    What it needs is a competent company behind it.

    The journal/book/tracker thingy (forget what they called it) was pretty cool.  Tracked every damn detail for every zone... Good for those who like to grind achievements and such.

    The PvP was fast paced and enjoyable (as far as battleground instanced PvP goes).

    Unfortunately the PvE side of the game was just bad.  WAR is a prime example of why PvP does not belog in MMORPG's.  This game was CENTERED around PvP and it failed.  There are not enough PvP players to sustain a game like this.  Anyone who really cares about player vs player action is off playing HON, LoL, DOTA, CS, Half-Life, Quake, Starcraft....  Real games with balanced fields where skill matters. 

    It has always been my opinion that PvP in MMO's has always been for the small group who want an advantage over other players because they invested more time rather than because they're more skilled...

    Statistically this has been proven false many times by many sources... Independant polls over the years have shown that far more players participate in PVP on a consistant basis then those who participate in Raiding. WAR's decline had nothing at all to do with the PVP. The problems were with the developer Mythic.

    They let a design team continue to give thier favorite classes major balance buffs over the other classes in the game. ( Bright Wizard, WitchElf etc.)

    The kept trying to overhaul a system that was working to make it easier in an attempt to pull subscriptions away from WoW.

    They never had plans to or did release any significant ammount of expanded content post release. 

    They would ban the accounts of players in game who spoke out against the design team on the forums.

    They fraudulently charged players multiple subscriptions for a single month on at least 3 different occasions when they couldnt afford their bills. And then proceeded to pay back these overcharges when it was "convenient".

     

    This is why WAR failed. And none of those things had anything to do with the PVP. The game even today still has massive PVP battel at almost any time during teh day consisting of hundreds of players on each team fighitng over neutral battlezones and objectives as well as smaller bands of 30 - 50 player teams in the Tier 2 and 3 content fighting over the RVR lakes. Tier 1 unlimited free trial was brilliant until they changed the levelling cap for the tiers giving paid players a significant level gap over the free trial players. All in all some of the best PVP released  since DAOC.

    You obviously haven't played the original GW where PvP is the primary end game and the advantage goes to the more skilled player as all gear for each class is equal across the board.

    Who cares now?

  • tawesstawess LkpgMember Posts: 3,501 Rare

    Sooo... They gave it a new web-page... .. . I am impressed, i thought that after releasing the scenario game they would just drop this like a wet sock. Still... There is no saving this game sadly.

    This have been a good conversation

  • MephsterMephster Tyria, NJMember Posts: 1,188

    They should be more concerned about making their game more user friendly...

    Grim Dawn, the next great action rpg!

    Lol, they were talking about updating the website over a year and half ago, when I last had a sub.  Took them a year and half to do that.  And before that, the news section hadn't been updated in a year.  I just saw patch version 1.4.5 was released as well.  They released 1.4 over a year ago (the patch that killed what little game was left) and they still have not even made it to 1.5?  I know it's just some numbers but damn.
