Warhammer Online : Age of Reckoning: Capitol Cities FAQ

SzarkSzark News ManagerAnna Regina, NSPosts: 4,420Member

Mythic Entertainment has published a Capitol Cities FAQ to clarify and expand on the announcement that four of the six capitol cities would not be included with the launch of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.Introduction

WAAAGH!



We now bring you the final part of our FAQ series on this past Friday's announcement. This FAQ focuses on capital cities and what these changes mean for the campaign and you as players.



These answers are in direct response to many of the questions we've seen throughout the community and should help to address any confusion that's out there.



You can find yesterdays FAQ on Careers and PunkBuster by Clicking Here.



Thank you,

- The Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Team



How will the RvR endgame work now with only 2 capital cities?



Actually, it works out even better than we had originally designed. Our game still has complete tier 4 RvR content for all three racial themed pairings.  At the end of each of these tiers is a heavily fortified fortress for that race, which must be taken in order for one realm to claim victory for that pairing.  Imagine a giant wall cutting across the horizon line that separates you from you enemies and their fortress.  Players prepare their siege weapons, casters and archers line up on the ramparts and hill sides, as your realm clashes against the foreboding gates wielding a mighty battering ram and dodge scalding oil spilling from the turrets above.



These fortresses can only be assaulted once a realm has pushed their enemies’ resistance back to the fortress itself. This requires them to capture two zones in the Tier 4 Campaign for that pairing. Players must then capture the fortress to lock down the pairing and seize control. Once one realm claims victory over any two of the three pairings, their enemy’s capital city becomes vulnerable to attack.  Players can then rally and unite to focus their efforts on taking their enemy’s city.  This keeps the action intense and helps funnel the players together for the “battle of all battles” as players clash in the streets of the capital cities to claim victory for their Realm.

    I'm just glad to know that the four cities will be physically in the game, they just won't be "living" cities. That was what concerned me the most.

    Srsly, MMORPG.com.  You need to make every member of your staff look up the word "capitol" in the dictionary.  You're doing it wrong.

    Mythic will balance the realm population, so no realm will be the underdog. I hope it works.

    Uh no they wont...there'll be only 2 cities period at launch.  You won't even be able to walk around the other 4 at all.  Basically they're Living Cities or they don't 'exist'.   The post on tentonhammer saying other wise was fabricated.

    Tier 4 is not the cities Tier 4 is the RvR areas & Fortresses outside of the city.  Tier 5 is the city, though they don't really call that  Tier.

    Um yes they will. Quoted from the article:

    "Your king has not been lost. You can visit him in your Realm’s capital city within the war planning room, strategizing the next plan of attack on the battlefield. New opportunities arise to crush your enemies once you gain his respect and attention."

    When they refer to the realm capital they are referring to Altdorf for the order and Inevitable city for destruction. It would be different if they said it was in your racial capital. Each race is not a realm, because WAR has only had 2 factions to begin with even before the cuts.

    Ah, thanks for pointing that out. Sheesh... what a kick in the groin to the lore...

    No its not..the capital still exists in lore .. but game wise the fight is over an allianced capital so naturally your sort of 'stationed' there until your called back which at time would be when the dev's put in the other capitals.

    It is still sad to me that Mythic is leaving out necessary content just to make a launch date. I guess EA has a bigger say in WAR then we are lead to believe.
