game was successful or not.

    why did they sell us boring crap in the first place?

    The boring crap makes it an mmorpg. It's nothing more than a PvP arena game and has nothing to do with an rpg in any form other than there are some buttons to mash and people to konk on the head! It can be fun, but I would rather just do the regular Warhammer Age of Reckoning and join the endless free trial,  play up to level 10, and  then do the constant PvP there.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    Played this game. It wasn't fun and I don't think it can be fun. I like the Warhammer IP and I loved DAoC so I really was hopeful for WAR, but this crappy spinoff  just isn't "fun".

    So what exactly needs fixing in WAR?

    As far as I'm concerned... Warhammer Age of Reckoning is the greatest game that nobody plays. The game is fixed. It might have taken 2 years for them to do it but the game has been awesome for about 2 years now.

    The game tourists moved on 1 month after release... never even got a grasp as to the true nature of the game... and hardcore fans have capitulated as the population dropped on the final last 4 servers.

     

    Wrath of Heroes is not for everyone... it's not for me.

    But it's not like they can make WAR appealing to the lot that hangs around these forums so why bother?

  • NergleNergle Okemos, MIPosts: 253Member Uncommon

    I have been telling them since day one of beta that they need to take the ideas and characters here and put them in the real game. I will admit thoughgame is much more stable and team balanced than that turd of a game called Warhammer online.

    Wrath of Heros has serious issues regardless if you are upset they are not making warhammer online better. It has issues as an arena game. They only have 12 heros you can play if you own them all or rent them which is a far cry from League of Legends. The biggest issue is that the pricing is too high for people who want to pay with real money. Elite tactics bought from Ornate chests  seperate the best teams from the good teams. When playing a game in which more than one team is using good team work, the team with certain elite tactics will win.  Having to spend 200 gems on a random 1/15 chance of getting 1  of the 4 amazing elite tactics is beyond fusterating. I dont want to spend 60 dollars just to  get 5 chances at randomly geting a good elitre tactic and thats 60 dollars before you buy any heros.  They bascially made the game cost way too much time or way too much money.   You can rent heroes but they are weaker versions of owned heroes because you cant equip masteries or tactics.   They should have  operated the game where they would make less money on each person but make it up with total sales becasue the current pricing scheme is turning away new players.   The game  population has been on a solid decline for weeks.

    I cant beleive a compagnie like this wasting time in that kind of crap. Lemon price of the year!

    EA can't even make a proper MOBA, no wonder they having so much trouble with MMOs.

    Installed game...played  a few matches.  Uninstalled game. Should of put more money into WAR.

    Steadily gaining momentum? No, far from it in fact.

    It has been steadily losing any momentum it had due to the development staff ignoring direct player feedback, suggestions and concerns. They implement changes that are detrimental to the game as a whole, refuse to bring back specific heroes that are requested time and time again, and don't even get me started on the elite traits fiasco.

    The game has one of the smallest communities ever, and it degrades further with each passing day.

    I was a supporter since day one, but after the last few months I refuse to support this train wreck any further.
