Default Re: Wow or WH Online

After playing WOW for so long I really want to try out WAR (as they short it, WH: age of reconing).
Dunno if itīll be better, but I hope so..

Me and a buddy had some discussions on how a major problem in WOW is that when you think about it, PVP seems like a afterthought.
Most classes have separate PVE and PVP talent builts, and gear.. IMO ideal would be if you didnt have to choose, you just got better gear and different talent builts, but they all were equally viable in PVP as in PVP.

WAR seems very PVP oriented so Im hoping it will be a bit better with that sort of stuff in mind.
And if it isnt, well, there are always more WOW expansions hehe.


I really hope they pull it off with the 40K MMO that is in the works, there is SO much potential in that universe so they should be exiled to the moon if they mess it up.

I'm really hoping WAR is a better PVP game than WOWs lackluster offering of arenas and BGs. I imagine levelling wont be as much of a grind since you gain xp through PVP as well.

I check my email daily in the hopes of getting an invite to the beta. Even with 3 WOW toons at 70 I'm starting to find the game boring.

Beta access is closed right now, they only have internal testers right now. They said they will reactivate testers accounts come Feb.

The in-game videos I've seen of WH online so far indicate awkward character animations and non-engaging combat scenes. I'm still keeping an eye on it, though.

The beta they had going last year was VERY early... im talking half the races and classes only available... quest and dialogs were all missing or just plain broken aswell as animations not working properly.

I remember fighting without actually animating at all.

That is what I noticed. The characters had stubby legs and stubby arms. It just looked odd.

Currently I've given up the wow habit. Been playing some lotro a few times a week. It's a rather underlooked good game. It's sad i know but i have been playing it till war comes out. And sadder is i am kinda hoping that war will force blizzard to really create territory control pvp like they first promised during wows closed beta. If blizzard doesn't then i'll prolly stick to lotro for my 'questing' and war for my pvp, and perma retire my 70s.
