I just pre-ordered WAR. It looks like it is going to be a GREAT game! Here is the info on the pre-order:

I've been interested/following WAR for a couple of years and had planned to be there at launch but after the wife and I started playing AoC...not so sure now.

Will have to see how things go as we get closer to WAR's launch.

WAR will have to have an extremely exceptional launch to pull AOC people away. WAR needs to be fully polished before it launches. I know most of them are not looking for another auto-attack WOW clone. AOC really needs to get polished up quickly to keep it successful too.

Simple question... Have you been in the Beta (in WAR that is) and did that change your mind to pre-order ?

Well said, I couldn't agree more. AoC's novelty will wear off eventually and some much-needed polish is what will keep it going.

I have had 2 copies of the collectors edition preordered for about 3 months now, and I'm really looking forward to the open beta. I've been constantly reading the beta leaks forums to try and keep up with the progress of the game. I would drop AOC, and every other game I play right now for Warhammer, period.

I play MMOs for a rich storyline. The last one I played and liked was FFXI Online. Final Fantasy has an AMAZING storyline. The AoC has a good storyline too, but I did not like the game mechanics.

I am quite confident WAR will have a great storyline as well.

Everyone I have talked to that is in the beta says that War is kinda boring. I hope it isn't. I as most who have been following the development of this game want it to be fantastic. This is key, if the game play is boring then no amount of content or graphics will help the game.

If you want rich storyline, then you owe it to yourself to give AOC a try. They have amazing quests and story...I plan on trying WAR later on, but right now I'm stoked with AOC...

AoC is where I will stay until Diablo mmorpg or something like that comes out.

Follow up. Have cancelled AoC and preordered WAR so we can get into O.B.

AoC ended up being a let down and got boring for us pretty fast. None of my buddies who got into the game with us are playing any longer either.


Sooooo...here's keeping my hopes up for WAR.

I deleted the beta yesterday... I was already bored with the game at lvl 32. Combat system is a joke after playing AoC... hell WoW has a better combat system...

Oh and if you don't believe I was in the beta...

You have now lost any credibility in my eyes. AoC's combat system is the biggest lawl, ever. I just hate the fact I wasted $50 on that turd even after playing the beta and knowing full well what I was getting into.

AoC combat system was fun for a while, but the novelty is sortof wearing off.
Often it doesnt seem to detect that Im pressing a direction key and the combo just fades out instead of trigger.
And when Im chasing some dude trying to trigger a multistage combo meanwhile, I accidently break it by moving while its playing.. its getting to be more in the way now..

Did you give up on AoC and go back to WoW Ninja?

Indeed....
I will be giving wow up for this game.
I have even just bought myself a **** hot new pc with a 28" monitor just for it :)
Cant wait!

Heh ditto that. I wish I had that $100 back too. I did the beta and convinced myself it would be better if the wife played and I got outta Tortage.

Self delusion FTL I guess. Still reading the AOC forums watchin for the patch that makes the game fun (for me) but haven't seen it yet.

They have cut 4 classes and 4 cities from the game.

I have canceled my pre-order.

One capital per faction might make the fighting for them more intense.
What classes were cut? Its not like there is a huge lack of classes in the game though.
I got a good feeling about mythic, they seem to take drastic meassures when they feel they need to, instead of doing the easy thing and just release with glaring issues.
Cutting stuff isnt always bad, usually not very good either, but hey? sometimes you gotta do something..

In the latest of an ongoing series of interviews with MMORPG.com, Mythic Entertainment VP and General Manager Mark Jacobs has dropped big news on the Warhammer Online fanbase: major features are being culled from the game in order to make their Fall launch deadline. In short, the capital cities for the Dark Elf, High Elf, Orc, and Dwarf factions will not be in the game at launch. The Human city of Altdorf and the Chaos Inevitable City will be the only Capital cities in the game. This is an enormous change, seemingly changing much of what we know about the game's core of RvR gameplay.

Additionally, four classes are being removed, deemed to be in a condition unsuitable for launch. They are:

The Choppa (Greenskin)
The Hammerer (Dwarf)
The Blackguard (Dark Elf)
The Knight of the Blazing Sun (Empire)
As the website notes, all of these are melee classes and two of these were intended to be the primary tanking classes for their race. This leaves the Empire and Dark Elf races without a dedicated tanking career, possibly limiting their contributions to end-game PvE content.
http://war-universe.com/omg-choppa-not-ingame--t416.html-sid=b16f0b9911fbca81d4e8c6909f8035b4


Only two races will have capital cities. There is now only one Greenskin class. Also, the Empire does not have a tank class, but their arch enemies (Chaos) has a tank class. The Empire will be slaughtered on the field of battle.

With only one city per faction, it doesnt matter THAT much that empire as a class has no tank does it? I mean all races will meet in the fight between those 2 cities, and in battlegrounds..
Or is there any place where groups of only one race clash with another race of opposite faction?
I havenīt played so Iīm a bit sketchy on the details on the game..

I guess EA is pushing them a bit on the release, but I think I prefer their decision to cut things instead of releasing with wacky balancing or whatever the issue they have is..
