    Honestly the game doesn't deserve to be saved, if the developers didn't care to save it, why should I?

    Honestly I loved the IP, and to date still think the chaos chosen is the best looking character model ever put in a game. (Played like shit though, horrible class mechanics.) But those arn't enough to save what is arguably one of the most expensive mmo flops to ever occur in history.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    welcome to free enterprise witch also includes the freedom to fail spectacularly.

    So lemme get this straight, you want them to pay the licensing fee and make it F2P for a game that pretty spectacularly failed?

     

    How about we let it die so the IP can be resurrected with some more compretent handling?

    I doubt anyone would re-pick up a warhammer mmo since Sega owns it now, i know they were talking about making a total war out of it which would be cool but i love the feel of this game. i doubt anyone remembers The Chronicles of spellborn but that never got picked up and i have been waiting for a while on that too.

    Let it rest in peace!

    You DAoC heads can get your RvR fix elsewhere.
    We Warhammer fans get the possibility of a better Warhammer (MMO)RPG.

    You get what you want. We get what we want. Everyone stays happy. The cost? A meaningless game. Not a great loss tbh and we should be able to live with the consenquences of this decision.

    But if it goes f2p anywhere(Public, private or otherwise), which I highly doubt btw, I'll be back. It's not like I have a lot of Warhammer Fantasy games to choose from anyhow. That decision came out of pure necessity, not out of love, desire or anything like it. Because, sad and tragic as it may be, it still is the best Warhammer Fantasy game out there...

    Not much to save, I'm afraid. WAR was great in some ways but in the end, the bad outweighed the good.

    It was just a very incomplete and not very well designed game that also utterly failed to capture the awesomeness of one of the world's greatest fantasy IPs. I prefer to just let it rest and hope for a better Warhammer Fantasy game some time in the future.

    Not worth saving. Even a F2P conversion would not bring in enough money for them to fix all the issues it has.

    This have been a good conversation

    Fastest shutdown of an MMO in history I believe.

    I wish you luck.

    If it was SOOOOOOO great then why are they shutting the game down?  There is a reason, whether you like the reason or not it's because it has greatly underperformed to their expectations.

    let it die. There is nothing here but hope for the IP to be given (sold, rented to, w/e) better hands and maybe it can come back worthy of the name WarHammer. Seriously so much lore, so many references, so much opportunity, wasted. Let it go.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    It's dead Jim.

     

    And I'd rather sign a bring back SWG petition

    EA was expecting another EQ and wasn't willing to even let it grow.

    on topic the license has already been passed on. No petition is going to save this game.

    Having WAR go F2P would mean someone actually having to work on it, which i doubt will happen. Sorry.

    I wouldn't stress over it too much, if there are enough people like the OP, I have no doubt a private server will pop up somewhere that they can still get their fix.  I agree the game doesn't deserve to stay in the realm of the living, not with so many others out there to choose from now that are drawing attention and players, and those still to come.  It had its run, it failed, let it die with some dignity.
  • TheodwulfTheodwulf Brockton, MAMember Posts: 292 Uncommon
    Good luck ..but to tell the truth it was a bad game from day 1...poorly executed by hacks.. and driven off a cliff by knucklheads..RIP WAR...you deserve a rest..
  • RaysheRayshe London, ONMember Posts: 1,278 Uncommon
    Personally i really hope it burns into ashes. The warhammer IP is a amazing IP to work with. Hopefully it gets passes around and a much better new MMO gets released out of it. Warhammer Deserves better.

    Because i can.
    I'm Hopeful For Every Game, Until the Fan Boys Attack My Games. Then the Knives Come Out.
    Logic every gamers worst enemy.

  • nerovipus32nerovipus32 dublinMember Posts: 2,735
    No, i want this game to die so someone else can make a warhammer game.

    Signed up! I hate it when beautiful realms disappear. They need to make it f2p and make the code public so players can fix the game.

    It is

    But there is apsolutely no will on part of developers to invest in the game. They want it dead , IP reneval is just convinient excuse.
