SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,619MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Kai Schober has penned a new blog post on the Warhammer Online site laying out the celebratory activities and rewards for the game's third anniversary.

For the next ten days, players will be able to take advantage of double XP and RP. In addition, the team has new veteran rewards with some fun twists:



  • Jack O Lantern Vanity Pet – An exclusive pet for players that is available in four different colors.  This awesome seasonally themed pet is available only through the veteran rewards program.


  • Endless Chaos Black Dye – This item will give you an endless supply of Chaos Black dye to deck out your armor in style!


  • Endless Blazing Orange Dye – This item will give you an endless supply of Blazing Orange dye to make you stand out in battle, plus the color is perfect for the season!

Lastly, Schroeber writes that fortresses are on the way in the near future and the Demon Moon will be rising again very soon.

    Worst managed sub MMO on the market? 

    Most starved game in terms of finance considering the IP?

    Worst dev team in the buisness atm ? 

    Least amount of content any game has released in 3 years ?

    Most features removed from a MMO game in the past 5 years ?

    Shall I go on ?  Cause the list is much longer.

     

    The only positive.

    Only MMO game that focuses on PVP over PVE.  And the result ?  Lack of funds to create new content leading to dead game. 

    Now...  Learn from it.

    They're already putting stats enhancements in the cash shop even with the sub fee, can't imagine what they'd have there with F2P :(

  • AkulasAkulas GoldcoastPosts: 1,617Member Uncommon

    I'd rather it die than go f2p.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    i pay, and play, for pvp, this is the game, at least in a non ffa enviroment. for pve...im still lost...

  • GorweGorwe Ald'RuhnPosts: 2,474Member Uncommon
    Please Mythic...for the love of Isha...just stop ruining Warhammer IP. It has SOOOO much more to it than your little brains can ever fathom(especially Carry Mc Burgeros'). It physically pains me to see what they are doing with it(Warhammer can be quite PvE friendly-examples:Warhammer Roleplay,Inquisitor...but not just regarding that). Example: one of Slayer's Paths(talent trees) is called "Path of the Skavenslayer"(AoE popular one)...and yet they are siding with Skaven???O.0

    why hasn't gamesworkshop yanked the IP from EA/Mythic?

    All that hype leading up to launch ends in a giant thud!

    I'd love to see their financial numbers!

    How many paying subs do they really have?

    Skeleton crew dev team

    how many times has RvR been "revamped"?

    so many questions to ponder why this game has failed so miserably I doubt even free to play would save it, if it was even possible to implament

    But I give them credit for lasting 3 years, doubt it will last much longer, EA is bound to pull the plug on this disaster eventually

    as has been said before.... shoulda just made it DAOC 2

  • DerWotanDerWotan NorrathPosts: 1,012Member

    great IP, former great team, tons of hype and lets see how they ended up....with a crappy ultraeasy game instead of Daoc 2 with Warhammer skin.

    Does anyone know, why they didn't want it to be DaoC 2?

    Seeing WoH makes me poke I really hope GW will pull the IP from them soon.

    We need a MMORPG Cataclysm asap, finish the dark age of MMORPGS now!

    If you like Warhammer's RvR, play TOR when it comes out. BioWare owns Mythic now, y'know.

    At least WAR tried something different and as far as I'm concerned, it still has one of the best PvP in any MMO today.


     

     

    agreed with this. I wish the game could get some revival like DDO did

    well technicaly i think its EA that owns Bioware and Mythic?

     

    and yes i think out of all the pvp experiences i have ever had WAR had that down pat. they just made the mistake of thinking that 24/7 pvp with some questing to level up would be enough.

    a game needs more than one element to keep players actively coming back. one of those things is an economy with meaningful crafting. another would be a larger pve game.

    the only mmo thats actually fun to play for a while is WAR, my god are the others boring.... ive tried so hard to find a new one, but it fails every single time.

  • xpanderxpander TallinnPosts: 13Member

    WAR is still live and kicking, EU servers at least are pretty active in all tiers when u play on primetime ofc. theres plenty of openRvR action going on. sadly there is not enaugh new content do the game.

    but 1.4.5 should introduce fortresses in new way again. so there is little hope to go back after the patch is deployed.

    with WAR i usually play like 1-2 months. then i quit due the lack of content..but there is really no new modern game with such a good pvp, so i allways tend to go back to WAR at some time.

    Just fyi war has no dev team left.  The full mythic team from WAR is working on SWTOR, and they work on WAR in very SPARE time.

    How is AoC a wow clone in ANY shape or form?

    WAR dev team is not working on SWTOR.

    picture from bloggers visit: http://a.yfrog.com/img740/5223/55qp.jpg

    4 bloggers + devteam, some engineers not on the picture also.

    so its even bigger..but they work on WoH and WAR. And prolly more steam goes to WoH project than WAR

  • FailFail BrnoPosts: 34Member

    what really saddens me, that the Warhammer 40k MMO is making the same wrong decisions as people over at Mythic did about Warhammer... because leaving no room for role play when its basically for fans of a game, which is about role play? oh really?

    Yeah this post made me pretty much just go

    *blinks*

    *boggles*

    really?  Have you actually played WoW or AoC?  lol, I'll grant that Rift is a lot like WoW but in all honesty to me Rift felt more like playing Warhammer than anything else :P

    War PvP is only good if you like gear based PvP where you can mash your face against the keyboard and beat people who don't have as good of gear as you do.  For myself I prefer skill based PvP where everyone's gear is around the same and your actions and skill determine the outcome.  Not simply stacking up stats and auto-winning like War has :/

    Hate to say blah but if I was still in Warhammer now they are saying I would get endless black dye, which I already have.  Yet another vanity pet that disappears the moment you enter RvR area or are RvR flagged with is 99.99999% of the time ingame, hehe.

    ARGHH!  Add a true 3rd faction and the game might have a rebirth.  Or even better make a new server type where the six races are all broken up into six or three seperate factions and I bet there would be some influx of new players and returning players.

    First off...Welcome to mmorpg Xpander. I know that you are from Warhammer forums...but if you love Warhammer I.P. even a little, you'll let WAR die. I'll give an example: Yesterday I was reading "Choice of Hatreds" an introductory novel to the Mathias Thulmann's novel series(written by C.L.Wernberg). A simple novel of twenty,YES TWENTY,pages(which featured a single battle with a single Pink horror to boot) had more Warhammer Spirit than 1/2 of WAR. There are more examples: Witch Hunters/Elves hiding(lolwut? Hunters demoralize enemies by purposefully showing themselves and Elves are downright narcissicistic...why would they hide in Isha's name?). Then there are Asurmen who are THE MOST BROKEN race I've ever seen in a game,let alone MMO(is any of their class working as intended[AM's are supposed to be healers,not Warlock like, so no DPS AM crap]?).

    As is evident I care about Warhammer(hell I have like 5 omnibuses from 40k and soon two from Fantasy-that's like 30 books). I even have TWELVE inactive characters because when I tried WAR I was naive and thought it would get better. After Pay to Win pet(s) I finally understand that WAR is Warhammer just cosmetically(if more people understood that maybe some other,better company could get a shot to try bringing Fantasy to life). Companies include(but not limited to): Relic/Vigil(boy was SpaceMarine good),Arena Net(they make AWESOME MMO's) or some Asian company(Perfect World would literally KILL to get Warhammer I.P.). When I think I'd rather have Gobbos(or Druchii-says leaps and bounds) running Warhammer MMO than Failythic.

    Anyways...I just want to get proper Warhammer Fantasy game(even if it is single player and Bethesda made it). Because 40k now has like 3(with Dark Millenium 4) true Warhammer games. Yet fantasy has got what...(that is true question)?

    I'd come back for that.

  • GorweGorwe Ald'RuhnPosts: 2,474Member Uncommon
    You can't really do that because you'd end with something Like Dwarf+Chaos or Empire+Druchii(Asurmen+Orkz works from lore side imo).
