I only played DAOC very briefly...I can some some similarities but really it is leaps and bounds ahead of DAOC graphic wise.

You kids still going for the fanboism card anytime someone says something you don't like to hear eh? two games that had a real chance at becoming real popular came and went. One had a major movie liscense going for it, the other had a rather unique world and a noticable graphics upgrade as well as nudity, and still failed. This game has nothing special going for it besides being based on a world only nerds know about (seriously, most GAMERS don't know what warhammer is). I seriously doubt its going to have any better success.

WTF are you talking about? Some of the most successful franchises were created from scratch... UO, EQ are 2. I hope you're not referring to AoC. That game caters to the crowd that think graphics = gameplay. It's probably the most shallow online game I've ever played.

The current best 2 MMOs are WoW and LOTRO and one is based off a movie-book. WAR is going to be insanely popular because it copies both of those and is PvP-centric unlike AoCs "PvP" ROFL! There is a winning formula with general game mechanics that WoW, LOTRO, and WAR all use. They are based on gameplay, either PvE or PvP, not graphics.

LOL, are you serious?. LOTRO is very far from failing, the game has a very strong player base, on my server there is always tons of people online, and Mines of Moria expansion is going to be something huge, epic. This game is already a success, very far from WoW of course, but isn't going to die soon.

Warhammer has been okay so far. The biggest improvement they've made over WOW is making it more solo friendly. You don't need to be in an uber-guild to do a public quest or find an open group to join. It's the whole "alone together" idea of playing a solo game surrounded by thousands of other players. You just do your own thing and kinda fall into group play. I'm only level 7, but I haven't come across any Raid instances that require 40 organized players and a week of preparation in order to see game content and rewards. You can play WAR as a game, not a job. Maybe that's not for some people, but personally I love it.

The game could use some more polish, and the beta is full of bugs. But I like it so far. I'll give it a go, but I don't wanna throw away 2 years of my life like I did with WOW.

I've been playing WAR and SPORE this week, and I've been having more fun with SPORE.

Sell me a cheap copy of War.

I don't feel like paying retail price... especially after you talked me into AOC.

I've downloaded the 10gigs of the open beta a week ago
And since the beginning of the beta, the war europe website shows news about all the problemes GOA has: impossibility to create an account, to register a beta key etc
It's been three days now, and we still can't register an account...
I uninstalled the game.

I didn't talk you into anything. I told you my honest opinion of AoC at that time. Little did I know the content ran out at lvl 50. I have fun with it for two months then it went into the garbage.

This game is more fun than AoC but I would wait if you are on the fence. If the content runs out again I will be pissed and won't be playing any MMOs ever again.

Bah I dislike starting MMOs late because then I am behind everyone...

Anyway, I just renewed my WoW Account for 6 months.
