Isnt that a bug with the global cooldown?

the global cooldown is 1.5s (exactly the same as WoWs) but the abilitis reload after 2s

That is going to be fixed in the next patch from what I heard.

The normalmapped armors with specularity and everything look really slick.
Been playing Chosen in the closed beta, armor parts look really awesome, the chosen is prolly the awesomest looking thing in the universe to date... Awesomest...

Not as contrasted, colorful and glowy as WOW gear, which I guess is sorta cool in its own way, but just dark, awesome, metal, and lots of it.

I honestly don't know. I just got in the BETA this last Friday. I just noticed that as the wizard or the fire mage guy I was constantly waiting for a cool down. It was annoying but not enough to make me not want to play. I really liked that class. I love slamming my staff down on the ground and a huge fire aoe explosion bursts out. It looks really cool.

I really like the way the gear looks in War.

I HATE the way WoW's armor looks. It is for people who want to look pretty. LOOK AT ME AIM A NEON SIGN AND THE MOaR NEON THE MOaR WASEOMENESS I EXUDE! Everything has to glow bright, spin, rotate, and explode. Friking annoying. I would rather be in rags and kick as than be a Las Vegas casino sign.

WELCOME TO WoW!

I thought GCD was set at 2 seconds or is that what you mean when you say ability reloads? I think that's why alot of WOW guys are bitching about the combat, which is silly.

Huh? I wasn't complaining about the combat system. It is the same as WoW's. I made an observation that the cool downs on that fire mage guy are slow and annoying if you are not used to it. If I want to play the game then I will have to get used to it.

nah, I wasn't referring to you...its the idiots in WOW forums. They are really reaching for an excuse to hate the game, and they don't want anyone else to play it either.

edit. Mark Jacobs talking about Preview Weekend, and yes global cooldown is mentioned.

Dewd! Do not go to the WoW forums. That is a collection of the biggest knobs in the free world. I hate that place with a passion.

I am a fan of all gaming. I give each game a chance, if it has the graphics style and game play I like.

(4) Global Cooldown Timers –This seems to be a hot topic for players to talk about. However, things aren’t always as they seem.
- Reality and perception are two different things, Warhammer has a GCD of 1.4s, WoW has 1.5s
- “Ability not ready” messaging needs to be improve, a sound effect if Global Cooldown in effect, maybe more cowbell?
- Need to improve on the feeling of sluggishness of the GCD and UI. Bug with display where our timer shows 2s when it is really 1.4
- The next best thing to a queue is? We will add in better "slop timer" to allow players 0.3s extra to pre-queue a second ability followup.
That is how it should be. I love pre-queuing.

Yes, the WoW forums should be treated as a source of entertainment only.

I just go for the OT forums, and it the worst one out of all them, lol. I'm just posting on a friends account until it expires since mine has been banned from WOW boards.

You can see the dithering on alot of things so there has to be more advanced options on release of the game. But to say theres no difference betweenw ar and wow is silly. It's essentially the same as comparing a 2k model to a 10+k (normal mapped)model
This is all probably true. However, it still looks like ass, because their art team seems to have the skill of a retard with a watercolor paint set from walmart.

WoW has low poly models, low res textures, and a DX7 renderer, yet their awesome art design team manages to make stuff look pretty good when working with such crap.

I mean come on, its 2008, you can't make a game look better than 2004 with computers that have 10x the average power and RAM? Fail.
